Poor Rupert Murdoch. Before last week’s disclosure of his new salary, he was making only a measly $28.9 million — not even enough to crack the top 10.

It’s still not enough to match Jon Feltheimer, who registered a 400%+ increase over last year thanks to his new five-year contract. And keep an eye on Bob Iger, who signed a two-year extension last week with a potential bonus worth $60 million.
