Rich Ross Steps Down As Disney Studios Head

{Thanks to Gene for the link to this story}

Well, he didn't last long, did he? After the poor performance of the Walt Disney Studios since he took over, and culminating with the embarrassing flop of "John Carter", Rich Ross has stepped down as the head of the Walt Disney Studios.
Ross, the former head of Disney Channels Worldwide, had taken over for then-studio chair Dick Cook just two and a half years ago with a mission to cut costs and develop new hits.
But the losses continued under Ross despite major restructuring efforts.
I wonder if somewhere, Dick Cook is smiling and saying "it's not that easy, is it?".
So who else did they pushed out that they should have kept?
