CBSNews Writers May Strike

Published by at 10:17 am under All General Discussions

The world of fiction lovers is may be facing a very trying time as CBSNews ‘writers’ may show their solidarity with their Hollywood cousins in striking. It would seem the make beleive in Hollywood and at CBSNews is more coupled than anyone imagined. If CBSNews went dark no one would care. No one. In fact, I dare them to strike and learn how truly irrelevant they are in America.

    NYC already has several city wide strikes either on or in the voting stages in the entertainment industry (particularly Broadway).

    HuffPo has been loaded with following the action on all fronts (they hit my RSS reader 6 or 8 posts in a bunch. Now FireDogLake and a couple more left side blogs are starting to chime in.

    Pure industry news blogs are of course following it, since that is their beat, but they are doing it for the most part in a more balanced way.

    The left side is slanting it more toward the political spin of the whole situation rather than the merits of the issue, but that is no major surprise there.

    It just seems it has taken longer than usual for the talking point morning email list bullet points to spread among the left side for some reason.

    The shallowness of some of the left side postings even show their heart and passion is not in the issue, but they are participating to keep the group on message.

    I honestly don’t think anyone will notice. It doesn’t take a lot of skill to sit and read off the AP or Reuters news wires.

    Please, oh please, do strike in sympathy. And also, please, enlist the support of the other usual suspects.

    Do something for the America and American’s. Just once.
