ed Turner is the 26th wealthiest man in the U.S.A. (as of 1998) and his networks continue to play a major role in the television news and entertainment industries.

Despite that fact, Turner has been called some pretty brash names throughout the years; for instance: " ‘The mouth of the South’ and ‘Captain Outrageous’ for his notorious volubility and singular opinions." Not only has he been successful in the television/cable industry, though, but he has visualized the value of land and at present he owns various ranches within the U.S. making him the largest single landowner in America. This is interesting because his grandfather lost his own farm during the Depression and the family lived in poverty thereafter, well until Ted came along that is.
