NBC News “special correspondent” Chelsea Clinton is a politically active person in a very politically active family. She also works for a news organizations that prides itself on fairness. Buzzfeed reports that NBC scuttled plans for Clinton to appear in an ad supporting gay marriage that would have aired in Washington State and online leading up to the election. Even though Clinton does not report on political issues for NBC, the ads were apparently a bit too much.
Three people who saw the videos confirmed their existence to BuzzFeed. They were fully prepared, with the script approved in advance, one source said. The video wasn’t intended for TV broadcast, a second source said, suggesting they were instead to be used as web-based videos. The source added that multiple efforts had been intended beneficiaries of the former First Daughter’s support.
