In a move terrifying many people who work in media, Disney has solidified a deal to acquire 21st Century Fox. It cost them $52.4 billion, and may lead to thousands of people getting laid off. Disney owns an enormous number of media properties, and have been trying to control more and more, even including the voice of critics. They were recently boycotted for attempting to freeze out the L.A. Times after receiving an unfavorable review.
It's unclear exactly what will happen with Disney tightening its control over media outlets, but whatever it is, The Simpsons already did it.
They even predicted this merger as far back as 1998.
