Skip to comments.NBC Paid Chelsea Clinton $600,000 to Do Nothing, Basically
Posted on 06/14/2014 7:12:17 PM PDT by jimbo123
Former first child (now with child) Chelsea Clinton had a $600,000 annual contract at NBC News, Politico reports, where she served as a "special correspondent" and was deemed to be mostly useless, if not "one of the most boring people of her era." That deal is over now, but Clinton is still being paid by the network (which has also hired Luke Russert, Meghan McCain, and Jenna Bush ... ) on a month-to-month basis, with complicating factors including her pregnancy and the good odds her mother is running for president.
That work included little of note, either journalistically or personally, despite Brian Williams admitting during Clinton's first appearance, "In the months to come, we want to hear about you and your life." (He added, as an afterthought, "We want to hear about the lives of the people you're going to highlight.")
But one time she interviewed the cartoon Geico gecko:

Jenna Bush anyone????? The life of a first daughter.
At least Jenna is hot.
Maybe so, but she is more liberal than Chelsea.
And now they want to promote her mother, The Hillary, who also has never done anything.
Runs in the family. Do nothing and get millions.
It MUST be that white privilege rearing its ugly head again, or maybe it is just Chelsea rearing HER ugly head. Toss a coin. /s
I don’t believe that for a second....actually, I don’t care. :-)
A Bribe for the future ?
It’s how the Left does “payola”.
funneling money through Chelsea for something Hillary did or will do, bet on it.
With that kind of money, couldn’t she at least have loaned some money to her “dead broke” parents?
I really don’t either to be honest....have a good one.
Cut her a break, her parents were flat broke
They just promoted her mother with a $600,000 campaign donation that they get to write off against their corporate taxes.
Her father seems to have fit into a new vocation of being an author...
Chelsea did even better than Michelle Obama, who was only paid $300,000 for doing nothing in her “community outreach” job.
I think I should contact NBC and tell them I’ll do nothing for $100,000, saving them $500,000.
thank God that she got the 600,000 dollars, we now know that the Clintons were broke, even in debt as they left the White House...,.,.at least Chelsea wasn’t on food stamps!!!
Webb Hubble must be so proud.
This was about raising her profile, and paying off the family for something. (Comcast Merger support?)
CBS will be running another “HILARRY CINTON FOR PRESIDENT!!!” show, starring Tea Leoni, called “Madam Secretary”, about a female Secretary of State, starting in September.
This is all so blatant promotion, and they no longer give a damn who knows it, because no one on our side is going to get off their butts to protest it, like the left would.
At least I’ve seen the Bush daughter. She is at least watchable. Never saw Clinton. If Mc Cain was promo’d as coming up next, I said a brief prayer of thanks for the warning and changed the channel.
Thunder thighs and heavy alcohol consumption.
Chelsea did even better than Michelle Obama, who was only paid $300,000 for doing nothing in her community outreach job.
THE intersection of White Privilege and Inflation...
They are an equal opportunity employer — they also hired Jenna Bush to do nothing and in her last assignment she cuddled up to Uncle Bill Clinton.
Have you read it?
It is good and reads good between the lines too.
TWENTY EIGHT more months of 24/7 CLINTON.
First Child? God I am sick of that garbage!
OMG — too funny!
I consider this money laundering.
It appears to me that this also has some similarities to Mrs. Clinton's CATTLEGATE scandal in which she miraculously turned $1,000 into $100K (lying that she used cattle futures info from the WSJ, IIRC), but, one suspects, most likely to curry favor with the party (broker firm?) that (again, IIRC) ate the losses and yielded the profits to Hillary.
If Socks the Cat (R.I.P.) had hung on, maybe Socks would also have gotten a sweet (W.P.A.) gig like this.
Maybe so, but she is more liberal than Chelsea.
Name one issue, then tell me each of their positions and explain why Jenna is more liberal.
Doesn’t this bother people beyond the conservative sphere? Those who have to work hard for a small fraction of that $600K? Those whose kids had to encumber themselves with huge loans to earn degrees, and who now face joblessness and massive debt? Maybe even GE/NBC shareholders?
They need to investigate this as money-laundering, illegal funneling of money to political campaigns and the democrat party.
If you won’t get in front of a camera, we’ll give you several hundred thousand dollars, OK?
That pick of her on Drudge was hideous. Ms. Hubbell should go full sharia from now on.
Dangm U;d be willing to do “nothing” for a lot less than $600,000. I could save them some money!
Jenna is pro murder of babies. That is all I need to know.
Blackmail? Extortion? If someone is doing nothing, then someone has something on the someone, who is paying the something for nothing.
One of my best pupils!
Defend your claim.
As Glenn Reynolds said, for a correspondent it’s gross overpayment, but for a bribe for future presidential influence, it’s cheap.
Have not read Hubbell’s book...
But, note that Amazon reviews are all VERY positive.
