In politics and cola

Jul 31, 2014

The NY Times reports that U.S. Attorney is threatening Gov. Andrew Cuomo with an investigation on the ethics case (3,066 shares). "Hole, getting deeper: what seems to have looked 2 Cuomo like good politics looked2 Bharara like obstruction&tampering," Politico's Edward-Isaac Dovere concludes. At Crain's New York BusinessAndrew Hawkins put it a different way: "The Preet hits the fan."

Then the Associated Press reveals Colin Powell may not have been told early on about CIA techniques (799 shares). How did this all come out, you ask? Mother Jones' Clara Jeffery elucidates, "that time a White House staffer accidentally emailed a classified CIA torture memo to the AP."

And then there's this green tanker. "Today it became the first ship to export U.S. oil in nearly 40 years," WSJ's Dennis Berman remarks.

Speaking of stuff that feels a little like oil (in your stomach, anyway), Coca-Cola sales are on the decline and health concerns abound -- so now they have a plan to fix it (548 shares). "[T]he artistic geniuses over at @BW make me miss my graphic design days. check out this cover & story," advises Tara Lachapelle at Bloomberg News.
