Feeding Antibiotics to Chickens, Creating Superbugs for Humans? The World Health Organization reports that resistance to antibiotics threatens a major achievement of modern medicine. Now, the Reuters News Service has reported that five major American chicken producers consistently feed their flocks low levels of antibiotics—a formula for creating antibiotic resistance. The evidence is contained on “feed tickets” from Tyson’s Foods, Pilgrims’ Pride, George’s, Koch Foods and Perdue Farms, and it’s information federal regulators did not know.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar.

Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
