Cody Gifford, Another NBC Connected Kid, Gets Cushy Summer Job

At least NBC is consistent in their love of nepotism.

First, Luke Russert is put on the NBC payroll for seemingly doing nothing. Then Jenna Bush (OK not nepotism, but close enough for blog-work) is hired to report some fluffy stuff. And of course, there is the overwhelming success of Ayla Brown, daughter of former Senator Scott Brown who went to work for CBS.

Next up: The Today Show has hired (OK interned) Cody Gifford, the spawn of Kathie Lee Gifford and the defunct Frank Gifford to do movie reviews for his Mom’s 4th hour of the Today Show.

As with all spoiled snarky Gen Yers or Millenials he doesn’t think Boomers have enough marbles left to do this important work.

“I think that as you get older, you know, you kinda — no one’s fault — but you get a little out of touch with contemporary issues, films, and whatnot. Maybe not out of touch, you can be knowledgeable about it, but you’re not really — it’s not your generation anymore. And that’s no fault of anyone’s, but I think I can bring, maybe, a little more awareness and, kind of, a relevancy, that maybe isn’t there with older people.”

(Emphasis mine)

Cody Gifford is majoring in Film Studies! Friggin’ Film Studies? What the hell kind of job do you get in the real world with Film Studies degree? He mentions he is focusing on film history?

Holy Mother of Godfather. Whuck?

I’d like to slap that smirk right off his little face.

And his mama’s too.

    Just another reason to not watch the 4th hour of Today-Kathie Lee is the first reason not to.

  2. as someone who’s “a little bit older” and definitely out of touch with “contemporary issues and WHATNOT” (wtf), I don’t think I would care to see any movie that someone like Cody suggested I see!! Punk ass kid. Gosh, my mom was merely a science teacher….see where THAT got me.

  3. These damned kids have nothing to bring to the table. Stupid millenials and their entitleist attitudes. Their parents even come to interviews with them. Not kidding. I walk them out the door if the parent shows up.

    There are only three things I ever have to say when a good looking kid like that shows up.

    “Is he legal?”

    🙂
