7. NBC did the right thing here.

Chelsea Clinton is a very fine young woman from my perspective, and her views on marriage for all are admirable.

But, and it is a big But, she is an on air reporter for NBC. As a journalist she is not supposed to be taking sides in a political debate.

I doubt that any NBC journalist would get a pass for supporting any particular politician or cause in a paid political advertisement.

Not even the members of the MSNBC lineup get to appear on TV ads for their favorite candidates.

Chelsea's situation is exactly the same as Rachel's or Ed's or Chris's.

I am surprised that anyone, including Chelsea herself, thought that NBC would allow this of one of its journalists.
