The founder of CNN, Ted Turner, has sparked suicide concerns after his biographer revealed that the 83-year-old suffers from the same debilitating and incurable disease that led Robin Williams to take his own life - and carries around the same silver pistol that his father had used to kill himself. But Lewy Body Syndrome hasn't stopped the outspoken media mogul from speaking his mind about the network he founded - and the man who was running it as president until his very recent ousting for his relationship with a coworker.Turner blames Jeff Zucker for taking CNN away from straight news into a more opinion-led network,

FTA: Turner has long maintained a 'near-fanatical belief' that the station be fair, CNN has never been fair, it's always been 24/7 leftwing news, it's just far more open about it now than when Turner ran the company.

IIRC Turner was always a leftist, he married Hanoi Jane Fonda, America's Sweetheart [urinal cake version] after all. Maybe in his mind there's a difference between leftist and LEFTIST but they are all cockroaches.

President Joe Biden announced Wednesday he would level sanctions on Russia’s proposed Nord Stream 2 Pipeline, after lifting sanctions on the project put in place by former President Donald Trump.“Today, I have directed my administration to impose sanctions on Nord Stream 2 AG and its corporate officers,” Biden said in a statement detailing his decision.In May 2021, Biden lifted sanctions for the pipeline, arguing it would be difficult, if not impossible, for him to block the project.“It’s almost completely finished … it’s not like I can allow Germany to do something or not,” Biden said at the time, explaining why he was willing to lift sanctions.

There's little support among Americans for a major U.S. role in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, according to a new poll, even as President Joe Biden imposes new sanctions and threatens a stronger response that could provoke retaliation from Moscow.Biden has acknowledged a growing likelihood that war in Eastern Europe would affect Americans, though he has ruled out sending troops to Ukraine. Gas prices in the U.S. could rise in the short term. And Russian President Vladimir Putin has a range of tools he could use against the U.S., including cyberattacks hitting critical infrastructure and industries.

Once called on, Doocy wasted no time getting to the point, asking Psaki about a hyperbolic claim by the Biden Pentagon that the "greatest threat facing America is global warming." He asked Psaki if that was still the administration's assessment despite the fact that we are "facing down a potential cyberwar with Russia."

On Tuesday, Joe Biden was an hour-and-a-half late to the remarks he was supposed to make about Russia further invading Ukraine. He slurred and stumbled his way through his speech. He seemed to have enormous difficulty just reading the teleprompter coherently, and it was only a 10-minute address.You would think that – given what Biden was calling an invasion that could affect so much – that he might think the American people deserved some greater explanation of what the Administration was going to do in response — beyond reciting his 10-minute, canned speech.But no such luck.

Because Putin knows if I am president of the United States, his days of tyranny and trying to intimidate the United States and those in Eastern Europe are over.”
