Katie Couric May Lose Her $10 million a Year Job At Yahoo News

Katie Couric, former CBS News anchor is "eyeing an exit from Yahoo News" according to Page 6.

Eyeing an exit???

Katie gets paid an astonishing $10 million a year from Yahoo to do...what... exactly?

Now, I know we ALL tune in regularly to see what Katie has to say about whatever it is she has to say something about... whatever that is...  

She recently touted that her obituary for Prince was watched 5 million times.  

Of course, Psy's Gangham Style was watched 1.5 billion times, which means that Yahoo should have paid Psy $3 billion a year.

Maybe he needs Katie's agent?

I can't blame Katie for taking the money. I would. Who wouldn't?

But such a pornographic salary speaks volumes about why Yahoo is in such trouble. For a web site, they have some remarkably old ideas about how content for the world of social media works.

Which reminds me, who is the top paid Facebook contributor and how much does her or she get paid?

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
