Media Matters & David Brock's $305K Salary

He's a leech upon the body politic and knows how to rake in the dough.

Openly gay and once conservative but now a flaming liberal in love with Hillary Clinton, before he hated her, David Brock is a nightmare of an operative.

One of his outfits is Media Matters for America. According to their 2014 IRS 990 filing, it had $10 million in total revenue, overall assets worth $6.2 million and net assets of $3.1 million.

Here's the salary breakdown for the top executives, two years ago:

David Brock, Chairman: $305,266
Bradley Beychok, President: $233,907
Pilar Martinez, CFO: $207,408
Angelo Carusone, Vice President: $176,275
Eric Boehlert, Senior Fellow: $151,590

Brock is also the founder and head of the pro-Hillary Super PAC Correct the Record. The OpenSecrets.org site reports it spent $9.6 million on her behalf for the 2016 election cycle.

Sleaziness pays handsomely for Brock. He's a major reason why Hillary and the Democratic Party suck and lost in November.

There can never be enough scrutiny of the media, right and left, and the nonprofits that monitor the press.

That's very interesting, Michael. Thanks for looking into this. Speaking of media, it would be very interesting to see what the current salaries are for KQED. As I recall, there was a bit of a scandal a few years ago over the inflated salaries at KQED. I can't help wondering how much of the almost constant on-air fund-raising is the result of these high salaries.
