Harmless selfie or shameless promotion?

The Boston Red Sox made their trip to the White House on Tuesday, and designated hitter David Ortiz wanted to make sure that he had a way to remember the visit. He took a "selfie" of himself with the President that has been retweeted over 40,000 times!

Later comes word of his promotional deal with Samsung, which had people begging the question- was the spontaneous selfie just another advertising plug? FULL STORY

Samsung released this statement about the picture:

“We were thrilled to see the special, historic moment David Ortiz captured with his Galaxy Note 3 during his White House visit. It was an honor to help him capture such an incredible and genuine moment of joy and excitement. Similar to the selfie Ellen was able to capture during the Oscars, this was an opportunity for David to share the incredible moment with his fans.”

So, we want to hear from you. Do you feel duped by Big Papi's selfie with President Obama?

Web exclusive: Should college athletes be paid?

Top college basketball teams from across the nation are facing off over the next three weeks during March Madness. The highly-anticipated sporting event is watched by millions and generates over a billion dollars, but none of that goes to the players.

Meanwhile, an attorney representing four college athletes filed a class-action lawsuit against the NCAA on Monday arguing that universities should have the option of paying players. "The reality is that it is already pro sports for everybody but the athletes," Attorney Jeffrey Kessler said in the landmark anti trust suit.

Is it time for student athletes to get paid?

In the Crossfire: Cold sparks climate skeptics

The bitter cold that a "polar vortex" is pushing into much of the United States is not just another winter storm. It's the coldest in 20 years in many areas, and breaking some records. Full story here.

How far below zero does it have to get to cool off the global warming debate?

Tonight Van Jones and Newt Gingrich host Crossfire with guests Navin Nayak, who wants climate change legislation and David Kreutzer, who's against it.

Besides the freezing cold weather, another topic on many Americans' minds is the college football BCS National Championship game where Auburn squares off against Florida State. Who do you think will win?
