the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart. i know what can happen as the result of hate, and donald trump should never be our president.

have. >> yes. >> but that you're responsible. >> can you dispute accurate, accurate is the key here, information on your credit report and have it removed? >> you can dispute anything. the question is once you dispute it, what is the result? they will investigate. if they do an investigation and find out this is accurate, maybe it is not favor for you, but it is accurate information, it will stay. don't believe any of the scams out there that you can pay someone money and they can let's say somebody was late on a house payment or a couple. if you truly were late, you're not going to be able to remove that information. it is going to be there for seven to 10 years. >> it also depends, who your payment is late to. they may not have reported it jet so if you're just a little bit late, call up the lender, let them know you're making the payment. it might not even show up on
for inaccuracies. >> exactly. >> you want to look at the credit report, not just rely on the bank maybe that you have a credit card or a bank account. you want to look at your credit report because that's where you're going to see anything tied to your name which could also mean you discover identity theft. >> so that is why it is key to keep an eye on it. >> absolutely. >> thank you, john. good information. >> josh? >> thank you. when it comes to your make- up, should you splurge or can you save and still get a glam look. many of expensive. women spend around $15,000 in their lifetime just on make-up alone. but is it worth isn't it? that is the question and today jeff rossen has the beauty brand face-off. >> reporter: designer bowlity brands can cost you big. some say they go on easier and last longer, but does all of that money really buy you a better look or can make-up from the drugstore give you that glamorous look for less?

is on the way in the form of a cold front. it is going to feel great dropping below the average of 84. for the rest of this evening it stays fairly comfortable. we'll keep a small 10% chance of rain around. temperatures generally in the low 80s. as we head tomorrow, temperature also be close to 70, topping out into the upper 80s. we'll bring in that small 10% chance of a passing shower. outside currentry from sun city center, 87 degrees this location. beautiful view. just a few fair weather clouds around. also i want to take a live look outside from our towercam from news channel 8 looking out over downtown tampa and the hillsboro river a fantastic tuesday. beautiful blue skies around a few folks out enjoying the nice weather. so for the rest of this evening at northeastly flow we have been seeing, that is going to continue for us a small stray shower is possible, but generally we're looking at

spaghetti models, all of these keeping this offshore. that is actually thanks to the cold front we're watching. it moves in at the perfect time. so good news out in the tropics there, and generally the only bad news is red tide. still an issue for us. low to medium concentration is being found in parts of the manatee and sarasota county coast. so keep that in mind if you are planning to head out to the beaches. for us, the rain chance, well, they're staying very small through the end of this weekend and as the on the weekend, we just have a 0% chance of rain. the temperatures waking up sunday morning near 60. that means the our northern spots are going to be in the 50s, guys that is the difference. >> that is the change. guess what? m&ms are soon going to have a new flavor. caramel. they will be filled with soft caramel. this will be in addition to the
