Yep, it was hard for me to believe too.  But when you hear it direct from the mouth of one of the media's most trusted and reliable journalists, Bill O'Reilly, you knew it had to be true.

Last night on the TV Factor, Bill "I'm A Writer Too" O'Reilly brought on Emmy Award winning writer Bruce Vilanch and his neck to discuss the WGA strike and told his audience that the late night talk shows like Jay Leno, David Letterman and Conan O'Brien would be using material sent to them over faxes and email when they come back in January.

Obviously Bill, who told Vilanch that he was looking out for him, knows just how the business works. 

He explained that not only would they use material from scabs but that Leno and Letterman are "good writers and would be able to come up with their material."  He didn't explain how they would get around the fact that they too are members of the WGA and would be breaking the strike if they did write their own material, but Bill must know.  Afterall, he's a writer too.  He said so.

Not only the late nighters, Bill said, but that also "dramas," like "Desperate Housewives" would be using material faxed to them by "scabs." 

Bill did not explain, but I'm sure it's in one of his books, how Jay  would get fresh fruit and Daily Grille dinners back over the fax to the "scabs."

Those interested in writing for TV during the strike might want to pick up Bill's, "Folks Can Write For TV Too."

Finally.  Shows written by the Folks.  It's what America is all about.  It's about time and most important....It's about the kids. 

WGA member, Steve Young, is author of "Great Failures of the Extremely Successful" ( and his "All The News That's Fit To Spoof" appears in L.A. Daily News opeds every Sunday(, right next to Bill's...really
