The most overpaid “special correspondent” in the world has announced her departure from NBC, as she prepares for becoming a mother and continuing her role at her parents’ workshop.

Chelsea Clinton Mezvinsky, at the tender age of 34, is giving up her $600,000 per year gig at the peacock network, she told People Magazine on Friday, and later confirmed by Alex Wallace, a senior vice-president in the NBC News Department.
Clinton said in a statement, that she “plans to continue focusing on my work at the Clinton Foundation” and welcoming her and her husband’s first child.

Although she had no journalism experience when hired by NBC, her exorbitant salary caused ripples throughout the industry, especially among those veteran staffers who personally realized where her largesse was coming from.

She originally worked with Brian Williams, to mixed reviews, on his “Rock Center” program, and when that was cancelled, she switched to occasional feature stories for NBC’s “Nightly News.”

Nonetheless, the ever-fawning liberal network sucked up to the end.

Chelsea’s storytelling inspired people across the country and showcased the real power we have as individuals to make a difference in our communities,” Wallace said. “While she will be missed, we look forward to working with her in the future.”
