News You Can Use

The news writers, producers and editors are going on strike. Sadly it is only C BS.

CBS News writers, producers and editors voted to authorize their labor union to call a strike after working without a contract for two years, Reuters news agency reported Monday.

About 81 percent of the nearly 300 CBS members of the Writers Guild of America voted to authorize the strike, the union said in a statement. The union represents 500 CBS employees in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
It's a start.

It is too bad Dan Rather has filed suit against the network. This could have been a golden opportunity.

We can hope this means that CBS news anchors will have to report "just the facts, m'am". Or maybe they won't be on the air at all.

Either way will be an improvement.
