The impertinent New York Post has already put Chelsea Clinton on the unemployment line.
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.
Time magazine wasn’t impressed with Chelsea’s debut
“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.”
“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.” (emphasis mine)
But NBC is spinning the news this way.
“100 percent false. You will see more pieces from Chelsea. She has been warmly welcomed into this news division, and we can’t be more pleased with her work. We hope she will be with us for a long time. There was no over-hyping of her role.”
Did you watch Chelsea? What did you think? As good as Luck Russert? Jena Bush? Better?
Or none of the above?
