Clearly, NBC Nightly News is running the U.S. Senate campaign of Caroline Kennedy. In a jaw-dropping move, her run for the office was the network’s lead story Monday evening. The American auto industry is on the verge of bankruptcy, President-elect Obama makes key cabinet appointments, Illinois is impeaching its governor and some fat cat bilks more than $50 billion from the rich and not so famous, and NBC chooses to launch Kennedy’s campaign? Then, to cap off its pathetic cheerleading, the network ended its broadcast with a fluff piece on what would JFK think of his daughter running for the Senate.
