    The bidding wars continue. The sooner these sales are completed, the sooner the Justice Department can challenge them. (Yes, I know I'm cynical -- and not without cause, either.)

    Comcast raises bid for Sky to $34 billion, tops Fox's offer

    Does anyone disbelieve the adage that "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer"? Here ya go:

    Jeff Bezos becomes the richest person in modern history
    Bloomberg, Jul 16 2018 11:50 AM

    Jeff Bezos is the richest person in modern history. The Amazon founder's net worth topped $150 billion Monday morning, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. That's about $55 billion more than Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, the world's second-richest person. Bezos crossed the threshold just as Amazon prepared to kick off its 36-hour summer sales event, Prime Day. The company's share price was $1,825.73 at 11:10 AM, extending its 2018 gain to 56% and giving Bezos a $150.8-billion fortune.

    Twitter has been aggressively removing fake accounts, malicious accounts, suspicious accounts and other accounts belonging to no-account trolls. (Say that five times fast.) There were many more millions of such accounts than we ever imagined.

    Twitter suspended 58 million accounts in final three months of 2017
