Why Turner Fears The BBC

The BBC has prepped a documentary on Ted Turner called “Naked News,” and it’s driving the Mouth of the South crazy, say sources close to the Turner empire. Turner has been attempting to get a glimpse at the doc, which debuts on the Beeb this week and will be seen on A& E next month, to do damage control if warranted. At full tilt in his quest to buy a network, longtime Turner watchers say he’s doing what he can to clean up his image and is afraid the bio will put too much emphasis on his hard-partying past. Turner is deeply suspicious of the BBC’s motives, because it’s a prime challenger to his CNN in the race to be the dominant global news network.
