  •  What is so weird is that much of the national (0+ / 0-)

    print and broadcast media are unionized.
    Most of the major media markets and production
    centers and facilities are not in right to work states.

    Unless I am terribly mistaken, every major pundit,
    or tv personality is a member of more than one of
    the related trade organizations. SAG/AFTRA/IBEW
    NABET/ etc. I suppose the 'big names' may abstain
    from joining, or active participation for appearance sake.

    Obviously, some may be precluded contractually,
    even though I believe that coercion to be illegal.

    I would hate to believe that it doesn't matter,
    and that editorial decisions are now completely
    in the hands of those who seek to bind ours.
    Perhaps it was always thus.

    Thanks for all of your efforts.
