Picketers Hit ‘The View’ In NYC: “Huge Slap In The Face Of Labor That They Are On The Air”

This is Day 141 of the WGA strike and Day 68 of the SAG-AFTRA strike. In the wake of two prominent talk show hosts reversing course on a return to work, striking writers in New York City have stepped up their picketing against a high-profile holdout: ABC’s The View.

About 50 demonstrators showed up Tuesday outside the ABC television studio complex on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and urged arriving ABC employees not to cross the picket line.

It was the second straight day of what Writers Guild officials called a renewed campaign against The View after Drew Barrymore and Bill Maher abandoned efforts to restart their shows without their unionized writers aboard.

People filing into ABC offices on Tuesday were greeted with chants of “The View is a struck show/Don’t cross the picket line” and “Hey, View, be like Drew/Shut it down.” The long-running daytime talk fest has aired without interruption — and drawn protests — since the writers strike began in May, and moderator Whoopi Goldberg told viewers that “we’re still writing things on cards.” The show wrapped its 26th season in August and launched its 27th on September 5 with Goldberg and returning panelists Joy Behar, Ana Navarro, Alyssa Farah Griffin and Sunny Hostin.
