Andrew Koenig's Parents Walk Off 'Larry King Live'

Walter KoenigThe parents of Andrew Koenig, best known for playing Richard "Boner" Stabone on the television series 'Growing Pains', walked off the set of 'Larry King Live' when their segment was interrupted by a breaking news story. Andrew's father is Walter Koenig, who is best known for playing the character of Pavel Chekov on the original 'Star Trek' series (and is only slightly less known for playing the evil telepath Alfred Bester on 'Babylon 5').

If I were the parents of a missing child, no matter what age, and I was invited to a major news program to plead for his safe return only to have the segment delayed, I'd be pissed off too. It's tough to blame the Koenigs for their behavior, particularly with a missing child. CNN should have rescheduled or at least pre-taped the segment like they did with Andrew's sister. It seems like Larry is getting a little insensitive in his old age.

A missing child? Andrew Koenig is a grown man. He isn't missing. He just doesn't want to be found.

If someone is unable to be located that means they're missing. Seriously, show some class.

Typical. Breaking 'news' usually isn't. ...News, that is. Even when it qualifies as news it's not the sort of thing that requires immediate attention. The American 24 hour news channels are a joke. Infotainment, pandering and tabloid journalism at best.
