UPDATE: CNN responds (see below)

To stand or not to stand — that is the question that CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Piers Morgan struggled with for all of the presentation of the colors, the Pledge of Allegiance and half of “The Star-Spangled Banner” on the closing night of last week’s Republican National Convention.

A recently uploaded YouTube video shows “The Situation Room” anchor and the host of “Piers Morgan Tonight” sitting throughout those events, as they were jeered and heckled by attendees at the convention to stand, initially waving off those calls until finally standing at the halfway point of the anthem.

They both despise this country but have no problem collecting our currency. Those two Commies wouldn’t last 1 week in Venezuela or France, just like Johnny Depp they would flee the second the Govt demanded their money

Why would they? Neither bears loyalty to America. They are both disloyal foreigners.

I understand Piers, he isn’t a US Citizen and I wouldn’t expect it but Wolf is and should have.

I recall that during the closing prayer, the lefties where blathering away at full volume, while the more conservative commentators like Arie Fleischer were whispering. It says everything.

Oh, sorry, they weren’t listening, doncha see, how can anybody keep up with these beastly rituals and silly diplays.

It’s not like, well, you could get beheaded or anything for not complying instantly. (/ sarcasm)

If he had any class he would still stand up out of respect. I can’t stand these liberal piss ants.

I am not a US citizen either but would never fail to show respect during the playing of the US national anthem or God Bless America.

Morgan is a self-centered twit.

I’m sure Morgan wouldn’t like it if we showed the same disrespect when the Union Jack was raised and the band played “God Save The Queen”
