Watch: CNN Founder Slams His Own Channel, Says It’s Becoming Too Political Ted Turner (@CNN/Twitter)

CNN founder, in an interview to CBS, remarked that his channel had been too political and they should take a more neutral stance, The Daily Wire has reported.

"I think they're stickin' with politics a little too much. They’d do better to have — a more balanced — agenda,” Turner said.

Turner also revealed through the interview that he was dealing with Lewy Body Dementia which causes fatigue and loss of memory. “It's a mild case of what people have as Alzheimer's. It's similar to that. But not nearly as bad. Alzheimer's is fatal. Thank goodness I don't have that. But, I also have got... I can't remember the name of it,” Turner said during his interview.

CNN has been under fire of US President Donald Trump for peddling “fake news”. He has also refused to take questions from the channel during his press conferences in recent times.
