    Karmazin has earned more than $37 million since he took the job in November 2004 and stands to clear another $125 million or so next month with a planned exercise of stock options. Meanwhile, the stock has gone from about $9 shortly after he took over, before its merger with XM, to its recent hovering in the low $2 range. His disastrous six-year performance locks Karmazin in the basement of our annual bang-for-the-buck CEO rankings at number 197 out of 206.

    No wonder he's Howie's boy.

    They both do shit jobs for outrageous and unconscionable salaries, then claim to be underpaid.

    It would seem to me the higher up you are on the corporate ladder, the less work you have to do, since most of it is being done by the people below. That type of pay for simply signing off on the work of others is ridiculous.

    Asked whether Sirius’ audience has grown enough to do without the notoriously temperamental star, Karmazin demurs. “Howard is our single-most-listened-to channel.”

    Oh man siriXm is in huge trouble if they think h-100 is the most listened to channel

    Prediction: Sirius goes into Bankruptcy protection sometime in 2013. This effectively voids all big contracts, including Howchies.

    yeah maybe it is the truth and if so it says way more about the future of XM being fucked than anything else possible could.

    I highly doubt it's the most listened to channel at this point though, maybe during the first half of the first contract but no way now

    He said "channel" in the singular. Could it be that he has no idea that 101 exists, just like Howard?

    You know what, when people are rolling quarters to pay for their gas for the week, it kind of makes sense the hatred we all feel for these "poor little rich" guys who want more and more and more millions. Go suck a dick. Most sane people would be happy to have just a percent of that income. Fucking greedy fuckers. I hope they lose it all.

    Robin is a big supporter of the Occupy movement.
    She is too dumb to realize that Mel & Wiggy are the face of greed and corporate corruption.

    Howard and Mel have a lot in common. They both get paid insanely well to do shitty jobs. And they both got monstrous choppers.
