    Dominique Strauss-Kahn IMF Salary vs. Bay Citizen CEO Salary. In the wake of the arrest of IMF Manager Dominique Strauss-Kahn, CNN asks if the World leader's $440,000 salary was too much. They compared the IMF with The World Bank, and came away with the point that observers say it's the right amount. Well, let's compare Dominique Strauss-Kahn's salary with that of Bay Citizen CEO Lisa Frazier, who makes $400,000. Is that justified, given CNN's questions about Dominique Strauss-Kahn's salary? The answer's no. $100,000? Yes. But for Frazier to make as much as the Dominique Strauss-Kahn or President Obama, and yet be in charge of a regional news website is outrageous. It's not personal, only business. And the business fact is that The Bay Citizen can't justify paying that high a salary given the small size and Internet traffic footprint of the news website.
