Saban and Jobs are/were unpleasant in a sense and unethical in how they try/tried to achieve advantages over their opposition, but Edison took these personalities and forced them to criminal levels. Saban nor Jobs had anyone or anything killed and framed up in a manner to sabotage their opposition. Neither Saban nor Jobs hired hit men to travel across the country to beat or kill those who defied his authority. 

I know I sound whiney through these posts, but I just get irritated by the high praise of a man who forced his way into history by unethical means.

Everyone, please stop boosting the legend of Thomas Edison. He was a tyrant who tried to monopolize everything that he filled a patent out for. And he would use mafia-like tactics to ensure that his way was the only one people could use. He didn't even really invent the lightbulb. He hired a team and filled out the patents under his name and when people, like his best man, Nikolai Tesla, tried to seek more credit, Edison would fire them and blackball them.
