A really shrewd business move. Can’t let a major talent like this escape to a competing network.
Chelsea Clinton is close to signing another deal with NBC, despite criticism of her reporting.
Clinton is nearing the end of a 90-day contract as an NBC News special correspondent, where she contributes to the “Making a Difference” segments that air during “Rock Center With Brian Williams.”
While her reports have been tepidly received by critics, sparking strong rumors and reports she would not sign again, sources tell us NBC plans to keep her involved with the network.
It is believed that the deal will keep Chelsea providing similar reports for “Rock Center.” A representative for Clinton didn’t get back to us, and NBC declined to comment.
Proving once again it’s not what you can do but who you were born to.
The 1% really have it great.
Reviews of her work have been less than kind.
The television critic for the Baltimore Sun ranted that NBC News should know better than to continue this ‘silly crap’ of Miss Clinton’s ‘simplistic feel-good, this-is-a-place-of-“hope” report’ in a particularly scathing review.He questioned the qualification of Miss Clinton to report and comment on the reading levels of the children she interviewed, and the apparent lack of research that went into the feature piece.
