Now, I know it wasn’t 20 years ago, but wasn’t there another strike, or near strike by the writers guild which was in fact, the impetus for the Reality T.V. craze that we have now? Seems like I remember it that way…
To my understanding the writers are wanting changes regarding the downloads available for internet/phones, for dvd rentals/sales etc. Apparently talks were fruitless last night, so they are still marching.
All the late night shows are in re-runs, the daily episodes/soaps will be hurting soon. The evening eps that we love should be safe for awhile, but who knows how long the strike will last?
I saw on the news last night, the people delivering lunches to the writers on those shows, equipment rental businesses, all feeling the ramifications and the economy could lose up to one billion should the strike continue for any length of time.
That my friends is power. Here’s to a resolution. Fast.
Not even remotly related, but Today is going to the ends of the earth this week and holy crappidoodle-katie-bar-the-door my boyfriend Matt Lauer has FACIAL HAIR. He’s in the Arctic Circle. Hubba Hubba Hubba. That is not a bad way to wake up!!
