Fox News Contributor Salaries Revealed in Financial Disclosures
10:46 AM PDT 3/13/2019 by Jeremy Barr

At least 10 members of the Trump administration have served as on-air contributors for the network.

Snippets:
Across cable news, the salaries paid to on-air contributors remain shrouded in mystery, ranging by network and by market demand for the contributor's expertise. But, because at least 10 former Fox News contributors have served in Donald Trump's administration and been forced to file financial disclosure forms, a window into the network's payroll has been opened.

Among the eight Trump staffers who were forced to disclose what Fox News paid them to contribute, salaries averaged about $141,000 and ranged from a low of $31,336 for New York socialite Georgette Mosbacher (who serves as ambassador to Poland) to a high of $569,423 for John Bolton, who now serves as Donald Trump's national security adviser.
-----------
A Fox News spokesperson would not comment on how the network decides contributor salaries, but a person with knowledge of the process said that many non-famous contributors start with a per-appearance fee agreement that provides them with a small guaranteed retainer for agreeing to be exclusive to Fox News. If the person resonates with Fox's audience and delivers ratings, the network would likely offer them an annual, flat-fee contract, firming up their contributor status.

----
Should anyone ever doubt how these miscreants can lie and deceive and spew GOP dogma without remorse, just come back and look at what they're paid on Fox. Far too many Americans would hold their noses and do the same to earn far more than in any regular job and never get a hand dirty.

6. A note at the bottom of the graphic at the end of that article said....

Source: U.S. Office of Government Ethics Disclosures.

I assume that refers to this Office:

U.S. Office of Government Ethics

Link: https://www.oge.gov/

Observe in the side bar where you can go to a searchable database on individual ethics disclosures.

7. Exactly. And the really warped thing is that they are just parrots.

Although I'm not sure we'll ever know how the structure of their secretive network of think tanks and connections to the ultra wealthy works, it's certain they simply parrot what comes from above. It's just to orchestrated to be otherwise.

And, if they stay faithful, they are guaranteed a lifetime of the good life with speaking engagements, book deals, exclusive club memberships, etc.

Every soul in the world should have such a gig!........
