Advertisements Not necessarily "wrong." Reporting it as news is just premature, that's all. The rumor is indeed as Mike repeated, that the foundation for a deal has been more or less reached and that they hoped that the strike would be over by Christmas. It's just a rumor right now that was conveyed by Deadline Hollywood Daily yesterday. The latest news is that both sides are being extremely reasonable, and that very productive talks continue. Unless one side or another does something extremely stupid, it's very possible that the rumor could indeed become true.
