Presidential Offspring are Ripe for the Picking

Proving that being the offspring of a President can be good for business, NBC News has made Chelsea Clinton a full time special correspondent.  The NYT reports that Clinton will start immediately and will file reports for the “Making a Difference” series, seen on Nightly News.  This follows the pattern of NBC hiring Jenna Bush to contribute to the “TODAY Show” and MSNBC recently hiring Meghan McCain as a contributor.  No word on whether NBC has made the decision to hire Amy Carter as Special Contributor to Lockup: Violence Behind Bars. One can only hope.
