Emmy Advanced Media – Television Business News: Cuban Likes Obesity
Shelly Palmer tells us about Mark Cuban calling out Disney’s Preston Padden in obvious over exaggeration..
From the post:
There arenâ€™t many of us who could call bulls__t on Preston Paddenâ€“at least not in front of a room full of press and politicos. However, Mark Cuban, CEO of HDNet and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, did it twice in 10 minutes at the Consumer Electronics Associationâ€™s 2006 Entertainment Policy Summit in Washington, D.C. Preston Padden, executive vice president-government relations, The Walt Disney Company, was trying to tell the audience that there had been over six million illegal downloads of Disneyâ€™s animated hit movie, â€œThe Incredibles.â€ Mark wasnâ€™t buying it. â€œI call bulls__t!â€ he said, with no small degree of effervescence in his voice. â€œMaybe if you said â€˜Star Wars,â€™ but â€˜The Incrediblesâ€™? No way!!!â€
