"The first Internet strike"

The LA Times quoted a WGA writer saying that this is "the first Internet strike." It covers the essential debate: Is writing and creating entertainment to mock the AMPTP breaking strike rules, or does it help the strike?

LAT argues the latter:
But these are writers, aren't they? If they're going to protest, they should use the best weapon they've got: their pens. That instrument would seem to be an awful lot mightier than the picket sign -- which, as a symbol of solidarity in the 21st century, has begun to look positively quaint.

well said.. pen over picket does make more sence.. the writers have made their point, they are the mind behind the entertainment machine.. but check out this humble entertainment executive who thinks otherwise.
