Brace Yourselves for this Awful News, America: Chelsea Clinton Is Leaving NBC

America is due for some good news, what with the sputtering economy, the border crisis, an abdicating president, Russia going neo-Soviet, the rise of ISIS and the return of retread Jerry Brown to office, but this story will be no solace and, certainly no port in a storm.

Chelsea Clinton, arguably the most brilliant journalists on the planet, is leaving her post at NBC News.

I know, I know. It's hard to take. The Tatler is here for you.

Journalism's leading light broke the terrible news in the modern era's most prestigious news publication, People magazine.

Chelsea Clinton says she's stepping out of her correspondent job as she looks forward to taking on mom duties

After not quite three years as a special correspondent for NBC News – and with just a little while until she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expected to become parents – the former first daughter is now leaving that position, she tells PEOPLE in a statement, "to continue focusing on my work at the Clinton Foundation and as Marc and I look forward to welcoming our first child."

No one will ever forget Chelsea Clinton's massive contribution to journalism.

Her hard-hitting interview with the Geico gecko for Rock Center will never ever be surpassed. It even left a deceased Dan Rather envious.

Dan Rather isn't dead yet? Well, whatever. Maybe he'll fake that too.

Chelsea proved that she has the chops to go toe-to-toe with Putin in that interview. She was a bargain at $600,000 per year to file one or two puff pieces annually. A steal.

She'll be missed. Terribly.
