Limbaugh, Beck Top Newsweek List of Power Earners
Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck are at the top of yet another “power” list of media pundits and personalities. Newsweek’s “Power 50″ ranks the politicians, ex-politicians, pundits and media personalities who parlay the giving of opinions into lucrative financial earnings for themselves. Contributors to what Newsweek calls the “commercialization of political personality” also include, (and you’ll notice a certain political slant here) syndicated radio personalities Sean Hannity, Don Imus and ex-syndicated radio talk show host, Bill O’Reilly. However, the list is not the exclusive domain of the conservative commentators- Keith Olbermann and Jon Stewart also have earned enough money to appear on the list.
