Piers Sacked But Staying There

Piers Morgan's talk show has been cancelled by CNN and he blames the controversy over his stance on gun control.
A spokesperson announced: 'CNN confirms that Piers Morgan Live is ending. The date of the final program is still to be determined'.
'Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarising' he explained referring to his call for tighter gun control measures in the wake of the December 14 massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.
I have always found Piers to be a massive moron but the American gun laws even more moronic so as far as i was concerned it was an idiot trying to tell cretins that their boneheaded guns fetish was wrong which was never going to play well in a place where the solution to 20 kids and 6 staff getting shot in school was to try and introduce more guns to the equation.  
My biggest worry though was that the smug faced gimp would come back here but before i could email CNN begging them to give him another go, they said they were discussing a new role for him at the channel.
Phew, that was close.

I agree he's a moron. I never noticed any of his views, just that his interview style was so stupid and grating. I think you pointed out a while back that he wasn't some respected British journalist before he got his current gig at CNN but a reality TV show judge.

Don't know how he got the job at CNN, i think someone got the wrong person and then they had to give him the job. Can't think why else he would get it.
He was a disgraced Editor of a tabloid before he was a reality TV show judge and not sure why he was picked for that either.

“cretins”
“boneheaded”
“fetish”

Lefty approach to the “someone disagrees” scenario:

Response - Use nasty labels to debase. imply the dissenter is less intelligent or less good.

Motivation - Rationalize the elitist use of government, under the guise of equality or reason, to impose leftist views - personal freedom be damned.

'Nasty labels' aren't necessary where Morgan is concerned. The dispassionate truth is damning enough. He's a massive failure at everything he's done.

What i was trying to imply was that Morgan is a moron and he was in a word war with people of the same calibre. I just flowered it up a bit.

I'm glad that we're at least all in agreement that Piers Morgan should not be on television. :-D

Q-
Have you watched Piers Morgan? He's bad enough to warrant a harsh word or two.

of course, noah, I was just calling out the actions often used by the left for far less offenses. especially since to me all left logic is conditional and changes with the wind...

Lucy - if guns in America are so horrid I wonder why he wants to stay? maybe not as bad as he portrayed... maybe UK isn't so good... thoughts?

For the money?

Also, we operate a strict 'no returns' policy where useless failed interviewers are concerned.
