Producers Say the Strike Has Cost Writers $106 Million...and Counting

The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers has a fun new flash widget on their site with a running tally of how much income the writers have dropped into a black hole since the strike started. Right now, it's at about $106 million. Kind of a dick move if you ask us, since producers trying to screw writers is why they're at impasse. Besides, writers stand to lose a lot more if they let producers slime their way out of fair compensation deals for new media and internet distribution. Hey writers! If you need some cash in the meantime and don't have Aflac, talk to us. [AMPTP]
