NBC News Paid Chelsea Clinton $600,000 Annual Salary (Report)
When Chelsea Clinton was hired by NBC News in 2011, critics pointed out a conflict of interest for the network in employing the daughter of a potential 2016 presidential contender, Hillary Clinton.
Those arguments were renewed on Friday, as details regarding Chelsea Clinton's compensation have been leaked to the media.
An NBC News spokesperson referred THR to a statement issued to Politico that declined to offer comment or details of the contract.
Chelsea Clinton debuted on the network as a special correspondent in December 2011 and later contributed to NBC's Nightly News and the since-canceled newsmagazine Rock Center with Brian Williams.
Meanwhile, on a media tour supporting her latest book, Hillary Clinton recently sat down for a high-profile interview with NBC News' Cynthia McFadden that aired on June 10.
