TV Critic: Chelsea Clinton Remains
´Outrageously Unqualified´
for Her NBC News Gig

NewsBusters, by Tim Graham

David Zurawik, a TV writer for The Baltimore Sun, slammed "pretend journalist" Chelsea Clinton on The Daily Download for her work on NBC. "I continue to be fascinated by a network news division putting someone as outrageously unqualified as Clinton on a prime-time newsmagazine," he wrote. "I watched her again last week in a softer-than-soft piece on a weight loss program started by Pastor Rick Warren at his Saddleback Church, and I can say with absolute certainty that she has not improved one lick in the last year." He proclaimed, "In fact, I think she is

Comments:
Zurawik is sure no conservative. I didn´t even know Chelsea Clinton was still acting as a "journalist." Of course I won´t watch NBC so I wasn´t enlightened by that fact. She´s just getting primed for her political career. Oh groan.

Poor Web Hubbell is turning in his grave. I believe Chelsea was his only daughter.

You would think that anyone as well educated as Chelsea is would want to make a name for herself on her own instead of taking the favor of a stupid TV job from political soul mates of her parents. Doesn´t she have any pride? For God´s sake Chelsea, go to law school, get A´s, get on law review and then make a name for yourself on your own hook. Stop milking the system. You´re in your 30´s now. Grow up!

People her age with sharper abilities and more degrees have to move in with their parents because they can´t find jobs. It´s amazing what having the right name and set of relatives can get a person. The rather mediocre Kennedy kids have known this all their lives.

Chelsea isn´t the only "pretend journalist" at NBC. At least she is new at the game.

Chelsea is proof why people go into politics. She has no job skills and nothing to offer an employer. Being how she will be eventually labeled the 2nd smartest woman - next to her mother - in the world, this qualifies her to be senator of whatever state she chooses.

As for NBC, if they are looking for a woman with real brains to host a magazine show, they might try asking Liz Cheney - but then Liz has too much brainpower to get mixed up with that outfit.

On the contrary, imo journalism really doesn´t need more than a high school diploma. She´s overqualified. It´s only due to certification inflation that journalism has been stretched as a subject into grad school.

Her real job is to bring in ratings to sell ad space - that´s all. She´s either performing in that capacity or she´s not.

Maybe but Chelsea is the best "pretend journalist" NBC has. NBC has no real journalists so she fits right in.

The left really believes in political pedigree,no matter whether the person can stand on her own two feet or not.I seriously doubt her bogus marriage is working out. I seem to remember her husband vacationing by himself not long after they got married. She´s probably frigid as hell in bed.

Obama´s girls going through Sidwell will probably turn out to be over educated zombies themselves cashing in on the folk´s name ID.I actually hope better for these two girls like turning conservative.

If you want to be an attorney, doctor, electrician, general contractor, plumber, asbestos remover, etc, you have to be tested and certified. It indicates that you are a professional. If you want to be a professional journalist, all you need a pencil or a tape recorder...

#1, webster hubbell is still alive. Look at the wiki entry on him. I had forgotten some of that stuff. The man is a thief. But he kept quiet and protected bill and hillary, just as he said he would.

As far as commenting on Chelsea Clinton´s talent, she has put herself out there on NBC, and while I haven´t watched NBC since the 1990s, I understand that she stinks at her commentary job.
Should she be immune from criticism because she is hillary´s daughter?

The tried-and-true path to a career in journalism, in print or broadcast, is to start in the smaller markets and work your way up to the big time. Apparently Miss Clinton has no time for that. I´m not sure experience in the smaller markets would help in her case.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
