Media Buzz Plus Money Equals Power on Forbes List

Proving the adage “Money isn’t everything,” Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Ryan Seacrest may have made less money than Howard Stern ($95 million) last year, but all are “more powerful” according to the latest Forbes magazine Most Powerful Celebrity List.  Rankings are based on several factors other than money, (press coverage, web coverage, social rank, etc.) According to the list Limbaugh is ranked 19th and made $69M last year. Beck ranks 23 (right between Jennifer Anniston and Adele) and made $80M, and Seacrest ranks #29 on the list 29 with $59M.  Stern is right behind Seacrest at #30.
