Ted Turner’s CNN is waining, and it shows. At a meeting of the National Association of Television Programming Executives (“NATPE” for the acronym lover), Turner compared FOX News’ success with the popularity of Adolph Hitler during his bid to run Germany.
Turner pointed out that Hitler got the most votes to run Germany prior to WWII… as people elected to run countries tend to do. What’s that got to do with TV ratings in the United States in 2005? Hitler, that’s what! It’s the only play in any good leftists playbook… when you’re getting your ass kicked, your opponent must be Hitler.
Their argument crumbles when we remember that Hitler lost WWII big time. He was a megalomaniacal out-of-control demogogue, incompetent planner and hoarder of property. If we apply those traits alone, if anything is “Hitler”, it’s Ted Turner and CNN.
It’s said that Hitler had only one testicle, but fortunately Ted doesn’t need to whip out a full set of jewels to prove he’s twice as nuts as Hitler… he just needs to open his mouth.
