I always heard about the Ted Turner quote where he says that CNN will report on the end of the world, but I didn't know that he meant it this much. Be sure to set your DVRs...





So when Ted Turner said that CNN was going to be playing "Nearer My God To Thee"—the song the band supposedly played when the Titanic went down—as the heavens opened up, as the fiery finger of God rained salt and brimstone from the sky, as the Earth beneath our feet opened from below and swallowed everything above, as the last CNN employee, in the last surviving CNN studio in the world, witnessed the end of existence before them, he meant it.

When Ted Turner was participating in America's Cup, a major international sailing event, he was known as "The Mouth of the South" so this doesn't surprise me.
