Turner Father/Son Red Herring

February 22, 2013

On the surface, it may appear that “Teddy” Turner Jr., who is running for Congress in South Carolina, hates his father.  The son of the billionaire liberal magnate Ted Turner uses his father as a punching bag in public speeches as he rails against liberalism.  But in fact, the act is a bit of a ruse, and both father and son seem okay with the haranguing.  A Red Herring if we’ve ever seen one.
