Chelsea Clinton Leaving Her Unbelievably Cushy Fake Job at NBC


The headline and first paragraph of this article are priceless.

Kicking off the annual Labor Day Friday News Dump, Chelsea Clinton has announced, via People, that she will no longer pretend to be a reporter. The once (and future?) First Daughter has been a “special correspondent” for NBC News since 2011, when she was dubbed, following her debut, “one of the most boring people of her era.” For the occasional feel-good segment or interview with the CGI Geico gecko, Clinton earned a reported annual salary of $600,000, or approximately $26,724 for every minute she was on-air.
I don't begrudge her ability to earn $600,000 per year. Lots of people earn money for doing little: actors come to mind.
