    All I can say is that SOMEBODY must be watching them or those crappy 'Made For TV' trinkets would have been gone years ago.

    I always feel sorry for the media corporations. While it's hard to pin down the growth in profits from year-to-year, a typical annual report like Disney's is always informative:
    In Disney's case, the Media Networks segment profits increased 30% in two years.

    The Hollywood Reporter is owned by Guggenheim Partners, LLC. From Wikipedia:
    It's hard to burrow down into these folks financial interests. But they have significant financial interests associated with corporate media business.

    Go get 'um, Charlie!

    So what? Does he care? He's richer than all of us and even if you like him he keeps the fight going so we are not all rolled over.

    Dear Shareholders,
    Fiscal 2012 was an exciting year of record performance, as well as innovation and creativity, at The Walt Disney Company. For the second year in a row Disney achieved record net income, revenue, and earnings per share. In fiscal 2012, net income for our shareholders was a record $5.7 billion, an increase of 18% over last year, and revenue was a record $42.3 billion, up 3% from last year. Diluted earnings per share increased 24% to a record $3.13....

    I wonder what the letter to the employees said?

    "Dear valued employees: profits are down, look forward to negative wage 'adjustments' and furloughs.

    Work harder.

    A letter to Disney employees? Perhaps the one at the end of 2013 would note the losses from their channels being off of DISH Network for a month or two and a promise that 2014 would be better.

    Now we know what the letter to Disney employees said: "You're downsized!" From Variety Layoffs Underway at Disney:
    And according to The Hollywood Reporter:
    Yes, Disney stock hits high, Disney's CEO Bob Iger lays off employees, and according to this thread Charlie Ergin is the most hated man in Hollywood
