RAPID CITY, SD -
CNN founder Ted Turner is opposing construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, which would be built close to his central South Dakota buffalo ranch.
CNN broadcast a commentary by Turner in which he said the pipeline shouldn't be built. It would deliver oil from Canada's Alberta province to the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Its proposed route goes through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska in the upper Great Plains.
The manager of Turner's 141,000-acre buffalo ranch southwest of Pierre says the pipeline would cross the Bad River about 15 miles upstream from the ranch. The river flows through Turner's property.
Manager Tom LeFaive says the project should at least guarantee that a percentage of the Canadian crude oil is used in the United States.
