    Ted Turner Reflects on Bailouts, the Media, and Iran

    In a First on Fox Business interview, I had the chance to sit down with Ted Turner, founder of CNN, the legend behind Turner Broadcasting which eventually merged with Time Warner, then AOL, owner of the Atlanta Braves, and of course, the former husband of Jane Fonda. There have been many books written about Ted Turner, but never one written by Ted Turner until now. His book “Call Me Ted” is on the New York Times bestseller list, and he’s often called the “Mouth of the South.” He is never one to hold back an opinion, but when I first asked him what he thought about the bailouts of auto and financial companies, his humble response surprised me!

    Here you go:



I agree with Ted regsarding his comment saying that the bailouts should not have occured. Ted stated that he lost seven billion. Surely he should be entitled to a bail out but I have not seen his corporate jet parked in the D.C. area and I doubt if we will. I'm in favor of the use of alternate energy sources just as soon a the consumer can ourchase cars at an affordable price that run efficiently on those types of fuels. Good to see Ted again without Jane.
