US "liberal" media mogul and zealous financier of projects designed to lower the world's population.
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.
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".
According to the Traditional Roman Catholic Network, Turner is mentioned as Brad Gerstein-Snell in Malachi Martins 1996 book: Windswept House: A Vatican Novel.
