The question is did the media totally fail to undertand this (being somewhat less than semi-intelligent) - and are thus unfit for purpose? Or did they deliberately misrepresent it for their own ends - and thus are unfit for purpose?
Either way: never believe anything you read in the media - it may not be entirely untrue, but it's very unlikey not to be somewhat untrue
Edit: the real issue is that, as it stands, anyone - regardless of wealth - can, indeed, turn up and claim shelter, and maybe this means in some cases, that some who do not actually need it may abuse the facility - to the detriment of those who genuinely do.
Whether agree with Bloomberg that this is a bad thing is up to you.
