    Apparently, sombreros aren’t considered business casual at CNN. A gay ex-CNN staffer from Queens claims he was discriminated against and eventually fired for wearing extravagant ensembles that included mariachi suits, yellow track suits and cowboy hats to work. In a $65 million Brooklyn federal lawsuit filed Thursday, former CNN studio technician William Kane claims that a supervisor, John Silva, hated his taste in clothes and recommended that he transfer to the makeup or entertainment units. Kane asserts that several on-air personalities — including Anderson Cooper and former talk show host Piers Morgan — objected to Silva’s treatment of Kane and...

    Apparently, Piers Morgan had a TV show. It was on CNN. He was the host nobody watched on the network nobody watched. And on Friday they cut him loose. Hopefully, now he’ll go back to wherever people who talk funny come from. But as a parting shot, just before they turned out the lights, he lectured us benighted colonials on our nasty taste for guns. He told us we needed more gun control and would remain in the category of Third World savages until we do it. He said he did this because he loved us Americans, and wanted to...

    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...

    This week marks the end of Piers Morgan’s show on CNN and his run has been full of effusive praise for liberals and damnation of conservatives. Even before Morgan began his show, back in 2010, he tipped his hand in which ideological direction he wanted to take the show when he revealed who he most wanted to interview: “I’d love to do President Obama. I like what he’s done for the reputation of America abroad, which I’m not sure many Americans fully understand.” In contrast, Morgan viciously attacked gun rights advocates and Tea Party activists, while giving better treatment to...

He told fellow superior liberal Bill Maher several years ago that Alabama and Kansas are not “smart states.” And when you absolutely have to go to the Heartland, to places Timesmen call “flyover country,” you need to be aware you are dancing “the dance of the low-sloping foreheads.” That line got quite the chuckle on Maher’s cable show.

Handler began by saying that she had to "tolerate" the "nonsense" of Morgan completely ignoring her during commercial breaks. "You can't even pay attention for sixty seconds," she scoffed. "You're a terrible interviewer." "Well," Morgan shrugged, "You just weren't keeping my attention." "But that's not my problem," Handler retorted. "This is your show. You need to pay attention to the guests you invited on your show."...

    Like certain other TV networks, CNN likes gun control supporters. For more than a year, it allowed Piers Morgan to relentlessly and viciously attack the Second Amendment and anyone who supports it, until Morgan’s perennially low-rated show had cost the network so much in lost advertising revenue that keeping him on the air was no longer financially sustainable.As noted in the previous Alert story, CNN recently made the decision to cut “Piers Morgan Live” from its lineup. However, from the network’s perspective, the problem was the messenger, not the message.So, this week, with Morgan on the way out, CNN teamed with another anti-gun messenger—Sarah Brady, chairwoman...

That’s what I wanted to do in the first place, not reports on snow storms and that kind of thing.” Morgan said his producer, Jonathan Wald, has already made a deal to stick around. What does he think will replace his current show? “A news program of some kind,” he said. He also acknowledged that his campaign...

    Some people realized he only needed to be as rude as he was to me if he was wrong.Sunday’s announcement that Piers Morgan had lost his show at CNN was hardly unexpected. 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...

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.

Throughout the ordeal, Morgan remained defiant, telling the bowler to “bring it on” after each...

    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...

    Sarah Palin found a novel way to turn down an interview request from Piers Morgan on Friday, posting a picture on Facebook of a bear she had shot dead and a note saying she was busy. The former Alaska governor thanked chat show host Morgan for inviting her on his 'shambolic show' but added she was 'kind of busy right now'.

    CNN’s Piers Morgan, who as a top tabloid newspaper editor in Britain for years had his reporters ask tough questions and write hard-hitting exposés, thinks the U.S. press has been too easy on the Obama administration. “I would say actually they’ve been probably quite soft and could have gone harder. The financial crisis was inherited by the president, but he’s been there long enough to try to work it out himself. Unemployment’s still comfortably over 7 percent—really completely unacceptable,” said Morgan, 48. … “Issues like Benghazi have exposed some of the limitations of his leading from behind on foreign policy...

    Jonathan Wald has a difficult job. He’s executive producer of Piers Morgan’s show on CNN, a set of duties that include taming a volatile and sometimes rude television personality. In an “extract” from his new book “Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God and George Clooney” published in the Guardian, Morgan describes an incident when Wald’s counsel came into play. . . .

    An Internet site that reports on issues that emanate from within America’s news rooms said CNN’s Piers Morgan is on the out. But it’s not clear whether he will sever ties with CNN completely — or simply with his coveted prime time slot. FTVLive reported that sources say CNN head Jeff Zucker is “actively looking for a replacement for Piers Morgan.” Mr. Morgan in 2012 signed only a one-year contract extension, and that’s about to wrap, the site reported. Mr. Zucker would like to replace him with Katie Couric,

    After George Zimmerman was found not guilty for the murder of Trayvon Martin, there was an effort by the Buckeye Firearms Foundation to raise money to get Zimmerman another gun. They raised over $12,000 for Zimmerman, and on CNN tonight, Ken Hanson defended his group’s aim to Piers Morgan, who repeatedly confronted him about how he would feel if Zimmerman went out with his gun and shot someone again. Hanson explained it wasn’t just a gun they got for Zimmerman, it was ammunition, training, personal protection, and a few other things so he could defend himself and his family. Morgan...

    Morgan then invited Elder onto his show, where the two debated Jeantel and the importance of the Zimmerman trial to black America. “I was, because you weren’t doing her any favors by condescendingly trying to convince her that she’s a victim,” Elder said. “This is a young lady who didn’t apply herself, a 19-year-old who is still in high school. Instead of saying young lady, take this as an opportunity to take stock of your life, you’re treating her like she was a victim. And that’s how you’re doing this whole thing about race and racism. Seven thousand murders last...

    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.
  • Piers Morgan Conducts Riveting Interview With Trayvon Martin’s Friend, Witness Rachel Jeantel

    bombshell interview with an anonymous Zimmerman trial juror tonight with an exclusive chat with the witness everyone has been waiting to hear from since the verdict came down: Trayvon Martin‘s friend Rachel Jeantel. Jeantel, who created a media firestorm with her highly-polarizing testimony towards the beginning of the trial, appeared on Piers Morgan Live alongside her attorney. She described her reaction to Zimmerman’s acquittal as “disappointed, upset and angry” and called the jury’s assessment of what happened “just B.S.” Asked about what Trayvon Martin was like as a friend, Jeantel described him as a “calm, chill, loving person” and said...

    We all know the story of American independence, don't we? A rugged frontier people became increasingly tired of being ruled by a distant elite. A group calling themselves Patriots were especially unhappy about being taxed by a parliament in which they were unrepresented. When, in 1775, British redcoats tried to repress them, a famous Patriot called Paul Revere rode through the night across eastern Massachusetts, crying 'The British are coming'. The shots that were fired the next day began a war for independence which culminated the following year in the statehouse of Philadelphia, when George Washington and others, meeting under...
