Feb 19, 2009  •  Post A Comment

At least 150 members of the Writers Guild of America, West, picketed Fox’s “American Idol” on Wednesday, marching and chanting in front of CBS Television’s offices to protest reality and game-show working conditions, the Hollywood Reporter says. Their chants included “Simon, Simon, you can’t hide, we can see your greedy side!” The picket was part of an effort to pressure producer FremantleMedia North America to provide health care and pension benefits, the trade paper says.
