(CNN) – There are certain things employees just don't want their bosses to know, much less share with all of their co-workers.
AOL CEO Tim Armstrong held a town hall meeting last week about why the company was cutting retirement benefits, one of his explanations caused a nationwide uproar.
"We had two AOL-ers that had distressed babies that were born that we paid a million dollars each to make sure those babies were okay in general," Armstrong said.
The comment set off a firestorm of controversy, with the mother of one of the babies publicly blasting Armstrong for his comments. He has since apologized and reversed the decision to cut pension plans.
But how did the company head learn about the health conditions of his employee's babies to begin with?
(CNN) - Hillary Clinton traveled nearly a million miles as secretary of state. But now, with 2016 speculation at a fever pitch, a lot of Republicans are suddenly talking about Clinton's political baggage, specifically, her husband's involvement with Monica Lewinksy, a White House intern, in the late 1990s.
Republican Senator Rand Paul, a man many believe will be running for president in 2016, has publicly criticized former President Bill Clinton for being a "sexual predator," and says Democrats who took money from him, ought to give it back.

Washington (CNN) – The climax of French President Francois Hollande's three-day state visit comes Tuesday night, with a black-tie state dinner at the White House. The Obamas have only held six state dinners ever.
The menu tonight is designed with that certain flair, that certain je ne sais quois that the French love: caviar, garden salad, dry-aged rib-eye, and a choice of dessert.
Actor and current Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper is on the state dinner guest list. Turns out, he speaks French.
But you know who isn't coming? The U.S. Ambassador to France. You know why? Because we don't have one.
Chicago (CNN) – His administration is facing multiple investigations, but Chris Christie says he's moving forward.
