    .............At the very least, to dislodge the YouTube giant will require a massive investment in popular talent. Katie Couric’s addition to Yahoo’s stable was a start, but the company is going to need to do a deal with someone like Howard Stern at an enormous contract rate. Stern got $500 million from Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: SIRI) in his original five-year deal and a similar deal for the next five years through the end of 2015. Stern will be available relatively soon, but he won’t come cheap. Just sayin’........

    Gotta hand it to Buchwald. That old wrinkly Jew knows how to start a whisper campaign.

    Broadcast.com was purchased by Yahoo in 1999 for $5.7 billion in stock.
