Morning Media Menu Welcomes Back CNN’s Ali Velshi

mornmm.gifCNN’s chief business correspondent (and fellow Canadian…Steve is surrounded!) Ali Velshi joined us again on today’s podcast. The last time we spoke to Velshi was the morning after the President’s Not State of the Union speech. This morning he weighs in the the coverage of the Obama’s trip to Europe saying that, unlike Tucker Carlson, he did not necessarily find it fawning: “I think the coverage reflected the fact we weren’t sure what was going to happen…I think it can be fawning and accurate at the same time.”velshi_4-8.jpg

Velshi also speculates on the reasons why the Wall Street Journal has had so much success with paid content. “It might be that the material in the WSJ is more important to its readers than some other news or some other content might be to their readers.” You can hear all the past podcast at BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call-in at (646) 929-0321.
