Nikki Finke is sleeping on the job again...

It's already 1:20 p.m. and she hasn't covered the rally outside WB? Tsk tsk.

There is a Rally at Warner Bros. Studios, Hollywood Way Gate, Wednesday, March 11, 2009 from 11am - 2pm.

That's the Entrance where the water tower is located.
Parking on side streets. Watch the parking signs.

By mid 2006, Warner Bros had cleared "....300-plus television series, and about 14,000 to 15,000 episodes of programming" for Internet streaming, VOD and other internet use. (Robert Ellsberg for the Huffington Post, June 5, 2008).

Who knows how many more have been cleared since 2006.

Warner Bros. CEO, Barry Meyer, CBS Leslie Moonves, Disney ABC TV Anne Sweeney, AMPTP's Nicholas Counter, "called for the end of ... residuals". (Michael Cieply for the New York Times, July 11, 2007).

We must fight for our residuals and resulting pension and health benefits. Vote NO on the Contract.

In solidarity,

Scott Wilson
Henry Kingi

Please attend. Your SAG residuals are on the line. I will see you there.

Almost as impressive as her 48-hour cooling off period between the announcement of the SAG authorization vote (as posted below) I got via email and her coverage of it.

UPDATE: Nikki is letting us know that Mickey Rourke will be in Iron Man 2, something that was a foregone conclusion two months ago. But nary a word about SAG.
