Morning Media Menu: Monday, Monday! Edition

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu (admittedly through the fog of flu) Steve and I talk about Chris Matthews renewing his MSNBC contract — Steve is slightly skeptical of my theory that rumors Matthews took a pay cut might only endear him further to a public enraged by executive bonuses.

We also discuss WebNewser’s scoop that ABC is having to change the name of their daily Web show from “The Fix” to something else (Steve says it could be “The Quick Fix,” and looks like he’s right) because Chris Cillizza has been writing a blog under that name since 2005 — it’s still unclear how ABC missed this in the naming process. And finally, will bloggers pay for online news? I say yes, Steve says maybe. Also, how long till paid content becomes a reality? I think we should start a bracket. You can listen to all the past podcasts at and call in at 646-929-0321.
