Is Jennifer Aniston right about body shaming?
On Tuesday morning, the Huffington Post published a piece by Jennifer Aniston entitled "For the Record." In it, the actress blasts the media for, she says, its constant objectification, over many years, of her personal life. Her commentary was fueled at least in part by recent tabloid speculation that she's pregnant, at long last. Aniston is married to the actor Justin Theroux. It's not the first time the celebrity media has announced her pregnancy, nor is she the only actress to be the focus of these sorts of rumors.

How Gingrich broke Congress
The word is that Donald Trump is considering Newt Gingrich for vice president. Trump needs an insider, someone with real experience. Former Speaker Gingrich, leader of the Republican resurgence in the House in the early 1990s, certainly has that experience. Indeed, there is perhaps no one else on the right with the knowledge that Gingrich has -- and no one else who would be a better target for the increasingly reform-focused Democratic Party.
