Today on the Menu: Google’s New Clothes, Tiger Needs Balm, Comcast Buys NBCUni for TV Domination

Our guest on the Menu today was Mediaite TV Editor Steve Krakauer, the kindly gent who created our podcast before heading off to Dan Abrams‘ frappy (scrappy + fun) news site. Krakauer, a former NBC page, is well versed in the TV business &#151 which made him a perfect candidate to explain:

&#151 Comcast’s purchase of NBCUniversal, which he says is a good thing for the ailing network (and its strong cable properties).

&#151 Google’s move to allow content providers to block you from seeing their sites gratis, something Krakauer and co-host Jason Boog say could be good for niche sites like, for example, AgencySpy. Why? We won’t have to compete with the Wall Street Journal for Google ranking on breaking news.

&#151 Tiger Tiger Woods y’all.

&#151 Chris Matthews‘ remarks regarding the “enemy camp” also known as “West Point.”
