Writers Guild Blasts Huckabee For Leno Shot
They put out this statement:
“The Writers Guild is disappointed that Mike Huckabee crossed the WGA picket line today at NBC. We welcome the statements of support he has made for striking writers, but we ask him to respect our picket lines in the future and urge the media conglomerates to return to the bargaining table to make a fair deal that will put writers and the entertainment industry back to work.”
Huckabee was clueless about the state of the strike, even though he claims to support the writers.
“I support the writers, by the way. Unequivocally, absolutely. They’re dead right on this one. And they ought to get royalties off the residuals and the long-term contracts.”Click here for reuse options!
Told he was mistaken and that writers had cleared only Letterman’s show, Huckabee protested: “But my understanding is there’s a sort of dispensation given to the late-night shows, is that right?”
Told again that he was wrong, Huckabee murmured, “Hmmm,” and, “Oh,” before answering another question.
