Lynch inherits civil rights probes from Holder as U.S. attorney general

Why Hispanics hold the key to the Comcast merger

To ensure its massive merger with Time Warner Cable stays on track, Comcast has invested heavily in lobbying and advertising aimed at federal officials reviewing the deal. And as part of its Washington blitz, Comcast is turning to another powerful group to help make its case: Hispanic Americans. Hispanics are quickly becoming vital to Comcast's merger prospects, in part because of how directly the $45 billion deal could affect them.

BOXED IN ON OBAMACARE

BOXED IN ON OBAMACARE

It's revealing because it lays bare the motives of the Affordable Care Act's most determined detractors. Conservatives have plenty of genuine, intellectually honest reservations about the changes that came with Obamacare. They don't like the new government spending and regulation, for example. In some...
