So if this headline is correct then one of the sources for this supposed "special dispensation" that Verrone and the WGA gave Jay is -- wait for it -- NBC.
Thank goodness NBC is bringing us trustworthy and unbiased information about what's REALLY going on between the WGA and Jay Leno.
Look, guys, let's face it: who's the one party in this situation who has something to gain from writers fighting with each other?
That would be the corporations that own the networks. Networks like NBC.
NBC would like nothing more than for a war to erupt between writers right now. They want us to fight, as I said below. They want us arguing and angry with each other, because anything that comes from that fight is good for them.
The simple fact is, Jay Leno doesn't have a dispensation or a "pass." NBC is wading into this for one reason only: an attempt to divide and conquer.
Let's not play into it.
