Okay folks, here's the update on today's news trivia question for Bonus Bucks. Without going into details, there's a problem with the answer selection response. So here's the solution. Those of you who knew the correct answer--and there is one--but got a response of incorrect, you will receive credit for the answer. You will get your Bonus Bucks.

Now, for those contestants who selected an answer and got a response of correct--you will ALSO receive credit for the Bonus Bucks. Obviously, our answer response is giving out the wrong information about which answer is correct and which are incorrect. However, as I said, the right answer is listed in your selections.
