WGA 08 Strike

Ray Bradbury pickets FOX.

In an amusing twist on the WGA strike theme, Craig Mazin reports:

WGAE Executive Director Mona Mangan has somehow managed to enrage her own employees so much…they’re now threatening to go on strike

This is the woman who has had CBS newswriters working without a contract for years now.

John Ridley goes fi-core, and someone notices. Since the WGA doesn’t have the most diverse membership possible, you’d think they might have tried a little harder to make the guy feel wanted.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert might have some ‘splaining to do. (A catch-phrase for which no writer received any residuals, let it be noted.)

Jonathan Tasini calls for the heads of academics who crossed the picket line to show up on The Daily Show. He’s still waiting for his call.

The strike could result in a big pay day for Canadian content providers. Re-run of Entourage or Curling ?
