Jeopardy host a scab

Ken Jennings crossed the picket line according to this article in USAToday about Mayim Bialik:


Bialik stepped away from the game show podium this summer in solidarity with striking Hollywood writers, according to a report from industry outlet Deadline.

At the time, "Jeopardy!" had one week of taping left in Season 39 that was meant to be hosted by Bialik, but Jennings crossed the picket line to finish the series' production before the summer hiatus, according to a person familiar with the plans who was not authorized to speak publicly.

Oh well, won't watch Jeopardy anymore, not while Ken the scab is hosting. He's not even entertaining.

Because Bialik got fired in what seems as retribution. That is a labor issue for striking workers when they appear to get targeted and fired. It’s also relevant because it was just announced today so it’s very newsworthy.
