Fox News retracts Seth Rich conspiracy story as Hannity vows to press on
A controversial Fox News report about the death of a Democratic National Committee employee last summer ? a story that had fueled a conspiracy theory that rocketed across right-wing media, but reportedly embarrassed some of the network?s staffers ? was retracted by the network Tuesday afternoon. The report attempted to tie the death of data analyst Seth Rich ? who was shot in what Washington police believe was a botched robbery attempt ? to the leak of DNC emails to WikiLeaks, which began publishing them two weeks later. The implication, spelled out most directly by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, was that Rich had provided the emails and was assassinated in retaliation or as part of a coverup.

Massive slide buries stretch of iconic California highway
A massive rockslide has buried a stretch of California's iconic seaside Highway 1 which had already been hit by a number of road closures caused by severe winter storms, state transportation officials said Tuesday. The slide on one of America's most picturesque highways took place on Saturday morning in a remote and largely uninhabited area known as Mud Creek. The road in that section of the highway had already been shut down before a million tons of earth came tumbling down from a hillside, burying a 1,500-foot (nearly half a kilometer) section of the highway, said Jim Shivers, a spokesman for the state's transportation agency.
