Striking writers angrily rejected a new offer from producers to resolve the biggest sticking point in negotiations—compensation for internet use. The producers said they offered $130 million more in annual compensation to writers, who dismissed the deal as a "massive rollback." Talks to end the 3-week strike will resume Tuesday, the AP reports.
The writers' counteroffer asks for $150 million in additional revenue. An industry analyst says it's strange that the two plans differ on the surface by only $20 million, but that the two sides seems so far apart. "None of this computes," he said. "It's very difficult to analyze this in any rigorous way."
