How Badly Do You Want to Interview Chelsea Clinton? ‘Stay on the Subject Being Promoted’

NBC is trotting out Special Correspondent for NBC’s “Rock Center with Brian Williams” Chelsea Clinton for interviews.

If you’re booked (and that is definitely an if), you will send all your intel, numbers, backup numbers and website, and understand that even if you get the slot you’re interview could be subject to change. What’s more, if you go over the 10-minute allotted time, PLEASE REMEMBER the operator may disconnect you. If you forget, you’re still getting the axe if you go over. And by the way, please stay on the subject being promoted. (A pleasant emoticon softens the blow of that last rule.)

Airing this Friday at 10 p.m., Chelsea visits Key West to interview author Judy Blume on her first feature film being created from her book, Tiger Eyes.
