The Writer's Strike

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know this has been covered all over the place but the thing is this: This is a VERY important issue and too much coverage is not possible.

So, what is the deal, you say? Some greedy writers whining about not getting enough pay? How about greedy Korporate Amerika trying to squeeze as much profit out of the writers as possible. By, say, oh...charging advertisers for online content and sharing none of that revenue with the writers of that content. Example: Viacom suing YouTube for $1B for content infringement yet continuing to tell the writers that there is no revenue to be made off of internet content.

Watch this video for a more in-depth look at the issues:

And for a lighter approach from the Daily Show writers:

PLEASE - Support the writer's strike.
