Newsom Targets Hollywood Strike: Savior Act or Pure Politics?

Governor Gavin Newsom of California, a Democrat, has offered his assistance in mediating the contract negotiations between SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) and the WGA (Writers Guild of America) to put an end to the ongoing Hollywood strike. Unfortunately for Newsom, none of the parties involved have shown any interest in his intervention. However, it’s no surprise that Newsom wants to get involved because, you know, Democrats just love meddling in everything.

Anthony York, Newsom’s senior adviser for communications, stated that while the two sides remain far apart in their negotiations, the governor is seriously worried about the impact a prolonged strike will have on California’s economy. According to an economic strategist, the entertainment industry stands to lose a whopping $4 billion if Hollywood doesn’t get back to work soon. And you thought California’s economy was already in the dumps!

This strike isn’t the first time Hollywood has faced such turmoil. In 2007, a writers strike cost California a staggering $2.1 billion, according to the Milken Institute. So you can imagine why Newsom is keen on avoiding a repeat of that disaster. But let’s face it, when it comes to finding solutions to complex problems, Democrats are about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.

The writers are striking alongside the actors, all in the name of demanding higher pay and better creative protection against artificial intelligence, among other things. It’s just another example of the liberal mindset that believes money should just be handed out with no regards for the free market or the actual value someone brings to the table.

Although Newsom has expressed his willingness to intervene, it seems that no one actually wants his help. Who can blame them? The last thing anyone needs during a negotiation is a liberal politician sticking their nose where it doesn’t belong. It’s clear that the parties involved would rather try to figure things out on their own. Good for them, because honestly, they’re probably better off without Newsom’s interference.
