Oh, I can’t wait to see the comments reacting to this Op-Ed. Meanwhile, the clueless Los Angeles Times chalks up yet another anti-WGA screed in its opinion pages while the anti-AMPTP rants are very few and far between. Get this — an editorial pages editor there was under the mistaken belief that Variety editor Peter Bart was “neutral” in this negotiations. Yeah, maybe on Mars.
(By the way, I never called Ridley an A-lister and I can’t imagine anyone who would. When I broke the news,I said WGA Member John Ridley Goes Fi-Core and that “he has brought attention to himself during the writers strike with his blogging on The Huffington Post very critical of the union’s leadership.” That’s his claim to infamy.
