Last evening around 1AM in Jersey, Kevin Smith logged into the bulletin board on his View Askew site and launched into a brief but succinct damnation of some never before heard of movie news site called Movie Poop Shoot.

Breaking News Concerning The New WGA Contract
More details concerning the WGA/AMPTP agreement are leaking out.
