Yeah, sorry about that. I'm kinda being a dick on this issue today because I'm sick of people who hate the writers for striking.

I've seen a couple of polls that indicate that the public is on the writers side. Of course, that's a month and a half into the strike. In two or three months, it could swing the other way.

So, assuming you support the writers, may I ask why?

I haven't seen any polls of viewers, but I would assume the majority of America either doesn't know about the strike, or just doesn't care. If I had to guess, I would think that most people are against the writers, just as they would be when/if pro athletes strike.
