On The Menu: A Former Fishbowl-er Takes On J-School


By Amanda Ernst Comment


Today on the media- bistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven dug up today’s most interesting media headlines.

First up, a discussion about former FishbowlNY contributor Hunter Walker’s recent gig writing about his adventures at Columbia J-School for Gawker. Given Hunter’s experience — he’s worked at AOL, The New York Times and Condé Nast as well as Mediabistro and Gawker — “I think the idea of writing about going to journalism school might be more interesting to him than actually some of the stuff he’s going to learn there,” Jason said.

Also discussed: Bill O’Reilly’s recent attack on GE in light of the ongoing spat between O’Reilly and Keith Olbermann, a law suit against an Anna Nicole Smith biographer and a Wall Street Journal article about purchasing premium ad content versus using cheaper ad networks.
