Analysts think AT&T's streaming strategy is muddled — and it could be a weakness as rivals Disney and NBCU launch their services

Now that AT&T has closed its Time Warner acquisition, it has a lot of streaming services to manage. It already has DirecTV Now, which has two tiers. It also has WatchTV and HBO Now.

AT&T has a choice problem. Having closed its Time Warner deal, it plans to build a ne...

No sign of imminent North Korea missile launch: South Korea defense chief

Early in March, several American think-tanks and South Korean officials reported that satellite imagery showed possible preparations for a launch from the Sohae rocket launch site at Tongchang-ri, North Korea, which has been used in the past to launch satellites but not intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of delivering a nuclear warhead.

Where’s Mick? The Hands-Off COS Was In Las Vegas During Nat’l Emergency Debacle

WASHINGTON (AP) — As President Donald Trump struggled with mounting Republican defections over his emergency declaration to pay for a border wall, his acting White House chief of staff wasn’t on Capitol Hill cajoling former colleagues or in the West Wing making calls. Instead, Mick Mulvaney was in Las Vegas for an annual getaway with friends and family. It was a telling example of Mulvaney’s laissez-faire approach as he settles into a role that has bedeviled those who came before him. His pre...
