A priceless quote from a piece about the absurd spectacle of hiring a journalist just because she is a former president's daughter:

Chelsea [Clinton] just renewed her original three-month contract, but there isn’t much to show for it. "Almost nothing," is how one well-placed industry observer describes her tenure at NBC. The industry observer, who has had dealings with Team Chelsea, continues: "Certainly she’s not operating as a reporter. You need a regular presence to become established and break through. Yes, she has world wide name recognition at a young age, but you still have to do the work and show up on screen."
