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?

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
