For everyone’s information: Piers ‘Moron’ Morgan used to be editor of left-wing tabloid rag ‘The Mirror’ back in Britain, and he was sacked when he was caught out publishing fake pictures of British soldiers torturing an Iraqi...

His British accent is sometimes hard to understand. Not good. He was a bad choice for this show....Middle America cannot relate to him.

Middle America cannot relate to him.

As if anyone could relate to Larry King.

CNN Management will be standing there in six months....looking at the same numbers that Larry had over the past three years, and wondering about what it will take to crawl out of the pit on that time-slot.

CNN fail.

Americans tire quickly of British accents on their TVs. A little bit here and there is one thing, but I don’t think people want to put up with an entire hour of it, night after night. This guy Morgan is going to fade away faster than Katie Couric.

Take that to the bank.

I don’t get his new show. Where is Piers’ buzzer, Howie Mandel and Prince Poppycock?

Heh! What an odd choice CNN made. They really didn’t have anyone more qualified? Yikes!
