Media mogul Ted Turner is 73 years old today. He created the network CNN which got the world addicted to hearing the same old “news” stories over and over again, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. I met him when he was married to actress Jane Fonda and I had a great experience meeting the power couple. Jane’s autobiography has some very interesting stories about Ted’s behavior and it’s not a surprise they didn’t stay together. We’ll be right back after this commercial break.
Also born today: talk show hosts Larry King and Dick Cavett and actresses Meg Ryan and Jodie Foster. When will Jodie make headlines for telling the world a news story we already know all about?
