Newspaper Guild President Challenges Arianna Huffington

After calling on unpaid Huffington Post writers to strike, Newspaper Guild president Bernie Lunzer published an open letter to  Arianna Huffington today about the controversial issue.

Online, Lunzer’s letter included the dramatic image posted above–a poster created by the Guild Freelancers. What do you think is the ideal resolution to this public debate?

Here’s an excerpt: “When The Newspaper Guild urged other writers to honor the digital picket line, your spokesman Mario Ruiz said, ‘We stand squarely behind The Newspaper Guild’s mission of ensuring that media professionals receive fair compensation.’ We invite you to demonstrate this commitment by sitting down with the Guild to begin a dialog about the future of journalism. We would like to discuss the values that we share, and build upon them to meet the rapid changes and demands taking place in the industry.”
