Puerto Rican flag on a beer can?

Bill Ritter's daily take on the news.

Talk about a brouhaha. Many members of the Puerto Rican community, furious tonight over the slapping of a Puerto Rican flag on commemorative cans of Coors Light beer, the nation's third-best seller.

Coors is a sponsor of the Puerto Rican Day Parade next month, and they thought it was a sign of solidarity. Some Puerto Rican activists say it's insulting. (A quick Google search shows Budweiser has put the U.S. flag on its cans. Just sayin'.)

So what now? Stay tuned. By the way, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism says that Puerto Ricans consume more alcohol than any other Hispanic group.

We'll have any new developments, tonight at 11.

Also at 11, so what happened that a house in Howard Beach, Queens just blew up today, sending one woman to the hospital?

The pictures are terrifying as part of the house collapsed after catching fire.

And what's up with Larry King? The venerable talk show host for decades a go-to interviewer now working with the Kremlin-funded "RT" (which used to be called "Russia Today") and a new show, "Politics with Larry King." It's billed as "a mold-breaking political talk show" with King "speaking to both leading establishment figures, and those who are not afraid to go against the grain."


We'll also have any breaking news of the night, plus Meteorologist Lee Goldberg's hotter AccuWeather forecast, and Rob Powers with the night's sports. I hope you can join Sade Baderinwa and me, tonight at 11.
