    Was this job posted on the Jobs board? I didn't see it. Maybe I wouldn't have been a good fit, but it seems like the game is rigged when all the young 'effing studs get jobs that are never even advertised.

    Howard Kurtz said it best earlier today on CNN when he said that, in TV news, it's more important to be famous than to have talent for this thing we used to call journalism.

    Glenn Greenwald has this covered.


    Amazingly enough, it's all NBC: the Nepotism Broadcasting Company.

    They also used to have a member of the Kennedy family, though Maria Shriver had far more journalism chops than Jenna or Chelsea.

    Just like Joe Buck, Kenny Albert, Thom Breneman and the two most recent generations of Carays.

    I hope she and Jenna Bush and Peter Doocy and Luke Russert all sit around Cafe Milano and share the horror stories of the time spent paying their dues for such plum jobs.
