Inside Move: Catholic League prexy gives Turner a sermon

'May be just as dumb as John Rocker,' Donohue sez

The Mouth from the South strikes again. At a meeting with CNN staffers in the network’s Washington bureau on Ash Wednesday, CNN founder Ted Turner noticed a number of employees had ashes on their foreheads. “What are you,” Turner asked, “a bunch of Jesus freaks? You ought to be working for Fox.”

After Fox News recounted the incident Tuesday night on “Special Report With Brit Hume,” Catholic League president William Donohue issued a diatribe about Turner:

“He may be just as dumb as John Rocker, but unlike the Atlanta pitcher, he occupies a position of significant influence in our culture,” Donohue said. “That is why we look to his superiors at AOL Time Warner to denounce Turner for his relentless attacks on Christians. Indeed, they might want to take a page from professional baseball and ship Turner off for some sensitivity training.”
