   CHICAGO (AP) - U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin has removed a Facebook post that erroneously claimed a GOP leader had told the president, "I can't even stand to look at you."

   Durbin said Monday he's satisfied that that people now know he's not to blame for the mistake.

   The decision resolves a point of tension between the White House and one of President Barack Obama's most loyal defenders. The White House acknowledges the error stemmed from a "miscommunication."

   Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, was not at the meeting where the statement in question would have been made. He says his source was a White House staffer who briefed him.

   The post drew rebukes from Republicans who said no such statement was made.

Washington, DC (AP) - U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin is asking energy drink companies to stop marketing their products to children.

The Democratic senator from Illinois sent a letter Monday to the CEOs of Red Bull, Rockstar and Monster asking for an explanation for the companies' sponsorship of sporting events that target children.

Durbin says the companies have often claimed they do not market their drinks to youngsters. But he says he is aware of multiple situations that contradict their claims.

Durbin cites several examples in his letter, including a high school football tournament and a motorcycle race for children as young as thirteen endorsed by Red Bull.

Durbin says his letter stems out of growing concerns during the past year about the potential health risks posed by energy drinks.
