We are witnessing a most extraordinary period in American politics. That the President Elect has openly labeled CNN as “Fake News” is something that I never thought I would see. It must be remembered that CNN has always reflected the globalisation and internationalist values of its founder, Ted Turner.

I can recall the diktat that banned the use of the word “foreign” from CNN and other Turner networks. Professional Wrestling commentary was most amusing as combatants hit each other with “international objects”.

Today, CNN remains an elitist network and is the only channel I can think of that regularly runs adverts for Rolex and Longines. Having said that, camp business presenter Richard Quest is, in my opinion, still the best thing on TV. I doubt that there is anything fake about Richard!
