FishbowlNY Editor On The Menu: Layoffs, Glenn Beck and Election Night

FishbowlNY editor Amanda Ernst joined the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast this morning, where she and hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven talked about the media layoffs and other big industry news.

Of course, Amanda wanted to talk about news of layoffs at Time Inc. and Forbes over the past two weeks. It’s the same layoff story we heard last year, as companies from all industries plan for next year and cut waste in the fourth quarter, she said. Still, it makes for a pretty uncertain work environment for those across the industry.

Jason wanted to talk about Glenn Beck and his effect on the best-seller list. Seems that every thriller that Beck mentions on his show becomes a best seller, Jason explained. “It’s such a big thing for publishers,” he said. “They are looking for options. Book reviews are closing right and left, and the idea that this Conservative talk show host has become the go-to place for thrillers is really kind of amazing.”

Also discussed: Twitter vs. cable news on election night.
