    Former CNN host Piers Morgan had some choice things to say about his old network in a conversation with Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Monday night. Morgan, who left CNN about three years ago, told Carlson that while many CNN anchors had integrity, he was convinced some employees "lower in the food chain" were "determined" to see Donald Trump lose the presidential election last year. That bias was all but proven in the WikiLeaks email dumps that showed CNN colluding with Democrats to undermine anyone not named Hillary Clinton. {..snip..}
  • Piers Morgan to Meryl Streep: Anti-Trump speech was ‘worst performance of your career’

    Columnist and admitted Meryl Streep fan Piers Morgan said the actress’ anti-Donald Trump rant delivered during Sunday night’s Golden Globes was “easily” the worst performance of her career. In his column Monday for The Daily Mail, Mr. Morgan lamented the “stench of hypocrisy” throughout Ms. Streep’s speech that condemned the president-elect and accused him of bullying others. “She began by saying that Hollywood, foreigners and the press are ‘the most vilified segments of American society right now,’” Mr. Morgan wrote. “At which point the cameras panned out to hundreds of the richest, most privileged people in American society sitting in...

    Former State Dept. employee Lawrence C. Yontz, 48, pled guilty before a U.S. magistrate to illegally accessing hundreds of passport files, including those of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain. He didn’t access Sarah Palin’s passport file, presumably because she obtained a passport for the first time last year. According to the Justice Dept.: In pleading guilty, Yontz admitted that between February 2005 and March 2008, he logged onto the PIERS database and viewed the passport applications of approximately 200 celebrities, athletes, actors, politicians and their immediate families, musicians, game show contestants, members of the media corps, prominent business...

    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:

    Newsbusters ^ | 10/27/13 | Matt Hadro
    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...

    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:

    CNN's resident gun control advocate Piers Morgan faced off with Ted Nugent Monday, and as was expected, the bullets were flying. By the end of the first segment, Nugent told his arrogant adversary, "You're the perfect poster boy to stand up for the things that make no sense at all to common sense people" (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary): PIERS MORGAN, HOST: I don't understand, and I want you to tell me, in the least inflammatory way possible, why outside of hog hunting, which I get is a problem in Texas, anybody needs one...
