READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Chef and TV host Mario Batali is a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening and he talks to Piers Morgan about politics (in addition to food). "It's two sides and both quite adamant," said Batali. "Obama came in with a really great idea, and I love him, and I love what he represents, but he came into the knife fight without the knife."
Batali also talked the financial crisis. "New York City and Los Angeles are a little bit insulated from the full fallout," he said. Also on tonight's show is "Steve Jobs" biographer Walter Isaacson – tonight 9pmET/PT.
