• Kensington Palace said Britain's Prince Harry will be partnering with Oprah Winfrey to create a documentary series on mental health for Apple's new streaming service. The documentary builds on Harry's work on mental health issues, which included work with brother Prince William and his wife, Kate, in their Heads Together campaign. Harry said the series will share "global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places" and will provide an "opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better." Earlier this year, Apple enlisted Winfrey, along with Jennifer Aniston and Steven Spielberg, to try to overcome the streaming-service business dominated by Netflix and Amazon. The service, dubbed Apple TV Plus, will feature Apple's original shows and movies.
• The Dalai Lama has been hospitalized in the Indian capital, New Delhi, with a chest infection and is feeling better, his spokesman said Wednesday. The 83-year-old Tibetan spiritual leader is under medication and is likely to spend a day or two in the hospital, spokesman Tenzin Taklha said. The Dalai Lama flew from Dharmsala for consultations with doctors and was hospitalized Tuesday. The north Indian hill town has been his headquarters since he fled Tibet in 1959 after a failed uprising against Chinese rule. Taklha said the Dalai Lama is feeling much better now but has already cut down on travel in the past year as he has to take care of his health. He usually spends several months a year traveling the world to teach Buddhism and highlight the Tibetans' struggle for greater freedom in China. "Long-distance traveling is tiresome. Generally, he is in very good health. But he is taking precautions," the spokesman said.
• Another Fox News Channel personality is questioning the loyalty of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade said on a segment Wednesday about the freshman Democrat that "you have to wonder if she's an American first." The morning show was doing a segment about a speech Omar gave recently about the treatment many Muslim-Americans faced after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. She said a Muslim-rights organization started when people were losing civil liberties soon after because "some people did something." In response to Kilmeade's remark, Omar tweeted that it was a "dangerous incitement." "My love and commitment to our country and that of my colleagues should never be questioned," Omar said via Twitter on Wednesday. "We are ALL Americans." There was no immediate comment from Fox News, where host Jeanine Pirro was suspended for two weeks last month after comments she made about Omar.
