Tiring of Piers Morgan

It turns out that people who aren’t fans of guns are even getting tired of Piers Morgan’s gun control tirades. The New Republic does an entire piece on what a fake he is on this issue and how he’s trying to re-write his history when he really didn’t care about such topics. Piling on, the reporter also adds a compilation of the five most obnoxious moments on the Piers Morgan show of the last year.

I think his ratings show that others in the media aren’t the only ones tiring of his antics. I’m amazed that CNN has allowed him to keep dragging their brand down as long as they have.

    Here is the thing, and the whole of the thing: I’d never heard of this guy, never seen his show, before he started ranting on guns after the Newtown shooting, and that is why he started ranting on guns, to gain attention for his pathetically bad interview show.

    CNN runs at a gym I frequent in the evenings, so the only times I’ve ever seen Morgan’s show is while on a treadmill, unable to change the channel.

    He is a lousy interviewer, inadequately prepared to ask questions based on any knowledge of the subject, unprepared or unable to assimilate information provided by his guests, and he interrupts his guests constantly in a very annoying way.

    He gained some publicity for a bit with his schtick, and now is sinking back to the obscurity from which he briefly arose.

    You know that old saying “shit floats”, well CNN seems to think that means they’ll rise to the top in ratings. Which explains Piers Morgan.

    Evidently Britain is still miffed about the whole revolution thing, and Morgan is proof, why else would he be over here rather than in his wonderfully gun and crime free homeland?

      20% VAT on top of income tax as well as the $9/gal gasoline and the tiny cramped quarters of England. Those are just a few reasons why the brits love to come here. Brits really are the worst house guests.

    Piers Morgan likes guns just fine. Especially machine guns. As long as he can use them to murder Jeremy Clarkson.

    Straight from the horse’s mouth……well, some type of horse’s orifice anyway.

    Sigh. Too bad it’s not just loudmouths on the left who are fakes about the gun issue.

    I love, love, love Piers Morgan! Every time he opens his yap, the NRA gets 10,000 new members! He’s like the Bull Connor of the anti-gunners–so over the top that he spurs the good guys into action.

    Long may he keep spewing his bullshit; it’s fertilizer for our side.

    • Bitter says:

      Do you have a source for that claim on NRA numbers? I don’t mind when you say that you suspect it helps the cause, but if you’re going to make a statement of fact for something that’s not easily proven, please provide a source or frame your statement as the opinion it really is.

      • Amiable Dorsai says:

        That was hyperbole. I suppose I should have added a tag.

        I really do think that Morgan is a loose cannon who does more damage to his own cause than he does to ours–if only because he is out front about wanting to ban all guns, as opposed to “reasonable” regulation. That catches the attention of people who might otherwise think their guns are safe from the next round of “reasonable” regulation.

    …and that is why nobody can trust CNN. It is clear to all what this guy is and does. Ya can roll it in glitter, but it’s still…
