AMPTP responds to the WGA with 1,000-word document

They may not be talking, but the AMPTP and WGA sure know how to bicker.

“AMPTP: Setting the Record Straight” is 1,000 words of who did what to whom and when, a response to this morning’s blistering attack by WGA East president Michael Winship and other WGA statements over the past three days. You can download the AMPTP’s “Setting the Record Straight” here.

Key points —

* The AMPTP says it’s made it clear repeatedly that they oppose any expansion of WGA jurisdiction into reality and animation. It also insists that the WGA’s continued push for that oversight is why talks broke down.

* Winship and WGA West president Patric Verrone were not in the negotiating room Friday.

* The AMPTP claims it presented a new version of the economic proposal at 2:30 p.m. Friday, rather than at 6 p.m. as asserted in Winship’s letter.

* The AMPTP may believe the phrase “rock concert” is inherently shameful.
