    Short NBC gig for Chelsea?

    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.

    ...and the last two paragraphs are:

    An NBC News rep said, “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.”

    A Clinton rep added, “Chelsea is at the beginning of her contract, and when she gets closer to the end, discussions will begin about whether or not to renew. In the meantime she is very much enjoying her time there and looking forward to her next piece airing.”


    Lame gossip piece is lame gossip piece.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Could be, but I guess time will tell eh? People often say things when speaking to media that are 100% opposite of the actions taken in the end. Have you seen her reports? meh....My daughter could do better....Wrong last name to get in the door though....

    I have to wonder if she got the job due to her own abilities, hard work and working up the ladder or did she get the job because of her parents. I suspect she got the job because of her parents. If NBC wants to pay for a name then let them.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Is it ok with you that elite libs continue to get the same types of privilege that they constantly scream unfair about if it is perceived to be a conservative?

    See, I thought it was kind of a fun, light bit of news to talk about, clearly it strikes a nerve....BTW, jamesrage has it spot on imho.

    he got that job because he bashed what his father stood for. Now if Chelsea sounded like Ann Coulter you might have a point

    I dont care. I mean I really really REALLY dont...but isnt this the kind of topic most liberal type folks just tear into? You know...hating the offspring of the rich and privileged getting all the opportunities because they are nothing more than born with the correct bloodlines?
