Chelsea Clinton Already Done at NBC News?


Chelsea Clinton’s much-trumpeted deal with NBC seems to be nearly done. Her contract is for only 90 days, and while she’ll provide the network with two more stories, sources say it is not certain she’ll immediately sign again.

Some sources believe Chelsea was “set up for a fall” after NBC trumpeted her deal to become a full-time special correspondent for the network in the New York Times in November.
NBC News president Steve Capus said Chelsea would work on its “Making a Difference” series on “Rock Center” and “Nightly News.” Capus told the Times, “We both want to see how this goes . . . But I hope it’s the beginning of a nice, long-term relationship.” He didn’t mention at the time it was for 90 days.
So there was huge anticipation for her Dec. 12 debut. Time wrote, “While it was never going to have the magnitude of the moon landing, the amount of hype leading up to Chelsea Clinton’s debut . . . was akin to one small step for Chelsea, one giant leap for network television.” The Washington Post’s Hank Stuever wrote after it aired, “Either we’re spoiled by TV’s unlimited population of giant personalities or this woman is one of the most boring people of her era.”
