Chelsea Clinton's Coming to a TV Near You
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.
