Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of former President George W. Bush, will be joining the cast of NBC's Today show as a correspondent, contributing roughly two stories per month to the program. She will not, however, be covering politics. [AP]
I don't get the Jenna Bush hate. Sure, she's getting this job because of who her dad is but that's true of a lot of people and she'll fail or succeed on her own merits. I'm sure she's had a lot of opportunities in life, but she's also chosen to be a public school teacher and wrote a book about young women with AIDS. She's not Paris Hilton, Jenna seems to try to use her influence to do good.
