Piers Morgan does not take kindly to criticismjust ask Larry King!
The 80-year-old journalist, who retired from Larry King Live in 2010 and now hosts Larry King Now on Hulu, told Howard Stern on Wednesday he felt CNN made a "mistake" picking Morgan to replace him.
"I thought it was a mistake, one, to hire a Britisher [sic] in prime time," he said, "and, two, I thought that he made himself too much part of the show." In other words? There was "too much 'I'" on the now-canceled show, King said.
It wasn't my kind of show," he clarified. "He was nice to me. I went on his show two or three times...He wasn't unfriendly to me. It just wasn't my type of show."
On Thursday, Morgan, 49, took to Twitter (where else?!) to fire back. "Hey Larry @kingsthings - you don't need to KEEP bitching about me. It's over. Relax," he wrote. "And FYI @kingsthings - there is no such word as "Britisher'. But then research & facts were never your strong point were they, Brooklyner?"
"As for our respective egos, one of us changed his name legally to 'King' and it wasn't me. So get over yourself," he continued. "Always tried to be respectful to @kingsthings - but he's been a constant poisonous twerp towards me for 3 years and I'm bored with it."
Then Morgan gave his final musing (for now) on the matter, tweeting, "Why should I show any respect to @kingsthings any more when he has shown zero to me? Game on, Brooklyner."
From one big ego to another. Show biz, media, and politics invite big egos. I enjoy seeing them poked at by “little people” but remain troubled why so many believe them, worship them, and want to be them.
Girlyman cat fight.
Piers who ?
Is this a popcorn-worthy thread?
No sic required for Britisher.
Once again Piers you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about:http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/Britisher
Give them both dull paring knives and maybe they will eliminate each other/
I popped a fresh batch before clicking.
Piss Morgan is far more obnoxious, arrogant and self-righteous than mealymouthed King.
Yo, Brit Twit.
Larry King may be a poisonous twerp, but he is OUR poisonous twerp.
So buzz off, limey fag.
I would buy the popcorn to see both of these ani flambés mud-wrestle naked with 10 starving pitbulls ... and Oprah ... while Brownies plinked at them with Daisy air rifles ... for charity of course.
The winner (or survivor) to receive a six-month, all-expense paid tour to Chechnya. Suggest Maya Angelou as narrator.
Worth a look.
As for Piers, sod off, wanker.
A Britisher wouldn’t know it’s a perfectly good American English word.
Often when someone accuses someone of something it is what the accuser is often guilty of. The dims seems to wallow in this as we see it so often on so many threads here. Psychological projection seems to be epidemic within their ranks.

Anyone besides me think Larry King’s dumber than a sack of hammers?
I really do believe, that Piers believes, that the British is amassing an armada off of our shores in an attempt to finally defeat the Colonists.
Must be a terrible thing for one not to be welcome in one’s own country.
Not too many people have failed on BOTH sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
Not only is he dumb, but a liar to boot. King used to brag all the time that he was a boyhood friend of Sandy Koufax. He would tell stories of all the times he and Koufax had back in Brooklyn. Anyway, someone finally asked Koufax about Larry King. Koufax’s reply was he never heard of him. King was just making it all up.
