Rock star salaries?

This guy has a point.  Journalists could keep their jobs if companies would pay them instead of paying millions to people like Diane Sawyer.  I’ve never understood why the people who do all the heavy lifting must suffer pay cuts and layoffs while the rock stars make millions.  I think this is true of news organizations and radio companies.  The rich get richer, the poor get poorer  —  if they are lucky.  If not, they become a statistic.

I also know people in my industry who will argue that the Diane Sawyers of the world deserve their pay and that paying them like this is a competitive move.  So is it good business?  Does it even matter if journalism suffers?
