Presidential Politics, the Writers’ Strike and LA’s Economy
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Forget about the current TV season. Even next year’s season’s in trouble as TV studios cancel sixty-five contracts and threaten to cancel more. With the California primary three weeks away, Clinton’s ahead and four Republicans are all within the margin of error, but those who are undecided could change things in both parties.

Writers Strike and Its Impact on Local Economy ()
The Golden Globes show was reduced to a press conference and late night TV hosts are limping along without writers. Now, 20th Century Fox, CBS Paramount, NBC Universal and Warner Brothers have canceled sixty-five development and production agreements worth as much as two million dollars apiece.
Prop 93 ()
Proposition 93 on next month's state ballot sounds like a tightening of term limits for state legislators. But it would allow Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez and Senate Leader Don Perata both to serve an extra term in office. They’re Democrats, so why would Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger write an op-ed in today's LA Times supporting the measure?
