Because this is just what the gravely endangered journalistic profession needs, NBC has elected to pluck former first daughter Chelsea Clinton from her hardscrabble life and groom her to become a special correspondent for “NBC Nightly News.”
Thus enabled by the giant corporate network, she’ll report on hopeful stories of people helping others for a special segment called “Making a Difference.” And in case you didn’t know, Clinton’s not the only one of her kind to make this move to the MSM. —KA
The New York Times:
Mr. Capus said Ms. Clinton had said to him, “That’s the kind of thing, if this were to happen, that I would really like to do.” He added, “It’s not about Chelsea Clinton saying, ‘Here I am; I want to be a TV star.’ ”
Ms. Clinton, who was not available for comment, said in a statement: “I hope telling stories through ‘Making a Difference’ — as in my academic work and nonprofit work — will help me to live my grandmother’s adage of ‘Life is not about what happens to you, but about what you do with what happens to you.’ ”
[...] Ms. Clinton will become the second daughter of a president hired by NBC News, and the third daughter of a recent presidential candidate. Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of President George W. Bush, works as a correspondent for NBC’s “Today” show, and Meghan McCain, daughter of John McCain, is a contributor to MSNBC.
