Stupid Stuff Micro-Post: Les Moonves’ Paycheck

angry-151332_640Stupid Headlines that show up in my news aggregator, and maybe even other Stupid Stuff that I find–a new tradition I talked about here.  Who knows?  No one knows–it’s a big, damn mystery.  But the world is brimming with Stupid, and I’m setting out to document it and share it with you on days that I can’t think of anything worthwhile or positive to write about.

Today’s choice verges on the political–one of them thar one percenter rants.

“CBS Says CEO Moonves’s Pay Fell 14% to $57.2 Million Last Year”
No human being in the world is worth $57.2 Million/year, not even those dearest of human treasures: bikini models.  Especially the guy who brings us shows like “Two ku-mediumRacist Scatological Sex-Obsessed Bimbos and A Cupcake” and twelves hours a week of NCIS.  Next up: NCIS: Nebraska. It is shows like his–let’s double down and mention Two And A Half Men while we’re at it–that should make us embarrassed to be Americans in a way we haven’t been embarrassed since the great cultural morass that was the 1980s–yes, Les Moonves is worse than the guys who brought us both the Chevrolet Citation and these guys on the right.
