1. Disney is good at creating fantasy, so Fox "News" would fit right in!

3. I thought that there had to be an arms-length in dealings like this to avoid insider trading?

so, tRUMP's going to be guilty of insider trading via his sons/son-in-law? Just wait and see..,

4. Alas, no "Fox and Friends" with Mickey, Daisy, and Donald.

Fox is keeping control of their own fantasy channel. Too bad -- I wanted to see how long Donald would get away with not wearing pants.

5. Who'd want a toxic turd like Faux anyway

The audience, though sizable, is the very bottom of the barrel - not much interest to quality advertisers.

6. If the deal was they had to take Fox News...

....Disney would probably turn it down. That asset is toxic. You could alienate customers and who knows how much legal lawsuits you could be opening yourself up to.

Disney wants the IP's and Libraries...and that's about it. Their plan to launch its own version of Netflix wasn't that much of a threat...but with this acquisition, now they have they do. Netflix is going to lose a good chunk of content.

9. They gain controlling interest of Hulu as well

So they’ll actually have TWO rival competitors at the same time.
