Yesterday I wore my spiffy new strike shirt (that a friend at the Guild was kind enough to send me) to meet my editor, y'know, 'cause that's what the cool kids are wearing these days. And I was standing on the platform at 42nd Street when, wouldn't you know it, the head writer for THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS came up to me to let me know that the story about his writers crossing the picket line was wrong. (Real story: a non-writing producer who once wrote something and stayed for the healthcare crossed the picket line.)
"We're solid," he said.
I was thrilled.
I'm also glad to hear that the AMPTP has agreed to start talking again ... in a week. I'm a little frustrated that the WGAe is not striking again till Tuesday -- the two days they take off are the two days I'm in New York! So you won't get a report from the picket lines. Unless, God forbid, they're still at it around Christmas.

Entertainment Weekly printed an article saying that multiple Young and the Restless writers crossed the picket line.
As we all know this is inaccurate.
Please write to EW and ask them to print a retraction.
In these sensitive times, journalists should check their facts. Those who don't should be held accountable.
