READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
As we head into the final weekend before the premiere of "Piers Morgan Tonight" (Monday, January 17, 9pmET/PT – and internationally), here's a look at the staff and crew behind the show.
Also, pay attention to the song – you may be hearing it a lot.
I'll be sure and NOT watch you until Madonna is on.... oh wait I guess that means I'll never watch you!
Piers is nothing like I had expected. He's kind, respectful and very intelligent. Give him time and he'll overtake Larry. Rock on Piers. I don't watch the Majors anymore. I'm a cable guy at 8pm CST!!!
I couldn't disagree with you more. He is becoming like every other CNN host, a ranting liberal trying to twist the words of republicans and shut them down. How original. I had hope for him in the beginning but his views and purpose are so blatant he is not providing a well balanced show. He is masquerading as some referee of justice, thinking he's calling people out but really he is as biased as the rest of them trying to sway public opinion toward his own personal belief (during election season). How noble of him.
I'm enjoying most of the shows very much - I don't expect to be enthralled in equal amounts by all of the guests, but there are enough fascinating ones to keep me watching. (Bill Maher could appear nightly and I'd never get bored.) However, I'd like to join other viewers who suggest that Piers let his subjects finish their answers before setting the next question. Interrupting the speaker doesn't keep the pace up or keep the guest on track; it just serves to irritate the viewer, who can't hear properly what either interviewer or subject is saying..
Piers, I enjoy your show so much, this is one show my husband and I watch together, Other night show host could take lessons on how to interview a person, You ask just what we want to know without being too personal, Keep up the good work. Myra
Intelligent? Hard to say. Ignorant? Well yes. I would have thought that anyone educated in Britain would know better than to call the people of Afghanistan "Afghanis." Afghanis are a unit of currency. It is like calling an American a dollar. Of course he is one of legions who are ignorant on the issue, but then most of the others were educated in the US and that would explain some of it. But I assume that even most Americans can read and write, so they too should know better–to say nothing of a cable anchor. Oh, hell what am I saying–hez a cable anchor. No wonder.
I am a staunch liberal. However, Piers Morgan went way over the line of decency with Christine O'Donnell.
It was bad journalism
I thought I would view the Piers Morgan Tonight show for awhile to see how the transition went. He's definitely not in the same class as the Walter Cronkits, Larry King etc. The commentary shows of later day had much more class and
dignity eminating from the network as well as the employees. Piers seems to be learning a bit how to control his aggitation towards guests that he inatly displays for some reason when he's interviewing them. Having said that, upcoming personalities these days just don't seem to have the same tact and professionalism that was so evident with people like Cronkit, Art Linkletter etc. and there were many. It seems to be all about ratings, arguments, sensationism etc. that over runs integrity. I wish they would go back to school and really learn what professional journalism is all about in the fullest sense of the word and take a few manners and tact as well. Art Linkletter was asked in an interview what he thought of the world today. He responded that the world seems to be more 'vulger' today and he couldn't have expressed it better. They could learn many lessons from the few great ones from the past. Things weren't perfect in their day either but they sure had more professionism in the greater sense of the word. Cheers.
cool? kind? you need to have your head examined. he's a loud mouth bully. his interviews are nothing but a platform for CNN's views. he is a JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes and this Kind and Wonderful man is Dodging his Little Mess. How quaint not even to mention it and give everyone else the business. Way to go Mr. Morgan.
You're as blind as you are ignorant
I like Piers Morgan. I love that he is fighting for gun control. Finally someone who isn't going to bow down to the NRA.
emaail doesnt work. I am dismayed this day. Piers Morgan isn't brother to my friend JP Morgan? Doo you mind telling me whom this person is enarmoured of for over a few minutes of time–and he's always going out to dinner.
I eat dollar pizza to save money and I am requiring a room and all amenities. SO COME THROUGH! C ome thru cnn with the past due year's salary. COme thru , Your Grace, with the daily codicil. COmed thru, C Hase Manhattan and let em live per the beauty queen mom, Mrs. Morgan of new york. COME tHRU abc AND LET ME DEVOUR THE TAKE
gET OUT OF SEPHORA AND ALL BLDGS OF MINE, POLICE! 1500 BROADWAY IS ALL MINE-GET OUT. yOU DONT COLLECT A PENNY ON IT AND I HOPE CHASE KKNOWS THIS-I DID NOT AND WILL NOT SELL TO POLICE. THEY ARE NOT GOOD. TREATY MAYOR'S OFFICE–COME THRU MR BLOOMBERG. TIME IS UP. GEORGIA LYNN JONES
I think it was cruel and digusting that Morgan had to announce that a woman guest at the royal wedding had to have her nose repaired because of her drug use. How pertinent was it to ridicule someone in front of a billion people or just one person? I always watch CNN and I am ashamed of your choice of Morgan to be on your network., he is rude , demeaning, and doesn't listen, only promotes himself.
Can anyone at CNN stop Piers from interrupting his guests as they answer his questions. It only shows that he is
not listening to the answer, but thinking of his next question feels the need to ask it before he forgets it.
I agree with Janet, Piers tends to be rude with his interruptions,but most of them do. What bothers me
about him his speech, it's like he has lemon or something in his mouth. There are many others such as
John Lemon that is a pleasure to listen to; CNN areyou listening?
Piers is rude, I repeat, rude and thinks he is absolute greatest. I no longer watch him.
i am a author and i have a full time job i watch piers report on the state of america wendays or tuedays night and after listing to so many people talk about it the only sure way to get the enconomy back on its feet is to give the money to the people if the goverment would stop saving companies and save the people this country would be back up on its feet in no time simply send every working person between 2000 and 5000 dollars and after people take care of some of there bills and pay off a few things then the would start shopping again creating jobs to meet the demand and in no time at all getting the country back up on its feet hey it may not sound like the best idea but what else has worked up to this point right nothing
Good to see Pierce Morgan get interupted tonight similar to the way he does it to others who do not agree with him. Perhaps CNN told him not to interupt the guests.Why have guests on the show if they cannot voice their opinions?Pierce Morgan is no Larry King. He is too opinionated.
I used to watch mr. Morgans show but his gun control stance offends every thoughtful American so when I see Him on I turn the channel thats got to brings ad money NOT
I used to watch mr. Morgans show but his gun control stance offends every thoughtful American so when I see Him on I turn the channel thats got to brings ads and revenure I feel I cant sponser your advertisers when you have this anti American stuff broadcasted
I don't think they have to change the gun law in America. l just think they should apply credit scores for everyone who needs to buy a gun. It's very hard to buy a car home or get cell phone or anything in America if you don't have a credit score so they should apply the same system to guns
Piers Morgan is forthright and speaks his mind, he says what a lot of people need to hear and is great. My friends from England went to Florida on vacation with their only son, he and his friend were both murdered by a teenager...who should not have had the chance to get a gun.. so many innocent people get killed and families suffer, for what.... I'm very angry that people feel it is necessary to allow assault rifles at all into the public domain,these are weapons of war. What is wrong with this country,
Good luck Piers! BRIT in America for 3.5 yrs and unemployed. Perhaps you can give me an interview or a job. That would make good TV.
Anyway good luck and enjoy this opportunity!
Larry was good but Piers will be great. I do not think that there will be any way I will miss any of his shows. He has a charming personality, quit wit, great humor, nice smile. Welcome Piers!!
So far, so good. Piers is intelligent and it shows. What I mean is that he asks intelligent questions and we actually get to learn a thing or two about his guests. The show is about his guests, not him and that is more than I can say about other hosts. CNN has moved up a notch. Great interviews so far. Continue the good work and best of luck.
LOVE THE SHOW!!!
You did a great interview with jesse ventura and did not back up one bit. jesse is i nteresting but his facts are dubious. He tends to use his size to impress h is interviewers. And last night, piers, you didn't flinch and actually exposed jesse as someone operating without any hard facts. You were great. I am now a fan. Just don't suck up to Oprah again.
One of Larry's first recommendations to Piers was to "let your guest respond to your questions without interrupting them", just listen, then follow up. Well, Piers has yet to follow this excelent suggestion. Recent example, interview with Mitt Romney. Romney is such a low-key person, yet Piers found it necessary to interrupt his answer concerning
Mass. Health Plan question several times. The atmosphere was so congenial, that it was unnecessary to be intrusive.
Piers has alot to learn, and I hope CNN management does not extend or renew his contract.
We natraulized Americans are offended By piers morgans assault on Americas freedoms that we fought britains to obtain I refuse to watch or sponser anythings Mr.Morgan is attached to so lets see how much the Real American companies will invest into a national traitor
Love Piers Morgan! Love the show " Piers Morgan Tonight "!
PIERS MORGAN IS NO LARRY KING
The first interview I saw Larry King do 25 years
ago, I said, that if Larry would follow that path, he
would be around for as long as he wanted to be. He
never used I or me. He kept himself out of the picture
and kept focus on the guest.
In Piers first interview with Oprah Winfrey, it was hard to
tell who was the greatest. Don’t give much weight to this
article since I am not fond of Prima Donnas. I know that Oprah is the Greatest, but I never did like her greatness. Read more Internet Free Press.
I agree...Piers will never achieve Larry Kings stature. His own arrogance and ego will prevent it.
If I would like to become a contributor to your show how does a Lady support a Chap like yourself? In my own special way?
The show will be a dog! Morgan is too arrogant and and filled with his own self importance. The show will be gone by summer.
Looking forward to something new. Enjoyed your Anderson Cooper interview. Especially liked the white sox observation.
i love piers morgan he's a straight up guy
Another British elitist. Howard Stern is right; within 6 month nobody will be watching him
Horrible lineup first week. Won't be watching. Sounds boring and the commercial Oprah saying "you are good" is really off the wall. I never miss Larry King's show and before then use to listen to him on the radio. I hope you come up with a better lineup.
Lame song. I could do much better but then I'm dead.
I will watch tonight to see Oprah but will not watch Howard Stern and especially not Ricky Gervais after the obnoxious spectable and poor taste of his emceeing the Golden Globe Awards. His last statement about thanking God was the last straw. He is commercially dead in my opinon. Now I will write the advertisers.
Is there a weekly email list of scheduled guests for the show?
Love the show already, love the opening and the casual setting...do not care for the potted plants..looks like qvc, or an auction show,,,dump them
If this is Piers' set – then where was the first interview (Oprah) filmed?
CNN, will you please publish on the UK internet when we can view Piers Morgan her in Britain, and further more why not gets the British Press to carry a daily CNN schedule of programmes, because more and more of us will be watching all CNN in the future. Go for it Piers.
Unless Mr Morgan improves his diction and elocution ...a lot of listeners will be changing channels! Some of us have no idea what he's saying or giggling about!!!
I thought Piers did an ok job on his interview with Oprah last night, but was disappointed that he let her control the entire interview. I never thought I'd see Piers ever kiss up to anyone like he did to Oprah. I never had an opinion of Oprah one way or another. However, I do admire her rise to fame and fortune. I can remember when she was on the talk show in Baltimore many years ago with Richard Sher on People are Talking. I never could have imagined that she would have risen to one of the most powerful women in the world. However, she now has a serious "God Complex". She thinks of herself as the second coming of Jesus Christ ! Shame on you Oprah !!! Very disappointing, indeed !!!
Piers Morgan is fun to watch and listen to. I was excited to hear je was taking over the time slot when Larry King left. I missed the January 17th premeire. Will it air again so that I can see it?
I think Piers Morgan is absolutely great. He has a great sense of humor and keeps the conversation interesting, lively and thought provoking. I will be tuning in regularly.
I love Piers – have been a huge fan for years. Loved his show with Oprah – he's a real gentleman. Gets the interview done without being obnoxious. Can't wait to see the Ricky Gervais interview – I think he (Ricky) is brilliant – true British sharp wit and intelligence. And no, I'm not a Brit! Go you Piers.
I have just watched the first episode with Oprah and Piers is of to a great start. Congrats to Piers to the new chapter of his life. I wish him the best of luck
When I initirally heard that Piers would be starting his new show, I was thrilled. Not only is he a class act, he is highly intelligent, asks interesting questions and has an innate ability to maintain his diginity under pressure (just watch his former appearance on Celebrity Apprentice).
With respect to his decision to "ban" Madonna from the show, I agree. While on one hand, I have immense respect for her as a business woman and focused marketing genius, I have always cringed while watching her interviews, mostly because I've NEVER received the REAL Madonna. Watch every interview and you will see a completely different person with a different dialect every single time. Additionally, she assumes differing positions on various topics, depending upon the type of audience. Simply put: you will never get the real Madonna, and I don't think Piers will either. So yes, I agree with his decision to ban her, as I think the interview would clearly be a waste of time and BORING. As for Piers.....he's brilliant.
Enjoying your show, Piers, but please stop interrupting your guests so much. Often they are not allowed to complete their responses to your questions before you interrupt with something entirely off the subject of their what they are attempting to say to answer your question. The interruptions will quickly become annoying to your viewers.Thanks
I thought I was the only one... :/
My thoughts exactly...interrupts waaaay to much and laughs too much! Otherwise ok
Michele Chabot said exactly what I wanted to. I never watch FOX, cannot stand Bill O'Reilly interupting. It is very distracting. not to mention rude. Fabulous show, very refreshing. Just please do not interupt. Best wishes for a long career with CNN. Brilliant.
Condoleeza Rice is still delusional about WMD. She's still spouting the same disproven Bush line for plunging US into economic hardship and costing hundreds of thousands Iraq deaths and thousands of US military deaths. The woman belongs in jail.
So does Bush.
The show Pier's Morgan airs Dubai UAE time at 12midnight I have been watching it .I enjoyed the interview with Oprah and Howard Stern Pier's Morgan is great!! but it gets too late at night to be able to watch on a daily basis.I would like to know if it is repeated the following day and at what time.
Last three nights I have watched Mr. Morgan's interviews. I really enjoyed all of them. I think he is fresh and is a good replacement for Larry King, which I really enjoyed for years. Mr. Morgan's show is now on my list of DVR recordings, so I would not miss any. One comment – Mr. Morgan, once you ask a qeustion, please let your guests finish their sentences and not intrupt. Great program overall.
This guy did the dirty on a UK army regiment through or as an editor on a newspaper telling lies about them and got caught out had to resign and resurfaced in the USA on tv,i wish i could getaway with things like that.
Enjoyed the interview with Howard Stern. Piers almost lost control a couple of times when Howard turned on his persona. Great interview all in all. I watched last night as well. Does Piers really not know what gumbo is? If not have him go to FoodTV.com and do the research. I understand it takes a while to make, but is worth it.
2011 is an exciing year, best 3: Piers Morgan, Brad & Angelina and The New Apprentice! We absolutely love you Piers Morgan. We can not wait every night what you will say or do.. and what you will ask your exciting guests in the coming weeks, months, years...More power to you!!!
As an African-American female I was excited when I learned that two of the first three guests would be African-American females. I commend you for that, Piers. I enjoyed the interview with Oprah Winfrey; however, in the interview with Condoleeza Rice, I found Piers to be arrogant. He rarely allowed Ms. Rice to complete a thought. Finally she had had enough and told him that she would like to complete her thought. You go girl!
I understand the Rice interview for demographic reasons, but....Y...A....W...N.
You DO get ONE mulligan your first week ;-)
I agree with some of the earlier comments re: please let guests respond to questions without interrupting them with your next comment/question. I have enjoyed the array of guests during the first week.
I've watched all of the shows, now. He finally has started to let the guests answer the questions. I think he had a bunch of questions and he wanted to get through them. Anyway, I thought he did a much better job tonight!
What are feeding on, now you are in the USofA. Your going soft with your questions. Dig deeper lad and show what a true Brit former editor of a red-tope newspaper can do.
Love your new show. You have a non-threatening way of engaging your guests in adult conversation. Very informative and illuminating. Keep on.
My humble opinion Piers Morgan , seems to be a very impatient lad: I realize within 1 hour with plenty of Advertising interruption timeing is of the essence. He must led some of his Celebrity finish the question, this certainly was a gift Larry King had.So the Mustard has not been cut yet for him to be matching the King. H.A
I agree with Horst that Piers needs to let the celebrity finish the question. He seems intent on asking all the questions without getting all the answers. We are more interested in the answers than the questions. Please let the celebrity finish his thoughts before going to the next question. I really want to like this show but I am getting frustrated by not hearing the full answer. Maybe in Britain, it is acceptable to always interrupt but that is not the way it is usually done in US.
I can't bear watching him – so very full of himself. My favorite is Anderson Cooper – a truly fine and one of a kind individual. Listens carefully to the people he questions and never ever interrupts – at times one wishes he would. His interview with Piers was difficult to watch – listening to Morgan state it was up to him to bring life to Cnn. Says who? Piers? We were just fine without him and CNN is my station – the first thing I watch and the last.
I absolutely love the show....Piers is my "fav". I saw the the interview with Oprah and I do not recall the focus being taken away from her by Piers over using the word "I". By the way Don, Piers is a Brit....... duh!! There is absolutely nothing wrong with his diction!!!...... it is certainly better than "yo man, what up"? The art of proper speaking has gone the way of the cave man and the majority of Americans do not know the definition of a dangling participle or when it is appropriate to use was versus were–subject must always agree with noun!! I am not an English teacher but I was taught by one of the best who incidentially will celebrate her 100th birthday in a few days and is still as sharp as she was when I was her student 50 years ago. (She taught three generations of my family).
No one can replace Larry King any more than Regis can be replaced. This show is a refeshing change and just like everything in the American culture times change and we go forward. Absolutely no one interrupts a guest more than O"Reilly–it is his way or the highway and if you do not agree with his views, tuff. I always felt mentally drained when I chose to watch him and stopped doing so a number of years ago. IIf you do not care for Piers--–there is a little button on your remote-you know the one-use it and move on.
Larry knew when it was time to retire and did so graciously. Piers, you are the best in my book–love you on America Gots Talent and love you on this show, so carry on.
Followup to post at 5:02 a.m. I deliberately misspelled and entered some duplicate words in this-–did you spot them??-if so, good for you.
CONGRATULATIONS PIERS-DOING GREAT
PIERS SHOW- EXCELLENT
Piers is one of the worst interviewers I have ever seen. I don't know how he got this gig.
He cuts off the interviewee EVERY time. he asks a question and doesn't even let the interviewee finish the answer before he cuts him/ her off with the next question. seems like he is constantly thinking or anticipating the questions without even listening to the answers.
Piers watch others like Larry King, Conan, Howard Stern etc. and learn. if you actually let the other person speak you might just do fine.
The best example is the interview with Rudy Juliani. Piers cut him off EVERY time. watch it and you'll see what I'm talking about. there's nothing worse than listening to the interviewee speak about something very interesting only to have the interviewer cut him/ her off after a few seconds.
Piers you are a real breath of fresh air.. I am watching you inteRview Joel Olsteen and what a wonderful cconversation. You are all making me smile..Keep up the good work, and remember Jesus loves you even when you make mistakes, he is your Heavenly Father .................................EXCELLENT SHOWS GREAT GUESTS
I did forget to mention you were cutting Rudy off a lot...maybe you should let who you are interviewing finish what they are saying, it makes for a more informative conversation,but you are doing GREAT
What happened to the Rod Stewart interview that was supposed to be on Jan. 27th. I waited all week for it and was so disapointed!!
The show is spiraling down faster than I expected. I now doubt that it will even last until June.
I had hoped someone from your team would have acknowledged my January 20 message of felicitations, if not you personally. I'm accustomed to being ignored for my point of view, but Canadian Prime Minister Harper has personally acknowledged several of my controversial messages, but not saying anything publicly. The Apostolic Nuncio to CanaDa and France have also replied to my message, but never any Bible Fundamentalist Christian TV personalities. In 1985 I was invited to lunch with The Apostolic Nuncio to CanaDa, a very rare invitation for anybody, so I would imagine the Vatican has a file somewhere.
I know how people hate hearing "I told you so" but in my last writing to you, I included this,
On September 13, 1976, page 3A, with the header, ´Prophet Chooses Park For Vigil´ The Kansas City Times recorded and reported on my visit to the City and the Republican National Convention. They report, in addition to other specifics, I was serving notice The Writing is on the Wall.
"He came to town for the Republican National Convention and will stay until the election in November to do God's bidding: To tell the world, from Kansas City, that this Country has been found wanting and it's days are numbered"..............................He gestured toward a gleaming church dome. "The gold dome is the symbol of Babylon," he said.
It is only with the benefit of hindsight, 35 years later, America and the world are only now beginning to see the Vision taking shape in the real world. This Public record and Marker of Time can be ignored, dismissed and depreciated, but it cannot be changed. The fact The Kansas City Times/Star do not acknowledge my occasional reminders this is in their archive speaks volumes.
What you and all the news media are reporting on in Egypt Today is The Revelation in real time in the shaking of the powers of this world which has long been foretold, reserved for the appointed Time, and is the continuation of the Vision recorded in The Kansas City Times September 13, 1976.
Working in the media for so long, you know the contrast in the image of a long hair, bearded, hippy looking Canadian standing at the Podium of The President of The United States in the Revolutionary Spirit of '76, as all those Republicans in the lobby of The Crown Centre Hotel were looking up to that very spot expecting President Ford to be there. Such a scene has never happened before or since, and ABC, CBS & NBC will have some archived video of that scene.
Going through that as it was happening was all new to me and a complete surprise. I could never have imagined that scenario in my Life.
The Revolutionary Spirit of '76 is now the Spirit of the Year of the Lord 2011.

I did get this reply from The Terminator,

Thank you for taking the time to send me your kind words of support. Your encouragement gave me a big boost, and it reminds me that we are moving in the right direction.
I am working hard to improve California's future and make progress in a difficult budget year. We've tackled politically risky things that no one wanted to touch in the past, and to me, that's progress. We now have the potential to make a positive difference in the lives of future generations by confronting problems that have been put off for many years: building up our infrastructure, reforming health care and education, and finally fixing our broken budget system.
Again, thank you for your kind words of encouragement.
Finally, a host who is intelligent and erudite with his interviews.
Plus, giving a more international aspect with his interviews.
I always felt that "Larry King Live" should have been renamed "Larry King Dead".
Keep up the good work Piers. Enjoy your interviews.
Piers Morgan is obviously a brilliant person. His well-crafted questions and witty banter truly challenge his celebrity guests to rise to their highest intellectual levels demonstrating to the viewer how and why they have achieved so much in their careers and lives. I wish Piers good luck but I don't think he needs it. He's interesting and so are his guests.
Is there a media campaign going on to destroy Piers. I think he is great.
watching it over here in the UK on CNN, since Egypt has there been any shows? Everytime it says' Piers Morgan' tonight there's news for an hour showing the same footage of Egypt ...
There has only been a partial show with Barbara Walters last night, otherwise, it has been about Egypt.
With regard to Egypt, I think that to avert further violence, Mubarak in conjunction with the United Nations should assign an Ombudsman in the form of a person or small group representative of the people to conduct new elections for local and national government – immediately! On a lighter note, afterword, someone from Egyptian TV should present a new national reality show contest focusing on some aspect of Egyptian culture that will highlight neighborhoods.
I like Piers but he needs to let his guests talk. I was very interested in Condoleezza Rice's interview. Unfortunately Piers kept interrupting her answers with his comments. I wanted to hear what she had to say not HIM!
Help your DVR watchers. I have given you a season pass to record every *new* episode. This wonderful feature doesn't work on your show, because you don't submit the information of the originally recording, so even though I have my DVR programmed to record one show a day. I get 3 of the same shows recorded EVERYDAY! IF this isn't fixed, I'll have to stop recording the show entirely, it will eat up all my memory.
And just as CNN Larry King show you don't List your guest of the evening, in the information screen, why?
Lets get off to a good start and fine tune what American wants. How many DVR users are out there? I can assure you MANY!
OMG! No Interviews again AFTER promising to show Colin Firth tonight. HOW ABOUT A COMPROMISE? Tell us all about Egypt on the early showing live AND THEN put the INTERVIEWS on the slot reserved for the replays!!!!!!
We last had a Piers Morgan Tonight on Monday 31st Jan [ CNN in South Africa]... They show it scheduled...but then we get more of the Egypt crisis...and no apology...what`s happening? i`m waiting for Colin Firth and co.....
Piers Morgan is a great interviewer and has a lovely demeanor. I love his new program and watch every night. It's one of my must-sees now.
U.N. Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday sharply criticized the U.N. expert on Palestine for suggesting the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States were orchestrated by the U.S. government. The U.N. chief criticized the official in a speech before the body's Human Rights Council in Geneva.
It is very rare for the U.N. chief to publicly criticize one of the organization's own officials. And he seemed dismayed by remarks made by the U.N. expert on Palestine, Richard Falk, who cast doubt on al-Qaida's role in the 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.
In his speech to the U.N. Human Rights Council, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon acknowledged it was up to the council to decide whether the experts it appoints should continue in their jobs.
He said he respected the independence of the investigators, but Mr. Ban added that he could not condone irresponsible behavior that undermines the council and the United Nations.
"Recently, the Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories Occupied Since 1967 suggested there was an 'apparent cover-up' in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States," said Ban. "I want to tell you, clearly and directly, I condemn this sort of inflammatory rhetoric. It is preposterous, an affront to the memory of the more than 3,000 people who died in that tragic terrorist attack."
The expert, Princeton University Professor Emeritus Richard Falk, was appointed by the Human Rights Council to report on Israeli actions in the Palestinian territories in March 2008. He has been criticized by Israel, and by Jewish and human rights groups for his controversial views.
The Israelis and the other Jewish organizations that want Professor Falk fired, view him as a "self-hating Jew" or one who dares to criticize Israel and their policies.
Since the Secretary General of the United Nations has singled him out and publicly smeared him, this experienced gentle soul at 83 would make an excellent guest on your show.
I caught most of the interview last night with Anthony Hopkins. What a powerful testimony he gave regarding his asking for help to stop his drinking and how instantly something happened and he has not had a drink since. He acknowledged a power greater than himself. That power was God, answering his prayer. I think that his testimony will help thousands of individuals that watched the interview and heard him speak on this subject. Whether he knows it are not, he will have helped so many people. The hymn comes to mind, "How Great Thou Art" We don't have to understand how God works, only that he does perform miracles everyday. Hope someone tells Mr. Hopkins that he did a great service to God,perhaps not intending to, by what he said. Wonderful show.
Nancy, reading your comment, I'm sorry I missed that show, but I do have a sense of it through your eyes. Unfortunately in searching a place on this site to see the whole interview, I could not find it. I did find a snippit on Matt Daemon and Richard Burton. I'm sure most people would be more interest in knowing what Anthony Hopkins thought of them than what he thinks of God. That's the world we live in.
Thank you for your kind remarks.
I like the interviews by Piers – however, I wish that he would not be so quick to interrupt interviews in order to present his next question. After a while, it will almost seem like a grinding rudeness on his part.
Did I miss the Colin Firth interview. I believe I checked every night, but it was pre-empted because of the trouble in Egypt.
I hoped it may be on this weekend, but Piers was interviewing Uhura & Policewoman instead. What Gives????
Give us Colin Firth now.
Why are my comments made to disappear from appearing in your Blog?
They are still there. You just can't find them. There are so many messages out there now. I see at least 3 on the page that I am on now.
Actually Smitty several times I have posted a comment which did not appear in this blog. M 1st comment here on February 2 establishes that fact. I liked Tonight's show but made reasonable comments about Queen Noor and Fareed Zakaria which did not appear here.
I know my comments appearing here on February 2 & 5 were long and different than most of the others. Maybe they put a limit on the length of a comment, wanting this blog to be more like Twitter. I had to go into more detail to explain what Fareed said about what the Egyptian authorities can do to their own people, everything he described, the US government can legally do under the provisions of The Patriot Act if the conditions on the ground call for it's implementation.
What ever happened to Colin Firth? I thought he was going to be a guest on the show?
AND WOULD YOU PLEASE LIST THE UPCOMING GUESTS!!!
For the most part, I can accept his interviewing style, but I become upset when Piers conintually cuts off the answers his guests are trying to give, especially after his long-winded set-ups. Worse yet, his interruptions then take the interviews in a completely different direction and the initial stories or anecdotes are forever lost. It becomes frustrating to watch.
Barbara, I totally agree. I have written posts on this also. Because he interrupts and then goes off in another direction, we never hear what the guess wanted to say.Piers seemed a little better with Queen Noor; hopefully, he is reading the blogs.
Smitty, I think he's trying too hard to prove that he's listening to his guests, unlike Larry King who was often oblivious to the responses he was getting. I agree with you – let's hope Piers is reading this and can find a balance.
Barb, I agree with you - Larry WAS oblivious to some of the guest's answers. In addition, it didn't seem that he prepared for his guests. Sometimes, he asked the silliest questions - questions he wouldn't have asked if he knew more about the guest. Piers seems to really prepare. It will be interesting to see if he starts letting his guests finish their answers. Although I realize that sometimes the host needs to interrupt if the answer goes on forever or goes off-track.
Queen Noor looks great. Hard to believe she was born in 1951, and will soon be 60. Maybe having a Swedish Mom contributed to her beauty?
Please change your home page and put the date of the show where you state the guest for that day instead of "tonight". I check each morning to see who is going to be on that evening and, often, am not sure if it is for that night or still the guest from the day before. This was particularly confusing when you had consecutive days where you covered the Egyptian situation.
Have loved 'most' of your interviews until tonight. Watching you badger the Winklevoss twins about money was painful – you should be embrassed. Do you know nothing about people who have principals? IT'S NOT THE MONEY, IT'S THE PRINCIPLE. Why could you not get that? Not sure I'll be able to watch you again. Eleanor
I can only repeat what I sent in a number of days ago....YOU WILL FAST LOSE YOUR VIEWERS IF YOU DON'T STOP cutting your guests off when they are TRYING to answer your questions. TONIGHT was a prime example of your poor manners. I wish you luck but am afraid your show will go downhill if you don't stop being so egotistical and stop embarrassing your guests to the point of badgering. My viewing 6pm show is coming to an end soon if this format continues.
Watched your interview with the Facebook twins....hectoring, badgering, interrupting your own questions, rude and stupid. Bring back Larry and replace this fox clown/clone
I was hoping for a better lineup. I watched your show twice and both times, I got so frustrated... You interrupt your guests continuously. There is no way we can follow their answers. Good luck anyway! I hope it will get better, but for now, I,m not watching anymore...
We have enjoyed you show and wish you the best! We feel your first shows were much better than the recent ones. Your English accent is often very hard to understand and please refrain from talking over a guest's answers to your questions, We like to hear their answers as well.
Considering Donald Trump has been your Patron, I like the positions you are reflecting back. So far I would not vote Trump from what he has said so far.
You should ask him what kind of Legislation he would seek in dealing with all the American Corporations who have flocked there where they work like disciplined slaves for $300 a month. It is more money than the Chinese earned before, but inevitably those workers will want a raise, and Chinese good would become more expensive.
Don't blame the Chinese when it's American & Western business interests that make the business decisions to transfer too expensive American labour for cheaper Chinese labour?
WHAT DO YOU AND DONALD THINK OF MISSOURI IMMIGRATION LAW.
On many occasions when he's asking a question, he then starts to answer it before he gives it to the guest. This is something that Katie Couric used to do and it is very frustrating to the audience. If you're asking a question, don't suggest that you know the answer (even if you do), just give the question to the guest. And stop interrupting them to change the subject. Piers should be reading these comments.
With all of the governments saying they had no Intelligence to tell them this development in Egypt was on the way, Eric Margolis, the Foreign Correspondent, warned about it in an Article last April in what can be seen in retrospect as being prophetic. CNN is featuring many experts on Egypt after the fact of the Revolution, ignoring the real expert, Mr.Margolis.
Please update the front page of your website with more specific information about programs. The message about Egypt tonight and Colin Firth "tomorrow" has been on there for at least 2 days. What does "tomorrow" mean? Is Colin on tonight or Saturday or when?
Please, please listen for an answer and stop putting words in to your guest's mouth.
You are a TV presenter not a 'red top' reporter anymore.
We want to hear what your guest has to say and not what you want to say. Keep it up Piers for the sake of the UK.
The humiliation of it all! As the carefully constructed Imperial Pax Americana crumbles on it's false hopes, assumptions, and promises, washed away by the sands of Time, the other carefully groomed stable ally of America in the area has effectively undercut Washington's last lever of power in Egypt, the threat of cutting off $billions in military aid.
With Saudi Arabia committed to replacing any borrowed dollar the Americans might cut in aid to Egypt with Saudi hard cash, there few good options left except mea culpa.
Watching the Egyptian people's desire for Freedom manifest itself, it gave me a sense of deja vu. It was so long ago the Biblical Moses stood before Pharaoh in Egypt, and speaking in the name of I AM, said, "Let my people go!"
Today, as history repeats itself, we have witnessed the Egyptian people, united with one great voice, shout at Pharaoh in Egypt, I AM!!!
I have no interest in talentless Janet Jackson (or any other Jackson). I will not waste my time watching her whisper tonight. I like real music such as Beatles, Beach Boys, ABBA, and classic rock, and country.
Also, would you please list future guests? The coming soon part is always blank.
What ever happened to Colin Firth? I thought he was going to be on your show?
So we have Janet Jackson tonight, and we still haven't seen Colin Firth. Come on!!!!
Still waiting for Colin Firth and Rod Stewart. What happened to their interviews?
Can we please have a timely schedule of who's going to be on for the entire week in advance.
It is almost afternoon and the website still doesn't say who is going to be on tonight. It still says Janet Jackson. Please indicate the actual day of the week rather than "tonight". For those who didn't see Janet yesterday, they will think she is on tonight.
I don't think Piers is listening to anyone here.
OK, I take the above back. Checked my email & CNN wrote to tell me that Colin Firth will be on Thurs the 17th, unless of course, there is some new breaking news. That was nice of them.
I like Piers too, but not as much as Colin Firth.
CNN sent me the same email. Hope it's true.
It is disconcerting that we never hear the end of your guests answers. You seem to want to answer the question you ask them. What is this about?.....We would like to hear the whole answer. It seems to me that you are wanting to push us off listening to your program. I am still grieving Larry King, and I am trying very hard to adjust to you. I have a television only for CNN. Beyond the news, and 360, Larry Kind was the reason why I kept a television. Why on earth are you asking questions and than interrupting in the middle of all questions and give your own answers? Are you reading this?...............please listen to your shows and see that this is not a of the cauff opinion. I am reallly trying to help you realize with others that you cannot let anyone answer a full answer. You seem to think that your answer for them it what is best. What is the matter with you. I have written this 3 -4 times. Are you reading or is CNN reading. I am concerned. Though my english may not be the greatest because of being of another nationality, your show is shallow compared to Larry King, because he learned to let the people answer and brought on board deeper conversations. II wish it would get better. You do not listen very much it seems. After a few words, you listen to yourself. That is not fun.
Watching you and CNN reporting on the overturning of the tyrants in the Middle East, as stated earlier in this Blog, on September 13, 1976, page 3A, with the header, ´Prophet Chooses Park For Vigil´ The Kansas City Times recorded and reported on my visit to the City and the Republican National Convention. They report, in addition to other specifics, I was serving notice The Writing is on the Wall.
This Public record and marker of Time from 1976, besides reporting specific time related events before the Time line of History confirmed the letter, also records, "and explained his own mission as "waging war against the beast" – the beast defined as government of man and tyrants." The new Presidential limousine called "the beast" is an aptly named confirming Spiritual "symbol."
It's taken all these years, but the whole world and America can now see it's days are numbered if radical reformation is not started soon.
Obviously, as regards the mission, I was not talking of my own personal action other than being a messenger in the right place at the right time, but since this report is from the Revolutionary Spirit of '76, it is only now the Revolutionary Spirit of '11 is beginning to overturn the tyrants and government of man in the Middle East. This we can see. It will soon spread world wide.
watching interview with Netanyahu... WHY the hell does Piers Morgan INTERRUPT his guests while they are trying to answer his questions....soo irritating!
When Piers first started this program, I was so happy because he did NOT interrupt..that has all changed and now this interview tonight with Netanyahu is terribly disrespectful! I turned it off, I couldn't stand listening to him continually interrupt. Please think seriously about that style, it has no class.
Are there moderators reading these emails, are all the emails about incessant interrupting getting passed on to someone who can inform Piers? I hope so. He will be losing viewers.
Piers needs to stop interrupting people but i have to admitt I have only been able to get through 2 episodes Piers is trully annoying and i can't watch him. I think he thought America would be a piece of cake.
Piers' style of interrupting his guests was just as annoying to me. I think he has gotten a lot better. He has interesting guests, he asks tough questions and he is well informed. His show would be truly great, if he kept working on being a better listrener and allowing his guests to finish their sentences. I disagree with the comments about the Netanyahu interview. Piers did a very good job and asked tough questions.
Piers Morgan shares human weaknesses and virtues:compassion...the hope...sorow...freedom...vanity...greed...Faith...with the audience–He is very good!

I just saw Piers attacking Bob Parsons on his "elephant hunt" in Africa and was disgutsed. What kind of fool suggests that African farmers build a fence to keep out elephants!! Are you that stupid? Really? Poor farmers.... or the African government are going to build a fence to keep a 4 ton animal from getting to their food source? PETA and CNN appear to be sadly mis-informed as usual.
Oh F the elephants . The Elephants are on their own. Let them them forage. Dont lure them into dependency like young healthy able-bodied procreating iliberal Amercans.. Irresposible profligate and disrespectful, do they actually think money grows on trees?
Where is my 870?
Just watched you with Jessie Ventura. What is disgusting is a news organization arguing that information being released like Wiki leaks is not right. Something is backwards when so called news organizations argues that information should be kept secret and not released for News organizations to report. Maybe you should argue for catholic priests that molest children to be "just taken care of internally by the church" or maybe you should just argue that there wouldn't be any propaganda by the government of there wasn't some truth to it. Maybe it is just British naivety Piers.
Piers sounds like he has a mouthful of penuts. CNN you suck for hiring this idiot.
I watch your shows and I wish you would STOP interrupting your guests and interject your point of view. Why do you keep doing this?
You have 2 ears and one mouth, use it accordingly.
Piers just provided a good example of why he is just an party line thinker. When ask by Jessie Ventura how he knew what he had said was true, he said " it's a gut feeling. I'm sorry Mr. Morgan but your gut feelings are not fact.
Hey piers you should not be interviewing american politicians, you cant seem to tell the good ones from the bad ...not your fault you're a pom! You are so off base with Jessie Ventura it is not funny ....surprised he didnt just punch you for the crappy way you treated him! He is a better politician than the entire mob you have over there in pomiland....America is not a british colony with a parliamentary monarch that you all play nice with. Americans dont think like poms! Thank God. Why the hell doesnt 'failing in ratings CNN' have an American anchor to replace Larry King????
Hey Piers, Your country murdered thousands of Native Aboriginals in Canada and Australia, and recently murdered thousands of people in Iraq on false evidence of weapons of mass destruction. That makes you no different than all the rest.
Hey Jessie Ventura RUN FOR PRESIDENT please, seriously! Based on what you say, Think 99% of Americans believe in YOU. Clean that sh-t up with the way elections are run in America.... the panhandling and the bribery! You may be the only one with guts to actually do it ..... CHANGE CAN BELIEVE IN after " MR.YES WE CANT" ...we havent got any so far. Guess not obama's fault, he has his hands and feet bound with his mouth taped shut by the republicans....ouch!
I don't believe what I just herd from the president. He's threatening the American people that if a deal can't be struck tonight it's not his fault it's everybody else's. But not his.!!! IS HE NUTS.
Jessie has lost it. I dont know where he came form but needs to go back there he is a certiciable. He is a danger to himself and any one else around him. Take him off the air.........It is laughable
Larry King must be grinding his dentures. Morgan is in love with his own voice! He must be the worst interviewer I've ever seen on TV. Somebody needs to time him talking compared to his guests and remind him it's about the guests, not him
With PBS showing the 25th anniversary of Les Miseables at the O2 arena in England, tenor Alfie Boe is gathering a huge US following. PLEASE Piers either watch the DVD or, on Youtube watch Alfie sing "Bring him Home" Maybe then you will have Alfie on your show...He has a great story as to how his fame came about. Working in a car factory he used to sing while he worked. A customer urged him to go to London for an audition. He did and the rest is history.
Alfie was born in Blackpool and grew up in Fleetwood.
I wanted to post this before the "Burnett" show ended...I have a punch in the nose waiting for you, for making Carol Burnett cry, and I guess that's how we (Americans) feel about our iconic heroes...would you ask Prince William how he felt about high speed chases?, or the safety of highway tunnels, with median support columns? I wonder which way your ratings would go if you had tears rolling down his face.
I am sure my bitterness will wear off come tomorrow, cheerie O Mr. Morgan!
Please take this man off the air. He is not credible and and angry man.
Your discussion about water torture was torture. Donald Rumsfeld and the people in charge of the investigation at The Guantanamo Bay detention camp , all testified that traditional investigation led to more important revelations regarding Binladen. When torture was initiated the information stopped. Waterboarding was a massive and incompetent failure ( a simple youtube search could have saved you and us this ridiculous segment). Your program did nothing to enlighten the public and only left a lingering doubt about wether waterboarding really works. Shameful, disgusting. Legitimate journalism is dead and this program is a monumental example.
If only you had shown the same respect to Jesse Ventura. Perhaps now you realize what these guys do, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Why not show the families of 9/11 in private the photos of Osama IF they request a viewing? I support the Presidents decision not to disclose the photos. The families of those lost have the right to view the photos if the feel it would bring closure.
I don't want to see bin Laden dead or alive. I think we should stop showing the pictures of him alive too! We continue to promote his being by showing his pictures over and over again. Please stop.
Please can you put in context your comments that killing the Terrorist Osama is illegal. I have not researched it but assuming you are working from the Geneva convention on conduct of war. Is it legal to target civilians, taking hostages; bombing markets, airliners and trains, or flying aircraft into buildings? Let us not forget that I am sure that civilians who have taken the side of positive governance and supported the security services in Afghanistan have been also been assassinated by terrorist. Not to mention collateral damage since terrorist, cowards, hide behind civilians.
Terrorist wars are immoral and the hardest thing, in the face of the evil of terrorism, is for security forces to maintain a moral mode of fighting. Often similar or covert and questionable tactics are the only effective way to get at the coward who head these organisations and hide behind civilians and their gullible foot soldiers.
Every one especially military leaders have to weed out people who are involved in the fight, and have been corrupted by the evil struggle or were always inappropriately motivated. However, a clinical strike with nearly no collateral damage on this individual, I for one do not see as illegal.
The question that needs to be asked, is, was the timing of this decision late or motivated by political reasons? American domestic politics should not affect any decision with global significance. That is just as relevant to all the powers, who have messed up this world in the Cold War, China, Russia, USA, UK, France. Stop Supporting Terrorist and strive to force all leaders to lead with wisdom.
I have been watching Piers discussing the Bin Laden issue with Michael Moore and am struck that Moore is more precise, clear about the different ways of looking at it than Piers Morgan. I welcome him to CNN but would suggest his advisors tell him he should remain in the interview chair and stop getting so personally involved with the issues of the people he interviews. Larry King was a master at that; he always "sat back" as it were and asked the questions, fielded issues and rarely ever commented on his personal feelings in matters. I am not in the habit of writing to you but would like to see Pers Morgan succeed and in order to do that, he has to remember he is the interviewer...only. I can forgive him for getting so personally critical of Anderson Cooper over the Wedding coverage because he is from the U.S., although I felt that Anderson Cooper was not given sufficient recognition and the opportunity to comment as he could. I resented Pers Morgan criticizing Cooper's pronounciation of some words; he seemed to trying to upstage him. Thanks.
iRoger Moore's nievate is surprising. He still thinks Americans are better "than they are." How foolish. I learned, 40 years ago, as a nurse in Vietnam, watching my fellow medical personnel and our troops that we are just the same as everybody else on this planet. No better, no worse. Just as venal, ugly and malignant and just as magnificent, good and noble as any other peoples anywhere.
I know,I know, I mispelled naievete.
Prettiness but has it's advantages. Look at the girls he can get?
both a curse and an advantage I suppose?
You get what you get... in life
Hi Piers, I like your show and I watch it every chance I get. But tonight I was upset that you have to interview somebody who doesn't have respect for the God who created her any form or shape. With all the staff that is happening around the world I don't think that she(Chaz) deserve to get interviewed. One day her and the doctors who helped her will taste the hell fire and no law will safe her.
InZain: Which "god", what "hell"?
Watched for 1st time tonight. Jessie "the outlaw" James? Really? He talked and acted like a 16 yr old, immature child. Grow some nalgas Piers and confront these media jokes when they say something stupid mmmaaannn (like you advertised the show).
It made me almost have an interest in seeing Donny sit on your lap and serenade you-but, only for a nano second.
Commonly overlooked in epilepsy is unrecognized obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). As a neurologist, I can tell you it is not on most doctor's radar screen. BTW, you won't believe the long list of other diseases in which OSA plays a role that most doctors have little or no knowledge of. It is frightening.
You are doing a wonderful job, but please, no "snake wrestlers"! You know who I mean. There are far too many smart, funny, important people to interview. Don't do what Larry did to fill spots.
Good luck with your great show!
First of all Piers, you are doing an amazing job and I love your show.
I just saw James Wood on the show and his comments really resonate as he like millions of other Americans do not understand the root of the problems in America.
In my opinion, the root of all the financial problems in America stem from 1971 when Nixon took the country off of the Gold Standard.
This left the printing presses at the whim of the politicians.
Since that time we have had numerous bubbles and in each case of collapse the solution was to print more money and stimulate the economy again until the next bubble comes along.
II think you should do a show on Gold and why people are now interested in investing in this asset class.
You touched upon this topic briefly tonite but to do it justice you need the hour to do the topic justice.
As much as gold is being talked about in the media, only 3 percent of investable assets are in gold and gold related equities.
In 1980 at the peak of the last major gold bull market 21 percent of investable assets were in gold; and at that time you did not have Chinese buyers,there were no ETFs to make it easy, and we did not have a currency crisis as we do today.
I could go on and on and I am not even a "gold bug".
As Mr Sorkin stated, unfortunately we probably will have another financial crisis, and a good way to minimize it's effect on your savings is to have 5 to 10 percent of your assets in gold.
Thank you in advance for considering this suggestion for a future show.
It's not enough that Jesse James committed serial adultry, now in an attempt to sell his book, he is blaming it on Sandra Bullock. I don't remember hearing any negative comments from her to him. In an attempt to shore up sympathy he suggested that she thanked him and said that she had never had anyone have her back before, purely because she is an actress and that's "what she does". And then he stole the line. We had to hear how much he loved is tattooed lady; "more than anyone" or some such sludge. He is a slimeball and a coward. I hope this new marriage turns out as well as the l ast one.
Are you people serious????? My area was hit with massive tornadoes on April 27 and you are talking about rich Oprah retiring??? Seriously??? There are people here in North Alabama still living in tents because FEMA and the media and people like Oprah (remember her trips to NOL and Africa) aren't here because we are not a place that makes for good "face time" and a lot of attention.
What planet are your on??? Jerks.
Oprah left today??? Sounds good to me. Hope you go away too. You are totallly out of touch with REAL life.
See ya OP. Good. Bye.
I am a Pakistani- American and watched your interview with Ex-president Musharraf. I am apalled at the biases of your questions. To a man who is the only moderate sound of Pakistan and from Pakistan, your questions did not do any justice to his work as a strong ally of America. The impression that you tried to create with your questions was that he is also an extremist, that he thinks that killing Osama was not justified and that he would have come in the way of killing him. As an interviewer, and a prominent media person it is your responsibility to show leaders of countries in the most honest way, without your own perceptions coming in the way. Setting somebody up so that they say the most "sensational" things and create a buzz is quite irresponsible, especially when you are talking to a leader of a country and somebody on whose moderate ideology that country's future may depend. Sorry to say, I have list total respect for you and your show. I really thought you had a brain.
Thanks for the interview with Kathy and Paris Hilton. It was great to hearing them speaking so affectionately about Michael Jackson. Inviting people who REALLY knew him to speak about Jackson is the best way the rumors and ridiculous stories told about him can be dispelled. The public needs to know what a good human being he was, someone who was unjustly maligned by the media in US and UK alike. More of this please Piers!
Until I watched the interview on your program,I was not aware that the Hiltons were such close friends of Michael Jackson. Just goes to show how little we all really know about him. Perhaps more of his friends should speak up and tell us all who he was and what he was really like. Its a cliche, but he really does seem to have been totally misunderstood by the public and victimized by media. Too late for Jackson, but not too late for his family and children, it's time he got the respect he deserves.
I just watched your interview with Kathy and Paris Hilton. Thank you for allowing this interview to be aired. It was lovely to listen to such a heartwarming interview. This is what needs to be known, the human Michael not the media caricature we are often get. Thank you again.
More Donald Trump, Boring, this show is getting worse and worse.
Thank you for the Kathy Hilton interview about Michael Jackson. The interview was done with respect and sensitivity, and Mrs. Hilton was allowed to speak without being cut off whenever something positive about Mr. Jackson came up. The poor man's image was horribly distorted by the media and it is time people who really knew him are allowed to reveal the truth. He suffered from insomnia and was not a drug addict. He was a loving hands-on father. Am glad those facts were brought to light. Thank you.
Brilliant dismantling of Ann Coulter!!!! Round one absolutely to Morgan!! Love it!
Piers Morgan is the rudest of the rude. He is self-absorbed, disrespectful, arrogant, and obnoxious. I am shocked that CNN pays him to be himself on air. Apparently, he learned nothing from his predecessor. Larry was king of the interview and treated every guest with care and respect. Every guest deserves respect, whether he agrees with them or not. Piers is like a school yard bully who feels empowered by his position. And we all know the real reasons bullies behave the way they do.....
Regarding your negative comment about the Tea Party last night in the Ann Coulter interview: if you think that Tea Partiers are anything but average middle class working Americans, mostly retired and military veterans, you have not attended one. Yes, we hold up signs showing that we love our Founding Fathers design of America, No Taxes, Stop Spending, Reduce Debt, stop appeasing the Muslim dictators & radical groups, sing patriotic songs and more rhetoric such as these. We never advocate violence and the only violence I have seen was promoted by outside Union thugs and Black Panthers on conservative blacks.
Why are you having Jack Welch on the air acting so ethical? Many of his previous employees and contractors working for GE did not view him as maintaining high ethical standards.
I so miss Larry King. Piers Morgan is annoying, rude to his guests, opinionated, and quite frankly.....BORING! I wish CNN would gets it's act together and get rid of this frothy-mouthed, pinch-faced Larry wannabe. I have seen all of maybe 4 episodes of his program and cannot stomach him anymore. I have switched to Greta. This guy is an overrated joke. LOL
Thoroughly enjoyed the interview with Fergie. Thanks.
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO SEE ALFIE BOE ON YOUR PROGRAMME? How about flying to London to interview him in his dressing room on the day he takes over the lead in Les Miserables. June 23rd?
Love the show. Thanks Piers.
I think Piers Morgan is doing an outstanding job. He is intelligent, provocative, an excellent and creative interviewer and always a gentleman.
Congratulations. One does not have to be vitriolic and partisan to be informative and entertaining.
Your interview with Kevin Bacon today:
It's interesting to note, when asked which of his movies he would watch again, that he said, "Murder in the First" ....
I remember I thought when I watched that movie at the time it was released, that his performance was worthy of a major award. Just saying..
Will someone have the guts to ask Christie tough questions? What about what he is doing to seniors? What about his personal interest in privatizing schools? What about being afraid to negotiate with anyone? What about his cholesterol and BP?
Good interview tonight. I am not a Republican but enjoyed the interview with the straight talking Governor Christie. Please stop interviewing movie stars and start interviewing people of substance.
Re your interview with Tatum O'Neal – I wish there were another way to reach you, but – I did not have the opportunity to see the interview and have watched the few bits that CNN put on line; however, somewhere during this interview Tatum O'Neal implied/said that Michael Jackson was a drug addict at the time of his death. That is a complete misrepresentation. Michael Jackson was the victim of a homicide, and celebrities making such shameful statements are playing right into the hands of Dr. Murray's defense which is seeking to portray MJ as a "drug addict". Jermaine Jackson tweeted Tatum stating respectfully that Michael was not an addict, and Tatum replied respectfully with an apology for her misstatement. ONeal hasn't seen Jackson in decades and should be ashamed of herself for stating this UNTRUTH AS FACT.
Piers Morgan, you need to obtain a public apology from ONeal at the earliest opportunity, as Jermaine's and Tatum's tweets will not be made public and you allowed the damage to emanate on your show. Without proof (of which ONeal had NONE), her comments about Michael Jackson should have been EDITED OUT.
MJ most likely had obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) causing profound insomnia (much like I had) causing him to seek medical help for sleep. Uninformed physicians prescribe sleeping pills and other respiratory suppressants to their patients without knowing their patient's sleep status. Respiratory suppressants prolong apneas and can cause cardiac arrhythmia and cardiac arrest. His doctor never heard of OSA and killed MJ due to his stupidity.
I agree with, because of the the stupid doctor we lost Michael The King of kindness.
But Michael will live in our hearts forever.R.I.P MJJ.
The mysterious and unexplained 34-37% increase in mortality in those prescribed sleeping pills, anti-anxiety meds, and antidepressants (all respiratory supressants) is due to prolonging apneas in those with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Physicians prescribing these medications without knowing whether their patients have sleep apnea or not, are unknowingly putting them at risk for cardiac arrest while asleep.
When it comes to OSA, most doctors haven't a clue.
So I just watched the second installment of the O'Neals, this time with Ryan, who while talking about Tatum's childhood said how lucky she was as a child, "she danced with Michael Jackson", emphasizing what a glorious life she lived. Whle I don't care a fig about the O'Neals, how convenient once again that Michael's name is used by Ryan after just being used by Tatum in her Piers interview a week prior. These people need to get over themselves and get a life; Piers, no one is interested in the O'Neals, and certainly no Michael Jackson supporter is interested in a reality show emanating from The Oprah Winless Network.
Love the show, and Piers is an intelligent classy host. Last night watched the interview with Ryan O'Neil and my heart was broken. Ryan is obviously a very disturbed man, who took no responsibility for anything in his life. Typical addict
behavior–no eye contact, very hesitant responses, blame others. When he said "Tatum abandoned him and Farah" I
was infuriated. He left a 15 year old to fen for herself, so he could pursue his relationship. He reminds me of a "wet
brain" alcoholic. Tatum's mother was an alcoholic, his other children are all drug addicts, as I believe he is as well.
Like Piers Morgan a lot. He's very respectful of his guests–shows real kindness, which is rare. He is honest, too, pushes a bit, but then backs off. I think being a good interviewer is in the DNA, you either have it or you don't. He has that special something.
Great interview with Christiane Amanpour, one of the best journalists and smartest women on the planet.
Great interviews with Tatum and Ryan O'Neal. You handled these difficult interviews with great skill, compassion and professionalism. Great work! I wish the best to the O'Neals and I hope soon we can see them both in an interview with more smiles and laughs and tears of joy rather than sorrow and pain. Good luck!
Hey Piers, Here is a novel idea. Next time you ask one of your guest a question. Let him or her answer it !!
Watched the LaToya Jackson interview last week. The level of denial in the Jackson family, as to the real cause of Michael's death is astonishing! Now there are "people" who wanted to kill her brother? The Dr. is in the process of taking the fall for his death, even though he was paid large sums of money to IV Michael on a nightly basis, so that he could sleep!
I am a retired Substance Abuse Therapist, and cringe when I hear the family say he was not addicted. Denial is a large part of the disease of addiction, and how Michael was treated by his "sick" father, is it no wonder he turned into a man who completely changed his appearance and used drugs to cope with all of his pain. Such a sad story!
I would thank the man who bought Michael Jackson's Jacket to raise money for the children around the world, because that is what Michael stood for.
Piers.... will you let the person you're interviewing finish their answer before you interrupt with another question. We're watching to see/hear them... not you. You're like an NBA (that's basketball Piers) ref that thinks the crowd is there for them.
Enjoy the show very much.
Watched Charlize Theron last night and embrace her charitable work,. However, I was extremely disappointed that she did not mention The US/ President/ and Mrs Bush's involvement and generous contributions to South Africa in their fight against AIDS. This was certainly during the time period in which Ms. Theron said that she has been involved.
After mentioning that she voted for President Obama,and ignoring President Bush' help, I'm going to assume instead of making gains in a much needed support for her cause – she's made it partisan. Typically "Hollywood' behavior. What a shame, ihecertainly was worth a mention.
Too bad, giving credit where credit is due would have certainly helped. There are people who admire Bush for his good works.
-"Mrs. Bush stressing 'abstinance" - "expanding education and legal rights for women" - (which would be accomplished via teaching – one of particularly important focus Ms. Therons stressed)
-"No U.S. President or political leader has done more for global health-" -
-"With the strong support of the American people and Congress, President Bush’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief was the first quantum leap in America’s leadership on global AIDS."-
Is it only me that finds CNN Piers Morgan Show so frustrating? Why can 't they name the guest who's on the Show in the tv guide or cable discription? Do they think we all will go to the channel and wait to see who he has on? Well not me! I would like to know who is on if I don't see or someone doesnt call me and tells me I do not tune in.There have been times when the next day my friend tells me and I am disappointed and say Why can't they announce who the guest is?
This response is for Linda from Mahopac: You said you find the Piers Morgan Show so frustrating, however I believe you mean your frustration lies with TV Guide or Cable! I think with cable talk shows, the subject matter or guest can change should important "world news" need to be covered. Perhaps a guest for some reason is unable to show up? I'm unsure if the shows are live or taped, and all of the above will surely make a difference in the programming. What does it take to wait 20 seconds to hear what the program is covering? Your disappointment is because you will only watch a program with listings posted, a lame reason to miss some extraordinary TV.
I agree with Linda from Mahopac, but the problem does lie with the lazy cable channels that print either erroneous descriptions of what's upcoming, or don't print any description at all. Yes, I would like to know ahead of time whether it's something I'm interested in seeing, or not. These shows ARE taped ahead so there's no problem if someone doesn't show up. Sometimes I think in CNN's case they don't want to blow the cover in case something (in their opinion) more important shows up and they can pre-empt their own programming. I too would like some advance warning of "what's on tonight".
I wish Piers would let his guests answer the questions he asks them. Often times he will interrupt them before they even get a chance to answer the question.
A great interview with Andrew Lloyd Webber. Very entertaining. Thanks Piers. NOW Piers, please think about interviewing Alfie Boe who has now taken over the lead in Les Miserables at the Queens theatre in London UK. You MUST have seen the 25th anniversary of Les Mis at the 02 on PBS. Alfie is amazing his talent extraordinary and to top it he is a really genuine guy who started work in a car factory in the north of England. While polishing cars for a living he used to sing. One day a customer urged him to go to London for an audition. He did, was accepted, and has gone from strength to strength. He also won a Tony on Broadway. Check him out Piers Pleeeese.
So refreshing to have a competent attorney finally appear in the media. Alan Dershokwitz (sp) adequately delineated the merits of this case – and the drama in the court room.
Marcia Clark needs a hairdo – and a retirement. That you brought her on the show – and likely paid for her appearance – only exemplifies the undo media attention to litigation matters. Marcia & crew were stupid in LA – and the state was stupid in this last event that caught the eyes of the country.
Mr Morgan caught your show tonight and just wanted you know that you are wrong when you say that all of the people feel that she is guilty! Many Many people do NOT feel that she is guilty! It is the squeaky wheel effect here, those who have made it there life to hate casey anthony and for some sick reason bought into all of the medias lies and sensationalism are the ones you are hearing from. while those talking heads who have not even taken the time to actually watch the trial have too echoed these beliefs. truth is there was NO evidence that Ms. Anthony killed her child. If caesy anthony is lucky she will sever all ties from this very secretive, dishonest family. You keep asking the question why she would not report the death...a young girl loses the one person she loves the most and as always in her life her father who has always taken control ...took control again and buried the body..that later after a hurricane, high winds, animals and flooding the body surfaces and all of the contents of the bag is tossed about, thus add that to her emotionally wanting to deny it ever happened, partied and did everything to make that happen with the fact that her ex cop father who also was HOME and could have had some responsiblity for watching the child told her to never tell it. you have the begiinnings of a tradegy gone very bad...compliments of an ex cop who made a stupid decision, a young girl who to say the least was as disfunctional as the family she was living with and the MONEY that was to be made by the media by sensationaliizing it and profiting by always adding to the story. similar to the way they did with Jon Benet. as you know Many people in our society hang on the every word of a nancy grace and it is pathetic what people like her can create. Fortunatley we had a great jury that did thier job. Thank GOD for our jury system.
Just when I think you're making your way, earning some stripes you do something crude/stupid/appalling like asking Beyonce "Who has the bigger butt: you or J-LO" Poor thing. She was in a car and couldn't walk out on you like I could. Tacky beyond comprehension.
I am concurring with so many of the writers about Piers, interrupting his guests in the middle of their sentences. I felt so sorry for Billy Ray Cyrus, who could barely get a word in! However, I fully enjoy the show and like Piers, he is a wonderful replacement for Larry King!
Your program tonight about the budget crisis was the best show I have seen that you have done on your CNN show. I loved your challenge to Grover Norquist. He did not want to answer your question because he could not answer honestly and stay the party line and he knew it. This more serious type program may be your forte. Neither my husband nor I like your interviews with celebrities where you so often come across as a dirty little boy snickering behind the wall in a school playground. Or as Andrea Helman said previously ask Beyonce about her butt or take her to Harrods and make her uncomfortable about paying for the cd. With this program you ask some hard questions and ask for honesty.
On a good note, I do like how you conduct your interviews. You take genuine interest in your guests & you have the ability to develop a rapport with them, within a short amount of time, which I would imagine is not always an easy thing to do with some guests.
But good grief Piers, is it true, do you really like Nancy Grace's show ? I got the feeling that you felt sorry for her but to say that .... really ? I won't ever watch it myself. There's enough upset in the world for me to engage in unnecessary upset.
Love Nancy Grace. Best interview Piers has had! I remember watching her on a program (probably during the OJ case). There were three other guests on, all laughing and she was the only serious person there. Emailed my first "thumbs up" to CNN at that time. Have always respected her ever since!!!!!!!! Shed lots of tears over this one. I believe in her, that's why I respect her opinions.
i was embarrassed to see how disrespectful Nancy Grace can be, not only to Americans but also to Brits. She is determined to make sure all americans hate Casey Anthony and the jury that acquitted her. She has NO RESPECT for anything!!!! She claimes she has the right to freedom of speech and so has done so to feed all that hate against Casey. She doesn't know FOR SURE 100% that Casey murdered her child. But boy, she judged her LONG BEFORE Casey had her day in court. Quite frankly, I wish someone woould tell her she is NOT THE OWNER of the truth and she should move on!!
I agree with you about Nancy the mouth she seems not to understand that not guilty means just that, even though she tried her best to find her guilty in the media. Even though she was not aware of all the facts. Is she another of Murdochs herd? Is CNN? We know FOX is but why not tell the public who is working for him or his Media....You know, like Piers Morgan...Let us know,,we can judge for ourselves if your media is fair and truthful. We do NOT need to be told what is true, we CAN judge for ourselves.
No need people to be crazed at Nancy Grace! I watched MSNBC Morning Joe this morning, and Piers Morgan's name
was mentioned so many times during the Broadcast, which focused on the Rupert Murdock scandal. In his book he spoke of what part he played years ago, when Editor of a British Newspaper. It was however mentioned, that Piers will
not be dragged into this debaucle, as he is protected under the statute of limitations. Good luck Piers!
Piers attacking the British MP on Wolf Blitzer's show today made it official:
He's clearly guilty of cell phone hacking and he's a arrogant bully.
I will never watch him again.
The Murdock's are clearly lying through their teeth. Our Government does the same. It is a time in the scheme of things, where their is so much corruption, Wall Street Vs. Las Vegas where most of the gambling goes on, The oil
companies and Pharmaceutical industry rules our country. Morality is a thing of the past, no one cares. I believe we
are coming close to the point of no return. Wake up America, let us all pitch in and take our country back!
You have repeatedly commented on how most Americans are for increased taxes, but what you fail to mention is they are for raising other people's taxes. I have yet to see the question posted "Are you willing to personally pay more taxes". Our government is out of control when it comes to spending and what I don't understand is if the individual can't overspend and not get into financial trouble, why is the concept of not overspending so foreign to our government. Congress and the President are still having lavish parties, vacations, etc. in a bad economy when do they "down size" spending our money? One big savings would be to telecommunicate instead of jetset all over the world.
Nancy Grace and Piers Morgan should both find jobs to which they are better suited. Say, waiting tables (Piers) and pumping gas (Nancy). Oh, wait, people pump their own gas in today's world. Oh, well, guess Nancy's out of a job.
I cannot remember ever seeing such a dramatic performance (put on of course) then 7/22 Nancy Grace. She is a self absorbed, narcissistic exhibitionist! She is also full of rage and anger, and two things I recently heard of which would
bring her to this place, well at least one, is that she believed recently that she may have ovarian cancer. The second was witnessed at last night's show, of her fiance' having been murdered. Now, that was 30 years ago! No there is no such animal as "closure" however we learn to deal with terrible things in appropriate ways! Grow up Nancy!
We so enjoyed the way you conducted your interview with Tom Arnold. You did not attack or judge him, just straight forward questions to reveal the truth. Tom seemed to respond accordingly providing truthful and honest answers. It's so refreshing to see such professionalism...Thank you both!
In the spirit of compromise, have either republican or democratic congressional members possibly considered a partial adjustment of the tax breaks to the more financial advantaged ,(rich),say half of the benefits that they now enjoy? Anything to be considered as a breakthrough of this stupid,(in my opinion), childish charade,with llittle or no regard to what is best for this country ,our country,their country!!!!
Prior to all news on your involment with Murdoch and all the related sleaze, I did not care for you. Now, I despise you. Do America a favor and leave. Go back to England and finish the job you started of destroying England's free press. Leave our's alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanx for finally taking on the democrats – its time to stop blaming bush – the stimulus DID NOT create jobs – the GOP HAS passed the bill they would like, cut-cap-balance – the ball is with the dems in the senate – if they cant pass cut, cap and balance, then let the debt ceiling blow up – the dems are destroyingnthis country
Heard today on cable, that the Democrats had a bill that would cut $2.2 Trillion over ten years, as compared
to the bill Boehner proposed, which was $850 billion! What the do you expect any President to do, when
Obama was handed tremendous deficits, we have been giving billions per year to third world countries for many
years, we have two wars handed to him, plus all the other uprisings in Libya etc. Many of my friends from both
parties, and myself have discussed small across the board tax increases. Everyone needs to give, especially
the billionairs and multi-millionaires, who because of the tax break given by the Bush Administration are paying
less taxes then their Administrative Staff. Let's get real America.......It takes a village.......!
I'm just wondering why no one has mentioned the fact that our gov't has over 3 trillion Iraqi dinar. The un has in black and white that it has to revalue at the pre-war rate of 3.22. Oh yeah and we are the one's holding up the revalue, not to mention around 3 million Americans own an average of 1 million dinar. That is a lot of tax revenue too.
No one seems to want to discuss the happenings of 2000 and 2001 when Republicans destroyed this countries opportunity to have no national debt by 2010. A balanced budget Act was dropped by The Republican led Congress to pave the way to borrow 1.35 trillion dollars from the newly raised debt ceiling to pay for the lost revenue of the Bush tax cuts. This total is doubled because we did not have the funds to give people back their own money. If we take the 4 trillion dollars in capital gains tax cuts and the 2.7 trillion above we have 6.7 trillion dollar in cuts and unfunded borrowing covers the lost revenues. Republicans continue with giving funds away that increased the debt. 2000 CBO states we will be national debt free by 2010 IF there are no changes. I feel that if the borrowed and lost revenues of the Bush tax cuts match the national debt that they are the problem. This is feeding debt to the Monopolized Federal Reserve. About 16 trillion in a debt turnaround according to CBO of 2000 prediction. You need to add what the debt was to Bush tax cuts because it was supposed to be gone. another 4.5 trillion for the Fed. As this debt is given to the Fed our dollar looses purchase value or worth. 26 cent dollar is down to a 8 cent dollar at the start of 2008. Intrest indexing at the Fed so to speak broke the bank in the fall of 2008 which cut the dollar to 4 cents in value doubling debt and cutting assets in half. Yes I sit around my table wondering what to do cause 3 years ago all of us including the government suffered a 100% loss.
I have been disappointed by Piers Morgan since the default debates started. I used to enjoy his program, but he usually stayed away from politics. Once he talked politics it became clear he is a radical liberal with a complete distain for the conservative other side. For instance today he said both sides are in part to blame. The republicans for eight years of screwing up the economy and leaving a huge mess for Obama. Then the current administration made it a little worse.
A little worse? A LITTLE worse? The most massive spending binge in human history is making it a little worse? He is a raving ultra-liberal!
In the spirit of compromise, shut down the federal government totally at once. Just shut it down completely. Then each congressman, senator and the president lose two days pay for each day they do not have a solution in place voted for signed by the president and enacted as law. Take the money you collect from their slaries and apply it to the national debt. From now on every time a law is passed that costs the american people money, calculate what it costs each american taxpayer. Each senator and congressman who voted for it pays twice what the average american pays.
Sorry dwightmlee! I cannot believe, you have no comprehension of what a Government shut down would do to the
world! I hope you live on a farm, grow your own vegetables, have chickens and cattle, and are 100% self sufficient.
Your life will change quite radically, and if you ever need some ligitimate assistance, such as unemployment, or you are the age to collect Social Security and get Medicare (to which you have contributed for your lifetime of working)
you will surely be in a bad place. If this is what your belief is, I can respect that, However you are in the minority
of critical thinking people. This thinking comes from the radical Tea Party Republicans, whom have been criticized by their own party! It would be wise to drop your party affiliation, become an Independent, at which time ones mind
entertains both sides of the disputes! The Tea Party is putting their party in very bad light! And Speaker Boehner actually has no other choice at this critical moment to honor the Tea Party's demands. He needs their votes!
I must compliment your expertise as a talk show host. Your questions are to the point & you are not afraid to express your own views. Thank you.
We don't need to know which Party is the big winner. WE need to know if WE won.
Does anyone else hearing Peirce referring to "Americans" as separate person?
Great show Monday August 1st. Great to see you pressing (get it?!) the lawmakers on economics. Have you thought of inviting George Soros on to the show? You've had trump trumpeting how about Soros and Sorry Us?!
Rep. Mack was right you are a joke. You have no substance, and a arrogant Socialist.
Is there a way to receive e-mail alerts as to who is the guest on Piers Morgan show? CNN used to do so with Larry King. I miss a lot of Piers' shows because I don't know who'll be on on any given evening.
I hate to break the news to you Mr Morgan but after watching your interview with Ron Paul I have to tell you there are many Americans who vehemently AGREE with Mr Paul.
THANK YOU FOR INTERVIEWING RON PAUL
Great Ron Paul interview. Thanks Piers, you're the man! I look forward to seeing more about Ron Paul on your show.
I agree with Peter – great Ron Paul interview. One thing though, you said there were a lot of people watching that vehemently disagree with his view on abortion. What about the people that vehemently AGREE with his view?
There has to be a contingency plan for egg white on the mouth during an interview. eg. When you cut away to a clip, and Piers is talking – somebody should have the decency to wipe his mouth, however it may disrupt the "flow" of the interview.
I tuned in to watch Penn Gilete, not to hear Piers pontificate about his personal views... Who cares about what he thinks,,,, Bring back Larry..., please...
I, too wanted to see what Penn Gillet was like, only to see all the interruptions from Piers, and his pontificating about being a good Irish Catholic boy! If Piers did not like Penn's belief system or lack thereof, he needed to allow him to express himself. If all the Religions of the world, would only stop thinking they are the "only true Religion" our world
would surely be a better place. I think Piers is experiencing EGO problems!
I missed one of Barbara's points – Piers is a good Irish Catholic boy?- I thought he was British! Yes, as an interviewee, Penn should be able to express his view. I don't know who he is. Then she talks of people's religions in general as to not present their cases! However, this comment is to agree with all watchers who are disgusted with the TALK OVERS by Interviewers over Interviewees. They do have to cut in if a long monologue occurs, however, not continual talk overs. Next – Christine O'Donnell has stated her stance on her Catholic faith. Period. Why did Piers want to rehash old truths or comments that Christine had made in the past and had included in her book to make it complete. Good Grief, why couldn't he allow her to talk about the bills and politics that are current? Barbara said that Piers had presented himself as a Catholic, then he goes overboard to reject Christine's understandings of the Bible! Makes no sense. Then, Piers let his next interviewee talk nice and long after each of 2 questions. Which was good. Since I had to do some computer stuff, I missed the talk overs and rest of interview. Hasn't Piers ever read the Holy Scriptures, otherwise known as the Holy Bible? OK, Piers, ask a question of Christine and then get on with the current events! Yes, Christine should have said that she still believes in Abstinence for the unmarried to keep healthy mentally, spiritually, and Physically. However, as she soon proved, any comments on the subject just leads to hassle and we never hear her opinions on other political subjects. Our loss. She has answered many times that the witchraft observations occurred due to being with another person, and she very soon left it behind her. Why dangle witchcraft in front of those who choose not to be around it after they realized it was not of their interest!! I would not return to Piers' show unless he promised to stop rechewing old stuff and get on with questions on current subjects..
This is in response to Euphony's post. I am an Irish Catholic woman, who was born in the US. My parents were Irish & English, however were born here as well. Irish/English is my anestry, having nothing to do with where I live. I believe there has been a misinterpretation of what I was saying regarding Penn. I was upset that Piers reacted to Penn's
Atheist beliefs in such an agressive way. This is what bothers me when I spoke of each religion believing they are the "only true religion" as they apparently have no wish to learn of another's religion, as their is the "true" one. Some 40 years ago, I purchased a book on the Religions of the World. I then learned of the differences in beliefs, which was
a great experience. Religion is personal and to be embraced, not fought over. Religious wars have been going on since the beginning of time! My experience is that there is always aggression, when two people get in to a discussion on religion, each one wants to win and prove "their" religion is the one! It appears to me that there is so little "tolerance" for other's opinions on every subject that can be discussed! Regarding my statement about not knowing who Penn is, was answered by watching the interview. A talented, long time successful performer, a father of two, a husband and Athiest. Piers gave him little time. It was all about Piers and his beliefs, and his obvious distaste for athiests Society puts itself in a position of "approving or disapproving" on a myriad of subjects, which comes from our individual character and moral beliefs, which is a good thing! I believe everyone needs to applaud our differences as a people, and learn "acceptance." A good motto is "live & let live." Have a good day Euphony!
He is a 'good' man Catholi and loves good taste like the Daily Mirror!!!! Also has a long tounge! (and sharp I bet! )
Josh Groban was supposed to be on tonight too and they must've cut him over such rubbish. They advertised it last night and Piers Morgan didn't even apologize!
NEWSFLASH: Piers Morgan walks away from Josh Groban interview!
Piers is OK. Larry King was awful. Anderson Cooper doesn't cut it. We need smarter more in-depth questioners. I like Fareed Zakaria, Howard Kurtz, Ali Velsi, Christine Romans.
Also, the best person ever to host the CNN morning show was Soledad O'Brien, They replaced her with..., geez, I don't even know.
I did not know Josh Groban was to be Pier's guest last evening, What I have seen on all "interview shows, " is that shows will be changed, without notification, to cover what they decide is important world news, and needs to be broadcast. This happens more often than not, particularly with the state of our society at present! I think it would be very important, for people who are disappointed by a change in a TV guest, to learn how to handle disappointments! If this is the point to which a post is made, I would read up on actions recommended on how to handle stress in one's life, and handle the obvious underlying control issues!
Get over it. So what, someone walked out on your interview. Is there nothing else to report on today?
Had the good fortune last night, to watch Piers interview with Tim Fallon. He is an incrediblly talented comic, and in my opinion near genius. It was a wonderful interaction between the two, as Piers laughed more than even, and Tim took any question that was asked of him. A great balance between them both. At the end of the interview, when Tim grabbed his guitar and did his impressions of Springsteen & Dillon, I laughed until I cried! Thanks Piers!
So sorry bloggers.....I had the name Tim on my mind, rather than Jim Fallon! Just gives me a reminder that I am not perfect, and always speak up when I make an error. Enjoy your day!
Piers, why would you ask the question to your guest tonight (8/23/11) that if Gadaffi were captured, should he be brought to the US? If I am not mistaken, there is an ICC warrant out for him and his sons - the US is not the center of the world criminal justice system.
AMEN! The US ego is all about power, and not about the pride of its accomplishments. I would not want to live anywhere else in the world, as freedom in the US is uncomparable. So your comment Paul regarding our criminal
justice system is right on!
Yes there should realize the opportunity to RSS commentary, quite simply, CMS is another on the blog.
Just caught the differing opinions concerning the level of effort to warn and evacuate NYC and other populated coastal areas. The plan worked - let's pat the officials (D's and R's) on the back, FEMA, state and local officials that coordinated so beautifully to move people out of harms way. Those naysayers - shame on you for disrespecting the efforts of thousands of Americans who did their job, volunteers standing at the ready, and our government that worked. Thank you Piers for that supporting those folks on the air.
I applaud you Piers, for gathering those who shared their opinions on the preparation for the evacuation of we Americans, in the face of Hurricane Irene. I have always believed that we should always err on the side of caution!
I need not say more, as William Krause said it beautifully!
Thanks for having Rick Santorum on so he can show how clueless he is. If we put our country in the hands of incompetent idiots like this we are sure to go bankrupt.
Retreat from the M.E. The $ saved will cover our Debts etc. We are still in good shape
Tonight watching your show I finally have had it. What has President Obama done, let me tell you. 1st He is the first Afro-American President. 2nd he has pass a health bill that will help the poor, which is something you know nothing about. Third, Bin Laddin is dead. I have been watching CNN for over 5 years now, but your constant belittle of my President who is trying to clean up 8 years of Repulican mess and your negative talk about him is starting to take a toll on if I will continue to watch CNN. CNN has always been fair, your comments on Obama are not fair stay out of the American political scence and stick with the move stars CNN and you will last longer. You know nothing of the struggles of Black Americans and how proud we are of President Obama.
After listening to Piers Morgan on "Larry King Live" show tonight, I sincerely think we should not only get an American person to do this spot, and definitely NOT Piers Morgan. My stomach actually turned over at some of his comments.
Granted he's English but he knows French,Spanish and poss.a little Greek- I envy his CLOSE contacts and the way
he pays them for 'service'– so keep it up,up and up and show us how the english really like it?
let me say HOWARD LUTNICK is the first true AMERIICAN besides PRESIDENT BARRACK OBAMA that I have heard in a very long time
Continuing,Piers is doing a good job. I hope he will become a U.S.citizen asap,then he can be a US Taxpayer
rather than a UK sufferer. I hope he will support Pres.Obama,whose intelligence is refreshing & needed.
As for the Republicans, They are doing a great job DESTROYING THEMSELVES, Thank God!
I am still amazed by Piers Morgan's ability to glue his audience on CNN for every interview. Piers is not only smart, he knows what is right and what is wrong. He has a strong moral value and foundation, and yet he can connect with those who may be on the opposite side of his believe or value.
America definitely needs an interviewer with the quality of Piers Morgan to fix its social and economic diseases.
God bless you Piers! Continue spreading the Love of God!
Good interview with Mario Lopez. From his TV beginnings, then subsequent Dancing with the Stars spot, if you asked me my opinion of him it would have been the smiling Latino hunk! It was refreshing to conclude that he is not all about
his looks, and that the warmth, respect and caring he expressed, and the questions Piers asked him, showed me a side of Mario unknown to me before, a nice man, successful businessman, future husband and loving father. (Real handsome too!)
This blog seems to be collapsing! What's up?
Piers what is it that you have against President Obama? I bet you never met him,you just agreeing with all your Republicans buddies. You need get to know people for yourself. It seem like you always want your guests to speak againts him ,why is that? Why not ask about the other Presidents sometimes. The same concerning you talking against Madonna,what you have against her,is it because she more popular than you will ever be. You seem to have a real negative spirit,I am surprise you have all the guests that you do.
Piers I love your show (usually)
As an american who lives in Italy, I was really surprised to see how one sided and "filo-american"
the views expressed by your "experts" was concerning Amanda Knox case.
The problem lies with the fact that the american "experts" did not follow the
whole initial period as it unfolded in the first days in Perugia with Amanda and Rafaele
buying disinfectants and attempting to clean the apartment and (apparently)
destroy all potential evidence. To get & give a balanced picture, Piers needs to get
on his show an ITALIAN journalist who followed closely the whole initial
period and some Italian lawyers. It is ridiculous to have american expert lawyers pontificating
about a legal system they know nothing about and a case they themselves have only
read about through poorly informed second hand american newspaper accounts.
LET THE PEOPLE SPEAK!! There is no point watching an interview show when the interviewer does all the talking. Ask the question, shut up, and wait until the guest is finished answering. Not only the professional way to interview but just being considerate and respectful !to others
This blog is full of viewers who keep asking Piers to ramp up his interviewing skills. He has good questions, but many times he never lets the guests answer a question before he throws out another one. Settle down, Piers. Your anxiety and attempts to prove yourself smart are very distracting. Your show suffers for your lack of control.
AMEN, Rebecca! Piers has wonderful guests, and we have the opportunity to learn about them, if Piers would only zip that marathon mouth! I have found he does it less with guests such as Sean Penn or Harry Belafonte. He shows them
respect, however others continue to suffer at his hand. I would think Piers or a staff member read this blog, and report
to him what they see. If he does not take heed, which obviously he does not, perhaps one day he will wonder why his show is being cancelled for lack of viewership! Get a grip Piers, don't ruin a good thing!
Agree. Agree. Agree. He won't last long. Look at the list of actually good people who have left CNN
going back to Paula Zahn, Rick Sanchez, Larry King on and on !
It is truly a great and useful piece of information. I¡¦m satisfied that you just shared this useful info with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.
Poor as franc zone states of africa are, they have, for over six decades, been depositing 65% of their foreign reserves in the French Treasury in Paris – thanks to an archaic colonial arrangement linking their local currency, the CFA franc , to the French franc and now the euro." Later on, it is learned that "another 20% of reserves [go] to cover financial liabilities."
francophone Africans have been reduced to "taxpayers for France French yet they neither have French nationality nor access to the public goods and services made available to other French taxpayers."
The CFA franc and its archaic arrangement with the French Treasury in Paris is a slave deal
In an arrangement like this, any notion of freedom, wealth creation, progress and fundamental human dignity for francophone Africa is impossible. The "pursuit of happiness" is not possible. Modernity is passing francophone Africa by because a significant percent of their peoples' money is being controlled by France, at France's discretion, and has been so for over sixty year
Hey – nice site, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using WordPress for a few of my websites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
Piers-You don't get it! You don't understand US politics, economics. Can't believe you aren't fired yet. What the hell are you still disgracing CNN for. Tried to check in tonight as a last chance. Sorry, you lost our viewership. You are in need of a proper education. You are a combative fool with a mega-ego. No wonder you idolize the donald. Sorry CNN can't get the message to fire you.
Pierce: Here's a problem for you to work on....Don't talk over your guests, Don't talk at the same time
as your audience cannot understand either of you. Get it? Review the tape with Kathy Griffin from
Dec 19. Larry King never, never, never talked over his guests.
magnificent submit, very informative. I'm wondering why the opposite experts of this sector don't notice this. You should continue your writing. I'm sure, piersmorgan.blogs.cnn.com have a huge readers' base already!
Piers Morgans' position on Iran is the propaganda that divides and separates rather than putting forth facts. The oil companies and war mongers benefit from him creating an enemy. Rather than looking to build a bridge towards peace his accusations hurt the process of reconciliation. To say something as if it is common knowledge and infer if i don't believe it I'm a fool is not journalism. I hope he beings to back up his redric with fact or his time slot is replaced. I'm tired of war and its proliferation.
Imagine interviewing a Jew converting to Islam! Islam believes when Christ returns, He will say Islam is the True Faith of the God of Abraham.
Maybe even Sean Stone was not aware of this:
Iran's proud but discreet Jews
Although Iran and Israel are bitter enemies, few know that Iran is home to the largest number of Jews anywhere in the Middle East outside Israel.
About 25,000 Jews live in Iran and most are determined to remain no matter what the pressures – as proud of their Iranian culture as of their Jewish roots.
It is dawn in the Yusufabad synagogue in Tehran and Iranian Jews bring out the Torah and read the ancient text before making their way to work.
It is not a sight you would expect in a revolutionary Islamic state, but there are synagogues dotted all over Iran where Jews discreetly practise their religion.
"Because of our long history here we are tolerated," says Jewish community leader Unees Hammami, who organised the prayers.
He says the father of Iran's revolution, Imam Khomeini, recognised Jews as a religious minority that should be protected.
As a result Jews have one representative in the Iranian parliament.
"Imam Khomeini made a distinction between Jews and Zionists and he supported us," says Mr Hammami.
Even the US and the UN is against Zionism, that is, Israel continually expanding on Occupied Palestinian land with new settlements which is illegal according to International Law.

Piers: You are supposed to be a hard hitting interview host. Your true colors are showing – how many times are you going to have Santorium on your show? You never follow up with a question with him when, as last night, you asked him about Rush Limbaugh. Contraception is a big part of his platform. You let him get away with the reply, "I'm too busy working on jobs and the economy to pay attention to that". Oh really???? He dodged the question and you knew it!!! His reply was the same as all the other republicans running for office. Your usual brash manner is missing every time you have him on your show. I should not be surprised knowing your worked for Rupert Murdoch which side of the fence you sit on. Good bye Piers. Like many others I know, I won't be watching.
Hey Piers, I just saw the man from starbucks. I LOVE IT!!!! I was a dunkin donut, but I will be going to starbucks. the cafe will taste better! thank you for exposing to these U.S. citizens, (not americans) lol to this kind of way to do business, made in the U.S. of A. I'm Canadien living in a very conservative area, Hickory, N.C. In Canada the economy didnt dip! it's still going strong! you walk into a store in Montreal, you'll see a lot of MADE IN CANADA. Thanx buddy, keep it up!
Hi Piers, Watching and enjoying your interview with Gloria Allred. Have to say, "Gloria, I think I love you!" What a wonderful woman so full of life and vigor.
Pierce Morgan is just an Euro-trash elitist person. He treats Americans like they are trash. He does not have respect for Doctor Paul and is war-mongering so that Americans go to war (why doesn't he do his mongering in the UK-they also have an army). He is also looks down on Mexicans. His trip to Mexico was full of slurs as he thinks Europeans are superior.
The great interview with Gloria Allred was feisty, humerous, as well as heart wrenching.
I have always enjoyed your interviews here in the US. as well as in the UK but at times lately, you are butting in and not letting the guest finish. This is becoming very irritating. PLEASE Piers DON'T become a BILL O'REILLY that would be a real turn off.
Keep up the good work.
The facts in the Trayvon Martin case seem to point to the other person,not Zimmeman, being in fear of their life, for it was tryvon who reported his concern about someone following him, and concern about the motive . to then try and defend himself seems very much within the standing your ground law, a little roughing up is not death.
Piers I thought you conducted yourself with professionalism when you interview George Zimmerman's brother. You can't please everyone. I agree with Toure 90% of the time on political issues but this time I think he was being unreasonable with you. Keep up the good work.
Wonderful site. Lots of helpful info here. I am sending it to a few friends ans additionally sharing in delicious. And obviously, thanks to your effort!
Hello there, You've performed a great job. I will certainly digg it and in my opinion recommend to my friends. I'm sure they will be benefited from this site.

Terrific work! This is the kind of information that are supposed to be shared around the web. Disgrace on the seek engines for not positioning this put up higher! Come on over and seek advice from my website . Thank you =)
Hi Piers I am from sweden lived here 40 years. Don't won't to move home its to fun here Never stop suprise you. I see that in your face. Its new. Surprices evry day. Keep up the good work. Berit
Really Appreciate this update, can you make it so I receive an email when there is a fresh post?
I enjoy your show, Mr. Morgan, but I have been disappointed in your vocalization regarding the gun laws of the United States. You are from England (where guns are banned), and I believe you are over-stepping your bounds in criticizing OUR Second Amendment rights. I believe that you will be losing viewers if you continue to try to impress the views of Britain on the United States. As someone (hopefully) informed Governor Romney today that he is a GUEST in your country and should keep his mouth shut. You, Mr. Morgan, are a GUEST in OUR country.
You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually one thing which I feel I would never understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely huge for me. I'm taking a look forward to your next put up, I'll attempt to get the hold of it!
I used to be suggested this web site by means of my cousin. I'm no longer positive whether or not this put up is written via him as nobody else realize such targeted approximately my difficulty. You are incredible! Thanks!
It's actually a great and helpful piece of info. I am satisfied that you shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.
I get it....You support Oblah blah. Your show is slightly one-sided, and I don't like it anymore.
I venture to say you should ask your guests how much of the income they have derived from investments,and use these investments to reduce their tax load?
I venture that all persons who make middle income and upper middle income, who are smart enough to save any of it, rather than follow the governments borrow and spend policy, have tax shelters for their money, including Harry Reid.
I just watched your interview of Jessie Venturia... You are a complete ass.. You are the worst host I have ever witnessed on television.... I watched the show to hear what Mr. Venturia had to say....NOT what you think or how you view America... You constantly interupted Mr. Venturia.. He was not able to complete a sentence and when he did manage to over talk you then you call him a crackpot.... Your views on guns and the american way of life are so out of touch with the people. You are nothing more than a bought and paid for talking head.. I had never watched your show before tonight and I assure you I will not watch CNN or your show again. The American people have had enough.. The sleeping and well armed American giant is about to wake up. We despite what you think or have to feed us as far as your comments are moot,,,You sir are not an American and you certintaly do not speak for me.
i see u had john mc cain on tonight, if u wish gto read about the real mc cain go to the web page
viet nam veterns aganist john mc cain, i was put to geather by the late col. david hackworth a person with seven purpale hearts,.
if have brass go nads go se the real john mc cain that hackworth found through the freedom of information act
I have been exploring for a little bit for any high quality articles or weblog posts in this kind of space . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this web site. Reading this info So i am happy to show that I have an incredibly just right uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most no doubt will make certain to do not fail to remember this website and provides it a look regularly.
If you are going to use a movie reference to name Sen. McCain, Sen. Lieberman and Sen. Graham you should use “Meet the Fockers”.
Like the rest of the country, I am saddened and outraged by the shootings today at the elementary school. I am a 45yr old mother of 3. We live in a small rural town and where farming and hunting are second nature to most in our community. As I watched the Piers Morgan show tonight, I was even more outraged listening to Piers mouthing the gentlemen whose opinion differed from his own. The children and adults who died today, were murdered by a PERSON, the gun was the method. The semi-automatic used was NOT an assault weapon. And Piers questions as to
"why" the mother killed owned these guns, well, its not anyones business. These guns were registered and legal. They were stolen not given to the shooter. Its obvious that Piers is not a hunter or has any interest in guns and that is fine, however, he should restrain from being a mouthy idiot and allow all guests to speak freely without judgement. Bad guys will always exist. Our attention as a nation should be on how to identify them before its too late. Its sad that after such a horrible tragedy, Piers only stand was about gun control and not on victims. My prayers go out to all of the families and the whole community.
good for you, in reference to the coroner . it was painful to watch, shocking!
IGUNS: F A L S E P R O T E C T I O N
Example: Gunman storms into your house and you have a gun. I think you would be neutralized by the time you find your gun. Even if you have it on you, gunman comes in ready to shoot.
Let us say he is not armed, having a gun would put me in a position to kill someone. I do cannot live with the guilty of killing another human being, robber or not, especially if that individual is mentally ill. Come in without a gun, rob me and leave me alive. I can buy material things but not life.
FA L S E A R G U M E N T – Since you no nothing about firearms, it would make sense for you not to talk about them. It only shows how stupid you are.
Retired USMC .. I have five guns at home. You sir are silly and should stop and get away from the keyboard. I guarantee you that I know more about weapons and what they can do than you. Average citizens have no business with military looking, acting or ability hold as many rounds in a clip as your off the shelf assault weapons. When a gun like this kills one in your family you will change your mind. I have seen people I cared about die next to me. You’ll never forget. Ever.
Why does Piers Morgan seem like a very angry person? It seems certain things are not agreeing with him. I think it is now time to send him back to where he came. Things are better now that he is no longer being what some may call a judge. He is a very, very sad person. I think medication for him is now needed.
Piers morgan has shown on many occassions he is no more than a hateful communitst. The way he treats people that he doesnt agree with is a shame. Shame on a man who thought he was a judge.
I don't know why more people aren't angry like Piers Morgan. This is a hard one. Thanks Piers for your passion on this one!
We stopped for a cold drink on our way home from the store last week and there was a guy sitting close who was very pleased with himself. He'd been to a Gun show and bought three guns! He went to his truck and brought one back inside and started to assemble it. He proudly told us "I bought it for my grandson for Christmas" Horrified (we're British) I said "How old is your grandson?" "Three" he replied. The Canadians sitting next to us had the same reaction as us. Totally shocked!
I like facts, ergo after Donblane the British enacted the strongest gun control laws in Europe, and no more dead children was the result. The writers of the second ammendment did not envisulize automatic weapons. Draw your own conclusions.
Sorry, but I was expecting much, much more, After holding several top executive positions and a journalist and television host with England’s leading media corporations, I was at the lease expecting a certain level of professionalism. Name calling simple will not do, maybe this is the English way, but in American that tactic, usually reflect ones lack of education, tact and again overall professionalism. Add that to the point that you are calling Americans these insulting names, you come across as an English person looking down your nose at Americans, as if your country and culture is superior. That behavior simple will not do in the U.S. Sir the U.S. is still second to none
Piers Morgan over the top on an NRA issue... Come on! This billion dollar industry that uses every tactic they can to boost profits at all cost, including lives, needs someone like Piers. Hooray that that someone is finally calling them to task. Even Ronald Reagan wanted assault weapons banned!
Second amendment BS hype....Let's stop this ridiculous availability of these weapons.
After watching the Jan 7th show, I must say Piers kept his cool, and let the gun advocate make a complete fool of himself. If American gun owners, are like him I believe the guns should be taken from their hands, and placed in the hands of those with mental illness. They are much saner than last evenings raving mad man. If he moved in next to me I would put my house up for sale the next day. We have strict gun control in this country, and don't find anyone feeling deprived that they must go through certain rules and regulations to aquire a gun. You can't control idiots, they will always be with us,, but you can control guns. Bye the way I am not British.
piers , why dont you get somebody on your show who can set you straight about auto matic weapons and semi
automatic. the gun girls was a easy target for you to go after. but i guess thats why your ratings are in the gutter.
Piers continues to be rude and interrupt his guests. Bring back Larry king, who knew how to interview guests.
In the hands of an inexperienced gunman, a semi-automatic weapon is far more dangerous than an automatic weapon because he can hold the semi automatic weapon on target better. An automatic weapon does spray out bullets faster but the barrel tends to ride up to the right. On a professional can hold it on target with any degree of accuracy. A nut with an automatic weapon would probably miss his intended targets. These 100 round clips jacked into a semi-automatic assault weapon in the hands of a nut are far more dangerous. His rate of fire is slowed down to a point where he can hit what he is aiming at. He can control the fire much better. Good luck. Love your battle. Cheers............
The whole gun argument is useless. As long as the gun companies are making billions of dollars and paying off all the politicians and the NRA, nothing will ever get done. Like everything else in this country, it is all about the money. If you really want to do something to stop the insanity, you have to reverse the 2005 law passed by congress and signed by bush: "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act." This ridiculous law gives 100% immunity to gun makers from lawsuits. Seriously, you can sue Mcdonalds for serving coffee that is too hot, but you can't sue a company that makes killing machines. The only way to hurt the gun companies is to hurt them in their pocket. After all the only thing that brought down the mighty tobacco industry was the mightier lawsuits that they had to pay off.
Might have an idea to assist on gun control. The current SOP for background checks are sad in my state. The gun stores do no more of a check than what you would get from a peace officer on the side of the road if pulled over. Here's how to get better gun control. If a gun store sells a weapon to someone who lies on the background check, well they get fined. So you would have less people fraudulently buying weapons. I guarantee you if the gun seller got fined every time they were negligent on a background check, well you would have less people buying guns illegally. That’s a fact. If a bar sells alcohol to a minor all people contributing and the bar itself would have legal reproductions and get fined. Even jail time or the bar’s license is taken away. That’s why they card at the door. Also, include a check for people who are under care for neurological disorders. Make the psychologists and psychiatrists report to a national database those persons they feel should not have a gun. It’s simple Piers. You’ll probably never read, but makes me feel better to state. By the way I think you are a man of class and would want you on my side of an argument.
i used to like your show, now all i see is your personal views!!! it looked like a blind side about Gay marriage last night. I wanted to hear Suze talk about money not her personal life.I believe the gentleman you were talking to had some points.I am a Christian and that is what this country was founded on . Look up one the first school books( first Primer1776). this book will tell what family values were at. Now the is deteriorating because we have "it's OK sin-drum' where everything is OK and no one wants hard line rules. I think Piers, you should look at your own country. England still occupies Ireland , where is the fight in that free those those people before you come trying to change us. a word on gun control I have not heard statics broken down when it comes from gun violence. How many people are killed by illegal guns,next mentally unstable, finally the responsible citizens. Please get back to getting the truth, not vendettas.
My main concern is when Piers continually interupts his guests. (unless he likes them)
I must agree, I too am getting weary of Piers interrupting all the time. Please stop Piers!
I just finished watching Piers Morgan's interview with Robert Zimmerman Jr. Frankly, it was extremely - excruciatingly - annoying. It was irritating beyond words because of the style of the "interview." Simply put, Mr. Morgan, your interruptions and overbearing behaviour served no purpose other than to provide a stunning example of rudeness. One might expect that a more tempered approach would serve the valuable purpose to inform, discuss, debate and educate.
I agree with Piers stance against guns 100%. He is not always polite, but that is chump change compared to all of the people being murdered day after day in the United States. The same persons who are so annoyed with him and his stance are spouting off about their rights to carry guns. That is hypocritical, as he has the right to free speech and voicing his opinions, works both ways. Someone has to stop the gun insanity, and if he gets people on board and gets just one step closer to reducing gun ownership, and it saves just one persons life it is worth it.
What your not gone yet?? You said you were leaving...what up with that? And you have the nerve to talk about the illegal presidents lies...give us all a break and follow through. Gun control is for victims of tyranny.
I hear about the american public in an uproar about the U.S. Govt. monitoring telephone calls for spy stuff. Does the american public know anything about what was happening in the late 80's? The U.S. Govt had airplanes (listening posts) that would orbit cities and watch for "spy" telecommunications! Anything and everything on the radio waves in an effort to find spies. Today the american public is complaining about a loss of privacy due to the possibility that the US Govt is listening to everything. Bad news, the U.S. Govt has been already doing this from the in the late 80's to the present. I was involved with it to the point of engineering autopilot gain changes on new aircraft models that were to be used in this program. The electronic operaters flew and watch the radio spectrum for bursts of data being sent to the "spies" contacts The U.S. Govt has been monitoring telephone calls since the late 80"s! How the use of "plausible deniability" is just amazing. I was also sent to "Swan Island" Honduras to maintain aircraft that dropped weapons to the Contras in their war with the Sandanistas in Nicaragua. Sure we never were caught doing this cause the Govt hired NON-UScitizens to protect anyone from th US Govt being directly linked to THIS program.Ronnie Reagan said that we weren't there and in many ways we weren't. "Plausible Deniability" does work if you don't pay attention to the whole picture. I believe my other "Boss" was Ollie North. Just look nat his income now when he should be imprisoned for life!! He ran his own personal military "Army?" from the basement of the Whitehouse!!.Just so you can do a little verifying there was a radio company that SUMMIT AVIATION worked with to do these mods. Their name was Sanders Radio. I had a top secret clearance for many years, but I'm not afraid to talk now. Summit also modified 3 Casa 212's to drop weapons at this time. We also had 2 DC-6"s specially modified as well. We would travel from Middletown De. to McAllen, Texas and repair them in the U.S. U.S. customs also new who we were and alwats passed us through (Key West) no questions asked.I also told a CIA station chief just where to stick it on one of my trips.Anyway if you are interested let me know! email@example.com. I have allot of stories in my head. Never allowed to write or photograph the places we went. If you would like to talk contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (570)622-2586
Well it's rather obvious to me that Piers Morgan (like all the others) doesn't even read these comments.I would think that my involvement in the US Govt spying on their own people would have raised an eyebrow! Apparently there is no money in it!!
Piers: Tonight July 12, 2013, you made the statement that if Zimmerman were to be convicted of manslaughter he would still be facing 10-12 yrs in prison. That is not even close to being factually accurate. Florida's 10-20-life law would mandate a life sentence in the Zimmerman case, even if Zimmerman were to be convicted of the"lesser included" offense of manslaughter. In terms of punishment, there is no difference in Florida between 2nd degree murder and manslaughter, if a firearm is used and a person is simply injured, by the firearm being discharged, then a life sentence in mandatory–death is not even a requirement. Ergo, should the jury return a verdict of manslaugher in the Zimmerman case, the judge would be required by Florida law to impose a life sentence.
Mr. English Forrest Gump with the black kids on the bus had been white what a joke and you cnn for putting this ass on air white people beware. someone please stop him
Do you really believe the garbage that comes out of your mouth,or are you just anothert showman. I cam,t believe anyone with a IQ of at least 30 could spew such junk. Your opinions are so outrageious they have to be made up to make yourself contriversial.
Piers if you don't America and what happens in then you go back to where you come from. We are tired of you bad mouthing people in America, We have our laws, and if you don't like them then leave, Things happen in this world that just can't be predicated. This is to you piers I don't like the was you talk down America. I say to you if don't like America then leave and go back to your own contry and leave us alone.
Along with every thing that seems to be developing throughout this particular
subject material, all your viewpoints are generally quite exciting.
On the other hand, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your entire idea,
all be it radical none the less. It looks to everybody that your
comments are generally not entirely rationalized and in actuality you are your self not even thoroughly certain of your argument.
In any case I did take pleasure in reading it.
I do like the way you have presented this particular
Very interesting points you have remarked, thankyou for putting up.
