Abstract:

For more than seventy years, the Walt Disney Company has been an icon of wholesome family entertainment. Now Disney is under attack by family and religious organizations. Are the complaints hysterical censorship, or has Disney really lost its way? Investigative journalists Peter Schweizer and Rochelle Schweizer set out to find the answer. Exclusive interviews with Disney employees, internal corporate documents, and law enforcement records reveal a story of a great American institution corrupted by greed and perverted by the lust for power - and even more bizarre vices. The Schweizers reveal: how Walt Disney put safety first, but the current management allows Disney World to have an injury rate twice the industry average - for money; how Disney became a partner in the nation's largest pay-per-view pornography distributor; Disney World's rampant pedophile and sexual abuser problem - and how the company prefers cover-ups to simple and inexpensive solutions; the weird message Disney sends when employees are caught peeping on - even filming - coworkers and guests in their dressing room; how Disney thwarts the efforts of local law enforcement at its theme parks; and how Disney licensees have been repeatedly charged with violating federal child labor laws.
