    I have nothing against Bush bashing, if it's done for the right reasons. But Disney would have done better to pick someone who knows how to make documentaries.

    Should we just boycott Disneyland and World, or any Disney owned Corp. or subsidiary of Disney? Here's a little list as of 1997 (may be more or less now) but it'll give you a general idea.

    The Disney Family Tree

    (Posted 6-27-97; Updated 10-3-97)




    The Walt Disney Company is one of the largest media and entertainment companies in the world and is, for all practical purposes, two companies in one with the acquisition of Capital Cities/ABC.

    The following information traces the ownership of various enterprises which reportedly answer to the Disney Company through various divisions and subsidiaries of Disney and ABC/Capital Cities.

    The companies on this list were compiled from documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by Disney and Capital Cities/ABC and from the 1995 edition of the Directory of Corporate Affiliations.

    This list is provided as a public service only. We are unable to vouch for the complete accuracy of the list as some corporations may have been sold or otherwise liquidated out of the Disney Company portfolio.

    I hope, after viewing this list, no one actually thinks that they really get unbiased reporting from any major outlet, or even that many major newsworthy incidents are ever reported.
