A&E’s Duck Dynasty remains a ratings powerhouse, and co-star Willie Robertson’s film God’s Not Dead is one of 2014′s biggest sleeper hits.

The decision was made in light of controversial remarks by a Duck Dynasty cast member against the LGBT community,” the public utility said in a statement. “The BWL is committed to diversity and respect community differences, and we regret if the contest offended anyone.

Economist Paul Krugman — who frequently uses his New York Times column to preach that rich people and Republicans are oppressing the poor with their capitalist policies — has been hired by City University of New York, which will pay him $225,000 to work on the ironically-named income inequality initiative.
His contract with CUNY was first reported by Gawker. He will be paid $225,000 for two semesters of work each year, or about $25,000 per month.
He is not required to teach during his first year of employment. Instead, the darling liberal pundit will be handsomely compensated for making media appearances and garnering publicity for CUNY’s Luxembourg Income Study Center.
CUNY also plans to reimburse Krugman $10,000 each year for travel expenses. A part-time researcher, or team of two researchers, will also be made available to him.
