Meg Whitman Pays Bloggers Better Than She Pays the Help

What do bloggers and maids of indeterminate legal working status have in common? They don’t get paid very well. That is, unless you work for Meg Whitman. Well, as you probably heard, Whitman’s undocumented housekeeper didn’t get paid very well. But her bloggers sure do.

As the Daily Caller’s Jonathan Strong reported last week, Whitman has consistently paid upwards of 1,000 percent the market rate for advertising space on the conservative blog Red Country. She’s been paying $15,000 a month for advertising all year for a site that only gets 125,000 unique viewers per month. That’s a buck for every 8 people. Not bad.

In related news, this Fishie would like to announce the launch of his new investigative blog, “Meg Whitman is a strong, family-oriented patriot who’s good for America and California and may just be the female reincarnation of Jesus Christ himself — and Jerry Brown smells like doo doo.”
