NBC News Blocked Chelsea Clinton Marriage Equality Ad: Report

NBC News stopped Chelsea Clinton from appearing in an ad supporting same-sex marriage during the 2012 campaign, BuzzFeed reported on Thursday.

In August, Clinton told Vogue magazine that she is ready to embrace the more political aspects of her life, but her status as a “special correspondent” for NBC News appears to be getting in the way. Clinton has been on the NBC payroll since November 2011, working as a special correspondent. Though she has filed very few reports for the network, NBC has reportedly prevented her from making a series of political moves during the past year. In October, the New York Post claimed that Clinton had been virtually absent from the 2012 campaign trail because of her NBC job.

BuzzFeed wrote that Clinton had cut a series of web videos in support of a marriage equality referendum in Washington state, but that NBC “scuttled” the ads.
