Leno's monologue

This answers my question about Jay Leno's self-written monologue violating union rules.

Key graphs:

"The Writers Guild of America had scolded the "Tonight Show" host earlier Thursday for penning and delivering punch lines in his first monologue in two months, aired on NBC the night before.

NBC quickly fired back, arguing Leno, a guild member, was right and the guild was wrong.

"The WGA agreement permits Jay Leno to write his own monologue for `The Tonight Show,'" NBC said in a statement. "The WGA is not permitted to implement rules that conflict with the terms of the collective bargaining agreement between the studios and the WGA."

The writers guide isn't consistient, not a good way to get their point across. Do they want the strike settled? On Thursday, Jay delivered jokes with no punch line to satisfy the strikers. They need to work to resolve or they will strike theirselves out of work.
