    as is Leno, O'Brien, Maher and Colbert.  They are all WGA members.

    A scab, by definition means that when you cross the picket line you do so to work.  Managers are more affectionately called "rats" while scab is reserved for those who are basically your contemporaries.

    PS, the WGA has not officially called them scabs.  They don't have to.  To set up a picket line where no picket line had existed is to force them into the category of scab.
