Disney+ Announces Series Of New Projects

"Story. This week is the disney announced an absolute glut of new projects coming to disney plus or wherever else they might put things disney plus as we all know is a massive streaming service platform. That is growing constantly. that has tons of subs. But the walt disney company as we also know is just a massive player in the industry growing all the time and this was called investor. Day which i already think is a fascinating shift There are no instead of a sweeps. This is their way of letting everybody get excited about their content and its for investors. Their stocks went through the roof. Hit an all time high during this crazy time when people are like stealing food to survive. So it's weird. Because i feel like we're kind of living through the twenties and the thirties at the same time. These days disney went crazy because they just announced a nonstop lineup of tv shows and movies many of which are sequels or interational or offshoots from new star wars shows about characters that you probably never heard of even if you grew up loving star wars to new marvel shows just the images of all the logos alone overwhelmed me. I saw on social media. People just took right off their investor day slide which kind of feels like an apple announcement and and very much inspired by that. There's a lot of but wait. there's more there are so many strange things buried within this. It's almost hard for me to believe. And i think i told our jason helderman the writer. No film school as it was happening. I don't really think they're going to end up producing all of this content and he countered of course they are. But i just remember a time when bob iger. Ceo of disney said. There will be a new disney movie or a new star. Wars movie am sorry released every single year. That lasted like two years. I think before they sought not working and decided to scrap that plan. So i am not convinced that every single one of these shows is going to end up on disney plus or in theaters or wherever people are going to get things for example a live action hybrid chippendale directed by akiva schaffer from lonely island starring. Mullany and andy sandberg and the tweet of this from walt disney studios. You would have to check to make sure verified real account and not a joke because it's so weird there was also another like super weird one. That up was the movie. Light year and this to me feels like an abbott and costello routine. It's about buzz light year. But not the character. The toy from the toy story movies as chris evans who plays light year in this movie tweeted. It's about the real man. That buzz light year is based on which through everybody into some confusion. Because how is this so the toy is based on a real man but not a real real man a fake real man in the universe of toy story and this is the movie about the fake real man that the fake toy is based on in toy story. It's a little odd. It feels like we're at the point where. Ip is becoming just an endless feedback. Loop when i think about that for too long but the whole thing is just is just a crazy. This is the direction of entertainment. I think know again. I darren. James who's also on our team our tech writer at no film school about how there was a time when just one star wars show as lucas talked about like in the nineties seemed like impossible. Where's it gonna live. How are they going to produce. Now there's thirty and it's just like and because of the tech behind the mandalorian. It seems completely plausible and because of streaming platforms plausible to produce it plausible for it to be seen. And they have the subs. So they're making money. Everything about this is such a shaft in the industry.

Should investors 'let it go'

"Is the time for investors to let it go sure. So you know before the charts. It's really all about who you are in the market and what your timeframe as there have been plenty of where disney as gapped up like this today up thirteen percent. It's q one beat in two thousand nineteen was about twelve percent. Move on vaccine day november ninth. We know at jumped about twelve. But what we do know is after big jumps like that. It's pretty Sideways fallow on a week over week basis. But let's look at some charts. The first is the breakout. Conventional kind of thing everyone agrees is well recognized stock that moves above a well-defined range with a gap. And you can see it. There is the definition of a breakout. Now second chart look where the stock stopped. It stopped to the penny at the internal trendline in effect for the past year. And a half. I mean literally stopped on that line in fact it peaked. Essentially around eleven o'clock and it spent the rest of the day going sideways so it was aggressively rated but didn't really progress now to more charts. Where are we in relation to the hundred and fifty day moving average. You could use the two hundred and you could use the fifty but if you were to look at this chart disney is trading some thirty nine percent above its hundred and fifty day. Now take a look at the next chart. This is going back for the past ten plus years and you can see here again. The relationship of price with average price over one hundred and fifty days. So in the history of the stock going back to the nineteen seventies it is only traded farther above the hundred and fifty million one other time and in principle that gets the timeframes. Long-term this is hugely bullish tactically. I think you fade the move. You take profits all right. It's a carter says let it go. We'll see in a bit car options action. So you've got the fundamental story. You got the technical take from the chart master. How would you trade disney here. Brian kelly what do you say. So i with carter on this when i really like his take on this because if you think about it. This is a long term fundamental. Play here because not only are they going to have more movie streaming online. But we know about disney's that they have tremendous leverage in their platform right so they can go to the parks. The parks are going to reopen their cruise. Ships are going to reopen. They're going to be able to take what they do on disney plus and bring it to all of those places but that does take a bit of time. And you priced in this surprise here and so where it's trading now and remember. The stock was seventy eight and a half or so back in april march april so it has had a tremendous run this year. It is priced in an awful lot of good news and so for me. I think you get a better entry on this. It doesn't mean that. I don't like disney. In fact i think it's going to be one of the better ones coming out of the pandemic but i think you get a better entry. I would wait either for today's gap to be filled or for the low of today to serve as your support and then wait for that breakout so you like it long term. But do you think that there could be a pullback shorter-term james mcdonald. I think part of the betting here is that is that this is a premium product. That people will pay for it in fact they. They announce a price hike of a dollar in the united states. Twenty nine percent in europe and a bet on the management team a ceo. Bob shape may be new to the role. He's not new to disney and he's still got executive chairman. Bob iger around. I in terms of this execution which is a dramatic change in how the business the structure and how the business considers an executes content. Well bob eiger remembers the old days when you had a lot of customers and you had a big brand. You had a lot of action and there is a firm back then called. Aol that got everybody's attention stock ran up on potential and we saw where that happened and i love carter's technical analysis and always spot on with his fundamental outlook. But my grandma told me use common sense you know right now. The pe ratio is at eighty seven There's more forward-looking upside for this netflix. Which masters this game. Netflix's out similar subscriber growth from the boom from cohen. And look what happened. That sub growth then cooled off for the next three months in this covert level. Growth rate is not usable for the long term with disney. Netflix shows that more content equals more subscribers. And that's a good thing but we're shifting attention away from the other weaknesses with this company. This is not a tech company The media only makes up forty percent of the total revenue parkson products. Make up twenty three percent and they're gonna take massive hits here with the new lockdowns over the holiday seasons. Let's use commonsense international segments twenty three and a half percent of the total revenue. It's going to be suffering. There's no fed overseas to save them. So let's use our common sense and stay away from disney here up one hundred seventy five bucks. No way no way no way. We can't worry about the long term. We've got to survive this recession. That's coming not

"bob iger" Discussed on Back to Biz with Katie and Boz

"And I love that and then I work for two gentlemen who ran Capital Cities ABC named Tom Murphy and Dan Burke and Tom still survive. I still check in with him every once awhile consummate businessman. But what I mean by that is with great integrity. So not only they teach me business. They took taught me how to conduct business to walk away and never compromising from an Integrity perspective or judgment perspective. I wish was very valuable during a formative period in my life. I started working for them when I was thirty-four. And I work for them till Disney bought us in nineteen ninety five. And then lastly I worked for Michael Eisner for ten years and Michael was incredible in terms of his the the dead ambidextrous nature of his creativity. He had creative instincts about Theme Park attractions and parades and hotels to television series two books to Motion Pictures and he taught me to one of the language of those businesses. I only knew the language of Television. He told me to have a set designers I and assessing creativity when it came to the theme parks and he chews quite a perfectionist. So I was lucky and what and and I'm grateful to them to this day but it also taught to value of mentorship cuz and I've learned even more about its value in the last six months because clearly mentorship is both an inexpensive and a very very efficient Way of enabling people to have more opportunity and when we talk about diversity and inclusion we talking about we talk about giving people more opportunity a mentor can pull a big role in that and so since I stepped into the Chairman's role, but I was mentoring in before that. I have devoted more and more time to people giving myself to them and it's kind of interesting. I've collected a group of people some of whom by the way. I've never met except via Zoom. Yeah, and they include Chris Paul who is point guard in the NBA will change will be a Hall of Fame point guard present the NBA Players Association that mentorship became a friendship am entering some NFL players who are trying to create a business that provides better Financial Acumen and access to better Investments for young players a mentoring other people at the Walt Disney Company. I've got a I'm doing some mentorship of woman who started a really great small dog. In the Cosmetic space online direct-to-consumer and people have just reached out and either I read your book and I'd love some advice or I work in your company and I'd love to talk more about who I am and I've tried to be really generous. I've had to say no a bit cuz my schedule has gotten complicated, but I'm probably mentoring. I don't know six or seven people right now is that means so much. I'm sure to them and it'd be great to just Mentor somebody at the beginning of their career to didn't play for the NBA or the NFL that just you know, that would be a fun job on a fun thing for you to do. I mean, can you imagine how excited somebody who's twenty-five years old and you know, I always try to open the doors for people who have no contractions, you know whose father didn't go to school with their Uncle, you know, and all that stuff because I think it perpetuates this, you know elitism that we that that needs to be destroyed. So badly so find somebody who's like twenty four five and who would never in a million years have access to somebody like you that would be so awesome and I'll take that's good advice wage. I won't put an advertisement out about that Abigail Disney, you know, as you know recently or some point gave a critique of the Stark pay Gap that exists in many corporations including Disney and she kind of pointed a finger at you and said Bob Iger is kind of a nice guy and everybody around him or nice people what has become thought of is normal and the kind of thing. Nice people do isn't nice and somebody has to say the emperor is wearing no clothes. Somebody just has to say it. I you know, think she was talking about the fact that you earn a thousand times more than the average Disney employee and you know, you've talked about this before Bob, you know, have a salary around 66 million dollars, but you're not, you know, this is kind of a trend your name. The only CEO has been criticized for this at a time when income inequality and by the way, I've been criticized to for the salaries I've made in the past but at a time wage income inequality is so so intense, you know, how do you think about that? How do you think about the kind of wealth a lot of CEOs have a long wait it and the salaries that they're making just philosophically. Well, I think it's a it's a very complicated subject. But I do think that the pay Gap that exists in America more importantly the opportunity that people have in our country opportunities are not as abundant not as great they should be and I think that's becoming more and more real more and more profound more and more of a problem than I look. I don't want to get into details about how I've been compensated except to say that even quoting numbers sometimes as can be misleading. That's true. I get a salary and I get bonuses that are based on the performance of the company and I get stock that is based on the performance as a company and the stock when they're granted. They don't necessarily pay out in the manner which the headlines Mason's just put that all aside. I work in a business that has compensated CEOs very well and my compensation actually has been consistent with the conversation of others in the business. That I work in I happen to have run the largest most complex Media company and one could argue the most successful that said I am very very mindful of the fact that people today young people today. Don't feel they have the kind of opportunity that perhaps my generation of people felt they had whether the by the way whether there are people of color or whether just off people starting out that as they look ahead. They just don't have the optimism that I had that I would ultimately have access to if I if I performed well, I would ultimately have access to much more and that's a big problem and I think that's a it's a leadership problem in America. I think it's a it's an infrastructure problem in America meaning. I just think the system is not serving of people well anymore. What advice would you give young people Bob? You know, you have an eighteen-year-old son, you know, what would you say to people starting out who, you know have stars in their eyes off? with left to work at a company like Disney or being media of any kind, you know, look we're we've.

Is Bob Iger back as Disney CEO? He abruptly resigned from the helm in February

"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is Matt Felony and Matt. We've talked about Disney a lot lately because Disney is one of the most all companies are exposed to this this disaster from this pandemic and the apparent absence or inability of our leadership to the White House to figure out how to address it but Disney is as we've talked about hotels theme Parks Bob. Iger resigned abruptly. It seemed to many people including me as CEO staying on his executive chairman in February And you know this is just the strangest thing because there was just a an article that Ben Smith at the New York Times wrote in which he says that Bob Iger has now having said that he was handing the reins to Bob Capex the head of the theme parks making him. Ceo THAT BOB. Eiger has now basically resumed running Disney are. I don't know about you. I haven't seen any announcement of that or any kind of indication that there's been a change in leadership it seems important to me. It's a huge public company and a very difficult moment and and yet you know in the same column He. This author. Ben Smith says Bob Eiger has took his eye off the ball and was more worried about his legacy. But now he's back sort of like Hallelujah. I sort of feel like what really happened here because this narrative is making no sense to me and there's a lot of why whether Bob really planned that resignation as CEO and then came back. I'm there's nothing in this world that will make me believe that was planned. Yeah it's interesting because Disney clearly not clearly but some might say. Disney was responding to that article when they put out a release a few days. Later saying that Bob Shape back the other Bob Who was elevated to the CEO position in February is joining the board of directors? Which many had said was planned all along but I think the indication there was. You know the new Bob is actually in charge. It's not the old Bob. Even though the whole Bob seems to be you know giving his strong advice and being involved in these major decisions literally saying like I'm back he's like a signaling in an email or something to this journalist that he's back and I'm like what but go on. That's the question you do have someone who has decades of experience at the Walt Disney Company there in that executive chairman position and probably feels a little bit of remorse that he left this job right as the proverbial s hit the fan and a lot of people speculated. That either did know what was coming when he did that. You know at the time. He stepped down. The Shanghai Disney park had already closed due to the virus and many experts. Were saying. Listen this is a couple of weeks away from being a global pandemic. Even if the American government wasn't saying so at the time the experts were and had that information many thought that that timing was abrupt and out of nowhere and then all of a sudden were in the middle of the biggest threat to The Walt Disney Company. In perhaps ever so. I think there's probably a little bit of remorse going on there and I think there's probably a little bit of Bringing the guy with the expertise to actually manage this very very difficult time. How about giving some clarity at? I wonder if the board didn't say excuse me. What did you just do? And how is this Bob? Shaping supposed to run the theme parks because as far as I know still no successor named for that. I mean they're closed but that's not like that doesn't mean there's no duties associated with that you know how. How is this guy now running the whole whole company? I you know I'm old enough to remember. When Michael Eisner having had a very supine board for a very long time finally had gotten enough people upset that the board turned around and ultimately dismissed him. So it's not that the board cannot be awakened in in a situation like this. I just find this to be an incoherent narrative and I've never seen such credulous analysis. I guess people who who who in the observer the media world and had had mickey mouse sheets on their bed when they were growing up or something. Because I don't think any other company would be getting the benefit of the doubt that Disney has gotten. Yeah I guess we'll see as this pandemic causes more injury to the company. How big a role. Eiger will ultimately play. That's delanie former editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one. Thirty on the

Hollywood in Crisis: Producers, Theater Workers, Crew Members Brace for Coronavirus Fallout

"Around the globe. Hollywood is shutting down the production of scores of movies and TV series and that means a huge number of crew members are suddenly unemployed. Many of those who lost their jobs are assistance and writer's room studios in agencies who might not qualify for pay or health benefits during a shutdown. Liz Alpers TV writer and a former assistant. She's the creator of pay up. Hollywood and I asked her how her organization started half. Hollywood is an organization that started in response to a lot of these system abuses and low wages that were going on in the entertainment industry and our goal is to shine a light on some of the abuses and outdated practices that have been going on and do whatever we can to fix it and bring assistance and other support staff up to a living wage while also radically aiding the abuses they're still going on in the workplace. So let's talk about what's going on in the workplace right now. More than seventy TV and film shoots so far. Shut down but when you add it all together probably looking at thousands of people below the line who are suddenly out of work. Do you think that's about right? I think that number's rising every day. So some of those people might be full-time studio employees. They might be casting directors or maybe somebody who works in post production. But I'M GONNA have to assume the majority are freelancers. They go from show to show kind of the backbone of Hollywood's GIG economy how might that latter group B. added disadvantage if they're laid off especially for the freelancers who are not part of any of the unions. These are people who don't have any sort of Cushion to fall back on often. They're living hand to mouth often. They're being paid lower than anyone else on the crew and they are paying for their own health insurance. It's not provided through union. They're the ones who went stuff like this happens. They don't really have anywhere else to turn. There are also ten ninety nine employees Who Don't get to pay into unemployment insurance and so they don't receive unemployment benefits when you major shutdowns like this happened even though it's never really happened before in the event that movie is cancelled or TV. Show ends what they have in their bank account is all they have to survive on until their next GIG. I have read that some of the things that have been considered our pain. People compensation for a couple of weeks but based on a forty hour work week. But there's almost no such thing as a forty hour work week during production. A lot of the compensation is tied to overtime when people are working sixty eighty hour weeks so that extra pay which can be huge if that goes away even if you're getting a paycheck for a couple of weeks it would be a fraction of what you might typically take home correct. Yeah that's connected honestly. Most people who work in production are given sixty hour. Workweek guarantees so by saying that we will pay you for a forty hour workweek. You're taking away. Twenty guaranteed hours if you're making say minimum wage of fifteen dollars an hour. That's about an additional three hundred dollars a week that you're losing and that's a huge difference. That's the difference between being able to pay your rent. Pay Your bills. Maybe you know by your kids food. If that money goes away you have nowhere else to turn and especially in a situation like what we're facing now where everything's uncertain. No one knows when production's going to be coming back you're essentially digging a financial hole and you don't know when you can stop we're talking with Liz Alpert from pay up Hollywood about unemployment in Hollywood. Your organization has helped start a crowd funding campaign. What kind of people do you think are most in need of help? You know honestly I think across the board. There are just people in need of health. It's it's the workers if the production folk we're focusing on the support staff because that's who our organization is fighting for but beyond the support staff. There are there crew members. There are studio assistants. Are Office Workers? Who have been laid off without pay. So it's really everybody. And even though we started this go fund me we're still urging the studios in the employees in the entertainment industry to continue compensating all their employees. Because right now the employees are the ones that needs to be taken care of and the businesses profit because of the hard work of their people so right now they need to be stepping up and offering financial protection and support throughout this time of uncertainty. It also feels like this is a moment where income disparity in Hollywood and probably around the world could be brought into much sharper focus so we have studio heads and CEO's who make tens of millions of dollars. Disney's Bob Iger may nearly fifteen hundred times. What the average is the employee makes and whole foods which is owned by Amazon. The richest man in the world. Jeff bezos worth. A hundred billion dollars has been asking it staff to donate their time offer others who might be sick. And I'm wondering if we're to step back might be a conversation that could follow after this is all over. You know. This is a conversation that's been had for years so it's not that these conversations haven't happened. It's that the world hasn't taken notice yet. And so what I think needs to happen is for the public at large to understand that we are facing a severe income disparity where the people at the bottom ten to pay the most in situations like this and who are at the most at risk and get their situations never change. They're they're never give an ounce of relief instead. They're told that they simply have to work harder to dig themselves out of these financial debts that they've accrued.

Disney CEO Bob Iger Steps Aside; Bob Chapek Named New Head

"Let's move onto Disney some big news. Disney CEO BOB. Iger is stepping down as CEO but will remain executive chairman until twenty twenty one. Now Bob Chepe pack will take over. Chepe heck was the chairman of Disney parks experiences and products. He's been at Disney for a long time. Twenty seven years and we knew was going to step down. Yeah but still. This is a bit of a surprise in who the new CEO is. Yeah a lot of people thought you know be Bob. Eiger came out last year and he put something called the ride of a lifetime and he basically forecast that he was at the he was at the end of his time as CEO of Disney. The you know that he would be stepping down. It was not in the middle of the route of lifetime. This was kind of a a foreshadowing. The timing is really odd again. Given the corona virus and Disney Disney parks worldwide or about thirty percent of the revenue of the total profitability of the company. Like this is a big deal yet. A lot of people didn't realize you know the thought that the next leader from Would come maybe from Disney plus from the from the video side and they didn't they went and tapped a guy who's been at the benefit the parks. Yeah I happen to think. It's all a big conspiracy just to keep the Bob's in power feels like a snap. It feels like a snub to someone like Kevin Mayor. Who's been heading up Disney streaming service and Disney for so long has been saying streaming Disney placid future of Disney and to bring somebody in who has experienced running the parkside. The experience I've Disney is an interesting choice and the market doesn't seem to like it. But I I kind of do minus the Bob Bob thing strange but I think it's a good thing because as you said it's the parks in the experience that has been driving Disney throughout his entire history. And you don't want to put everything on streaming and ignore the extremely profitable important aspects. That is the Disney culture. That's created from experiences like parks the thing that's really interesting. And the Bob Eiger it. It's interesting to me that when Bob Eiger became the CEO. I don't know if you remember this but it was not a popular pick at all. It was not you know he was thought of as being the wrong guy coming from the wrong industry but what he has been. He's been a master capital alligator. Bought Pixar Lucasfilm's Fox Studios Marsa Marvel Marvel Tuck in acquisitions exactly exactly me transformational acquisitions. But people didn't realize you know people did not give him the credit in advance that that was what he was going to do. And I think one of the reasons that they went to the direction that they did is the thing that Bob Iger did that. People were surprised about is he really cracked the code on direct to consumer for Disney. Yeah and baby. Yoda and finally finally. We're going to see some BAYONA merchandise and other high not gonNA sell

"Disney CEO BOB. Iger is handing over the keys to the magic kingdom immediately. What I couldn't maybe it's not really. He's not going anywhere. I know he's not going to play with this beautiful succession. It's so ordered. It's just weird that it comes down to show. I'm leaving today but anyway I ever stepped down. I WanNa hear whether you've I wanna hear your your you actually no one. I want to hear some of your water cooler scuttle butt. Todd you give you my theory and go wild whatever. Go while. You're seeing that if anyone doesn't know this my son was yesterday afternoon. Bob Stepping down as Disney CEO. It's effective yesterday and replaced by Bob. Pick which has done a good job at theme parks. I guess he's been there a long time. Head of the company's Global Parks and unlike NBC. I was thinking. Wow he's not content creative guys a park that we think of it differently at comcast I think parks are important but it was almost like a secondary thing that we did comcast got when they took me started with garden. Graham Cast Disney started with good argue both NBC Universal and and Disney have been very good at coordinating those parts. Were you surprised the parks guy would run the entire creative operation of Stephanie's yes I I I don't know anyway. He will report directly to either. Who's going to stay on through his contract as Executive Chairman and basically the guy is going to report to the board so the his contract goes through the end of twenty twenty one he been. Ceo For fifteen years overseeing a tremendous growth at Disney acquisitions like Pixar Marvel Lucasfilm and most recently Fox's well as his shift to streaming with the launch of ESPN plus Disney plus in an interview exclusive interview on CNBC. I explained his decision was we looked at the businesses. We felt we have a great set of assets. We have a great strategy. What's next and what was next in terms of my own priorities is making sure that the creative pipeline and the company was really rich that all our creative engines were working extremely well and I wanted spend more and more of my time on that. I'm not sure I want to be. Ceo Virus either so with a theme park. Here's my theory of the case. Okay bye-bye signs a new employment contract as part of the transaction to buy Fox Rupert Murdoch stipulates that he has to be there. Okay Hey that him. By the way we went wild speculation that prevents him from running for president. And if you're really into wild speculation there are people out there that are suggesting somehow that this is some kind of entree to some kind of a Bloomberg Eiger of now. It's taking that off the table. That's crazy however he's still going to be in this place. Becky said it. He's not going anywhere he's effectively. The two bobs are basically running this place. Bob's reporting to him. So if Bob the new Bob about doesn't work out for whatever reason Bob Eiger is still there. He's also seen many transitions where people are sitting in waiting. Why wait it's possible? And I hope I for the new Bob Sake that it works out but if it doesn't and we've seen this story by the way at salesforce just happened yesterday where the CEO. Kevin Block didn't work out so could another Kevin in this case Kevin Mayor Ultimate step up? That's the person everybody expected was gonNA take the job to me. The big question mark this morning is if you are Kevin May or running Disney. Plus are you staying in this job because you thought potentially that you were getting the top job to me. Those are the issues that are being talked about around. The water

Bob Iger steps down as CEO of Disney

"There's news today that Bob Eiger is stepping down immediately as CEO of the Walt Disney company to make room for his successor and that is Bob JPEG who runs Disney's theme parks division last year Argo announced that he would step down when his contract expires at the end of twenty twenty one he will remain at the company as executive chairman and according to a Disney press release will direct the company's creative endeavors joining me to discuss the Disney news is Ben Fritz is the west coast bureau chief of the Wall Street journal he's also the author of the book the big picture the fight for the future of movies so Bob Eiger has mentioned several times that he was going to leave his current position what are we to make of the timing right now it's tough to tell exactly why what why the sudden change after all these years about what you're saying he was gonna leave it at night and then on saying he was gonna leave and delaying he delayed his retirement numerous times over the past decade and he's you know less than a year and a half into it his latest three year contract so it's kind of surprising in its day but on the other hand like it's very I gear to sort of do it do it all in secret and then all of a sudden announced to the world and in an unexpected way so his successor Bob che pack runs Disney's biggest business that is theme parks and consumer products what are we to make of his selection and were there other people who might have been competing for the job certainly our or other people like I think the biggest contender currently at Disney's Kevin Mayer who's running their new screening effort you know that's led by Disney plus he's piece insert top strategy except for the company for a long time you know with Kate Kate back amongst the current crop of executives that is a bit of a safe choice right he's running he's running sort of the traditional businesses like theme parks obviously business most associated with Disney as opposed to remaining which is certainly the future of Disney and you know by all accounts he pick is a very smart guy and a very competent guy but certainly is not so different sort of had like the the Christmas season as much of the house of a great public speaker of this you know Bob Iger's let's talk a little bit about what Bob Iger has done at the Walt Disney company I'm gonna name before deals Pixar's seven point four billion Marvel for billion Lucasfilm for billion and last year the Whopper twenty first century fox seventy one point three billion those are all kind of content movie TV deals what kind of studio is Bob Eiger leaving behind before we talk about the rest of the company I really mean highway I think anybody would have to say is sort of the most successful and tightly run major entertainment company in in America today because he's very focused on franchises they were ahead of the rest of Hollywood and it pops into their business on franchises as you said a lot of that to acquisitions of Pixar and Marvel and Star Wars and franchises are busy sort of at the heart of the movie business these days in an auger was somewhat ahead of the curve in realizing you can just keep selling something Netflix is that Disney would have to launch its own streaming service to compete just like Disney plus is already out there and it's you know is is certainly ahead of what we're seeing from his competitors like HBO maxim peacock which are still to come I think I think later this year so you have to say he's always been for media executive pretty ahead of the curve and and been a leader is not just Disney plus as part of the fox deal they got a portion of who lived in they bought out the rest of the portion of Hulu from Comcast so what does Disney focused on now in terms of taking on Netflix with streaming they have Disney plus they have who is that where a lot of their money and attention is going right now absolutely I mean the future of Disney as an intern came distributor is Disney plus Hulu and ESPN plus right those are it's three major streaming services and traditional TV businesses being shrunk rapidly that's for Disney's putting all its efforts and a lot of films such as going there as well so that if that is the future of Disney but yet the one business they have it certainly not shrinking is the one that's cheapest and overseeing which is part of the consumer products right while all traditional entertainment is being disrupted people still love to go to theme parks and Disney theme parks are more successful than ever these days I want to buy the toys as well so that's sort of the more traditional side of the business that is not being transformed by digital technology I think you can make the argument that theme parks have what's known in business as a wide moat there not a lot of competitors to theme parks but there is something called the corona virus and there are problems that theme parks and cruise lines of which Disney has a cruise line are also facing pressure so what is that business look like going forward and what does it tell us about how Disney values theme parks that Bob Chapek will be running the whole company well listen I think in the short run it's not a great moment to be running theme parks in Shanghai and Hong Kong is Disney does and to have cruise ships so that businesses under pressure right now but I you know presuming I hope we do get the fire under control I think everybody within these businesses will continue to be successful if they have been and you know popped out to tech has by all accounts and done a very good job running those businesses and he generated a lot of profit for the people to the company if that's that you set up for a lot of the revenue and profits comments you know streaming is the future of streaming is a money losing business for now and I think you know with disappointment Disney's kind of saying yes stream is important part of our future but Disney is still a company that that it that it's hard to it's about the experiences people have in our theme parks Bob I will leave a great track record I think the Disney company is a very impressive guy in person a great public speaker there's been some speculation about him running for political office do you think that's potentially part of his future anything's possible right I think you know as he's publicly said that he toyed with the idea of running for president this year and he decided it wasn't right for him but he's you know very politically active Democrat I would not be surprised if he's hoping that you know if the next president is a Democrat that he might you know have some kind of a role in it in an administration I think that's something he would probably love to do it with fifteen profile very well well I'm gonna assume he's not jumping in this year it feels like we really don't need another billionaire and the rice then Fred's is the west coast bureau chief for the

What I what I do though is I find myself because also a lot written about food lately whenever I see an article about great pizza in a city I save it so the most recent one was a New Yorker article which is about the slice renaissance in New York meaning pizza by the slice it appeared maybe two or three weeks ago? Oh in New York. So there's a they listed a place called norms in downtown Brooklyn that I'm destined to try out this holiday vacation but So I guess Renaissance of Pizza by the slice. How do you when you find something like that at this New Yorker article? How do you save it? What does the actual process of saving something like that? I'd say I copy a la- I I read the New Yorker On its APP. I copy a link or I copy the whole article and I put it on email and I send ascended to myself so I literally sent A. I've shared the slice renaissance with you from the New Yorker. We're the link that said something. Something like Paulie Gee's pizza by the slice or something like that and that sits in that.

Pizza will come in and the two of the three of us on Friday or Saturday. We'll put our our cold weather weather coats on and had into the cold. New York air looking for a good slice of pizza sounds perfect so much more appealing than than like warm warm and sticky plus pizza. The cold actually really lends something to be the best pizza in Austin but I don't remember from aware that this is a pretty there's a decent selection I mean it is a food town Do you limit yourself to. Do you have a hard cut off at one slice or do you allow yourself to let loose. What's loose if I'm sitting down?

It's very flattering. A very flattering term to have applied to us while keeping US conveniently separated from the rest of the student population. But it was. Yeah fascinate time. This was this was not to digress too far but but this was back when the I'm sure you remember these days the when the bicycles I mean. The Sea of bicycles was still a phenomenon and Remember by late nineties actually. Yeah I was there in ninety six and was still a when As a as a poor student we would buy these long Green People's Liberation Army jackets for the winter and and What a trip? Yeah I remember most than about China then was yet the bicycles would be on the top of the list.

He he said no not at all just sometimes a couple of really big pros. are far outweigh many many cons which I thought was quite interesting. He was able to look at this list and not count sheer number of items. But tally up the kind of the relative importance or lack thereof of the items uh-huh and that led to Im- saying something like let's keep the door open. We should continue to talk about this. What do we need to do next? And that led to my saying I think I need to visit Pixar. I think one of the way I put it see. What's under the hood suggesting that I look under ticket really close? Look at the engine. That was pixar the see whether it could get at whether the value was there For us to buy and some of the cons that Steve Put on this board were seemingly so strong that you couldn't possibly over over overturn them or outweigh them or counterbalance him in the sense. That somewhere Disney's culture world destroy Pixar. Your Board will never let you do it. And Ah Distraction will kill pictures. Creativity all caps. Thank you by the way you're quoting from my book. I don't have it in front of me. But yes those were all things that he said of those three but by the way. I think we both felt that it was not a foregone conclusion that the Disney board with with with let's do this but that was not the biggest deterrent. At least not that day. He had really really really a strong feelings about the culture of Pixar and the need to protect and preserve it and his experience with Disney while it might have been good at one point had turned horribly bad and he viewed Disney as an overly bureaucratic craddock overly process oriented not overly collaborative culture and he thought that if we owned Pixar that type of culture would obliterate the culture that was at Pixar and he felt the pixar culture was was more responsible for their creative success than any one thing or any one person and so and this actually played out in great detail as the negotiation were on his desire to make sure that even in a in a full-blown sale to Disney the Disney would.

"Doubt. We will many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we'll have to heed their wishes in that regard right now were, were watching very carefully. These also likely to be challenged in the courts, and that could delay it and we're being, we're being careful and cautious about it. But if it becomes law, I don't see how it's practical, I continue to shoot their Disney CEO, Bob Iger on in a on the abortion Bill there in Georgia. This is just something that we've become accustomed to as conservatives that I don't think we should have to be accustomed to anymore. I am I am sick of all of us just assuming. Oh corporate. America is going to lash out at the right and never lash out at the left. I mean, Disney is supposed to be of great American company. That's a huge company control the tremendous amount of contents bought up all kinds of stuff recently, I know. But if it's a great American company, shouldn't represent the American people, and their wishes or at least shouldn't it be respectful of the American people in their wishes not half of the American people. And when you're talking about some of these abortion extremists it's much much, much less than half, the, the true left. I mean, the, the Planned Parenthood version of what the law should be when it comes to abortion is supported really by only about fifteen to twenty percent of the country. It's. The hard left view of things. It is the ideologically rigid progressive approach, and it's very doctrinaire. It's very based in an a leftist orthodoxy. But why is it just the assumption that Bob Iger is going to threaten the state of Georgia for doing what it's completely within its rights to do passing a state law and say that they're going to take business away? So they're gonna punish people that are going to work on different sets and cameramen and craftsmen and key grip, and all these things that you do with these at these film places. I can't think of all the jobs, you're going to punish them because you have a bunch of progressive ideologues. Not just in your audience. But clearly in the company that's where this, that's where the rubber really meets the road. All this is that the C suite at so many major corporations is full of people who are left. Wing ideologues. And they don't have any problem inflicting their beliefs on other people, and, and punishing people who don't agree with them. And I remember, for example. Being told look, I'll even tell you where it was CNN. I remember being told by CNN executive who was involved in the hiring of people at CNN that he would would not only oppose everything in his power to sink the chances of anyone who was going to work at CNN on air who was not in favor of gay marriage. Now, whatever you think about gay marriage, and all the rest of it just thinking about that for a moment, though. You and that was years ago that was before. I was it before, and it was right after Oberg Oberg fell the decisions ring court decision. But he's like, if you cannot this guy was like you will not be able to work there. He will do everything he can stop you. They went after Brendan Ike from Mozilla for his previous support years ago, Brennan of Moselle, the CEO, and founder of Mozilla was chased out of his corporate position by other people at his company and by the media. Because he was supporting in California traditional marriage, the, at the exact same time that Barack Obama was running the traditional marriage candidate. But the left always makes exceptions for people on their side who are doing the head fake, or who, who are a Trojan horse or who, who abandoned the position as soon as they're in power. They're okay with that. In fact, they like that they encourage that, that kind of dissembling kind of intellectual dishonesty, I'm going to say this until I get into power then do something else. But we have to we have to fight back against this. This should not be something what Bob Iger saying here is that Disney takes a political position as a company against conservatives and this should not be okay. This should not be something that goes without pushback and without organized dare I say resistance. This is also just culturally on the left. They they're very comfortable doing this. They're very comfortable making examples of people for political reasons that have nothing to do with the company's business that have nothing to do with whether or not someone is, is going to be a good customer of theirs. Just like the left will boycott it is known. It is known throughout the media industry. That leftists can say all kinds of crazy stuff, and they'll still get blue chip, very, very wealthy sponsors. They'll, they'll get the coke Mercedes mcdonagh. Holds, etc. But on the right. Oh, you're all you're always put on notice. You know, if you step out of line, if you say something, that's a little too, conservative. If you, you know if you, you don't dance to the tune of the leftists tell you too. You may find yourself getting all your sponsors, pull the fact that you might find yourself getting your Bank account, pull, you know, they may say sorry, you know, we're going to give you your money back, whatever. But you, you can't do use our banking services. They obviously will go after people for the platform for the platforms, they use as well. They want they want they want speech police for the left or the left wants to be the speech police on Facebook on YouTube on Twitter. They know how powerful these things are for those say, oh, book those platforms are isn't it overblown. No, the future generations. The, the cable news, environment is going to go away, as we know it they'll still be shows and I mean, maybe the networks will still exist, but you're going to be watching digitally. You're going to be watching an ala carte and increasingly the major social platforms are going to be determining. They already are largely determining the new cycle, but they're going to be almost entirely deciding what people see tremendous power in the left wants to use that power to censor. They wanna use that power to push ideas that they not only think are correct, but those who don't hold those ideas aren't worth listening to. They are to be silenced. They ought to be silenced, and it's, it's a constant frustration for me. That we just, you know, half the country, roughly speaking is Republican conservative, or, and we don't we don't try to even the score. We don't try to hold them to account. We let them get away with this crap with this nonsense of politicizing corporate America politicizing sports. It's always a one way street. We take we take the abuse. I don't know what it what it will require for us to decide that enough is enough. Maybe we do have to fight fire with fire. Maybe some really painful boycotts of some companies is the only way to get them to stop this stuff. You want to know how bias they are about things like abortion. I mean, the, the media is the praetorian guard of abortion for nine months of pregnancy. And even after the pregnancy on demand for any reason or no reason the media is boomers in the media, who unfortunately control the news media, the boomer generation of liberals in the media are the abortion radicals. More so than any other generation, and these boomer abortion, radicals, do not want, especially in the waning years of their careers, to have a country that by its actions. And by the laws that it passes. And by the polls that are taking repudiates abortion, as a women's rights issue and treats it as a life issue. And that's how you have someone. Like, for example, Alison camera all Cammarata over at CNN who makes a little just a little slip here little slip at tells you a lot, doesn't it play eighteen. Issue here. Lots of families do have to make that decision based on the single characteristic of finding out that their children that their fetus has a severe abnormality. Oh, gosh. I said, children, I've been fetus. She had it right. The first time. Fetuses child. That's what it is. This is a child, but they know they have to control the language than they have to use words that have skewer, what's really happening. They cannot discuss openly, clearly, honestly, what these abortion procedures involve and they know that they're their paymasters from the people that determined who in the mainstream media is going to get these big fat paychecks and be important famous. They're all they're all pro choice. They're all pro choice, although a lot of them. So that's why Cammarata had to catch yourself there right away. But it's time we, it's time we fight back.

Yeah, that's that's going to be great for that. Can't be right flicks is probably not too happy about this. Well, here's here's here. My takeaways the first thing, obviously, let me speak to what Alexis was pointing out the interface, which is how we're going to interact with it is beautiful. It looks easy. It's pleasing to the eye. So Bravo to that. I think it's smart to follow the net. Flicks. Model? Yeah. Don't be prime. That's. I don't like to fed up either know who in prime their their setup suck monkey. But I mean, it just horrible. It's not intuitive. It's not easy. It's clunky. Right. Okay. The thing that I thought Bob Iger, I could hump your left leg. Bob. The big wicked Disney is. They their offerings at launch make apple look laughable. And I love I love apple and I get their streaming service. But the amount of original programming that Disney already has in the can or will offer on the day. It launches is extraordinary delbra everyone do the yard. I thought about this. If you have kids boom, and this is the streaming service for you..
