The Ticker: Clinton, CBS Correspondents, Comedy

  • Chelsea Clinton, who has been absent from NBC News since January despite the recent report that her annual salary is $600,000, has done two stories for “Nightly” expected to air “shortly,” according to AP’s David Bauder. NBC wanted to “avoid the appearance of a conflict” by having her on the air around the time of her mother’s book tour, Bauder reports.

  • Capital New York’s Alex Weprin talks to three female CBS correspondentsElizabeth Palmer, Holly Williams and Clarissa Ward — currently reporting in Iraq and Syria. “I think the one benefit in this part of the world being a woman is that sometimes it can be quite disarming for people to see women, to see a foreign women, and they are perhaps less likely to be suspicious of a foreign woman than a foreign man, less of a threat,” Williams said.

  • Fusion’s Yannis Pappas will premiere his first half-hour stand-up special at 12:30 a.m. Friday on Comedy Central. Watch a preview after the jump.
