I think Iger is an interesting individual and has a lot of smart ideas, but there are definitely issues he can be challenged on, and unfortunately, this was one soft interview. Maria Bartiromo could have asked tougher questions instead of simply praising the CEO after every answer.

Really embarassing, to be honest. Then again, CNBC probably doesn't have much choice. If it wants ratings, it needs CEOs, especially one that is more well-known and liked as Iger is.

She did ask one interesting question: where is the growth going to come from? Iger mentioned international. My question on that point: if more and more money comes from overseas, do we get affected by that repatriation tax issue, which I do not fully understand? In other words, will the company refuse to bring the money back because it doesn't want to pay the tax, thus limiting the quality of our dividend increases in the future?
