Writers, Who Needs ‘Em?

Via Paddy at Cliff Schecter’s blog.

I was actually just talking with a friend last night about how remarkably funny the videos the WGA has put out during the course of their strike. They’ve almost all been significantly more funny and creative than anything you see on TV, which is a pretty clear statement about how destructive editorial control by TV executives and producers is on the creative process. Frankly, if the writers had final say in what the content of their shows was, I’d probably end up watching a lot more TV.

Also, it’s great to continue to see so many prominent actors stand with the WGA and support their efforts to inform the public about what’s going on in Hollywood.
