Chelsea Clinton is just as broke as her poor, impoverished mom.
Chelsea Clinton earned an annual salary of $600,000 at NBC News before switching to a month-to-month contract earlier this year, sources with knowledge of the agreement told POLITICO.
Clinton, who joined NBC News as a “special correspondent” in November 2011, was up for renewal or non-renewal this year. Instead, the sources said, the network decided to keep her on the payroll on a month-to-month basis so that the two parties could sever ties if Clinton’s mother, Hillary, runs for president.
So that’s more than $200,000 per year. NBC paid Clinton to be an unwatchable correspondent who didn’t write or produce her own stuff. Nice work if you can get it…
She only ever starred in a handful of stories. They were boooooring puff pieces. Chelsea Clinton has zero charisma and presence. This is middle school-level work, with all due respect to middle school broadcast students.
Is that $600,000 worth of talent? Nope. It’s $600,000 worth of access and $600,000 worth of trying to groom another generation of Clintons for the presidency.
