Ted Turner’s Son: CNN So Far Left, ‘I Have a Hard Time Watching’


Ted Turner’s son, Teddy, recently appeared on the Steve Malzberg show for a visit and when the topic turned to CNN, his dad’s cable TV network, he didn’t hold back. The network is “pretty much to the left,” Teddy Turner said.

The Turner scion then went on to note that because CNN is so far left, “I have a hard time watching them a lot of times.”

Teddy Turner also says he once warned the executives at CNN that the, “left is not the way to go in talk radio or in talk TV because that’s not who’s listening.”

(The segment is about 7:40 into the show.)

The full transcript of the segment can be seen at Newsbusters.

Deutschland Deja Vu: The Baader Meinhof Complex

Watching The Baader Meinhof Complex’s titular Teutonic terrorist gang in action on the small screen, I was struck by déjà vu of it all. A small but growing band of radicals with a penchant for street theater, wishing to smash capitalism and destroy the system from within, led by a fanatical, brawling leader, with at least one articulate well-bred intellectual within the inner circle. Starting off by blowing up small, bourgeois shops. Eventually hooking up with sympathetic allies in the Middle East. Then killing American soldiers. And when finally cornered, going out in a Gotterdammerung of mass suicide rather than face punishment from their captors. That’s never happened in Germany before
