MPR and Kling’s Compensation Focus of Blogosphere

If you’re Minnesota Public Radio– as Web 2.0ish as anyone in the field– the prospect of being blogged by giants like Mickey Kaus and Glenn Reynolds must be nice. Except when it’s over $500,000 salaries. (Also Newsbusters)
The Star Tribune started it:

While it’s conducting a fund drive for listener contributions, Minnesota Public Radio hasn’t claimed $190,000 in state funds that are available under a new condition that it reveal salaries exceeding $100,000.

MPR said it can’t claim the funds because they are earmarked for an outstate transmitter project and other improvements that aren’t completed. It says it has more than a year to claim the funds and a second installment of $190,000.
