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.

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).
