Forbes reports on Roy Disney


In the March 15 issue of Forbes, Los Angeles bureau manager Seth Lubove asks of Roy E. Disney and Stanley Gold, "so who are these guys--really?" He goes on to report that while Roy has complained about Michael Eisner taking the Disney brand away from wholesome family entertainment, the nephew of Walt Disney owns a stake in one of the world's largest condom makers. Lubove also points out that Southern California Senior Life magazine ran a recent cover screed calling on readers to help oust Eisner without disclosing that Roy Disney had acquired the publication.
