Zurawik: Chelsea Clinton NBC’s ‘Pretend Journalist’

Baltimore Sun TV critic David Zurawik takes aim at Chelsea Clinton in his latest Daily Download column, calling her a “pretend correspondent” at NBC News:

I continue to be fascinated by a network news division putting someone as outrageously unqualified as Clinton on a prime-time newsmagazine. 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. In fact, I think she is worse than when she started this job for which NBC News President Steve Capus said “it’s as if she had been preparing her whole life.”
