Nick Counter (pictured above) recently rose from his coffin and lied to the media again. The WGA and strike captain Laeta Kalogridis, the writer of the Bionic Woman pilot, responded on United Hollywood:
But we hear rumors as well: that the conglomerates are the ones doing the threatening, both privately and openly. There are rumors that network executives have told showrunners that if any of their writers are seen speaking up during the strike, they expect them to be fired when the strike is over. We all know showrunners are being threatened with lawsuits for respecting the picket lines. And there's another rumor that one showrunner in particular has been told that the AMPTP is going to use him as "an example," that they're planning to sue him and then see that he doesn't work again.
Gosh, that sounds kinda like... blacklisting.
