(CNN) – Burger King's decision to merge with doughnut chain Tim Hortons and move its base to Canada has everyone from customers to congressmen more fired up than a flame-broiled patty.
That's because the deal would let the fast food giant pay taxes at a lower rate. But the chain insists that's not feeding the move.
(CNN) – Before the double-digit annihilation last night, many had assumed House Majority Leader Eric Cantor would one day take over as House Speaker.
Cantor challenger, Dave Brat, 'shocked' as results rolled in

CNN's Joe Johns reports from Kuala Lumpur.
(CNN) – It has been a grueling 29 days for those with loved ones aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, and not just because so little progress has been made in the search for the plane.

Many are asking whether it has something to do with incompetence on the part of government officials, or if they have something to hide.
CNN's Joe Johns spoke with some family members in Kuala Lumpur.
