Media News Junkies Meet Mediagazer

Techmeme is one of my favorite sites. It’s my morning “newspaper” that covers technology headlines from across the web. And now it’s joined by a new site just for media news, Mediagazer.

I’m thrilled to see the new site arrive, even if it means more reading for me. Much of the “tech” news on Techmeme actually is media news. Consider any story about how Google is interacting with newspapers, or in the ad space or even the rivalry between Google and Bing. Those are media stories, not tech stories — but tech has been forced to do double-duty.

Mediagazer has a bit more information about itself here and here, including that it is overseen by former Techmeme editor Megan McCarthy, who now moves to focus solely on Mediagazer. SF Weekly has a nice, short interview with her here.

There’s no source list of publications; Techmeme lacked one when it started and still does, as this tends to change over time. But Techmeme does have a Techmeme Leaderboard list of the most referenced sites. Mediagazer will gain its own over time, says All Things D.

Don’t understand the entire news aggregation idea? Check out my post, How Search Engines, Aggregators & Blogs Use News Content. For more about Techmeme and how it operates, see Q&A With Gabe Rivera, Creator Of Techmeme and Techmeme Now Deploys Human Editing Of News.
