More trouble for Mickey the Great and Terrible. Kevin Mayer, the head of Disney streaming and the hero of the hour so far as the stockholders were concerned has jumped ship.
Mayer was the guy that the shareholders wanted as CEO. Iger of course wanted Mini-Bob in that slot on the grounds that Chapek will do whatever Iger tells him to do.
Since Mayer didn’t get the job as Disney CEO he accepted the appointment as TikTok’s CEO. This is not going to go over well at the Q3 call, which was already shaping up to be bad in a legendary way. Since it looks like the Parks division. Which is to say Chapek’s former division is likely to get sued for securities fraud.
There are now calls to Cancel Indiegogo. Reasons for this.
One; it’s where the Comic’s Gate guys go for funding and they get it.
Two; Kickstarter is circling the drain as being one of the few businesses that actually went broke for going Woke.
The fact that Indiegogo is now being championed as a hero of free speech, while being vilified as the funder of Alt Right Nazis is nothing short of hilarious if you know the inside story of how it got there.
Mister Plinkett returns to gut Picard.
There is one part in here that I completely agree with. Never let actors have any say on the creative side of things. They are just too narcissistic to be genuinely creative. The Picard that people saw on the aforementioned series doesn’t resemble the intellectual Sigma male that commanded the Enterprise in STNG.
Basically they got Patrick Stewart onboard by letting him be a socialist drama-queen spouting off randomly about whatever was crossing his senile mind this week.

I completely agree with everything he has to say on this subject which neatly sabotages my plans to do a Cataline RE:Views on it.
Okay, I’m done here.
