Washington, Nov. 24 (ANI): American broadcaster NBC News reportedly stopped Chelsea Clinton from appearing in an ad supporting same-sex marriage during the 2012 presidential campaign, according to a report.

In August, Clinton had 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, The Huffington Post reports.

According to the paper, 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, the paper said.

In October, the New York Post had claimed that Clinton had been virtually absent from the 2012 campaign trail because of her NBC job, the paper added.

Clinton had also cut a series of web videos in support of a marriage equality referendum in Washington state, but that NBC "scuttled" the ads, the paper concluded. (ANI)
