LOS ANGELES (AP) — In response to a Los Angeles Times series about the relationship between the Walt Disney Co. and the city of Anaheim, the company is barring the paper from advance screenings of its films.
The editors of the Times said Friday that Disney declined access for the paper’s holiday film preview citing “unfair coverage” of its business ties with Anaheim. Upcoming Disney films include “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”READ MORE: Berkeley Couple Seeks Answers After Safe Containing $500K In Valuables Stolen From Their Home
