On June 1st CNN will commemorate the 40th anniversary of its initial broadcast. A truly herculean pioneering effort (with a generous sprinkling of good fortune) is recounted in detail by Lisa Napoli in the recently published "Up All Night". Napoli dives deeply into the background and psyche of Ted Turner who, we learn, despised the predictable establishment news of the big 3 networks. Decades before Tim Cook uttered the words, Turner "created something we didn't know we needed but now cannot live without". View the first broadcast here.
