Los Angeles (CA) - Plagued with jokes about his age, Larry King did nothing to show an acceptance of new culture when he recently admitted that he’s never done a single Internet search in his life.
The statement came during one of his TV interviews with Roseanne Barr. "I’ve never done it. I’ve never gone searching", said King. Recently, Larry King started reading viewer e-mail questions on the air during his interviews, in addition to the call-in questions that have been a staple of his show from day one.
Despite Roseanne’s encouraging, King seemed defiant about never going online to search for anything. "No, thanks" and "No, I wouldn’t (like it)" were the only things King had to say before moving on to a different topic. In today’s day and age, there is no way someone could get a TV news job without ever surfing the Net.
King’s attitude sways a bit from the norm of CNN, which has blocks of programming that talk just about blogs and other newsworthy material online.
