Joining us on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast is Rachel Sklar of Charitini.com and Abrams Research.
The Menu regular talks about the Amazon Fail yesterday, whether scoops matter in the Internet Age and…well…pirates.
“Paul Krugman said yesterday on This Week on ABC, he made a joke about trying to equate the puppies and pirates as a photogenic distraction, and I thought that was inappropriate because at that point Captain Phillips hadn’t been freed,” says Sklar of the tone of some pirate coverage. “You’re talking about people boarding boats with AK-47s.”
Also discussed: another Los Angeles Times ad that’s drawing attention and criticism.
