    On September 24 Daily Mail editor Piers Morgan claimed that Pope Francis used his speech to the U.S. Congress to eviscerate “gun-toting, blood-thirsty…bigots” vying for conservative leadership and suggested the Pope’s approach shows Democrats the way to defeat Republicans in coming elections.

    Dr Walter Palmer is a dentist in the human happiness business. His website, at the River Bluff Dental clinic in Minnesota, says he ‘strives to create dazzling smiles’. For 27 years this self-anointed kindly man has showered his patients with extraordinary care and comfort, ensuring they leave his surgery immeasurably more self-confident than when they entered. His official photograph on the website exudes almost Saintly virtue; Palmer’s own gleaming dentures shining beatifically beneath his warm, bespectacled, twinkling eyes. But there’s another side to Dr Palmer. A side he alludes to right at the very end of a Q&A on the...

    'This is an awful night for Lafayette, an awful night for Louisiana, an awful night for the United States,' said Governor, and presidential candidate, Bobby Jindal at the scene of America’s latest mass shooting. His voice wobbled, his lips trembled and his eyes welled up as he dug deep into the reservoirs of statesmanlike emotion. 'This is a time for us to come together,' he said, 'What we can do now is pray. We can hug these families, shower them with love, thoughts and prayers.' All fine words, of course. Exactly what a Governor should say when people in his...

    DURHAM, NC, March 20, 2014 ( – During a national media blitz, the Duke University student who makes pornographic films to pay her tuition has said her experience in the industry has left her feeling “empowered” and uplifted. But an anti-pornography activist has posted a shocking video graphically undermining her claims. “My experience in porn has been nothing but supportive, exciting, thrilling, and empowering,” Miriam Weeks, who revealed that she performs under the name Belle Knox, wrote on the feminist website last month. “For me, shooting pornography brings me unimaginable joy.” “It is my artistic outlet: my love, my...

    When famous people die these days, there is an irritating modern tendency towards hyperbole. Everyone even remotely well known who passes away is instantly, breathlessly propelled via social media into the once rarefied stratosphere of ‘great’ or ‘finest’. Insincere platitudes of alarming extravagance rain down on the heads of often thoroughly undeserving individuals. Sometimes, though, it is deserved. ‘Beau Biden was quite simply the finest man any of us has ever known,’ said Vice President Joe Biden about his son, who has died from brain cancer aged 46. I knew Beau well, interviewing him numerous times when I worked for...

He'll pose for some photos in the Oval Office and probably crack a lame joke that leaves America's toughest political journalists guffawing sycophantic gales of fake laughter.

Tonight, the same celebrity icon will take his beautiful, equally famous wife to a basketball game in Brooklyn; the public will go crazy, while...

    Race in America is set against the backdrop of horrible historic realities, minefields few want to cross -- just ask Representative Paul Ryan. But if we are ever to focus on children who, for no fault of their own, are often raised in environments where a stable father is missing, violence is predictable, education is eschewed, drugs are prevalent and dependency threatens freedom; we must stand up and speak facts before another generation of children are lost. Racism is the normal explanation for the decline of the black family, but that analysis does not hold up. Thomas Sowell has shown...

The ratings for the coveted 9 p.m. time slot were abysmal, dropping last week to just 270,000 viewers — about one-eighth of what Fox News’s Megyn Kelly got in the same time slot. Some, such as Variety magazine, have speculated that the low ratings are due to Morgan’s single-minded push for gun control. That might have something to do with it, but much more is going on. In...

According to The New York Times, Zucker has been watching Morgan's show hit new ratings lows and is ready to go a different way with the 9 p.m. slot. Morgan spoke to the coming end by admitting he's "been taking a bath in the ratings." He added: "Look, I'm a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who...

    CNN has axed Piers Morgan from his prime time interview slot after years of terrible ratings and lacklustre reviews, punctuated by flashes of controversy as the spiky former newspaper editor sparred with celebrities and clashed with US culture. Mr Morgan, the British former editor of the Daily Mirror, styled himself as an outspoken and aggressive critic of US gun legislation, engaged in public spats with potential celebrity guests and was an ubiquitous presence on Twitter, sniping at enemies and stirring up debate. Here are some of his more controversial moments: (VIDEO-AT-LINK) â—Ź It is hard to imagine just what Mr...

    You may remember where you were sitting or standing when you heard this news. Or, given Piers Morgan’s pitiful ratings, you may have to be reminded that he has a show at all. In either case, here’s some good news for a Monday: Crusading against our Second Amendment rights has finally cost Piers Morgan his primetime gig at CNN. I received a return call from Mr. Morgan and was prepared for an endless argument over my assumptions. Not so. His show, he conceded, was not performing as he had hoped and was nearing its end.“It’s been a painful period...

    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.

    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 with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a...

    (Reuters) — Piers Morgan, one of the biggest names in British media and a CNN television host, has been questioned by London police in connection with allegations of phone-hacking at the Daily Mirror tabloid he used to edit. Morgan, a former judge on "America's Got Talent" show who replaced Larry King on CNN in 2011, said in a statement on Thursday he had been interviewed by officers after voluntarily attending a police station in December. The 48-year-old, who has always denied any involvement in phone hacking, was quizzed as part of wider investigations into illegal practices by journalists at Rupert...

    CNN host Piers Morgan says people under the age of 25 should not be allowed to buy guns, in light of recent shootings around the country. Wading into the national gun debate, Morgan took to Twitter this week to argue about what he called the "absurdity" of the Second Amendment. He pointed out that the recent Maryland mall shooter, Darion Marcus Aguilar, was 19-years-old. He reasoned that people can't drink alcohol before the age of 21 or rent a car before turning 25, so the government should establish similar standards for gun ownership. "The 19yr-old mall shooter in Maryland was...

    Yesterday during another one of his illogical gun rants, CNN host Piers Morgan suggested that because many mass shootings are carried out by people under 25, that we should ban gun purchases and ownership of guns for everyone under 25. Given the young ages of most mass/random shooters in America, I'd make it illegal for anyone under 25 to buy a gun of any kind. — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 27, 2014 He also tried to compare owning a gun to renting a car. It's almost impossible to rent a car under the age of 25 in America - why...
