    Proof positive that you don't need talent or brains to be successful in America.


    Or good looks.


    Or much of a work ethic.

    This is much more of an indictment on NBC Universal to me...

    A good argument for everyone to apply for a job at NBCU.

    The accuracy of the list comes into question when they say, "...he hosts a daily show." If they did any research at all they would have known that Howard hasn't done a daily show in almost 15 years.

    The list is based on hearsay, they added the assumed $15 million NBC payout with his $80 million Sirius salary to get $95 million. It doesn't factor in his investment income or whether those two salary figures are accurate and reflect actual compensation to Stern.

    He also pays a third of that in taxes. If anybody should be for Trump, its Howard.
