From Library Journal:

This is yet another "inside story" of television news, but for a change the focus is on the Cable News Network (CNN) and Ted Turner instead of the usual target, CBS. "I just love it when people say I can't do something," Turner says, and this is the story of what the television industry said Turner couldn't do and Turner did anyway. As early as 1976, Turner was fiddling with the idea of an all-news television channel. This book will be published on the tenth anniversary of the launching of CNN. It's an interesting yarn, a bit overwritten, but then the "Mouth of the South" is the subject. Packed with quotes from Turner and leading news figures, this will be popular in public libraries and mass media collections.
