JEFF JARVIS says that Soledad O’Brien rules the newsbabe roost. I won’t argue, since Jeff has famously given this subject a lot of thought.

I went to law school with one of her sisters; she used to come visit sometimes. She was 16 and cute. But all the O’Brien women are stunners, as well as being really smart and nice. Their brothers (it’s a big family) are smart and good-looking too, though I confess I never paid as much attention to them. Hybrid vigor, Maria (the sister) used to say.
