Writers Guild of America strikers accused of crossing their own picket line

The strike by the Writers Guild of America, currently blacking out major TV and film productions in the US, has been accused as a sham as some writers who have been seen on the picket lines with placards they are alleged to have written themselves. 'That's strike breaking, in my book,' said one TV producer, who has snapped up the rights to make the strike into a TV drama. 'What an arc - writer gets replaced by AI, writer removes his labour, breaks his strike by writing prose to support the strike,' he said, holding up the four sheet document provided by the WGA outlining their demands. 'This is the plot outline, thank you very much,' he said.

'You can't make it up,' said one striking writer, before realising he'd just supplied the strapline to the drama.
