Book Review:

Up All Night - Ted Turner, CNN, and the Birth of 24-Hour News

New York media circles…were predicting – and almost hoping – that CNN would fail, for its success would upend not just news, but the entire advertising industry.

Wasted space – wasted anything – drove Ted crazy. It made zero sense [to him] that television stations ceased transmission each night.

Ted fell to his hands and knees to underscore his contrition and begged. ‘You gotta let me sell this station, or I’m a goner.

Lisa Napoli details the almost unbelievable history of media mogul Ted Turner and his foremost invention: CNN.
