Having a former President for a father and the current Secretary of State for a mother has gotten Chelsea Clinton far in life.
According to Fox News, Clinton plans to extend her contract with NBC News to work on special segments for the shows Rock Center and Nightly News, despite negative feedback from viewers and fellow journalists.
Clinton joined NBC as a special correspondent in December and has reported on three stories in more than 90 days.
She has done a bunch of warm and fuzzy stories that haven't 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 doesn't dig deeply enough as a reporter. She is amateurish and green. She also isn't 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.
Her Dec. 12 premiere profiled Annette Dove, the leader of an afterschool program for at-risk children in Pine Bluff, Ark. Later, she reported on a World War II veteran who raised money to provide service dogs to injured returning soldiers. Her last profile was on a charter school in Central Falls, R.I.
It's no surprise whatsoever that Chelsea Clinton didn't electrify broadcast journalism with her debut Monday night on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams, because she has no experience in broadcast journalism, Washington Post reviewer Hank Stuever wrote. Rather, what was surprising to see on Monday night's show is how someone can be on TV in such a prominent way and, in her big moment, display so very little charisma - none at all. Either we're spoiled by TV's unlimited population of giant personalities or this woman is one of the most boring people of her era.
