Ryan Seacrest Signs $30 Million American Idol Contract

Ryan Seacrest has signed a new two year contract to host American Idol for $30 million in 2013 and 2014.

Ryan Seacrest who is finishing a three-year contract of $45 million for hosting American Idol has signed a new contract for $30 million.

Seacrest will have earmed $75 million for hosting American Idol from 2010-2014. Seacrest is similar to the late Dick Clark in that he is a disc jockey, television host and producer, so the American Idol salary only represents part of his yearly income.

He will have to slow down sooner or later, because he has so many irons in the fire. Seacrest now 35, may still be able to handle the present load, but with him being a host during the Olympics this summer, it should curtail his Entertainment News hosting and his radio show workload.

I don’t know for a fact, but imagine that Seacrest has learned a lot from his late friend Dick Clark, not only about hosting, but about how to be a successful producer.

The value of Seacrest was evident when Steve Jones hosted X-Factor and seemed very uncomfortable and asked contestants and judges some very foolish questions. Meanwhile, Seacrest is very comfortable on television and in particular when hosting American Idol

American Idol wouldn’t be the same without Seacrest and nobody could really replace him. There are many television hosts, but Ryan Seacrest is the host other hosts need to emulate.



Was LBJ Mastermind Behind JFK Assassination?

I have often considered Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson as the architect behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The following article says that LBJ told his mistress Madeleine Duncan Brown that those SOB’s will never embarrass me again the night before the assassination.


It makes sense why LBJ was quick to have the Warren Commission Report say that the assassination was by a lone gunman. That is why Lee Harvey Oswald was silenced two days after the assassination by a bullet from the gun of Jack Ruby.

I don’t expect everyone to agree with me, that LBJ was involved in the assassination, but he sure had motive, which was that he would become the president, since he was first in line for the presidency.

We may never know the truth about what happened on that day in Dealey Plaza, but so far nobody has proved to me conclusively that Lee Harvey Oswald was acting on his own. He may have fired the fatal shots that killed JFK that day, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t part of a conspiracy to assassinate JFK.

2013 will be the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F.Kennedy, Hundreds of books have been written about the JFK assassination, which makes it difficult to sort out fact from fiction. The only thing we know for sure is that President Kennedy was shot down in cold blood on a Dallas street, but I still can’t believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted on his own.
