The Marc Steiner Show

11/14/07 TV writers on strike!

It’s not the usual group of workers you’d expect to go on strike, not the auto workers, or municipal workers in some far off part of South America or Europe.  Members of the Writers Guild of America, tv and film writers, walked out over a new contract dispute.  They want to update their residuals payments to reflect the increasingly popularity of tv shows being streamed online, often free of charge to the viewer.

Interesting, the intersection of technology, media, labor……

So, will the next season of your favorite show be on as expected?  How much longer will the strike last?  Will our tv’s be sitting in the basement next to our old vcr’s soon, as we watch everything on our computers?  Joining us to answer all of your questions will be Baltimore Sun tv critic David Zurawick, at 1pm.
