Members of the Writer's Guild of America (which covers TV & movies) are out on strike. This is a link round-up.
WGA members on the strike:
• Joss Whedon
• Brian K. Vaughan (via)
• Jane Espenson (via, who also a link to Obama & Edwards's comments)
• J. Michael Straczynski (follow-up here; he also opines that "In order to have any real impact, the strike will have to be at least as long as the '88 strike, which lasted six months")
• John Rogers, aka Kung Fu Monkey, who also has links to a lot more (plus a brief note -- but with bonus Coultony goodness! -- here)
(I haven't seen any specific comments from them, but the strike is also supported by David Simon, creator of The Wire, Ronald Moore, creator of the revamped Battlestar Galactica, and a great many other TV writers/producers too... almost everyone whose work I enjoy in TV (and the rest I probably just haven't seen yet, to be honest.))
Other WGA strike blogging:
• Nathan Newman, always good on labor issues, adds a bit of historical context
• (Update) ...and, as usual, what Digby said.
I'll add more links if and when I see 'em...
Update: Again via Atrios (who's been blogging this a lot), this is a blog focusing on the strike. Lots of interesting stuff there.
Another Update, with more Whedon-y Goodness: Joss Whedon has been blogging the strike over at Whedonesque; aside from the above-linked comment, here are his posts on the topic: one, two three. ("I can’t let this shoddy journalism go unanswered. They have turned me into a blogger. And that I do not forgive.") The first one is the one to read if you read only one.
And just for kicks, here are photos of the Mutant Enemy writers on strike.
(PS: I think that this link should get you to a Whedonesque page with just Joss posts on it -- including, presumably, any future posts he does on the strike.)
