Exercising My "Viewer Discretion"

I've had it. That's it. The lies, the propaganda, the projection-as-truth, the bullshit, all of it.

Walt Disney Company, I'm no longer a viewer, listener, reader, or customer. For starters, television:

ABC (including the local ABC affiliate, KGTV Channel 10), ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Classic, ESPNEWS, ESPN PPV, ESPN Deportes, ESPN International, ESPN Classic Sport Europe, ESPN Latin America, ESPN Asia, ESPNU, ESPN2 HD, Disney Channel, International Disney Channels, Toon Disney, SOAPnet, ABC Family Channel, JETIX Europe, JETIX Latin America, A&E Television Networks (The History Channel, The Biography Channel, History International, A&E International), Lifetime Entertainment Services (Lifetime Television, Lifetime Movie Network, Lifetime Real Women, Lifetime Radio for Women, Lifetime Home Entertainment), E! Networks (E! Entertainment Television, The Style Network). And finally, the Ebert & Ropert show (yes, it's owned by Buena Vista Television, part of the Disney empire).

And no more Disney films. Including Pixar. Steve Jobs, you have a lot of explaining to do, being the largest individual Disney shareholder and having a seat on the board.

And no more visits to ABC.com, ABCNews.com, Oscar.com, Disney.com, Family.com, ESPN.com, Soccernet.com, Toysmart.com, Go Network, Disneysgamecafe.com, Expn.com, Abcsports.com, ESPNdeportes.com, or Movies.com

And no more listening to KGO news radio when I'm in the Bay Area.

That's it, goodbye Disney.

Wow! That's really more owning than really should be legal!

IIRC KGO just got sold by Disney to Citadel radio so no need to stop listening to Bernie and Raytal.
