Today's word on journalism

Thursday, April 6, 2006

"It was a big mistake to lose control of CNN. I lost control over it, and I lost it a long time ago and I apologize to everybody. I had a sacred trust there, and I let it get away. I was overconfident. I thought I had done such a good job there was no way they could phase me out.

"We at CNN tried to cover controversial issues as fairly as we could. . . . That's why CNN was accepted all over the world. It was making a positive contribution to the information store of knowledge, encouraging the better nature of mankind."

--Ted Turner, CNN founder, 2006 (accepting the 2006 Delta Prize for Global Understanding at the University of Georgia, 3/30/06)

Inmate told not to associate with others in jail

By Ranae Bangerter

April 06, 2006| LOGAN -- Jenny Jo Earl, who is currently serving time in the Cache County Jail, was ordered by Judge Thomas Wilmore to stop associating with inmates through letters, in 1st District Court's drug court Tuesday.

"If you want to get over your addiction you've got to get away from these people," Wilmore said.

Earl, who has been charged on multiple counts of possession of a controlled substance and drug use, was sentenced to jail March 21 after she tested positive for methamphetamine. She had been attending drug court for almost six weeks before she tested positive. As of Tuesday she has been alcohol and drug free for three weeks.
