Skip to comments.Piers Morgan Gets in Twitter War With Radio Host Opie (of ‘Opie & Anthony’)
Posted on 12/19/2012 11:10:08 AM PST by sopwith
On Tuesday, CNNs Piers Morgan and admitted shock jock Gregg Opie Hughes of Sirius Satelite Radios Opie and Anthony Show got into a war of words on Twitter. At the center of the battle between these two media stars was what Hughes calls CNNs over-saturated coverage of the school shootings (and more specifically the shooter) in Newtown, CT.
This all started on Monday morning when Opie tired of the endless coverage of the shooter on all of the media outlets posted this video asking the media why it is not okay to show people running on the field at sporting events, but it is accepted and expected when news operations overwhelm their audiences with coverage of mass murderers like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter?

Take the poll at the bottom.
Its simple Opie, if showing fans running on the field at sporting events promoted left wing causes then they would show it. Since it doesn’t they do not show it.
Glad someone else thinks it’s oversaturated....I’m ready to destroy the TV in our break room, which is on CNN all day!
Excellent point - when considering what changes in society have likely led to these incidents in increasing numbers the MSM and their off the hook coverage have to be at the top of the list.
I wonder what Ted, Chip, and Uncle Paul have to say about this.
Uncle Paul just wishes CNN would have more kids programming ;-)
Opie makes a solid point. And I’m more inclined to believe the link between pornography as News than a video game.
My Grandfather did more than play video games when he was a kid as the driver and gunner of a Sherman in Normandy, but he didn’t come back and shoot up any schools. Same goes for all of our combat veterans.
At what point do people own up to the fact that man, as animal, can do criminally stupid and destructive things - regardless of weapon choice? And there is nothing that banning things will do about it.
Did the Khmer Rouge have video games? I don’t remember... Stalin must have been a serious COD guru or something...
Morgan makes me sick. Didn’t he flee England to avoid prison over wiretapping charges? I think he’s trying to bait somebody into taking a swing at him to prove how “violent” Americans are. Careful what you wish for, Pierce.
You should do what we did when our break-room TV was constantly on CNN. We unplugged it. When the manager asked why, we said it was so depressing that it affected company morale, which was true.
We enjoyed the silence so much it was not turned on again.
over-saturation is putting it kindly. They need to let the families grieve in peace and leave the children alone so that they can get themselves together again. I was especially horrified that they put children on camera right after the incident to tell everyone what happened - I didn’t think that was right to do to the kids. This type of hype is only going to inspire some nutcase to top this incident.
I refuse to watch the coverage of this. Thank God for the Food Network!

Progressive Wallahs issue another fat wad against America.
Good Lord...I agree with Opie and Roger Ebert.
Good for them. Glad they’re on our side on this one.
BTW, folks, the “Newswipe” video embedded at Blaze is worth going over there all by itself. I think I’m going to post it to facebook.
Yep! He’s not well liked in England, either.
It could be worse - MSNBC all day.
The last time the Brits tried to take the guns away from Americans, they lost.
