SPEAKING OUT

In honor of CNN's 25th anniversary, founder Ted Turner gave a speech to staffers Wednesday and urged them to cover international news and the environment and not, um, perverts. "You know, we have a lot of perverts on today, and I know that, but is that really news?" he groaned. "I mean, come on. I guess you've got to cover Michael Jackson, but not three stories about perversion that we do every day as well." And I thought silver was the traditional 25th anniversary gift.
