In the New York Times, Maureen Dowd reflects on the show biz writers’ strike.

Hillary Clinton had the bad luck to fumble a debate before the writers’ strike knocked late-night comics off the air.

“I shudder to think what’s happening to all the kids who keep in touch with world news by listening to reports of late-night comedians,” said David Thomson, the film historian.

I watch so little TV that this strike will little impact on the way I spend my leisure time… but I am following the story because one of the issues is how writers will be compensated for online remediations of their work.
