The next great sucking sound you hear from L.A. won't be the fires drawing air. They'll be the jobs moving from the Fox lot to the Disney octopus. I would imagine the West LA production lot will survive. It had better, or L.A. implodes. A lot of the jobs won't, though.

Murdochs retain power and now have additional tentacles into Disney. They shed some assets that were losing to Internet streaming. There is undoubtedly jubilation in the Murdoch vineyard.

I don't think this involves Faux News. Rupert would never sell his propaganda arm, and besides it has a guaranteed audience of scared right wing whites with delusions about returning to an era that never existed. Besides, since Disney owns ABC lock stock and barrel, it would be competing with itself.

It's UUUUUUUUUGE for The Industry. It's always tight anyway, and this eliminates a major studio from the pitch wars. Bets are being taken on how many years before everyone works for Disney, Comcast, Amazon, or Google.
