Should Disney Dump ABC?

Here's an intriguing idea that Disney might consider selling off the ABC network.

The reality in the broadcast media today is that network television properties are assets of ever-diminishing promise. Cable is where it's at. Network business models reek of a dependence on advertising revenue, a shaky proposition in the digital age. Cable's subscription-oriented structure looks much more appealing.

This idea has been around for a few years, and certainly been mentioned louder the past couple of years when ABC hasn't been doing that well.

So, if ABC gets sold and no longer becomes a part of Disney, is Barbara Walters still considered as a "Disney Legend"? After all, she got the award for her work at ABC. :)
