Turner: Only Buffet ‘likes to pay more taxes’


Talking to Bloomberg at the Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting Monday in New York, media mogul Ted Turner sounded off on Warren Buffett, who has become the poster boy for President Obama's push to raise taxes on the wealthy.

"Nobody likes to pay more taxes. At least, except Warren Buffett likes to pay more taxes. He's the only one," Turner said. When asked if he thought Buffett should pay more to the government, he answered, "Well, he thinks so. He can always write a check to the government. Just send them the money."

In the interview, Turner also touches on the phone-hacking scandal troubling Rupert Murdoch's news empire and Obama's jobs plan. Watch here
