"The strike took a $3.2 billion toll in direct and indirect costs on the economy of Los Angeles County, the home of most of the nation's TV and film production, according to a new estimate from Jack Kyser, chief economist for the Los Angeles Economic Development "

""At the end of the day, everybody won," Leslie Moonves, CEO of CBS Corp (CBS, Fortune 500).,"


I'm finding thee two statements to be somehow contradictory. ;)

In a few more months, it will be time for the SAG strike over the same internet download compensation. TV is going to suck for quite awhile.

As the warrior-poet Ice Cube once said "If the day does not require an AK, it is good"

TV's been doing that for quite a while.

I'd be ticked if I was one of the small business owners in LA relying on the movie business for my bread 'n' butter. I bet those guys have a hard time finding sympathy for the writers.

I'm not racist; I only disagree with President Obama's white half.

If you want financial carnage....anyone remember the grocery store workers strike of '04?

Yeah, the lack of deli section corn dogs was a major drag back then. Thanks for reminding me of the bad old days.

There are no bad keyframes, only misunderstood keyframes.
