May 8 - Today on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast we're joined by IFC Media Project host Gideon Yago.

He talked about what he thinks of the current state of the industry. "Right now we live in a time when the news business is held in such low esteem," said Yago. "As long as I've been working in television broadcast journalism, I can think of half a dozen stories, from the election night in 2000, to the run-up of the Iraq war, to the handling of this financial crisis just to name three, where the media totally missed the boat on the story, or in certain cases was an active participant in disinformation."

Also discussed: Yago's thoughts on torture memo coverage, what changes were made from last season and What We Learned This Week (featuring "ladies growth hormones").
