That’s great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes and aeroplanes, Anderson Cooper is not afraid, because he’ll probably be the one informing us of our demise. In 1980, when CNN launched, founder Ted Turner promised that his 24-hour news network “won’t be signing off until the world ends.” But just in case the apocalypse is now, he has a tape all set.
We’ll be on, and we will cover the end of the world, live, and that will be our last event. We’ll play the National Anthem only one time, on the first of June, and when the end of the world comes, we’ll play “Nearer My God to Thee” before we sign off. (Via)
That tape has never been seen…until now. Jalopnik got their hands on it, and here it is.
