Last year, Fox sports struck a deal with the L.A. Dodgers that baseball's commissioner shot down.

It was a crazy 20-year, $3 billion deal that gave the Dodgers 30% of the Fox Sports channel.

Discussions have started again and a new deal has apparently been put on the table.

And it's a BIG one.

Hormel Foods' net income is on the rise.

And it's all from Spam.

No we don't mean spam email campaigns trying to get people to buy their products, we mean actual Spam. The canned "ham" product.

Maybe with the 2012 apocalypse event nearing, people are buying up tons of Spam.

Dr. Drew Might Be In Trouble Because Of GSK!

Filed under: Legal MattersDr. Drew

Uh oh!

Dr. Drew Pinsky might be in huge trouble if it can be proved that he was paid to talk up Wellbutrin and its antidepressant effects!

Did they slip him a hundo (short for hundred dollar bill) before he gave talks on his radio show??

Nope, try $275,000 (allegedly).

All of this came about during the justice department's case against drug company GlaxoSmithKline, which has agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor criminal charges and pay $3 billion for committing healthcare fraud.

Which is the largest fraud settlement like that in U.S. history.

Back in 1999, Dr. Drew allegedly was paid the money over two months in “settings where it did not appear that [he] was speaking for GSK.”

Whoops!

Maybe people shouldn't do shady things like this — then they wouldn't get into trouble down the road!

Easy as that!
