Ted Turner has one main problem with the current state of CNN, the cable news network he founded.
Turner said he doesn’t keep up much with the news anymore but still occasionally watches the network he started nearly four decades ago. He talked about it in an interview with Ted Koppel scheduled to air this weekend on “CBS Sunday Morning.”
According to Turner, CNN’s main problem is too much politics.
“I think they’re stickin’ with politics a little too much,” Turner tells Koppel. “They — they’d do better to have — a more balanced — agenda. But that’s, you know, just one person’s opinion.”
Turner, 79, hasn’t had anything to do with CNN for years. In the interview he also discusses his battle with Lewy body dementia, which causes exhaustion and forgetfulness.
