A má gestão compensa

(Via Vanity Fair, via The New York Times, via Daily Intel):

“Top executives at the country’s largest media companies continued to reel in multimillion-dollar pay packages in 2009, a year of widespread cost-cutting throughout the industry,”.

See if you can match the executive’s obscene salary to the terrible news about recent layoffs at his own company. The lucky champion will win ... a renewed disgust with this country’s fetishization of avarice!

1. CBS’s Les Moonves, $43 million
2. Viacom’s Philippe P. Dauman, $34 million

4. Gannett’s Craig A. Dubow, $4.4 million
5. The New York Times’ Arthur Sulzberger Jr., $4.8 million
6. McClatchy’s Gary B. Pruitt, $2.6 million

B. “[Redacted] eliminated more than 10,000 jobs in 2007 and 2008, including about 2,000 layoffs last fall, and [redacted] executives have said repeatedly that they expect more downsizing, including layoffs.”
