There Richard Painter was, standing in front of a couple thousand Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party devotees who likely would not support the man they knew best as a frequent Republican contributor to cable television news shows. His audience gave him more than a polite reception, and nearly 18 percent voted for him, no doubt in a large part because he said at that Rochester convention what he says everywhere: Republican President Donald Trump should be impeached.

NEW YORK — Comcast is reporting a stronger-than-expected second-quarter profit even as it struggles to keep cable TV subscribers.On Thursday, the company reported a 22 percent jump in earnings to $3.22 billion, or 69 cents per share. Earnings, adjusted for non-recurring gains, were 65 cents per share, which, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research, was 4 cents better than expected.Revenue rose 2.1 percent to $21.74 billion in the period, just short of expectations. The company added 260,000 high-speed internet customers during the quarter, though it has been struggling overall as it lost 140,000 video customers.The mixed quarterly results follow the Philadelphia-based company's decision last week to drop its $66 billion bid for Fox's entertainment business. The Walt Disney Co. had topped that offer with $71 billion as part of a bidding war. The move freed Comcast to focus on its other potential acquisition, European pay TV operator Sky, a deal that would help the … [Read more...] about Comcast tops profit forecasts; cable TV subscriptions fall
Paul Egan Detroit Free Press Published 10:01 p.m. UTC Jul 6, 2018 LANSING — Create a state-operated Internet service provider. Appoint a school reading czar. Use corporate-sponsored videos in social studies classes to try to steer students into high-vacancy jobs. Those were among the responses received when the Free Press asked the seven major-party candidates for governor to each step up with just one new idea to address a Michigan problem — large or small — along with how to pay for it. Other ideas? Eliminate the state income tax. Shake up the Michigan Department of Transportation to reflect a new emphasis on self-driving vehicles and borrow up to $20 billion to fix roads and other crumbling infrastructure. Transform welfare programs into jobs programs. Spend more than $3.6 billion on a raft of programs to draw more women into the workforce. With just one month to go before the Aug. 7 primary, four Republicans and three Democrats are … [Read more...] about Does anyone running for governor have a new idea? We asked the candidates
