Ted Turner is not well

It seems Ted Turner has gone around the bend at the early age of 66. Either that or he is overcome by jealousy. Or even possibly the dreaded BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome)

LAS VEGAS (AP) - CNN founder Ted Turner has called the Fox television network a ``propaganda voice'' of the Bush administration and compared Fox News Channel's popularity to Adolf Hitler's rise in Germany before World War II.
Does this explain the origin of the Bush = Hitler meme or is Ted just a victim of the disease?

Well lets see if we can get another window into Ted's thinking from the same speech:
``There's one network, Fox, that's a propaganda voice for them,'' the cable news pioneer said. ``It's certainly legal. But it does pose problems for our democracy when the news is 'dumbed-down.'''
Well the Fox having eaten the chicken has something to say about the meal:
Fox News in New York issued a statement saying, ``Ted is understandably bitter having lost his ratings, his network and now his mind - we wish him well.''
