I have to say I haven't been able to work up any righteous indignation over The Today Show hiring former First Daughter Jenna Bush (now Hager) as a correspondent. This is, after all, the same (alleged) news program that gave us J. Fred Muggs and we all know how broadcast journalism's standards have degraded since the '50s.
But what I can't figure out is what the hell The Today Show's producers were thinking. By the end of his term, George W. Bush was one of the least popular presidents in recorded history. While Jenna had nothing to do with formulating and implementing his disastrous policies (I hope), why would you want to have a daily reminder of a remarkably unpopular president right there in the middle of your morning news program? Strange. Maybe hardcore Republicans watch more TV than the rest of us?
