Piers Morganís Desperate Attacks on His Critics
The Daily Beast ^ | January 19, 2013 | Michael Moynihan

Posted on 01/22/2013 7:56:03 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

When he’s not solving America’s gun problem, CNN host Piers Morgan spends an extraordinary amount of time battling his critics (there are many) and defending his journalistic integrity. In the course of doing the former, he frequently damages the latter. Because random Twitter trolls, long-time adversaries, and politically disagreeable guests on Piers Morgan Tonight are dismissed as hacks, morons, and scumbags. When I recently criticized him for trivializing the gun-control debate by arguing with unserious people on a very serious topic, Morgan responded with the grace and dignity befitting a CNN journalist: he called me a “poisonous little twerp” on Twitter.

In an interview with Politico media reporter Dylan Byers, Morgan, unconstrained by a 140-character limit, fires back at his critics in much the same fashion, offering a full-throated defense of his interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones (“The best thing about Alex Jones is that 8 million people watched that video on YouTube”), shrugging off the complaints of his predecessor at CNN, Larry King (“I’m a journalist and he’s not”), and claiming that his anti-gun crusade has reached the highest corridors of power (“The president of the United States espoused exactly what I’ve been saying for the last five weeks. No one can tell me we haven’t had an influence”).

Piers sure is a symbolic guy.

Perhaps he'd like to meet his critics at Lexington Green to discuss differences.

Musket Morgan is just another Leftist nobody, and a dumb ass Limey at that, who has to say stupid things so that the conservative media will notice him thus not only giving his no talent fake ass an audience but some props from the Leftist MSM who still value deranged hate for conservatives over any bottom line.

“Journalistic Integrity” - when referring to the vast majority of bottom-O-the-IQ-Barrel dolts in the MSM, is indeed a prime example of an Oxymoron.

He was practically road out of England on a rail. He just barely escaped the tar and feathers.

See post number 8. That was posted on Twitter by Jeremy Clarkson from something else he was reading in Great Britain.

Too funny. I was actually reading that as if Jeremy Clarkson was speaking it, before I saw your follow up post.
