    CNN honchos have been busy putting together a list of potential Piers Morgan replacements to host a nightly chat show much like his failed one, and Confidenti@l has learned which names are being tossed around. “Rosie O’Donnell is at the top; the rest are Joy Behar, Ann Curry, Anthony Bourdain, David Muir, Star Jones, Anderson Cooper and Rachel Maddow,” one person with knowledge of the list tells us. “Most of the people that are being considered are ones that either create news, are going to make news or have rated really high on television in the past.”

    RUSH: Piers Morgan just got lopped at CNN. What took them so long? This guy hasn't had any audience since its first day. So they import a Brit, a not particularly nice-sounding Brit... I mean, some British accents are kind of seductive. This just sounded nasal. Every time I listen to Piers Morgan I want to clear my throat and blow my nose. My God, the guy needs a saliva drain in his mouth. Anyway, he is gone. They finally got rid of him, and they're chalking it up to two things. A, imported Brit. B, he wouldn't let go...

    If there’s one thing more annoying than an American liberal elitist lecturing Americans on appropriate conduct and conversation, its a British liberal elitist lecturing Americans on appropriate conduct and conversation. Piers Morgan is out at CNN. Cheerio! The New York Times reported: There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared...

    OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - An Oklahoma lawmaker seems to have found himself in a duel over gun rights. Last week, State Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, filed legislation he's calling the "Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act." Senate Bill 1473 -- its less colorful title -- would allow anyone to carry a firearm without a license. “The Second Amendment says the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and yet when we require our citizens to jump through hoops, pay fees and undergo a process that presumes they’re...

    CNN's Piers Morgan admitted that he is fighting U.S. gun laws despite it being "not my country" and "not my constitution." In an interview with TV Newser, the CNN host explained, "It's not my country, it's not my constitution, but I'm a resident here, and I'm therefore governed by the same constitutional rights as anybody else." He also went on another mini-gun control rant on Tuesday night:

    Piers Morgan used a fake news site to mock Sarah Palin on Twitter on Thursday. He linked to the satirical news site The Daily Currant saying that Palin claimed Jesus celebrated Easter. "And she's back!" Morgan gloated, with absolutely no mention that the article was fake. When critics told him the website was satire, Morgan answered that he knew it was. Yet he praised the notion that it was believable. "That's the beauty of it," Morgan wrote when someone tweeted that it was "hilarious even if its fake. Why? I believed it." That wasn't the first time Morgan has derided...

    The Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson,a conservative, made some contentious statements on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” on Thursday. In addition to lambasting Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for inserting race into Trayvon Martin’s death and George Zimmerman’s subsequent trial, he called the 17-year-old shooting victim a “thug.” Rev.

    Piers Morgan clearly has no qualms about inviting people on his show who fiercely disagree with him or even attack him personally, and tonight's opening interview with radio host Larry Elder did not disappoint. Elder told Morgan his interview with George Zimmerman trial witness Rachel Jeantel was horrendous and "condescending," and even told Morgan that he was being "stupid" for his assessment of Jeantel's character.

    CNN talker Piers Morgan is already suffering from consistently weak ratings. So it's hard to imagine U.S.-based viewers will flock to his show after reading his Fourth of July tweet. Morgan could be playing the cheeky outsider here, looking to stir up comments on his Twitter account on a beloved American holiday. The Twitter brigade will have the last say on this front.

    On Wednesday night, CNN’s Piers Morgan hosted Robert Zimmerman, Jr., the brother of George Zimmerman, whose controversial tweet comparing Trayvon Martin to De’Marquise Kareem Elkins, a Georgia teenager accused of shooting a 13-month-old baby in the face, has sparked cries of racism. Morgan almost immediately went after Zimmerman, saying his tweets comparing the two “black boys” were “very controversial” and “bordering on outright racism.” Here are the tweets in question:

    Live from New York! It’s King George the Third!!!!!!!!! Brought to you by CNN! CNN’s Piers Morgan, a British citizen, has been in the news lately for his views on gun control. He’s for it. He’s not so big on the U.S. Constitution. As he made clear in this exchange with Breitbart’s Ben Shapiro. At one point, Morgan picked up a booklet copy of the U.S. Constitution Shapiro had brought with him, saying: Morgan: “…you come in and brandish your little book…” Shapiro: “That’s the Constitution of the United States.” Later in the show was this exchange as Shapiro made...

    Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan has been sacked after the newspaper conceded photos of British soldiers abusing an Iraqi were fake. In a statement the Mirror said it had fallen victim to a "calculated and malicious hoax" and that it would be "inappropriate" for Morgan to continue. The Queen's Lancashire Regiment (QLR) said the Mirror had endangered British troops by running the pictures. Roger Goodman, of the QLR, said the regiment now felt "vindicated". Mr Goodman added: "It is just a great pity it has taken so long... and that so much damage has been done in the meantime." Daily...

  • Obama Would Deport Churchill – but Never Piers Morgan

    12/23/2012 7:09:14 PM PST · by publius321 · 4 replies
    A petition has been circulating the Internet to "deport" British citizen and CNN Host Piers Morgan for his attacking of the Second Amendment and the Bill of Rights on his television show. It probably would have been more plausible if the petition were to simply revoke his work visa and replace it with a B-2 “Vacation, Tourism, Pleasure” visa, which could prevent him from working in the US. Seriously, I realize that the purpose is to require “White House response” but I can’t imagine Obama would “deport” the guy to England for attacking the second amendment when he himself is...

    Watch "America's Got Talent" judge turned CNN talker Piers Morgan and you can't help but notice how he badgers conservatives while hurling softballs at left-of-center guests. That hardly makes him unusual in mainstream media circles. What is unusual, though, is the column he just penned for The Daily Mail. The headline says it all,"He's one of the least principled politicians I've met. But I believe Mitt Romney might just save America." Morgan doubles down on Romney's image as a flip-flopper, but he goes on to salute Romney as a man, father and husband and remind us the GOP presidential candidate...

    On Tuesday, May 16, CNN did something that hadn't happened to the network since 1997: The 9 p.m. edition of Piers Morgan Tonight drew an audience of only 39,000 viewers in the important 25-54 age demographic. These numbers come as a huge blow to the host, liberal, former tabloid editor Piers Morgan.

    Obama's re-election campaign received a huge boost Monday night from CNN's Piers Morgan. The host groveled before Obama's campaign strategist David Axelrod, gushing that "A lot of things are just perfect about Barack Obama." The interview could have been served on a silver platter for the Obama campaign. Morgan's first question went thus: "I would imagine that you guys are feeling fairly chipper, aren't you? I mean you had an extraordinarily successful week in many ways." Morgan also fawned over the President himself, touting "I always feel he's got so many pluses, doesn't he? In a sense, he's personable, he's...

    Via Gossip Cop, such is the viral potential of this video that you’re going to end up watching it somewhere. It might as well be here and now. I don’t understand her objection. Did Morgan not let her talk about her book at all during the course of the interview? Or is she just really, really opposed to talking about gay marriage for whatever reason? Unless there’s an agreement before the show that certain topics are off-limits, the host is usually free to ask anything he/she wants. Palin just did an hour of questions with reporters last week at the...
