The biggest thing that bothers me is how people can be bought out with money, although it sounds cliché to say that but it’s so true. Ted Turner was a man who was against many things and was a great innovator, by creating the first cable network available on basic cable throughout the country. As this was growing across the country more and more companies joined in two basic cable, such as news networks and the learning channel. That’s when Turner decided to create a second network cable news, even though he said “I hate the news. News is evil. It makes people feel bad.” Even though he feels that way about the news he still sold out his own beliefs for more money and control.
