Larry King has been critical of the current government for a while now, and this is important because his words still wield influence amongst liberal reporters of the mainstream media.
Even though Mr. King has been vehemently critical of Mr. Trump’s White House administration and has accused them indirectly of colluding with the Russians, it looks to us as if his memory is playing tricks on him lately.
Mr. King, who pronounces himself "worried" by the state of the union, says he hopes his old friend Donald Trump will come by soon for a chat.
“He talked to me every day during the campaign. I haven't heard from him since he was elected. I hope he's still willing to do it.”
As to the Russian colluding of which the mainstream media has accused the Trump administration, Mr. King has chided in with this accusation by stating that “If it looks like a duck, and acts like a duck, and swims like a duck, it’s probably a duck.”
This is all the more strange knowing that Mr. King is a co-owner of Ora Media, a station that licenses content to RT, formerly known as Russia Today, the English spoken media outlet that is known (together with Sputnik news) to be a spokesperson for the Kremlin’s political desires.
As a result of the licensing agreement, Mr. King frequently appears on a Kremlin-sponsored television station, which causes friction as to the apparent connections his company holds which can influence both Russian and American viewers.
During a recent interview with the New York Daily News, Mr. King admitted: “If you get over 80, you have short-term memory loss. I have things I remember from 30 years ago. I've been 60 years in the business. I remember my first day on the air in 1957. I remember where I walked, what the building was like, who the people were – but I don't remember where I had lunch yesterday.”
“Ronald Reagan, near the end, he didn't speak the last year of his life. He couldn't watch color television, because, the doctor explained, red was a surprise to him. So it scared him. So they had to take all the televisions to black and white.”
Perhaps it is time Mr. King would become aware that he suffers from long-term memory loss in realizing where his viewing base was once located.
