Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

NBC News prevented Chelsea Clinton from supporting gay-marriage during 2012 US prez campaign

Washington -  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.
