A question for the media savvy . . . .
What does a guy like Howard Fineman get paid? Used to be, he was on the staff of an old media organization. Newsweek, as I recall. Now he's seemingly unemployed, or at least without a gig that he wants used in his three second standard teevee intro bio. I think he might be writing for HuffPo, but have no idea what, if anything, they pay.

There are others like him. Media talking heads who are not, or at least will not admit, any political connection. Essentially, they want to appear as impartial jounalists.

What do these types get paid for their "political analyst gigs on the likes of MSNBC?
