Jenna Bush Hagar reporter on the Today show?

I hope this is a guest appearance because she is absolutely awful. She is interviewing Michelle Obama. It looks awkward.

1. She has been on there for a while now

Each interview and report more awkward and terrible than the last. I have no idea why she is allowed to stick around.

2. She's been a "special correspondent" for at least a couple of years now. Interviewed Shrub. Riveting

4. LOL

I usually turn it off when I know she's coming on, but somehow I walked into the living room while she was doing the interview and now I know why I turn it off. She is absolutely terrible! I know so many wonderful young people with journalism degrees that would be so much better than she is, but of course we all know how she got the job.

Chelsea Clinton runs rings around her.

6. So Chelsea is good?

Jenna looks like she is trying real hard to be a journalist. It shows. (just like bloggers)

I bet people who studied to be a journalist do not appreciate what she is doing. (hum...just like bloggers)

9. I've only watched one interview that Chelsea did......

and I thought she was very good. But she grew up with two parents who are extremely articulate, self-confident and educated. Look what Jenna grew up with. (Hint: Is our children learning?)

7. She can have lunch with Lil Russert.

broadcast TV is a closed shop, at a certain elevation in the organization.

10. Jenna is another reason to not watch the Today Show

Look I have to watch it - but everytime she is on I have to turn away as fast as possible!!

She always sounds like she has a frog in her throat. Then there is the sing-song approach she has to every interview. I can almost imagine the interview with Mrs. Obama.
