The Daily Beast has published a list of the highest paid TV anchors, and it’s massively depressing. It’s sad because some of the people featured in the list don’t do much at all. Like Kelly Ripa.
According to a “highest paid TV star” list from TV Guide, Ripa makes $20 million a year just for acting ditzy on a morning show. Of course Bill O’Reilly gets paid $20 million a year to spread hatred and ignorance, so maybe we shouldn’t be so upset about Ripa’s salary.
- Matt Lauer – $25 million
- Anderson Cooper – $11 million
- Sean Hannity – $15 million
