Well, to clarify I do actually know why. (It was more of a rhetorical question. ) I just view this direction as much more oriented towards short-term profits rather than longevity. But it's true that nearly all companies operate this way now. It's about making the stockholders profits, even if it eventually damages the company, the quality of the product, etc. Disney is just doing what everyone else is. I think there are some of us who would have liked to believe otherwise.
