I HATE DISNEY I HATE DISNEY I HATE DISNEY. Fuckin' Rat. I was a Cap Cities/ABC employee. Matter of fact, I was Cap Cities BEFORE we bought ABC. Lean and mean, well-run, well-principled. Took care of their employees if you worked hard--first thing they tell you when you sign on was "you're gonna be worked hard...but will be taken care of" and they were absolutely right. Had a hard-nosed approach to news to the point where it was so plain that (fewer fancy graphics, gimmicks, across the line) it was almost not competitive due to the lack of eyecandy but you slept well at night knowing you weren't being jacked around with some corporate agenda. When Disney took over they started moving news programs under the Entertainment Division. Think about that one. Same division that does cartoons, feel-good shows. GMA moved under the entertainment division and the morale plummetted OVERNIGHT--it essentially eviscerated the division. Instant mass exodus of news employees though a few have fought it tooth-and-nail for years. And nevermind what they did to the unions. You may not like 'em, but when pension funds were raided to pay off Ovitz, it was a precursor to Enron in its shadiness. We used to get memos from the higher-ups that had little Disney characters on 'em that said "Dear Cast Member". WTF? :huh Eisner and Ovitz are satan's spawn. I'll never forget that sadness...and eventual contempt...when Disney bought ABC. The clash of a lean-and-mean straightforward culture with the hype of hollywood and all its politics. The work of the devil.
