The Viacom Walkout: It Is OnS

Thousands of Viacom's permalancers and contract employees have been encouraged to walk out and rally today at 3 p.m., in protest of the terms of their new contracts. N.B.: we rebut this announcement a little. The Times and the Post and others certainly have been alerted, and no doubt they'll finally show up today, but they sure aren't covering it yet—and that's absolutely absurd. A developing news story that affects thousands of working New Yorkers? At one of the largest media corporations in town? Hello? Anyone?
