Thumbs Down

Last night while watching the still-Ebert-less Ebert & Roeper, I discover that they are no longer doing thumbs up and thumbs down on the show. Why? Ebert is using it as a negotiation tactic to sign a new contract with the show's distributor. Update: Ebert's response.


In a letter to Romenesko, Ebert says he not demand the removal of the THUMBS.

Thanks, added it. (Can't believe I missed this story earlier.)
