WGA's Big Mistake

Most of TV is crap and hack-y.
- Michael Patrick King (audio commentary on DVD release of The Comeback)

First, the writers (and, to be fair, the producers) dumb down the culture, reducing the vast majority of TV and movies to a bunch of crap. And now they show their disregard for the political process in this country (you know, things that actually matter) by playing the pivotal role in the canceling of the CBS Democratic presidential candidates debate scheduled for Dec. 10th in Los Angeles. The WGA wouldn't agree to not picket the event. Candidates said they would not cross the picket lines. And so CBS pulled the plug.

Do the writers really think what they do is that important? And the sick thing is that most of them probably fancy themselves liberal Democrats.
