Toadies: People Magazine Hypes 20-Year-Old Son of Caroline Kennedy as
NewsBusters.org ^ | December 8, 2013 | Tim Graham

Posted on 12/08/2013 2:50:09 PM PST by Kaslin

To prove the liberal media never, ever stops promoting the Kennedy “dynasty” ad infinitum, the December 16 edition of people magazine highlights this story in the table of contents: “JFK’s only grandson, Jack Kennedy Schlossberg, steps up to carry the family torch.” He’s only 20 and going to Yale. The headline is "HEIR TO CAMELOT."

Next to his picture on page 92 is the caption “A HUNK LIKE HIS UNCLE: Schlossberg has JFK Jr. infatuation potential – and more. ‘He will be a major figure of his generation,’ predicts Kennedy family biographer Laurence Leamer.” It's hard to tell if this is People or a boy-band fanzine like Tiger Beat.

The article by former AP reporter Sandra Sobieraj Westfall oozed “Jack Schlossberg radiated debonair brightness as he played host at a D.C. dinner for Medal of Freedom honorees on November 20....Schlossberg nailed it with a jaunty ease reminiscent of his uncle John F. Kennedy Jr., who he admires.”

“Jack is very interested in John Jr.s life, and loves being compared to him,” said an anonymous friend of the Kennedy clan. So People magazine obliges like typically obsequious liberals.

Beyond the lustrous hair and heartthrob brown eyes, the two namesakes of the stories Kennedy family share a grace and humor, say those who know Schlossberg At Yale the New York City native performs comedy improv in the exaggerated Boston accent of the rest of his clan and writes boyishly witty blog posts.”

As if this isn’t ridiculously pandering enough, this takes the case. A “college friend” swears “He’s just Jack. He’s proud of his family, but he doesn’t use that in any way.”

People magazine is just preposterous in its truth-denying obedience.

CNN's Candy Crowley puffed up young Jack in an interview at the 2012 Democratic convention alongside his mom, in which he promises he's most interested in the family business:

Wasn’t JFK Jr. the guy who had such a hard time passing the NY bar exam?

And wasn’t he the genius who flew his plane into the drink?

This here was the "heir to Camelot."

May "Camelot" rest in peace.

He looks like your typical Skateboarder Teen dressed in his Dad’s old suit. Her son appears well trained while on camera, he didn’t interrupt his mom. I wish them well, but they are not Royals, neither are the Bushes or the Clintons. Obama does things mainly to benefit himself and no longer pretends to care that much about his party. The Obama influence will likely dissipate greatly when he is finally shoehorned out of the White House (Oh Happy Day!).

Well...uh...., John-John had turned out to be something other than a screaming RFK Jr liberal, and IIRC his death wasn’t regarded by the Kennedy clan as any great political loss. They said he was more Bouvier than Kennedy.

Then there was the immediate cremation w/o autopsy of all who perished in that plane crash, ashes scattered at sea, personally ordered by Teddy the Swimmer.

JFK’s grandson will have a proud legacy to uphold. /s

A Kennedy scion going to Yale?

First of all, he needs a good ghostwriter to write a book for him, so he can follow in his grandpa's footsteps and win a Pulitzer Prize. Maybe Bill Ayers isn't too busy at the moment to help out.

Kennedys, the herpes of the body politic.

The only Kennedy that I don't passionately detest is Rosemary, who was lobotomized. The rest -- and yes that includes JFK and RFK -- were all agents of evil. Oh, and that tax cut that some tout as "proof" of Johnny's "conservatism" doesn't begin make up for the vast body of his pro-commie policies.

If you wonder why JFK and the Kennedys are revered by some, it is because they pulled it off, they “fixed” America.

“However, if there is one man who can take the most credit for the 1965 act, it is John F. Kennedy. Kennedy seems to have inherited the resentment his father Joseph felt as an outsider in Boston’s WASP aristocracy. He voted against the McCarran-Walter Act of 1952, and supported various refugee acts throughout the 1950s. In 1958 he wrote a book, A Nation of Immigrants, which attacked the quota system as illogical and without purpose, and the book served as Kennedy’s blueprint for immigration reform after he became president in 1960. In the summer of 1963, Kennedy sent Congress a proposal calling for the elimination of the national origins quota system. He wanted immigrants admitted on the basis of family reunification and needed skills, without regard to national origin. After his assassination in November, his brother Robert took up the cause of immigration reform, calling it JFK’s legacy. In the forward to a revised edition of A Nation of Immigrants, issued in 1964 to gain support for the new law, he wrote, “I know of no cause which President Kennedy championed more warmly than the improvement of our immigration policies.” Sold as a memorial to JFK, there was very little opposition to what became known as the Immigration Act of 1965.”

Only two parts of the Kennedy family are relatively good. The Shrivers are absolutely incredible and the JFK personal family were pretty good (only one left). Not a divorce in the entire two sections of the Kennedy family. I say that is quite an accomplishment.

The kid didn’t inherit any intellectual brilliance from either side of his family. JFK Jr, barely passed the New York bar after numerous tries and Caroline is no intellectual.

Kennedys: The cannot fly a plane without killing someone or themsselves, they cannot ski without hitting a tree and killing themselves, they cannot drive a car without killing someone, yet they know more about how we should live than we do. And they will take our money and prove it. They are a laughing hyena. They can rape and go free, kill and get away with it for over 15 years, etc, etc,...of course the last 2 was part of the extended Kennedy clan...And adultery is their first law of being a kennedy and made their fortune as a bootlegger and was a Nazi sympathizer and Roosevelt had to recall old joe from his diplomatic post in Great Britain and last but now lease, have their daughter forced into a pre-frontal lobotomy put in a convent for the rest of her life....great family. bull sh1t

That faux VW ad was an in house send up by art staff of one of the premier Madison Avenue ad houses. Who released into the wild, I don’t know, but it was circulating among the ad agencies for awhile before being published. A friend in the ad biz showed me a Velox copy that was floating around.

I believe that ad was from the National Lampoon.
If I remember correctly, (not sure on this) the Kennedys
put great pressure on the publisher to pull the ad, even
though it’s a parody on the VW ad campaign back in the
early seventies about their waterproof body construction.
The copy is very funny too.

This. And, he walks around in public wearing that silly 1960s Kennedyesque little man's haircut. Word of warning to the young man: this ain't your grandfather's Democratic party. Hard core Leftists are in charge now. You are a boy playing a man's game.

At Yale, he is training to become an EMT (Emergency medical technician), and is a contributor to the Yale Daily News and The Yale Herald.

In eighth grade, Schlossberg co-founded ReLight New York which raised more than $100,000 to install compact fluorescent lights in low-income housing developments.

In September 2012, he announced his intention to pursue a career in politics after college graduation.

In mid-July 1999, the family was coming together at their Hyannis Port, Mass., retreat for the wedding of RFK Jr.’s sister Rory Kennedy, the youngest child of assassinated Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.

RFK Jr.’s wife had visited JFK Jr. and Bessette a week earlier and Bessette told her that her husband was “so depressed” because he was fighting with his sister, Caroline, over furniture at the Martha’s Vineyard home that once belonged to their mother and had been left to them when Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis died in 1994. JFK Jr. was in the process of buying out his sister’s share in the Red Gate Farm estate.

Kennedy notes that “John confided to me also about how hurt he was by Caroline’s actions.” (Last spring, Caroline Kennedy, who is about to be sworn in as the US ambassador to Japan, put part of the estate on the market for $45 million.)

Kennedy also mentions JFK Jr.’s struggles with George magazine, which he co-founded, and the uproar caused when he invited Hustler publisher Larry Flynt to join his table at that year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Sen. Ted Kennedy had written nephew John a “disappointed letter” about the decision and “John was hurt by that because his family is so important.”
