MUMBAI: CNN celebrated its 25th birthday on 1 June 2005. Its founder
Ted Turner said that the network should be covering international
news and the environment, not trivial issues and the
pervert of the day.
Speaking to CNN employees Turner said, "I would like to see
us to return to a little more international coverage on the domestic
feed and a little more environmental coverage, and, maybe, maybe
a little less of the pervert of the day. You know, we have a lot
of perverts on today, and I know that, but is that really news?
I mean, come on. I guess you've got to cover Michael Jackson, but
not three stories about perversion that we do every day as well."
