christopher_hitchens_x200.jpgThis week every blog, newspaper, and media website in the city scrutinized the brand-new site, Mediaite.

Today’s Morning Media Menu featured the site’s senior editor Glynnis MacNicol and TV editor Steve Krakauer, talking about Michael Jackson’s memorial service, Sarah Palin’s resignation, and the site’s popular and controversial Power Grid.

GalleyCat took a look at the fledgling site’s book coverage, finding a story about Joe Scarborough’s bestselling book and the Power Grid’s rankings for authors like Thomas Friedman, Michelle Malkin, and Christopher Hitchens (pictured, via) in a scientific popularity contest.
