I give him an E. Hastings sounded more like a politician than a CEO. He didn't answer most of the questions and refused to talk about numbers (which he has always seemed to be so happy to do in the past). He didn't have anything good to say, so he said squat. Not a very good harbinger for things to come.
The guy was fine, i would give him an average grade, a C. If he hasn't watched his own show, why would you want him to be CEO. So he's either lying or clueless. My guess is that with how the stock is being run, he's clueless.
The guy is completely unfocused. DVD new movies, streaming old TV shows, rapid international expansion, original content at huge premiums. just a charlatan peddling a dead company that has no possibility of ever fulffilling the market valuation with profits
