Chelsea Clinton planning to stay on at NBC; insiders, critics wonder why

Being the daughter of a former President and the current Secretary of State certainly has its perks.
Despite poor marks for her reportorial performance it looks like Chelsea Clinton is preparing to renew her contract with NBC News.
According to insiders familiar with negotiations, the Stamford and Columbia graduate is poised to extend her contract with the network to work on special segments for the shows Rock Center and Nightly News, a move that has media watchers confused.
She has done a bunch of warm and fuzzy stories that havent gotten any kind of critical appreciation but she does have that Clinton name, US Weekly senior television editor April Bernard told Fox411. Critics say she doesnt dig deeply enough as a reporter. She is amateurish and green. She also isnt charismatic on camera which is surprising because her dad is so appealing. It is just hard to watch her and know she is there because of who she is.
If its hard for the audience, it is even harder on some NBC veterans.

Webb Hubbell, appealing? I think not.
“It’s hard to watch her...”
No kiddin news department.
Like mother, like daughter. Boring, uncharismatic and overrated.
Does anybody proofread anymore?
She didn’t graduate from “Stamford”. Stamford is a city in Connecticut. She graduated from “Stanford”.
“Chelsea Clinton planning to stay on at NBC; insiders, critics wonder why” She did the SAME thing to the NBC/GE Suits that Monica did to her “daddy”. Webb Hubbell would be SO proud!
Hard to watch doesn't even begin to describe it!
Go Cal !!
Cognitive disassociation on her abilities/appeal?
Why? Because she's being groomed for an inevitable Senate run, like her mother was.
Standards in TV journOlista’s? ROFL. She’s a Democrat shill like the rest of ‘em.
Didn’t anyone have the sense to give her a DESK JOB
Promote her to “VP of investigative research and idea development for community outreach”
Like Michelle Obama’s old job at the hospital (that has remaned vacant since she left)
Stamford and sons?
“She didnt graduate from Stamford.”
Stamford is where they tape the “Maury” show, where that burning question “Who da baby daddy?” finally gets answered via paternity testing.
I would LOVE to see Chelsea, Bill, and Webb’s DNA sample on that show.
(From the eyes down, pure Webb Hubbell...)
Does anyone actually watch NBC?
I wonder how her husband’s hedgefund launch is going. Dad and Mom will no doubt “encourage” folks to invest.
GE, GE and GE.
Follow the money.
I tried watching Chelsea’s debut online. For a moment it really wasn’t too bad thanks to a bit of colorful graphics. Alas, the video stopped loading and the episode was just too boring to tolerate so I left the site.
