President Trump claims there's political discrimination on social media platforms. Speaking at the White House yesterday, Trump said "something needs to be done" because, in his words there's collusion between the social media companies and Democrats. Trump added that he has seen firsthand discrimination against conservatives on several platforms, especially Twitter.        A small town in central Washington is mourning a sheriff's deputy who was killed during a traffic stop. Authorities in Kittitas [[ KIT-ih-TASS ]] say deputies and police tried to stop a vehicle but the driver took off. The driver eventually stopped, and got into a shootout with officers. The deputy and the suspect were both killed.        Much of Nebraska is under a declared state of emergency as record deadly flooding has crippled the region. Three people have died from the flooding in Nebraska, where the agricultural losses alone could exceed a billion dollars. Vice President Mike Pence toured areas hard hit by flood waters Tuesday and promised to cut through some of the red tape to get Nebraska and Iowa federal assistance.        Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant says he'll sign legislation headed to his desk that will ban abortions in that state upon detection of a fetal heartbeat. That's about six weeks into a pregnancy. The bill cleared the General Assembly yesterday.        A huge fire at a petrochemical plant near Houston is finally extinguished after burning for nearly three days. The blaze at the Intercontinental Terminals Company started Sunday morning and spread to ten tanks. The company issued a press release at about 3 a.m. local time announcing that the fire has officially been put out.        Talk show host Wendy Williams says she's been staying in a sober house. The 54-year-old became emotional when she broke the news to her audience yesterday morning. She had taken a two-month-long break recently for what she called health issues.
