MediaTalk USA

Here’s the December edition of the Guardian’s MediaTalkUSA.

I give myself much credit for bravery for having somebody who really knows radio — Laura Walker, head of WNYC — and somebody who’s funny — Baratunde Thurston of the Onion — on the panel as I’m not good at either. They are great guests. We talk about Murdoch v. Google and Murdoch v. government and Murdoch v. Huffington (with sound from the two at the FTC hearings on jouranlism); Oprah and Stern leaving broadcast for new pastures; AOL & Demand media’s automated editing; and more. I really was nervous having Walker there; I did more retakes than ever!

And here‘s the latest edition of This Week in Google with Heather Gold as a guest. She’s also funny. I’m surrounded. (It was thanks to TWiT that I discovered and met Baratunde and had him on my podcast.)

    Great show. Thanks. My thoughts on M vs G.

    Murdoch is a renowned expert in anti-competitive business practices.

    He doesn’t want gov to step into failed papers. He is Napoleon on that turf. ref. http://www.jeffschubert.com/index.php?id=54

    Could he be afraid of competing with Google for these busted pieces of infrastructure? What would Google do?
