Wow. This One is Seemingly Out of Left Field: TV Legend Norman Lear, Who Gave us ‘Maude,’ ‘All in the Family’ and ‘The Jeffersons,’ Says He Has Empathy for Balloon Boy Dad Richard Heene

Oct 22, 2009  •  Post A Comment

In a short commentary on the Huffington Post, the creator of classic TV sitcom fare such as “All in the Family,” blames CNN, MSNBC, Fox, NBC, ABC and CBS for “creating a climate that mistakes entertainment for news to an extent that it all but seduces a Richard and Mayumi Heene into believing they are — even if what they dream up to qualify is a hoax — entitled to their 15 minutes.”

Thus, Lear concludes in the commentary, "…I have some empathy for Balloon Boy’s Dad."
