Curious to hear which media moguls made mad money in the past couple of years?
Here are some recent yearly total compensation stats from the highest paid moguls in the entertainment industry:
-Disney's Bob Iger earned $28 million total in 2010
-Viacom's Philippe Dauman earned $84.5 million total in 2010
-CBS' Les Moonves earned $43.2 million in 2009
-News Corp's Rupert Murdoch earned $22.7 million in 2010
Certainly, there are some moguls who have taken paycuts for the sake of their companies, but the big guys here seem to be doing quite well for themselves…especially Philippe!
$84.5 million?!?!?!? It's good to be the President/CEO of Viacom!
What do U think of these salaries? Do U think these media moguls are getting paid what they deserve?

Way to go, Google! This is an impressive move!
As a holiday bonus, Google's CEO Eric Schmidt has decided that the company will give all of its employees $1,000 cash (tax free) AND they'll be increasing salaries across the board by at least 10% starting January 1st!
As if that weren't enough, the company will also gives employees further raises equivalent to 1X each employee's target bonus for the year AND they'll be eligible for "merit increases" based on their performances.
Smart move, Google!
World domination Company success will be MUCH easier to attain when employee morale is high.
What do U think of Google's holiday gesture? Generous? Not enough? Too much?
