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.
