We knew Ted Turner was intellectually challenged, but now the media mogul has revealed himself as fashionably ignorant of history. On the Political Grapevine of tonight's Special Report with Brit Hume: a report of the CNN founder likening, somehow, Fox News to Adolf Hitler. And Fox News to President Bush, then back to Hitler. Somehow.
Said a Fox News spokesman in response, "Ted is understandably bitter. He's lost his ratings, his network, and now his mind. We wish him well." [Slight revision, having heard it a second time. Even sharper.]
