FishbowlNY editor Amanda Ernst joined host Jason Boog on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast this morning to talk quickly about the biggest New York media story this week: the ongoing rivalry and back-and-forth spat between The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
“The Journal is planning to launch a New York section that is going to compete very directly with the Times, and [Journal owner] Rupert Murdoch over the years has shown no love…for the Times,” Amanda said. “So any chance they have to take a dig at them, they’re going to take it.”
Amanda and Jason also spoke with Robin F. Whitten, editor and publisher of AudioFile magazine, a publication about audiobooks, who made some great suggestions for holiday gifts.
