Former Trump Staffer Attacks Cleveland Newspaper
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Jason Miller, a former senior communications adviser for President Donald Trump, attacked a major Cleveland newspaper on Saturday for failing to feature Trump’s inauguration on its front page. Worst front page in the country this AM goes to @theplaindealer. Didn’t even cover the @TrumpInaugural. — Jason Miller (@JasonMillerinDC) January 21, 2017 Miller drew his conclusion from a Plain Dealer front page featured on the Newseum website, which posts the front pages of newspapers across the country every day. The front page on the Newseum site featured a Washington Post story about Trump’s executive order weakening the Affordable Care Act, and a New York Times piece about President Barack Obama’s farewell event with his political appointees. But Henry Gomez, the chief political correspondent for, a digital news site that provides content for the paper, said on Twitter that Saturday’s edition actually featured a special wra ...

Male Politicians Open Up About Housework, Kids And Work-Life Balance
Huffington Post - about 1 year
WASHINGTON -- When Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) considered whether to run for House speaker, one of his main considerations was whether he would still be able to carve out time to spend with his wife and three children. "I cannot, and will not, give up my family time," Ryan said in October.  His remarks were notable, in part, because they came from a man. Traditionally, female politicians are the ones who have had to answer extensive questions about how they can handle the demands of elected office while also being a wife and mother.  While running for governor of North Dakota in 2000, Democrat Heidi Heitkamp -- who is now a U.S. senator -- was often asked how old her kids were. She would respond that they were the same age as her male opponent's children. In the 2008 election, Republican Sarah Palin faced constant questions and skepticism from some voters that she would be able to be vice president while taking care of an infant with Down syndrome. Ryan, meanwhile, faced very f ...

Do We Need to Hear From the Candidate's Spouse?
NYTimes - over 4 years
Remember when the candidate's spouse simply smiled and waved at political conventions? You probably don't if you're under 50. For the past 20 years, the spouse's speech, like Michelle Obama's on Tuesday night and Ann Romney's last week, has been an anticipated feature of most conventions. Should that be so? What role should spouses of the nominees play at presidential conventions? Is it appropriate (or useful) for them to give speeches endorsing the candidate? Responses: It Depends on the Candidate and the Partnership Rebecca Traister, author, "Big Girls Don't Cry" Not a Prop, or a P.R. Problem Connie Schultz, author, "...

Family, politics take stage at Labor Day celebration
Chronicle Online - over 4 years
LORAIN — Because Chuck Schultz carried a 12-pound wrench to work, his daughter was able to carry a laptop to her job. Connie Schultz, whose column runs in The Chronicle-Telegram, told the story of her father, a Cleveland Electric Illuminating Co. union factory worker, and her mother, Janey, a nonunion nurse and hospice worker, at Sunday’s 18th annual Lorain County Labor Day Festival. Schultz, the wife of U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Avon, told her late parents’ stories to illustrate the value of worker rights and unions, which she said are under attack by Republicans. Schultz said her father’s union health care plan helped her survive a serious case of asthma as a teenager, and her parents’ salaries, along with federal taxpayer loans, allowed her to be the first in her family to graduate from college. “My dad thought he was a nobody. My mother thought she was a nobody, but they were going to raise four somebodies,” Schultz told about 200 festival-goers at Black River Landing. “My p ...

Every Woman is a Success
Beachwood Patch - almost 5 years
More than 230 women came out last Saturday to learn more about their health and to have a little fun with MetroHealth. The Every Woman event at the Marriott East kicked off with free health screenings and a talk by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Connie Schultz. Women also participated in health talks on topics such as menopause and heart health. The morning was capped off with a gourmet lunch and a jewelry showcase. The goal of the event was to promote good health for women and to open their eyes about all MetroHealth has to offer - and expectations were exceeded. "I always thought of MetroHealth as a West-side hospital for trauma. After listening to the three spine medicine doctors, I'm looking at Metro differently - as someplace I would definitely consider," remarked one attendee.
