    Why the Government is Right to Block the AT&T-Time Warner Merger

    Despite what Randall Stephenson thinks, the Department of Justice’s suit blocking AT&T from acquiring Time Warner’s assets in an $85 billion merger is a great moment for antitrust in America. It’s late, but it’s welcome. Stephenson, the AT&T CEO, has no one but himself to blame. He and his minions effectively tanked their own plans to merge their company—the largest major pay-TV provider in the country and the second-largest wireless carrier...

    Two top former U.S. intelligence officials said Sunday that President Trump is being “played” by President Vladi­mir Putin on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and accused him of being susceptible to foreign leaders who stroke his ego. “By not confronting the issue directly and not acknowledging to Putin that we know you’re responsible for this, I think he’s giving Putin a pass,” former CIA director John Brennan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

    There is no evidence to support fear that your kids could be given marijuana edibles while trick-or-treating on Halloween

    At least two police departments in Massachusetts are warning parents to inspect their children's Halloween candy for marijuana edibles. But there has never been a recorded case of any one giving cannabis candy -- or razor blade apples, or poisoned Kit Kat bars -- to trick or treaters, according to fact checkers and a University of Delaware professor who studies Halloween poisoning myths.

    The launch of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is, without a doubt, a huge event for Google.

That’s because Google only sells them in a handful of markets. The Pixel 2 and Pi...

    'Just like Jurassic Park': Alaska man woken by lynx kittens crashing his deck

    Tim Newton got out of bed, slipped into his Crocs and trudged over to his window. It was just before dawn on a Tuesday, when something woke him up. That wasn't unusual. His home — located near a state park in the outskirts of Anchorage, Alaska — has attracted quite a few furry creatures over the years from moose to bulls.
