The Writers Guild of America strike and the absence of late-night comedians

The Writers Guild of America strike started on 2 May 2023. For me, its primary effect has been that I don't spend time every morning watching excerpts from "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", "Late Night with Seth Meyers", and "The Daily Show." In the absence of their overviews of major news in the United States (such as Trump indictments), I can still get information from other sources. But I miss their takes on other things, such as the brawl on the dock in Montgomery, Alabama, last week. I can read about it online, but I would have loved to hear Roy Wood, Jr., respond to it on "The Daily Show." (Andrew Shields, #111words, 15 August 2023)
