    • The usual. Advertising revenue and corporate synergy. Plus who would pass up the chance to have Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room presented by Twitter.

  1. Smart move would become an instant netflix they could steam all their shows say the new designated survivor directly to every single twitter account. Also BamTECH runs the stream for the NFL so you have that… the price is a bit iffy disney cant afford 16bilion plus so your looking a shareholder dilution and or load up on DEBT. if you thought penny pinching was bad for the china park just wait if they do something like this……also the days could be numbered for WDWNT keep breaking news disney could shut them down! lol……

  2. Don’t see how “According to Bloomberg” and with an actual site link is considered stealing valuable information regarding a POSSIBLE bid. Interesting news though keep em coming.

  3. Will never happen, the FCC will block Disney from doing so. They should’ve blocked Disney from buying Marvel and Lucasfilm and the FCC needs to break up the company to the point that the company is back to where it was in the 60s.

    • I’m fairly sure you are trying to reference the Federal Trade Commission and not the Federal Communications Commission, who regulates technology. Any who, Marvel would have possibly gone into bankruptcy if the Walt Disney Company had not picked it up. Lucasfilm was pretty much a given considering the relationship already present. I believe the same could be said for Jim Henson Productions.

      • That’s the point. Marvel needs to go into bankruptcy and it would be a beautiful moment if they did. DC is better than Marvel in every which way and even Batman & Robin is better than the MCU. If I ran Disney, I’d have Joel Schumacher take over directing Marvel movies and turn them into a camp fest with nipples and butts.

      • Both. The government should control the media in all forms to the point that they need to forcibly break up all the media companies like Disney, Viacom, Comcast and Newscorp and force the individual divisions to be their own companies like they used to be and companies are legally banned from buying up other properties. The movie industry should be used for propaganda.

    • ESPN has been a drain on the stock for awhile now. Subscribers are reportedly dwindling. Some say it’s just the “cord cutters,” those who aren’t getting cable anymore, and not content. Disney seems to be trying various ways to get ESPN to customers. IMHO, it’s rapidly becoming unwatchable. More controversy reporting than actual sports. The same lineup for years now. Watch 3 shows in a row and they just rehash the same controversies. I have it on my Apple TV lineup. Wanted to see highlights of my Indians clinching the AL Central…. 31 all-sports clips and NONE were of the Indians!! The passing or Mr Palmer was # 21 or so. I did find an Indians report way down the list under Baseball. I find myself going to MLB-TV, The Golf Channel, CBS Sports, or NBC Sports way more than ESPN anymore.
