NBC Paid Chelsea Clinton $600,000 to Do Nothing, Basically
New York Magazine ^ | 6/13/14 | Joe Coscarelli

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.

-snip-

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:

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

With that kind of money, couldn’t she at least have loaned some money to her “dead broke” parents?

They just promoted her mother with a $600,000 campaign donation that they get to write off against their corporate taxes.

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.

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.

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.

NBC Paid Chelsea Clinton $600,000 to Do Nothing...

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.

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.

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.
