Stand up Ted

Some funny quotes from Ted Turner, in New York on Tuesday:

[Turner] offered to fly to Baghdad to cover the war for CNN. “I said if nobody else will do it, I’ll do it. … I’m 64, and I’m pretty well wiped out anyway. It’s a way to go out in a blaze of glory. They said, ‘You’re not really qualified to do it.’ I said, ‘Why not?’ You just have to hold the microphone and say, ‘The bombs are falling.’ ”

He also apologized for calling Connie Chung’s CNN show “awful.” “I shouldn’t have said that. I should have said ‘leaves room for improvement.’ “

Note: Connie Chung’s show was cancelled soon after.
