(THIS ONE’S BIG) Watchdog “Honors” current SAG/AFTRA Magazine with Review.

First-off, any Magazine that has “Adorable” Debbie on the cover gets off to a good start. As a product, it is an obvious slick, well done vehicle. In this case, seemingly assembled as a showcase for paid for movie ads seeking SAG Awards. A union staff endeavor that seems a tad self-self serving. You think?As for the rest of the the magazine it’s nice to see members getting their photos published. Most of the regular columns seem interchangeable from one publications to the next. The only one that jumped out at me was the one that stated, “SAG-AFTRA is blessed with exemplary staff and an extraordinary navigator in chief executive David White, who has honored us by agreeing to extend his contract.”

“Honored” us? No, no. no……

Look if he really wanted to do that, he’d honor us by telling us, the membership, how much annual salary we’ll be paying him in that new contract over the next four years. He’s already honoring us by letting us pay him over a Half-Million dollars a year?

And the truth is that we wouldn’t be receiving that honor if he’d gotten the job as the head of the NBA Players Association that he’d been shooting for! Unfortunately when he took that shot he came up with an air-ball!

But, what the hey, I’d like to wish him, Ken, the entire board and staff a happy Thanksgiving! Gobble, gobble!
