Americans hate the media with a passion. So they'll be happy to know that the average U.S. journalist—grrr, the MSM!—is paid even less than the average American.

Do you know how much the average U.S. journalist makes? How much would you guess? Just guess.

Take a few minutes and think about it.

Now. How much would you guess?

$31,580 per year, median income, as of 2011.

Your local university strongly encourages you to go to journalism school anyhow.
