There's an agreement on a bipartisan infrastructure deal. Ohio Republican Senator Rob Portman said they have worked out what he called the "major issues." Portman added the bill is paid for.       House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is being pressed about calling Republican leader Kevin McCarthy a "moron." During a news conference, Pelosi did not revisit the "moron" remark, but said McCarthy's comments about the renewed House mask mandate were "not wise." This came after Capitol physician Brian Monahan put the mandate in place Tuesday to fight back against the Delta variant.       Drugmaker Pfizer is recommending a third dose of its coronavirus vaccine. They say it can "strongly" boost protection against the Delta coronavirus variant. New data from the company suggests a third dose can give five-times the protection against the variant than just two shots.       State attorneys general want to revive their antitrust lawsuit against Facebook. A judge had dismissed the suit saying the actions took place more than five years ago, but now they're working to appeal its dismissal. New York's attorney general said Facebook must be held accountable while accusing the social media giant of "stifling competition, reducing innovation, and cutting privacy protections."       McDonald's sales are spiking thanks to the BTS meal and its new chicken sandwich. Named after the popular K-pop band, global sales at the fast food chain surged past Wall Street targets as consumers in nearly 50 countries gobbled up the BTS chicken nugget meal. McDonald's same-store sales jumped over 40-percent in the second quarter.       Despite recent rumors, Paris Hilton says she's not pregnant. On Tuesday's episode of her podcast This is Paris, she said she's not expecting a child with fiance Carter Reum. However, she did say she can't wait to have children in 2022 after she gets married.
