The Hollywood Reporter has published an extensive interview with Ted Turner. In one section of the interview, after saying the Tea Party is “mean spirited” (a man who knows how to spot Nazis at Fox News can be trusted to root out overexaggeration wherever it exists), Turner expressed his frustrations with the Tea Party’s denial of settled science:
“It’s so heartbreaking to have [them] say that global warming is a hoax,” Turner says in a new Hollywood Reporter profile.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, he admits to driving a Prius and supporting President Obama.
Digging a little deeper into the Hollywood Reporter story, after reading about Turner’s environmentally friendly Prius and global warming concerns, we find this gem that makes Al Gore look like a buck private in the Army of Hypocrisy:
He may lack the ebullience of his earlier years, yet Turner shuttles endlessly among his 28 properties — 14 of them ranches with 55,000 bison — traveling hundreds of thousands of miles per year on his private Challenger jet.
Not exactly Ed Begley, Jr., is he? Maybe Turner could convince more people that global warming is a grave threat to humanity if he would behave as if he believes it. But the joke’s on the rest of us, because when global warming turns everybody into cannibals, Ted Turner will be 35,000 feet off the ground.
Finally, the story features a little bit about Turner’s television viewing habits:
He only watches CNN and no other channels on television — not even CNN’s sister HLN. “I haven’t watched in years,” he said. “I want to see serious news.”
Well he’s watching the right network then:
