Marketers will have to fundamentally change how they do their business, which could dent publishers and just end up strengthening Google and Facebook.

In a court hearing on Wednesday, a lawyer for Assange reportedly told a British judge a bizarre st...

Pelosi Objects to CNN Anchor’s Claim That Trump Was Acquitted in Impeachment Trial

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) interjected during an interview Saturday to make the case that President Trump was not acquitted from impeachment because his Senate trial lacked additional witnesses and documents demanded by Senate Democrats.“You can’t have an acquittal unless you have a trial, and you can’t have a trial unless you have witnesses and documents — so he can say he’s acquitted, and the headlines can say ‘acquitted,’ but he’s impeached forever: branded with that, and not vin...
