On The Menu: New Moon, Rupert Murdoch Dissing Google and Glenn Beck


It’s the start of a short week, and the promise of turkey is making it difficult for us to concentrate on today’s media news. Thankfully, Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven, hosts of the Morning Media Menu, are not having the same problem.

This morning, Jason and Matt discussed a wide range of media news, from the most recent Twilight movie, New Moon, and its big opening weekend, to Rupert Murdoch‘s plans to remove his Web content from Google.

“It does seem like a way to really annoy readers, however,” Jason said about Murdoch’s rumored plans. “I’m thinking of being a reader right now, and just the idea that I have to go from one search engine to the other to find the news that I want, it doesn’t sound like a very pleasant experience.”

Lastly, Matt and Jason talked about Glenn Beck‘s plans to position himself as a “political organizer,” planning voter registration drives, conferences and rallies. “I think it’s being a little more savvy than being a straight up politician,” Jason said of Beck’s plans.

Bonnie Fuller Launches New “Blogazine” HollywoodLife


We’ve been hearing for months now about how Bonnie Fuller, formerly of Star and Us Weekly, was planning a media comeback with her new gossip blog, poaching Corrynne Steindler from Page Six and Laura Schreffler from New York Daily News along the way.

Now the day has finally arrived: the launch of the “female-focused” blog HollywoodLife.

Billed as a Web site that crosses traditional magazine coverage with “interactive conversation” for women — as well as “feminine bling” from Fuller herself — HollywoodLife has already drawn in huge advertisers (Sony, We television, Old Navy) for the big names it promises to deliver. Of course, their first (and largest) post up right now is about the New Moon premiere in L.A. last night with a streaming video of Taylor Lautner, Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson walking the red carpet.
