Today's edition of quick hits:
* It's been quite a year for politics, hasn't it? "Roger Ailes resigned as chairman and CEO of Fox News Thursday, after days of speculation as to his future with the network after a sexual harassment lawsuit was filed against him by a former anchor, 21st Century Fox said."
* When an unarmed man is lying on the ground, with his hands in the air, and gets shot anyway, there's a problem: " A North Miami behavior therapist trying to help a patient with autism says he was shot in the leg by cops responding to the scene -- even after he laid down on the pavement and put his hands in the air."
* France: "Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, who killed 84 people in a terrorist attack in Nice, France, last week, planned his assault over several months and got help from at least five people, the Paris prosecutor said on Thursday."
* Brazilian police "have arrested 10 people suspected of planning terrorist attacks during the Rio Olympics, Brazilian prosecutors said Thursday."
* The response to the failed coup isn't nearly over: "The day after Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, declared a national state of emergency in the wake of a failed coup, an anxious nation awoke on Thursday to a text message from its leader, personally exhorting continued loyalty as the government moved against its enemies."
* DOJ: "The Justice Department filed lawsuits on Thursday to block two huge health insurance mergers, extending a string of antitrust actions that have made this year the largest on record for abandoned deals."
* The best numbers since 1973: "The number of applications for U.S. unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week, reaching a three-month low, indicating the labor market remains steady. Initial jobless claims dropped by 1,000 to 253,000 in the week ended July 16, from an unrevised 254,000 in the prior period, a report from the Labor Department showed Thursday in Washington."
