The writer's strike is on, as TV and film writers get the most exercise they've had in years walking the picket line. The contract dispute centers on residuals, particularly online and from DVDs.

The NYT is off 4.5% daily, and 7.5% on Sunday. New York Post is down 5% throughout the week. If this type of thing keeps up, people will start saying that the newspaper industry is in some sort of decline!
