All the information is collected from very reliable sources. Contacted more than a dozen current editors, former editors, publishers and journalists for this article. Let’s not forget one very important point though; there are only two persons who know the EXACT salary, the person himself and his accountant 🙂

    I am wondering about the credibility of the source. I know a couple of editors personally, and very closely. They say that their salary is far lower than it is stated in this report. Can the reporter of this post can expose the source of the information?
