Idol Picketed

(Reuters) A year after the Writers Guild of America ended a major strike, members of the WGA West had picket signs out in Los Angeles. Their target? The biggest show on television: Fox's "American Idol."

By 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, at least 150 red-shirted guild members were marching and chanting in front of CBS Television's offices on Beverly Boulevard to protest working conditions in the reality and game-show sectors.

Carrying signs reading, "'Idol' gives back ... but not to its workers" and chanting, "Simon, Simon, you can't hide, we can see your greedy side!" the writers and their supporters were trying to pressure FremantleMedia North America, "Idol's" producer, to provide its writers and other workers with standard industry health care and pension benefits.
