Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao [[ chow ]] is asking her department's inspector general to audit the FAA's approval of the Boeing 737 Max 8 jetliner. The U.S. recently grounded the fleet after two deadly international crashes in less than five months. The U.S. move followed similar actions by a number of other countries.        President Trump claims there's collusion between social media companies and Democrats. Trump spoke at the White House yesterday and said "something needs to be done" about it. He insisted he's seen discrimination against conservatives on several platforms, especially Twitter.        Officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection say a migrant has died at a center in El Paso, Texas. The agency reports the 40-year-old Mexican man died Monday at a medical center where he was being treated for flu-like symptoms and liver and kidney failure. This is the fourth time a migrant has died in CBP custody since December.        Shares in Bayer are plunging after a jury found a California man got cancer from using its Roundup weed killer. Bayer stock fell 12-percent in pre-market trading after the decision. The pharmaceutical giant took control of Roundup after it acquired the Monsanto chemical company last summer.        West Virginia's attorney general is suing a retired priest and the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston for allegedly hiring priests known to be pedophiles. The suit filed Tuesday comes after the Catholic diocese admitted last November it knew of 18 priests who were credibly accused of sexually abusing children from 1950 through last summer. The diocese said in a statement that it has a zero-tolerance policy against abuse by any priests, employees, or volunteers.       MoviePass is once again planning to offer its subscribers unlimited movies at a low price, but with a catch. The company announced Tuesday that it will allow subscribers to see as many movies as they want for about ten-dollars a month, but they must pay for a full year upfront and 3D movies are not included.
