    AT&T announced that it was buying Time Warner for $85.4 billion in October 2016. The Justice Department sued last year to block the merger, citing concerns that AT&T, owner of satellite television provider DirecTV, could charge rival distributors more for Time Warner content, resulting in higher prices for consumers. The outcome of the trial could have implications for future deals in the telecom and media industries, as well as vertical mergers, where companies combine with their suppliers. A federal judge said Tuesday that AT&T's $85.4 billion purchase of Time Warner is legal, clearing the path for a deal that gives...

    (CNSNews.com) -- Criticizing some of the liberal media's coverage of the U.S-North Korea summit on denuclearization, President Donald Trump said "Fake News" outlets NBC and CNN are trying to "downplay" the summit, a deal they would have praised a year ago, and added that America's "biggest enemy is Fake News," which is "so easily promulgated by fools!" In a June 13 tweet, the president wrote, "So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN. they are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea."

    A Rolling Stone writer speculated on Twitter that First Lady Melania Trump could be the victim of spousal abuse by President Donald Trump, hence her recent public absence.

She will not travel with the president for the G7 summit in Quebec this week, and there are also no plans for her to join him in Singapore for his June 12 meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Her last appearance in an official capacity was on May 10,...

    President Trump has chosen economist Larry Kudlow to replace Gary Cohn as his senior economic advisor and leader of the National Economic Council. Kudlow, best known for his time as a host on CNBC of "The Kudlow Report," will join the administration in the coming weeks. Cohn is leaving on good terms after disagreeing with the President on the implementation of tariffs. "This is Gary Cohn's last meeting in the Cabinet and of the Cabinet. He has been terrific. He may be a globalist but I still like him," Trump said last week. "And he is a globalist there's...

Last spring, Ratigan was hired by his former MSNBC colleague, Cenk Uygur, as a contributor to his Young Turks Network. Uygur said that Ratigan will...

A website monitoring Russia-linked Twitter accounts found that their use of #releasethememo increased nearly 300,000 percent in just a few days.

    Seven members of a cable television crew have been arrested after they tried to sneak a fake explosive device through a security checkpoint at Newark Liberty International Airport, the Transportation Security Administration said Thursday. A law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation said that the team was filming for cable network CNBC, which is based in Englewood Cliffs. The TSA did not release the names of the people they said were arrested, and the Port Authority only said that it was investigating the incident. The law enforcement source said the crew likely would be charged by the Essex County...

The House Intelligence Committee released their cherry-picked examples of “Russian Facebook ads” in November.

After receiving their marching orders from CNN, the media swung into action: This includes Vanity Fair, Natasha Bertrand at Business Insider, The Daily Mail, Fortune, The Hill, Reuters, and CNBC.

    Life Time has scrubbed all-news cable channels from the screens at its fitness centers, saying a growing number of customers think they don’t fit a healthy lifestyle. The Chanhassen-based company this week dropped CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and CNBC from TVs in front of various workout machines. While the screens were in view of all in fitness areas, audio could only be heard through earphones. With a few exceptions, TV screens built into treadmills and other cardio machines also “currently do not have the ability to display these channels,” Life Time spokeswoman Natalie Bushaw said Thursday. However, a second phase...

    On Sunday morning, Thomas Beaumont and Nicholas Riccardi at the Associated Press did all they could to convince readers that the tax bill just passed by Congress and signed by Donald Trump isn't seen as a big deal and has no genuine enthusiastic support (even though they found some) among those who voted for him in 2016. They predictably claimed that the law bestows "its richest benefits on companies and wealthy individuals,' and employed a classic statistical deception to support that false contention.Here are the opening paragraphs of the pair's downbeat report, with the final excerpted paragraph presenting the misleading statistics (bolds...

Senator Bob Corker supported the bill at the last minute, after the language was added. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican in the Senate, was pushed by news-makers on Sunday to explain a last minute addition to the final tax bill that could benefit those with real estate income. The provision calls for a tax deduction on income made from "pass through" entities, like real estate LLCs, including those with...

    With the latest sexual harassment news about MSNBC's Chris Matthews having to pay a $40,000 settlement to an assistant producer for Hardball in 1999, can anybody be really surprised? The reason is that Matthews over the years has a record of very strange behavior of a leering nature around women, much of it recorded for posterity. Two notable examples are presented below, starting with the the uncomfortable 2007 incident in which Matthews asked then-CNBC's Street Signs host Erin Burnett to lean in closer to the camera so he could get a better look at her (and presumably her chest).

    GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander told CNBC that he will vote again for an amnesty, even though his vote for the Democratic-led 2013 amnesty bill helped demolish his establishment GOP peers during the 2016 primaries and election. “We need a legal immigration system, and we need to put that behind us,” he told CNBC’s John Harwood. “We tried to do it in 2013; I voted for it. It would’ve solved many of the problems … I would vote for it again.”

    Market doomsayer Marc "Dr. Doom" Faber has launched a racially charged diatribe in his latest newsletter, alleging that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people. The eccentric Gloom, Boom & Doom report author, who often speaks on CNBC and other financial media, generally forecasting some type of market downturn, focused his latest comments on the racial conflicts happening around the country. (A CNBC spokesperson said it will not book him in the future.) "And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look...
