Back to Clinton, who received $600,000 for only her last name one month of reporting “acuity” on the now-defunct “Rock Center with Brian Williams.”

Your move, America.

Pew Research Center data shows that coverage of Occupy Wall Street has reached early Tea Party levels. The research indicates that, after a slow start, the turning point was a question posed to President Obama during a presser last week. During the first week of October, OWS consumed seven percent of news coverage.

The Wall Street Journal Europe may be in hot water over allegations it sold copies of the paper in bulk to a consulting company it has close business ties to in order to maintain circulation numbers.

Investors are also questioning the board members’ ability to effectively and lawfully run the company because of its deference to Murdoch.
