Schwarzenegger: Talk, yes; broker, no

Gov. Schwarzenegger has begun talking to both sides in the writers strike:

But he said that his phone calls to studio and guild reps should not be taken as an indication that the governor is engaged in brokering an agreement. Because unions and guilds are regulated by the National Labor Relations Board, such a lead role has fallen to the federal mediator.

Ted Johnson at Wilshire and Washington has the full post.
