(Newser) – Ronan Farrow, definite son of Mia Farrow and alleged son of Woody Allen, has already gained a degree of fame thanks to his mom's admission that he just might actually be Frank Sinatra's love child. But soon the 25-year-old could be a household name: Page Six reports that he's about to close a deal with MSNBC. While he won't have his own show right away, the network plans to have him "work across the whole lineup" and "build his TV news credentials," a source says. The ultimate plan? He'll be the "face of the network," as Anderson Cooper is for CNN.

I was very leery about this guys "credentials." But apparently he was a child prodigy, went to collage at age 11 and law school at 16 (if I remember right). Regardless of his parents, he's obviously a smart dude and could open some doors for himself tho probably more with his heritage.

So...he'll be "groomed " for a spot on a future MSNBC show? Because he has the skills, talent, will have something to say that people might be interested in hearing? Or because of who his father might be?

Sure, attract a young audience with Liberal dribble in hopes that when they get older they will won’t come to their senses and be conservatives. Sadly, all TV news is becoming more reality show and opinion then news. Yes, even Fox - and no I don't watch Fox news. I stopped watching ALL news shows after the Muslin in Chief was elected for a 2nd term.
