He made musical history time and time again, winning the Grammy Living Legend Award, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and having his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He is Michael Jackson. And Jackson, according to the recently released documentary “Leaving Neverland,” was a sexual predator and a pedophile.

This past Tuesday, the federal government lost another effort to unravel AT&T’s billion-dollar merger with Time Warner that was officially announced in June of 2018. Merger mania has plagued the telecommunications industry as service providers are seeking to heavily expand their consumer bases and put out quality content at the same time.

EDITORIAL: Executive order has potential problems

(03/06/19 5:00am)

An eruption of applause and cheers from conservative activists, clad in “Make America Great Again” merchandise, followed President Donald J.
