Today on the media- bistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven were joined by Gawker‘s Hamilton Nolan, who came on to talk about the day’s media headlines.

First on the docket, yesterday’s Village Voice article about the optimism of just-graduated journalism students. “I think the best quote in that Village Voice story was the girl who had just graduated from j-school and she was like, ‘We’re optimistic, and maybe a little crazy,’” Hamilton said. “That pretty much sums up the qualities you have to have to go to j-school today.”

Hamilton also talked about his employer, Gawker, where many j-school grads probably hope to work in the future. “Gawker is probably one of the companies that employs more full-time bloggers than just about anybody,” he said. “But there is no reason why there can’t be more and more companies like that. Huffington Post is obviously big enough to do something like that, except that’s not really their business model.”

Also discussed: the New Hampshire newspaper editor who was accused of running a prostitution ring, the approaching deadline of Google’s settlement with authors and the backlash of “Julie & Julia.”
