Is Mark Cuban The New Ted Turner?

By Indiewire | Indiewire July 25, 2006 at 6:19AM

In New York Magazine, John Heilemann considers the similarities between Mark Cuban and Ted Turner:Cuban rolls into the lobby of the Royalton on the hottest day of the summer, looking chilled and crisp in dark slacks and a blue dress shirt. When I postulate that he's on his way to becoming the new Ted Turner--his generation's Mouth of the South--he initially demurs ("I'm not trying to copy him") but then warms to the theory. "Yeah, it's analogous," he says. "He's a guy I admire. He's done things on his own terms and had fun doing it."
