Robert Edward "Ted" Turner III is an American media mogul. He is known as founder of the Cable News Network (CNN), the first 24-hour cable news channel.


Turner has long been known as a champion of population control. In 1996, he put $125 million into a foundation to support environmental and population control efforts in the U.S. and abroad. The endowment spends about $6 million a year on projects designed to lower the world's population from the present six billion people to two billion or less.[1]

The billionaire, who has 5 children himself, wants "fertility rights" to be sold, so that poor people "could profit from their decision not to reproduce".[2]
