Before reading Marc Graser‘s Variety story about Walt Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook being suddenly job-less, I knew it wouldn’t contain the slightest hint or motive or industry rumble as to why. Then I clicked over to Nikki Finke and her report that a Disney insider has confided that “Cook himself is telling Hollywood tonight” that he was “fired.” And that’s the way it tends to work. Variety delivers the boilerplate; Finke provides the sizzle.
