Variety reports that 73% of participants in the Disney 401(k) plan voted against retainnig CEO Michael Eisner on the Disney board. The results are widely viewed as a no-confidence vote for Eisner's leadership of the company that's recently given us Home on the Range and The Alamo.

A Disney spokeman claims that this data is being misused. "This is another blatant distortion and manipulation of data in an attempt to continue to mislead Disney shareholders," he said.
