CNN Cancels 'Piers Morgan Live' (Good Riddance)
Newsbusters.org ^ | February 23, 2014 | NB Staff

Posted on 02/23/2014 7:10:58 PM PST by Kaslin

Saying that the British journalist's show had "run its course," CNN president Jeff Zucker told the New York Times earlier today that he was pulling the plug on Piers Morgan's eponymous primetime news program (h/t Politico's Dylan Byers).

The staunchly leftist anti-gun Brit is, of course, a frequent target of our criticism and he's still on our radar whether or not he remains with the network. You can read our archive of Morgan's bias by clicking here. Feel free to share your thoughts on the demise of the former tabloid editor's low-rated program in the comments section.

Bwahahahaha. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer man child. Baldwin crying about his lady parts hurting is just icing on the cake.

Zucker’s by no means on “our” side, but he IS a hardnosed profit-oriented businessman.

Canceling Morgan’s show was not driven by any kind of “getting it” on Zucker’s part.

However, the fact that he DID pull the plug says something about the systemic righteousness of the conservative position, and that’s no small thing.

Celebrate!

It is rather difficult to nicely say good riddance. I hope that was what I had in mind. But then again, get lost you brainless poltroon.

So even liberal Americans watching CNN don’t agree with a “Subject” of the crown espousing his socialistic agenda?

Gun control was his downfall, I believe. There are a lot of 2A Democrats that just can’t stomach that tripe.

Baldwin went all up into it with madcow. This is the beginning of taking these jackasses down. They are in a circular firing squad. Slide them more ammo when needed, but sit back with a heaping bowl of popcorn. This is getting to be fun.

Good riddance would be when the Commie News Network goes belly up. The same for PMSNBC.
I do not understand why any FReeper would be watching it anyway. FOX is the only US news that I get, and even they have enough share of guilt with there several Commie clowns.

I wish Matthews and Sharpton would get cancelled even though I know they are on a different network their ratings are abysmal.

The kinda sad thing is that Piers Morgan was never meant to be “staunchly leftist.” In the UK, he was considered center-right. He just adopted a cause in the US which the center-right had long since abandoned its opposition to and which he had very little understanding of its role in our culture and our security of freedom: gun control. From there, he just made all the wrong friends and all the wrong enemies.

Maybe they can get Jimmy McMillan from the "Rent too damn high Party " to pick up the hosting duties.

I would watch him.

Joey Buttafuoco is another possibility

Was not Moron the guy falsely accusing Tommies of atrocities in Iraq?

At any rate we may surmise that CNN advertisers were getting irritated over his ratings.
