A group backed by the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch has agreed to adjust an ad featuring President Barack Obama and Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) after facing complaints about an insensitive photo.

Families of the Aurora movie theater shooting victims called on the conservative nonprofit Americans for Prosperity to remove the photo upon revelations it was a photoshopped image from when Obama and Udall visited a hospital treating victims of the shooting in July 2012.

Twelve people were killed and 58 were wounded in the

The U.S. military has spent $11.4 million in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, according to officials at the Pentagon.

That includes $3.6 million for underwater surveillance by a Navy submarine and $4,200 per flight hour for the P-8 Orions used to scour the southern Indian Ocean.

The Pentagon has previously said there are no plans to ask the Malaysian government for reimbursement.

So far, the high price comes with few concrete leads. A contingent of countries, which includes Malaysia, Australia and China, have failed to find any physical evidence of where Flight 370 crashed after disappearing March 8 from Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing.

NEW YORK - Miley Cyrus is postponing more concerts as she remains in a hospital for a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics.

A representative says the singer won't perform in Nashville, Tennessee, on Friday and Louisville, Kentucky, on Saturday. Those concerts will be rescheduled.

Cyrus suffered from a sinus infection last week during her "Bangerz" tour. Her rep says she had "an extreme allergic reaction" to the antibiotic cephalexin.

This week, Cyrus also canceled concerts in St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri. She postponed a show in Charlotte, North Carolina, last week because of the flu.

The 21-year-old "Wrecking Ball" singer's next scheduled tour date is Monday in Philad

Divers swam through the water Wednesday searching for the bodies of children in cabins and corridors of the sunken South Korean ferry.

According to Reuters, the divers can only see a few inches in front of them in the wreckage of the ship.

Most of the bodies found had broken fingers, presumably from children frantically trying to climb walls or floors to escape, local media reported, according to Reuters.

"We are trained for hostile environments, but it's hard to be brave when we meet bodies in dark water," diver Hwang Dae-sik told Reuters.

A maritime professor, who spoke with the third mate who was steering the ferry before it sank, said Wednesday that he suspects there was a p

You know those lonely nights and weekends when you're left to your own devices and forced to entertain yourself? Maybe you ponder the meaning of life, maybe you tackle a creative project or maybe you -- wait, let's face it: You probably turn on Netflix. Well your dog faces the same lonely existential crisis and his solution is, naturally, solo fetch.

Hey, it's better than destroying your shoes.

We put together a compilation above of pooches tossing the old ball/stick around by themselves, and uh, to themselves. Watch one determined pup run a ball up a steep set of stairs and run down to catch it, over and over again. And then there are a few pups lucky enough to have an official contra

Large asteroids are hitting the Earth far more often than anyone realized, according to a new warning from a group led by former NASA astronauts. They say the only thing preventing a meteor from destroying a major city is "blind luck."

From 2000 to 2013, the B612 Foundation says 26 meteorites packing the punch of an atomic bomb exploded on Earth. They all landed far from humans.

The group's findings make one realize meteor impacts could be three to 10 times more common than previously thought, "CBS This Morning' contributor Michio Kaku, a physics professor at the City University of New York, explained.

Kaku, author of "The Future of the Mind," said that "a city buster" that could ta

If a teen carrying nothing but a comb can do it, who else could breach airport security and hop aboard the bottom of a plane? That's the question many are asking after a 16-year-old boy sneaked into the wheel well of a Boeing 767 and flew from San Jose, California, to Maui, Hawaii.

The city of San Jose, which owns and operates Mineta San Jose International Airport, is not planning to pursue criminal charges against the teen, Rosemary Barnes, a city public information manager, said Monday.

Immediately after the incident became known, many pointed the finger at the Transportation Security Administration.

While the TSA does play a part in an airport's overall security, its role is lar

The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled by a 6-2 vote that Michigan voters had a right to ban affirmative action in their state via a ballot initiative.

In the controlling opinion, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy stressed that the case was "not about the constitutionality, or the merits, of race-conscious admissions policies in higher education." Instead, the case was about "whether, and in what manner, voters in the States may choose to prohibit the consideration of racial preferences in governmental decisions, in particular with respect to school admissions."

The case, referred to Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, reviewed a 2006 Michigan ballot initiative that ame

A 16-year-old boy from California hopped a fence at the San Jose Airport and snuck into the wheel well of a Hawaiian Airlines flight, stowing away for a five-hour flight, FBI spokesman Tom Simon told ABC News.

Simon said the boy – who ran away from home – passed out inside the unprotected, unpressurized wheel well once the flight got in the air. When the flight landed at Maui Airport at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, the boy was still passed out, Simon said. He did not come to for about an hour.

Ground crews later saw the boy walking around the tarmac, Simon said. He was taken into custody and checked by a doctor and found to have no injuries.

The boy has not been charged with any federal crime

Miss America Nina Davuluri visited Central York High School in York, Pa., on Thursday to speak about diversity. Patrick Farves, an 18-year-old senior, decided it would be the perfect opportunity to ask her in public to be his date for the big dance.

School administrators got wind of the planned stunt and told Farves not to importune the guest speaker.

But Farves went ahead with his prom proposal, presenting the beauty queen with a plastic purple flower.

Davuluri declined graciously, but school officials weren't quite so nice about it. They handed Farves a 3.5-day suspension, although it's to be served in school, where he'll have to work in one classroom with no talking.
