LARRY KING'S 50 YEARS OF SHOWBIZ (JANE FONDA LEADS TRIBUTE)
TIMES SQUARE ^ | Sunday, May 06, 2007 | staff

Posted on 05/06/2007 6:22:07 PM PDT by fight_truth_decay

Movie star JANE FONDA kicked off a televised tribute to CNN anchorman LARRY KING by turning up in person to honor her pal. Wearing a white suit, the actress stunned the broadcaster during a special show to honor his 50 years in the business, which aired in America the other night. She said, "Hey Larry, I thought I’d just stop by and say, ‘50 years, you’ve gotta be kidding…’ He doesn’t look a day over 50." She then spoke fondly of her special friendship with the newsman, adding, "You’ve always been a real good friend and you’re one of my favourite people to have as a guest in my ranch." Fonda also had a little fun at King’s expense, joking about his skills as a horseman: "For those of you watching from home you haven’t lived until you’ve seen Larry on a horse; it’s a little bit like George W. Bush in a flight suit it’s just wrong." She concluded by praising King’s interview technique, stating, "Being interviewed by him is like sitting in a living room with a friend… who’s smart, who’s kind (and) a little bit flirtatious." The TV ‘roast’, hosted by comedian Bill Maher, also featured quirky video tributes from former President George Bush, Hugh Hefner, Sarah Ferguson, Chris Rock, Whoopi Goldberg, Ashton Kutcher and Alec Baldwin, who poked fun at his pal’s interviewing technique and joked that the left arm King leans his chin on when listening to guests is false.The actor said, "Larry lost his arm in an accident when he was a child." Celine Dion also joined the celebration, via satellite from her home in Las Vegas, and thanked King for helping to calm her nerves when he first interviewed her on his CNN show Larry King Live. She recalled, "Not only was it one of the biggest moments in my career, in my life, I was very impressed with the way Larry interviewed me."He knew I was scared and he was so respectful, he’s so generous… and he always asked the right questions." Dion even broke her no-singing-before-a-show rule and sang Because You Loved Me unaccompanied for the broadcaster.

Bill Clinton with Larry King on Saddam Hussein and chemical or biological weapons:
"If he has chemical and biological agents -- and I believe he does -- he will
have no incentive not to use them if he knew he was going to be killed anyway and deposed," Clinton said.
"He's got a lot of incentive not to use them now because he knows he'll be toast if he does."

Arrested in Miami on December 20, 1971 on charges of grand larceny, Larry King was in debt to sustain an extravagant lifestyle among other things. There is a connection here to the Kennedy Assassination, as the debt which prompted this arrest was apparently regarding a loan to a financial backer of Jim Garrison. Garrison was the Louisiana district attorney quasi-offically investigating Kennedy's death.

Larry King and wife Shawn

Larry said he had no idea how famous he’d become till he went to the Western Wall. Next to him was a rabbi davening intently, shaking back and forth. Suddenly he turned and asked, “What’s with Perot?”

If Jane Fonda and Bill Maher hosted a show for me I would be so ashamed I would probably shoot myself mid-show.

My Gawd how awful can it get. Hosted by two of the greatest traitors known on this planet.

I never watched Larry King much before,believe me I will spit on the screen next time I see him.

As King has aged, his hair has turned prematurely orange.

I blame Larry King for the wrecking of my father's car in 1981.

I fell asleep at the wheel while listening to his radio show late one night.

President Bush was flying F 104's which was not a forgiving aircraft and this traitorous B**CH who was swapping spit with our enemy in North Vietnam says he looks wrong in a flight suit. This traitor is also ignorant.

More detail..A.A. Cunningham: Arrested in Miami on December 20, 1971 on charges of grand larceny, Larry King was in debt to sustain an extravagant lifestyle...

In the early 1970s, he was entangled in legal and financial troubles. He was arrested on December 20, 1971 and charged with grand larceny. The charges stemmed from a deal he had made with Louis Wolfson. In 1968, Wolfson was convicted of selling unregistered stock.

The circumstances are unclear. According to King, he told Wolfson that he could arrange a special investigation by John Mitchell, the incoming US Attorney General, to overturn the conviction. Wolfson agreed, and paid King $48,000.

King never delivered, and could not pay back the money. When Wolfson was released from prison, he went after King. According to Wolfson, King served as an intermediary between Wolfson and New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison. Garrison was investigating the assassination of President Kennedy, but needed to raise funds for the investigation. Wolfson offered to pay $25,000 to help fund the investigation. The arrangement was that Wolfson gave Larry King cash (about $5,000 per visit). King was supposed to give this to Richard Gerstein, the State Attorney for Dade County, Florida. Gerstein was to transfer the money to Garrison. This took place over a year or two.

Wolfson eventually found that not all the money he gave to King made it to Garrison. The larceny charge was dropped because the statute of limitations had run out. But King pled no contest to one of 14 charges of passing bad checks. As a result of these troubles, he was off the air for three years. During those three years he worked several jobs. He was the PR director at a race track in Louisiana and he wrote some articles for Esquire Magazine, including a major piece on New York Jets quarterback Joe Namath.

50 years?

Who's he trying to fool?

Larry King split rent with Stephen Foster in a Bowery walk-up back in the day.

I actually often enjoyed his radio show back in the late 70s and early 80s. His show was on all night and not just two or three hours. But I thought back then he did a good job of interviewing his guests and he often had interesting guests. I knew he had a liberal spin but at least he was not pretending to be objective. I have no idea what his TV show is like. I don’t have cable and I have pretty much dropped out of watching TV (and I don’t miss it).

Wrong, President Bush flew a F102, Delta Dagger, not a F104. There is a possibility he flew a F106, which is very similar to the 102, but faster. Also suspect he started in a T33 jet trainer

You’re both right, I stand corrected. I don’t know why I put down 104 other than I was upset. :-)

(PETER PAUL AND HILLARY) Witness Larry King . . . King's underwear . . . 25 grand to be on the show
Peter Paul ^ | 8-24-06 | Doug from Upland

Posted on 08/24/2006 10:44:14 AM PDT by doug from upland

LOADS OF INFO ON HILLCAP.ORG

VIDEO - PETER AND HILLARY AT SPAGO

VIDEO - PETER AND HILLARY AT THE GERSHMAN TEA

HOME VIDEO - PETER, HILLARY, AND THE AMAZON ROSES

Okay, now that I have your attention, I won’t keep you in suspense about the underwear. In 1972, a young attorney in Miami named Peter F. Paul was serving as a law clerk. As his first official act, he was directed by his firm to serve a subpoena in a civil fraud suit on one Larry King. King was also hiding out from the authorities for criminal fraud and failure to pay massive debts. He eventually spent some time in the gray bar motel.

King arrest photo.

Under an assumed name, King was hiding out in Dupont Plaza. Peter knocked on the door. When he came to the door, King was in his underwear. Ewwwwwww. Peter asked him if he was Larry King, handed him the subpoena, and told him he was served. Boxers or briefs? They were Jockeys.

King is going to be subpoenaed to testify in the Paul v. Clinton case. In July of 2000, he spent an hour and a half in Peter’s Stan Lee Media office discussing with him the role Bill Clinton was going to be play as a rainmaker for SLM when he left the presidency. King joined his wife Shawn for the luncheon at Spago. She attended the Gershman Tea. Peter was not certain, but he just checked the guest list, and King was at the gala concert.

The list grows daily of the people who knew all about Bill Clinton’s plans to come to work for SLM. According to her declaration of 4-7-06, it seems that Hillary was not in the loop. Isn’t that how it always is? The wife is always the last to know. Chelsea knew. Why didn’t she tell her mommy? Hey, I bet even Vince Foster and Ron Brown know, but they can’t be subpoenaed. (Note to leftist critics: I have never claimed that they were murdered.)

ANN ON LARRY KING
When Tom DeLay was indicted by the crazed political prosecutor in Texas, Ann Coulter was a guest on LKL. As soon as she mentioned the million dollars never declared by Hillary, King changed the subject. When I met Ann recently after her appearance on Jay Leno, I told her about King’s role in the Hillary fiasco. She was unaware of King’s role and was also unaware that defendant Bill has a date in a Los Angeles courtroom early next year.

Here is a photo taken at Spago that King may view a little more favorably than his mug shot.

It was December of 1991, and Russian citizens were celebrating their first Christmas in freedom. Peter had organized the Hollywood community to bring medicine, food, toys, and other necessities for a group of Russian orphans. About 120 celebrities participated and dropped off the gifts at the Spago parking lot. Peter arranged for an airlift to deliver them.

You might wonder what it takes to get an invite to be on the Larry King Alive show. I have the answer. Twenty-five thousand dollars. That is what Peter had to pay. It seems that Aaron Tonken had been hanging around Los Angeles with a Mormon fundraiser. He came to the SLM office and discussed with Peter having Stan Lee on Larry’s show. Sure, no problem. Make a $25,000 check out to Larry’s favorite Mormon charity, and you have a deal. So, Stan was graciously invited to appear on the show. (Note to self: talk to JimRob. Maybe we can raise 25 grand and get him on LKL.)

As an aside, did anyone see LKL on the Monday following the Aug. 12, 2000 gala fundraiser? King had on Cher and dear Hillary. That would have been on the 14th, the day before the WASHPOST article and the beginning of the “Peter Who?” campaign.

Oh, in case you wondered. No, I don’t have a photo of Larry in his underwear. If I did, you would have seen it. Peter described them as being “saggy.”

NOTE TO LARRY: please don’t wear HILLARY 2008 suspenders for your deposition. And don’t expect softballs.

Decamp said Bonacci told him "Larry King was smiling and laughing the whole time the film was being shown...as the men watched, they passed Nicholas [another victim] and me around as if we were toys, and sexually abused us." [U.S. District Court, 2-5-1999, pp.115-129]
