Ellen Cancels New York Taping Trip

Not long after Ellen DeGeneres beckoned bile from Writers Guild members for crossing picket lines, the talk show host has killed plans to tape The Ellen DeGeneres Show in New York next week. Among those “delighted” with her decision—Michael Winship, president of the Guild’s East Coast arm. “She knows that the Writers Guild East would have been there to protest her lack of solidarity, not only with her Guild writing staff but all the striking members of the Writers Guild, of which she is a member,” Ms. Winship said.
