Yep...while Ted thinks Rupert is a 'warmonger', the rest of us know that Ted's network was paying for access, submitting to censorship, and furthering the reign of torture, maiming, and murder of Iraqis and others. Ted's the one with blood on his hands.
Just to note, well before CNN became a part of Time Warner, it was noted that Saddam Hussein's favorite news station was CNN (castro also said this), and as a result in the first gulf war, they were given favorable coverage and special treatment (the HBO movie was total bull, even according to people that worked at CNN).

I'm having a difficult time trying to put Ted's comments into the proper perspective:
CNN lied, distorted and skewed their "reporting" from Iraq, and in the end has lost viewers/money.
FOX News gives honest reporting and their commentators wear American flags and root for Saddam's evil regime to lose, and in the end gain viewers/money.
Turner to audience - "Murdoch is a pro-American warmonger."
Turner/CNN supports a despotic leader and murderous regime.
Does that make Turner/CNN "Anti-American Despot-supporting, Peacemongers?"
