D-I-S … N-E-Y: B-U-L-L-Y


The Happiest Corporation on Earth is looking a little nasty these days. A jury has ruled unanimously that the Walt Disney Company bullied an executive who was dying of AIDS into forfeiting millions of dollars in benefits, according to E! ONLINE.

Disney claimed that Robert Jahn, who died in 1994, willingly gave up $2.3 million in unpaid stock options, life insurance and deferred bonuses to avoid being fired for taking kickbacks. They said he confessed to his crime just before his death, but jurors didn’t believe that fairy tale. Lawyers for Jahn’s estate denied he ever swiped a dime, and said he was too sick to fight the corporate giant.

A US district judge will decide how much Disney should pay Jahn’s estate.

NOW IS NO TIME TO QUIT

It's been a tough several weeks for those who care about the truth: Congress, the FBI, and the judiciary are seemingly more concerned with providing cover for a foregone conclusion than with uncovering facts.

But we also saw something incredibly powerful: that truth-tellers don't quit, and that speaking up is contagious. I hope you'll read why, even now, we believe the truth will prevail—and why we aren't giving up on our goal of raising $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall, even though there's a long way to go to get there. Please help close the gap with a tax-deductible donation today.
