Not in the least. Turner and Warners are talking about a merger, so the
Warner propaganda machine goes into overdrive to make Ted look good for
the general public (and especially for their stockholders). And painting
Ted with the "family man" image will play well with the Capitol Hill crowd
who've been using Time-Warner as their "family values" whipping boy.
