The Daily Scab screws WGA writers

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

I just read about this. I'm really surprised. I love watching the show and missed seeing new ones, but I don't want it back at the expense of labor.

I know, right?
I'm apalled at the powers -that-be think they can manage without writers in the firstplace. Ever notic how an actor is so hip and cool and smooth--until you see him on a talk and he's an idiot? That's writing.
And that's what makes actors look good.
Why is music and enetrtainment always run by talentless power brokers?
Nevermind, I know.

But check it: if I was a comic and a writer and the host of a fake news show.......technically, would doing improv without a script be writing or acting or...what?
