Morning Media Menu: February 5

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu we talk to Jossip.com founder and editorial director David Hauslaib who tells us that while there are plenty of gossip sites out there he doesn’t “see a lot of creative things going on, I see a lot of copycatting.”

Also up for discussion: Why the AP’s potential lawsuit over artist Shepard Fairey‘s Obama HOPE image may be a lose-lose situation for the company. And why celebrity weight-loss (and gain) is a potential win-win for magazines.
