So That's Why Disney is Meeting in Philadelphia. . .
In a comment on my previous post, I wrote that it'd be in Eisner's best interest to fight off the bid made by Comcast for Disney. I don't know telecommunications or economics, but I'd guess Eisner got himself into a little trap. The rumor that was swirling for the past several months (which I was unaware of) is that Eisner was trying to work a deal between Comcast and Disney. Something that would allow him to leave Disney with adolation and praise, which Eisner hasn't recieved in quite a while now.
However, it seems to have backfired, for now the shareholders now have a second way to push Eisner to the curb.
