Wait until you find out that Disney movies aren't made by Walt Disney

He’s been dead since 1966 clearly he still makes all the movies.

What do you think people think 20th century fox movies are made by a fox?

Seems like a list of things that others falsely attributed solely to him, rather than him taking credit.

Do a little research, he has a poor reputation today. People know he exaggerated stole and lied. If that's what motivates you, so be it.

His name on the patents put the lie to “other people falsely attributed them” to his greedy, theiving a$$…

Could you just admit you're wrong and move on instead of engaging in bad-faith BS that makes you look stupid? Guy was an idea stealer, that's not debatable.

It’s certainly not, but there is nuance there the general public struggles to understand. Edison definitely had a degree of acumen himself and was skilled at implementing projects, notably electrical lighting. Shame he couldn’t get past his own greed to work in good faith with tesla, who knew AC was superior to DC

I really didn't expect that tbh. That makes him better than the modern one.

I'm sorry you had to find out your idol was a bad dude this way. Best to keep an open mind though, it's what Edison would have wanted.
