Morgan refused the demand to apologise, was sacked and immediately escorted from the building

Couldn't happen to a more deserving moron.

Not only that, he was also a scoundrel corrupt insider trader: “Once, when Morgan knew that the financial section of his newspaper was going to write a glowing review of a technology company, Morgan took over $100,000 and invested it in that company’s stock, with the inside knowledge that his paper would promote it.”

Piers Morgan was fired by the Mirror on May 14, 2004.

Why did you date the article December 21, 2012?

The article leads one to believe Morgan was involved directly in the hoax and refused to appologise. Not hard to believe.

Piers Morgan is a joke in England. Seriously, the exact equivalent would be for us to send the Brits David Hasselhoff to do their news shows. In fact Piers and David worked on that talent game show together with Sharon Osborn.

Someone actually posted this link on Morgan's Facebook page, I wonder how long it will be there?

I made a screen capture of the whole page, just in case it gets lost.

Morgan is also extremely rude to his guests, thinks he knows it all (i.e. arrogant), and has brought CNN down lower in public opinion than it has been before.

Makes Anderson Cooper seem like the best that they have (not much competition, though).

So what you’re saying is that the Daily Mirror has more integrity than CNN?

LOL! I hope so! 'Ignorant twit' it my usual label for these socialist wankers who don't have enough bloody sense to stay in their own country where everyone already hates their hyper-liberal guts!

IIRC, he lives in the US because there's an outstanding criminal warrant for him in the UK for that.

It’s too bad Jeremy Clarkson can’t really throw a HARD Right Cross!
I’ll pray some true American can do better.

"Hey, if you guys want any more dirt on Morgan talk to us Brit freepers."

Hey, if you have more tidbits on the Brit Twit, let us have 'em. Every little bit helps.

We have enough arrogant socialists in the U.S. media without CNN importing them and stuffing them and their dangerous propaganda down our throats in prime time.
