If you've ever been curious about the salaries of some of the top executives at Media Matters for America, the progressive media watchdog group financed by  George Soros, here you go.

The Poynter Institute, which provides resources and training for journalists, posted the salaries (after looking at the non-profits 990 tax form) of some of Media Matters' top talent. According to IRS reports from the end of 2009,* Media Matters had net assets of $2,774,565 and listed the following annual salaries:

David Brock, chairman and CEO: $286,804

Eric Burns, president: $240,579

Tate Williams, chief of staff: $162,812

Eric Boehlert, senior fellow: $115,000

Ari Rabin-Havt, vice president of communications and strategy: $134,484

All that for declaring war on Fox News and throwing a victory party when Glenn Beck left the network in June.

Poynter also has the 2010 salaries for the conservative Media Research Center, which you can view here.
