Scripted television-related unions with a NYC prescence have been encouraging their members to honor the strike. There have even been rumblings about the strike kicking off on Thursday evening?
The strike will have a significant effect on our favorite pet story, Stephen Colbert for President. Most of Colbert’s “campaign advisors” and “campaign staffers” are, of course, his writers. The Colbert Report is a WGA workplace. Writers on strike = no Colbert campaign.
