More on the Right-Wing Disney

Posted by libhom Wednesday, January 31, 2007

The Christian Right has worked hard to paint Disney as a “liberal” company, despite the facts to the contrary. Disney was the last studio to grant same-sex partner benefits, and then only out of fear that they would lose queer employees they depended on to more enlightened studios. The Christian extremists condemn Disney for Gay Nights at Disneyland and Disney World even though Disney rudely refuses to recognize the unofficial and profitable events. Disney also broadcasted the propagandadrama, “The Path to 9/11” on its ABC television network, falsely claiming the show was based on the 9/11 Commission Report.

In a previous posting of mine, What if Disney Imposed Its Right-Wing Agenda on Its Cartoon Characters?, even a liberal commenter mistakenly opined that Disney was liberal.

If you want another example of Disney's rightist ideology, look at its talk radio stations. They are nutty right-wing. One of them, KSFO in San Francisco, has gone far enough to generate a major backlash. A show hosted by Melanie Rogers has been caught advocating (sometimes as quasi-jokes) individual murder, mass murder, and torture of people right-wingers dislike.

The blog which brought this to the attention of the public, Spocko's Brain, was shut down temporarily by Disney/ABC's legal threats for using audio clips as evidence of the statements being made on the show and for letting advertisers know what kind of radio programming surrounds their happy, happy commercials. The blog went back up, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation has sent a letter reminding Disney/ABC about the blog's legal rights under fair use.

If Disney is such a “liberal” company, then why is it broadcasting so much rightist propaganda. The Christian Right is wrong as usual.
