Twenty years of the Beckhams: how they ushered in our era of personal branding

Today 05:10 GMT

If even Brand Beckham has begun to plan for a future life behind the camera, rather than always having to be in front of it, that really would be the end of an era.

And, in that light, it is perhaps significant that David Beckham and his long-time manager Simon Fuller (who originally founded the Spice Girls and whose company, XIX Management, owns a third of the Beckhams’ family company, Brand Beckham Holdings) recently signed a deal to develop branded products for other sports stars, which would ensure it doesn’t always have to be David’s face on the packaging and his personal life on the line.

How do you pay taxes on bitcoin Congress demands explanation

Thursday 20:01 GMT

US lawmakers asked the the Internal Revenue Service how US residents should pay taxes on bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, in a remarkable letter that shows just how unregulated the cryptocurrency space remains.

Andrew McCarthy: Media-Democrat complex whines over AG Barr’s press conference on Mueller report release

Today 12:40 GMT

The caterwauling over the press conference called by the Justice Department so Attorney General William Barr can formally announce the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report is another unabashed demonstration of the real collusion played out over the last three years: the media and the Democrats.

How remarkable to hear Democrats and their media friends – authors of the years-long “collusion with Russia” narrative that is increasingly exposed to be an effort to rationalize Hillary Clinton’s defeat and undermine Donald Trump’s presidency – bleat that it’s the attorney general who is spinning.

Hans von Spakovsky: Mueller report clearing Trump should prompt Congress to halt endless investigations

Today 12:40 GMT

The report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller released Thursday by Attorney General William Barr confirms that Barr was completely accurate when he told Congress in March that Mueller found no evidence of collusion or coordination between the Trump election campaign and Russian officials.

The fact that Mueller never did subpoena Trump is evidence that Mueller felt he had obtained all the information he needed without a face-to-face interview with the president.
