Morning Media Menu Welcomes Back Willie Geist

mornmm.gifThe Menu is celebrating four months this week (also we’re international-ish, since I am calling in from snowy Toronto this week) and MSNBC’s Willie Geist was nice enough to make a return appearance to talk with us about, among other things, Blago!geist_4-5.jpg

“He’s like the greatest performing player ever…he always delivers!…I think riding Space Mountain is about the best thing I could have imagined him doing as he is indicted on a litany of felony charges back in his home city.”

So perhaps a Blago ghost twitter is in Geist’s future? Not so! “Only Blago can speak for Blago,” says Geist.

On a more serious note, Geist expresses amazement over the shockingly fast demise of newspapers nation-wide, and we talk about whether the NYT Co.’s threat to close the Boston Globe is a bargaining tactic. Also, questionable world records, and(!) if you don’t see Geist on Morning Joe tomorrow it’s because his (somewhat shadowy) bracket came through. You can listen to all the past podcasts at and call in at 646-929-0321.
