Courtiers at NBC bid farewell for now to Chelsea Clinton
With all those hickeys on her posterior, will Chelsea Clinton be able to sit down for the next week? It’s hard for pregnant women to stay on their feet for extended periods of time, so there may adverse consequences to the abasement the Peacock Network has put itself through, currying favor with the almighty Clinton Machine.
As you probably know if you follow political news, Ms. Clinton, with no journalistic experience, skill or appeal (beyond her relatives) landed a $600,000 a year entry-level gig at NBC New (later modified into a monthly contract), cutting her teeth on hard-driving “stories featuring people or organizations doing public-spirited work.” There’s nothing quite like fluff to provide the invaluable experience that will earn her the credibility her lack of experience fails to deliver.
But now that her mother looms as a potential presidential candidate, appearances would be even worse (if that’s possible) should NBC News continue to employ her. And besides, she has a baby due soon, and those critical minutes of bonding each day before she hands the tyke over to the nanny squad and housekeepers (assuming she follows the practices her mother employed in the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion) might interfere with the customary devotion to duty as a news hound she has demonstrated.
So NBC News is bidding a fond farewell to Ms. Clinton, at least for now. But not before demonstrating the deep grovel characteristic of its stance before progressives with power. The UK Daily Mail:
Alex Wallace, senior vice president at NBC News, praised Clinton today and didn't rule out working with her in the future.
She told People: "Chelsea's storytelling inspired people across the country and showcased the real power we have as individuals to make a difference in our communities.
'While she will be missed, we look forward to working with her in the future.'
No doubt Chelsea and her mother will continue to champion the little guy, making sure everyone has opportunity in America to waltz into high paying jobs for which they are unqualified.
