Bernstein Analyst Criticizes Media Executive Pay Scales

Jul 22, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Bernstein Research senior media analyst Michael Nathanson singled out News Corp. and CBS for particular criticism in a report that argued that senior executive pay in the media business is out of line with company performance, Broadcasting & Cable says.

He noted that the five top media CEOs took home, on average, $26.6 million last year, and wrote: “Given the relatively poor one-, three- or five-year performances of most of these stocks, the rich compensation packages look even more extraordinary.”

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
