Is Tom Hayes a Digital Scab?
The Newspaper Guild has called on bloggers to form an 'electronic picket line' around the Huffington Post and boycott further posts until the HP changes its business model.
The Newspaper Guild asked Tom Hayes not to write this blog: "(It) called on bloggers to form an 'electronic picket line' around the Huffington Post and boycott further posts until the HP changes its business model. As the son of a union shop steward, I am pained, but I guess this makes me a digital scab.

To my fellow writers, I promise that you will make a living at this craft: just not the way we used to."
