Chelsea Clinton to NBC News – UPDATED

Chelsea Clinton to NBC News – UPDATED November 14, 2011

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.

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”
