UPDATE: Colby Hall emailed us to say that they linked to FishbowlDC once they learned of the mistake. Mediaite didn’t steal the piece, and we don’t really think they’re shady.

His first pick is the screenplay of The Social Network, by Aaron Sorkin. Considering that Facebook was part of something like one out of three conversations over the year, we agree with this choice. Here’s Creamer’s take:
Rivaled only by Wikileaks and the iPad, the continued ascendance of social media was the most important development in the communications business in 2010. Facebook hit half a billion users, Twitter took $200 million in funding, and every aspect of culture from politics to business continued to change. It’s an epic tale and, perhaps fittingly, Hollywood told it best.
What Yeezy taught me is that Twitter — once a manageable, useful haven for smart stuff — is increasingly a shitshow directed by celebrities bleating for yet more attention in a fashion that’s at once nauseating, depressing and, I’m ashamed to say it, heart-rending, especially with someone as talented as Kanye.
Mediaite publisher Dan Abrams happily reported today that five-time Emmy award winning reporter Mark Joyella is the most recent addition to the his team. Joyella will serve as the site’s TV editor and brings oodles of on-air and print experience to his new position.
In addition to his numerous reporter and anchor gigs in markets as large as Miami and New York, Joyella also has contributed to the New York Post and runs his own blog LocalNewser. Prior to joining Mediaite, Joyella became the first community supported journalist to align himself with The Coaching Commons — a nonprofit site that seeks to create digital content and develop innovative, sustainable news models.
