I'm sorry, but this doesn't really get into what the writers' issues with their former contract really are. I would be interested to get some insight into that.

You raise a good point, Miche. The WGA is focusing on the new media residuals issue, as it is the #1 issue (and really, it is the issue over which the writers are striking). There were 25 contract points the WGA went in with to the discussions.

However, if you can give me an idea of what it is you'd like to know more about, I'll do what I can to help get the information.
