Blind Items Revealed #1

March 19, 2020

When this CEO stepped down, it sent shockwaves through the business and entertainment community. It was immediate and unprecedented. It also came after a meeting with a global security firm advising him what to do in regards to the foreign money makers he was forced to shut down. He concluded things were going to hell in a hurry and he didn't want to be associated with the company when it crashed and burned. He will be ready to be its Phoenix though after it is all over.

Hard to believe that Disney needs help.

Remember what happened to the Roman Empire, brought down by the rot from within ! Lol

Who wants 2b CEO during a $6 Billion debt offering, cancelled new cruise ships, movies tanking, closed resorts... Men, this Corona thing is really steamrolling over everything

The entertainment/tv part of Disney isn't in very good shape. ESPN particularly overspends for programming and lays staff off on a regular basis because people are dumping cable tv and not watching ESPN.

I'm sure all over the Disney empire. CERs are being cut or eliminated. Disney really works the way they spend capital. Every year they come around in June or August and tell you to not spend your capital money. Then the games begin of moving the capital from one budget to another. And wow, did they want to make just about everything a capital expense.

Time to burn that pedo company to the ground.

I got a hooky Disney+ link this week, its just released in the UK.
It looks shit.
Nothing on it I'd want to watch. Even shitty Pluto TV is more appealing.
It's okay if you have small kids, I suppose but I cannot see myself ever tuning in.
If Disney+ is meant to lead the surge back to profit then the mouse is happily fucked.

Doubtful. Either info you are receiving Enty is off, or purposeful misinformation. Iger is facing HUGE problems. Fact.

Baloney. He hasn't left the company, he was named "Executive Chairman" after he left as CEO.

He said in 2017 he was going to retire. He is 69. https://www.vulture.com/2020/02/why-did-bob-iger-resign-disney-ceo.html

Flashy Vic said...

@Studio 54. So he said clearly he was going to resign anyway but hasn't?

Taken a backseat as the company hits the most troubled time in its history after exhausting its resources on an unprecedented buying spree that he instigated?

The markets aren't convinced he's still in charge otherwise it stock price wouldn't have tanked in the past few weeks and the timing of his fleeing the scene is purely coincidental to virus finally cornholing the planet.

Some leadership.

Corona is a Karmic leveller!

@Flashy: Markle is doing the voiceover for the Disney+ elephant movie. She’s got the most irritating voice ever; cant believe they’re using her. Wondering if it’s connected to the $3 million that Disney donated to their Foundation, which doesn’t even exist. I think
Iger got roped into that at The Lion King premiere?

OKay said...

This is such a crock. Iger won't be able to do a damn thing to help "when this is all over," and his bailing in the first place wasn't such a good look for him (even though he didn't actually leave at all).

I wonder if the Disney + is the same forward "for three children" + as Savior Celine dIOn's?

"for THE children"

Or "our" Children, as childless women like Gloria Steinem like to say.

Hmmm... he resigned after a meeting with a global security firm advising him what to do in regards to foreign money makers he was forced to shut down....He sounds like he is some deep doo-doo. If Disney survives, I can't see how they would ever bring him back because he most likely will be behind bars?

ScottBinTN said...

Nothing in the way of Iger and prison. Keep watching the down low from here. Shocking.

Hard to be gettin your "phoenix" on from Gitmo....
