Chelsea Clinton to NBC News – UPDATED

It appears Chelsea Clinton is going to NBC:

NBC said it had hired the 31-year-old Clinton to work on projects for “NBC Nightly News” and Brian Williams’ newsmagazine, “Rock Center.” She will report stories for the feel-good “Making a Difference” series.

The only child of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is pursuing a doctorate at Oxford and working for the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative.

So, she’s done with the hedge-fund management stuff and the Barry Diller stuff? That’s probably for the best, given the current tenor of the times.

But it is one of those wonderfully ironic stories: Chelsea Clinton has famously said, “I do not talk to the press”.

And now, she is going to be part of the press, talking to us.

UPDATE: Clinton has been unavailable for comment since the story broke, but t New York Times has more on her new gig.

UPDATE II:
Ed Morrissey generally
has no issue with kids of politicians getting into media but says in this case, it’s “a little like Greta Garbo doing a daytime talk show”
