I hate to say it...but this is coming from the Daily KOS, it wouldn't surprise me if the Democrats ran this website (which...they do, actually, it is a very partisan site)
I thank you very much for being here tonight. Let me also thank Fidel Castro. In the earliest days of CNN, when CNN was meant to be seen only in the United States, the enterprising Fidel Castro was pirating and watching CNN in Cuba. Fidel was intrigued by CNN. He wanted to meet the person responsible. So Ted Turner, who at that point had never traveled to a Communist country or knowingly met a Communist, [went to Havana]. It was big deal for Ted and during the discussions Castro suggested that CNN be made available to the entire world. In fact it was that seed, that idea that grew into CNN International, which is now seen in every country and territory on the planet.
Fonda Recounted Ted Turner's Atheism and Boasting of Communist Friends

There are a few other more personal notes in the Barbara Walters interview with Jane Fonda on PBS. Ted Turner's first words on his first date with Fonda are a little bizarre: "We got in the car. His first words to me was, ‘some of my best friends are communists. I’m thinking, ‘did he say that because he thinks I’m a communist, and it won’t get in the way’?" He named Gorbachev and Castro as his close friends.
Walters told Fonda "We all though that was a marriage that was pretty special." She asked "What broke it up? The rumor was that you became spiritual. You found religion. He didn’t like that." She also mentioned that Turner had adulterous relationships.
Fonda agreed that religion became a problem: "I did it while I was married to him and I didn’t tell him, which is not playing fair actually. But by then, we weren’t on the same team, basically. I felt myself being drawn to faith, very strongly, very viscerally, and Ted was the champion of the debate team at Brown. And I knew that if I talked to him about it, he who was an atheist, he would talk me out of it. And I was so raw and so new with this faith that I didn’t want to expose myself to that. So he found out and got upset, as well he should have. It was not a good thing for me to have done."
Walters: "Is it still very important to you?"
Fonda: "It is. I’m in theology classes in Atlanta, and I’m trying to...I was raised an atheist myself, so I have a lot of catching up to do, to find out what does this mean? So I’m studying theology, the history of religion, the history of the Bible."
Walters: "Do you go to church?"
Fonda: "I do sometimes. I’ve been traveling too much in the last year."

Don't like Republican ideas? Don't like the Conservative slant? Nobody is forcing you to watch Fox. You are quite free to change the channel and put it on MS'___'...ooops!....I mean....MSNBC! Plenty of Liberal spin to be found there.
Now that I think about it, it seems to me that most of the media has a Liberal bias. I can't believe people are so upset about the fact that there is still one news channel that gives a voice to the conservative side of things. Seems to me that certain people are afraid of having their viewpoints challenged. Intellectual cowardice at its finest.

Not afraid of different view points, just don't like Neocon lies, manipulation and propaganda starting wars, winning elections and the like... There is only so much spin you can apply before the original article of information is turned into a falsehood - LIE.
News should not have any bias, news should be information not pasted together by physiological profilers as it is on FOX.
Unamerican, Unpatriotic, Terrorist lovers, Real Americans etc... thats what I don't like on a personal level, likely make some FOX anchor jerky...
