Today on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu, host Jason Boog of GalleyCat was joined by FishbowlNY editor Amanda Ernst and author and blogger Alex Irvine.

Amanda talked about the news that Wired editor Chris Anderson pulled passages from other sources like Wikipedia and included them, unattributed, in his new book “Free,” as well as the Virginia Quarterly Review blogger who discovered the plagiarism.

Also discussed: Michael Jackson‘s death and the subsequent media coverage, a Jackson-related scene from the upcoming Sascha Baron Cohen movie “Bruno” that is now of questionable taste, how book reviews are becoming less available to authors as a source of promotion for their books and Alex’s upcoming projects.
