Ron Paul on rape and abortion: "It's a tough one and I won't satisfy everybody there"

On the eve of Saturday's Nevada caucus, Ron Paul sits down with Piers Morgan for a revealing interview, during which the Republican from Texas shares his views on rape and abortion:  "If it's an honest rape, that individual should go immediately to the emergency room, I would give them a shot of estrogen."

In an emotional one-hour sit down from Las Vegas, Paul says he feels life does begin at conception, but thinks basing his entire abortion position on a hypothetical situation can be difficult:  "A person immediately after rape?  Yes, it's a tough one.  And I won't satisfy everybody there."

Tune in to "Piers Morgan Tonight" at 9pm ET/PT as the Republican race's oldest candidate goes into more detail on this controversial topic.

    The job numbers are not good, they are bad when you consider the number of people actually looking for jobs has shrunk. Take that into consideration and the actual and the actual jobless rate is more lie 11%

      I agree, you get the government you ran for not the government you wish for. Unemployment has been over 8% for three years. That is a fact. If George Bush was in office that would still be a fact.

      Hey Piers why did you have to put 35% down on a house how much was that thing you are not the 1% are you?

      Nice work Pierce. You never let Ron finish answering one question. The short answers you allowed him to have made you look foolish. You diverted from the important issues and finished off the interview on a completely unrelated issue concerning the presidential race. It this isn't an obvious example of the establishment feeling it slip what is?

        I'm with you, Ben. Piers Morgan's interviewing are lacking to say the least. He was especially rude and dismissive towards Ron Paul last night. I don't know how he came to have the position (Piers) he has. Apparently, more people need to speak up regarding his terrible manners (especially if he disagrees with you in the slightest). I was glad Ron Paul made the statement regarding allowing him to finish answering the question Piers Morgan posed to him. Piers was using the 'machine gun' tactic towards him, one quick question after another, never letting him have time to answer and when he did, he cut him short. I tell myself I won't watch Piers Morgan ever again, then there he is and I'm curious as to if he's going to ask those same silly-ass questions he puts to others. Thank you again for speaking up on behalf of Ron Paul!

        Hey Northern Neighbor,

        I think we are poised to take a 40-50% majority in a national election for a third party candidate, but it is going to take an increasing amount of patience and wear-with-all from my country's people. Also it helps to keep a positive alignment by speaking life over this years election (Ron Paul 2012!!!!! Whoooo, Tampa or Bust!) . We have a new electorate in our nation that has lived through 9-11 and has a great sense of national belonging, but just needs some understanding from those of us in the know. The american people aren't too far gone, at least not my neighbors, and even though you can't help by voting (hey wait could you guys move here and establish residency in time...LOL), you can foster intelligence and even advocate for the cause. THANKS, and I am glad to hear international support from the North American community (if I am not being overly presumptive..eh?)...

        Well... he most likely has his grown up children in Britain, so of course is not convenient for him to send the Brits to war.
        On another hand I have couple of question.

        If Israel is such a great friend of ours, why weren't they shoulder to shoulder with the American soldiers after 9/11 attack ? I would like to know HOW they helped us ever, considering the millions upon millions of $ they got from us every year.

        And... if Piers loves so much the school system and free medicare in Britain, why is he here ? Why was not Britain good enough for him ?

        The other day, in a interview with Jerry Springer, he was proposing the companies to bring the jobs back to USA by accepting lower profits. Why doesn't he go back to Britain and accept a lower salary there than here ? The Brits would love to have him back, wouldn't they ? LOL

        I agree..I was very disappointed IN Piers Morgan. I too thought he was going to do a good interview & we would finally get to hear what Ron Paul stands for. Turns out we were all wrong. Piers acted like Glen Beck tonight..in other words
        a complete JERK! IN spite of it all Ron Paul was respectful, patient & still tried to deliver his message. The man is so
        much smarter than all the other candidates Combined! He talks about his message & doesn't just concentrate on mud slinging. That's mainly because he has knowledge & has a PLAN to get America out of the MESS we are in! We NEED Ron Paul. The Republicans are too arrogant & too stupid to acknowledge the truth. They hide behind IDIOTS like G. Bush & that is why we are in the mess we are in!

        Exactly, Karl, I don't think that Piers Morgan likes it when an intelligent person TRIES to answer some of the most inane, irrelevant questions. Ron Paul was right-on when he made the statement 'why does America have to be the policemen of the entire world'. Bet he did not like it when Mr. Paul put it to him that how would he like it if thousands of Brit men and women had to die because of this. Increasingly, I am starting to resent Piers Morgan – He's too immature and ill-informed to be in the position he's in. He's not intelligent enough and his social skills are lacking. I don't like the fact that he has a job as important as the one he has and he's allowed to speak to people any way he wishes and there is alot of DISRESPECT coming from this childish man. I would like to see him off the air (unless he's doing a job he's more likely to be better at - judging talent – no, I take that back, he's not worthy to even do that. Now I'm being judgmental, however, I know my limitations – he seems to think he doesn't have any limitations.

        You are so correct! We watched as we thought Ron Paul would have a great forum to explain his ideals and principles. Piers simply showed he is a "puppet" to the liberal mainstream media with his constant interruptions – So disappointed and will not watch him anymore. I should've known when he started the program with "Ron Paul will not be your next President." How dare he start with that – the bias is blinding!

      Responders are right on. Piers Morgan is and arrogant ideolog creature of the capitalist military mindset. He can't allow Ron Paul to answer his questions if the answer isnn't going to support the above. Ron Paul did get one answer in: a zinger of let Britain be the policeman of the world (hypothetically), since the US is bankrupt just like the Roman Empire eventually became and the Soviet Union with their expansionist policies.

      Worst interview I have ever seen. It seemed piers was more interested in putting in his two cents worth rather than listen to Ron Paul. I won't be watching Piers Morgan any more. Last nights episode was painful to watch. Piers interrupted Paul everyt time he ashed him a question. Plus his questions were more rhetorical than genuine querries.
      Get rid of Piers and get another Anderson Cooper. His interview with with the woman last night whose daugher was killed by a drunk driver was perfectionl. That was an interview!!! Anderson allowed for everyone to feel her pain.

    THE BIBLE:
    the bible supported abortion, that was done by a priest, in god's name, in his holly temple!
    the 1984 NIV footnote of numbers 5:11-31 explained what "to thy thigh to rot, they belly to swell" meant: numbers 5:21 "or causes you to have a miscarrying womb and barrenness" to CAUSE a miscarrying womb IS an abortion.

    'Ephraim, as I saw Tyre, is planted in a pleasant place; but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer." Give them, O LORD - what wilt Thou give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts...Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit; yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.'

    HOSEA 9-16

      Neither of these passages support abortion. This is a great example of the fact that the Bible covers so many issues relevant to our lives today. However because a controversial topic such as abortion is included does not mean that God endorses it.
      The New King James Version translates Numbers 5-20-21 as "But if you have gone astray while under your husband’s authority, and if you have defiled yourself and some man other than your husband has lain with you”— 21 then the priest shall put the woman under the oath of the curse, and he shall say to the woman—“the Lord make you a curse and an oath among your people, when the Lord makes your thigh rot and your belly swell". The rotting thigh and swollen belly are a metaphor for infertility. This passage addresses what an Israelite in Moses' days should have done if he suspected his wife of cheating on him. This in no way is an endorsement for abortion. Read the entire section for yourself at http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=numbers%205&version=NKJV

      As for Hosea 9:16, the New King James Version translates it as "Ephraim is stricken, Their root is dried up; They shall bear no fruit. Yes, were they to bear children, I would kill the darlings of their womb". Note that it says "of their wombs" NOT, "in their wombs" Hosea was a prophet and during his time many Israelites were not leading a life pleasing to God. The Lord used Hosea to expose the Israelites' ways and warn them of the consequences of their actions. Ephraim refers to Israel and chapter 9 of Hosea addresses Israel's punishment. Several times in the Bible God emphasizes His love for Israel and it is often represented by the Israelite nation growing in size. So saying that Israel will stop growing and that children will die, rather than grow up to have children of their own, was a significant punishment. Again, read the entire section for yourself: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=hosea%209&version=NKJV

      I understand that not everyone is a believer, but quoting Bible verses without explaining or even referring to the context can be very misleading. There are many free Bible resources out there don't take someone's word at face value (including mine!). You can read many different translations of the Bible and search through every book and chapter at http://www.biblegateway.com/. Also http://www.blueletterbible.org/.
      If you have questions regarding a specific topic, http://www.alwaysbeready.com/ is a good place to start. Check out their section on the evidence for the Bible, it might just surprise you.

      Regardless of your political or previous spiritual background, I encourage you to give God and the Bible a chance. If nothing else you will gain valuable knowledge...although I pray that your life will be as transformed as mine. He truly is good!

    THIS IS SCIENCE:
    FETUS IS NOT A BABY (GOOGLE THE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT CHART), but a parasite because the classification of the biological relationship that is based on the behavior one organism (fetus) and how it relates to the woman's body.

    as a zygote, it invaded the woman's uterus using its TROPHOBLAST cells, hijacked her immune system by using NEUROKININ B and HCG- so her body doesn't kill it, steals her nutrients to survive, and causes her harm or potential death.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trophoblast

    "The placenta functions as an immunological barrier between the mother and the fetus, creating an immunologically privileged site. For this purpose, it uses several mechanisms:
    It secretes Neurokinin B containing phosphocholine molecules. This is the same mechanism used by parasitic nematodes to avoid detection by the immune system of their host.[2]"
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immune_tolerance_in_pregnancy

    " Due to its highly-negative charge, hCG may repel the immune cells of the mother, protecting the fetus during the first trimester. It has also been hypothesized that hCG may be a placental link for the development of local maternal immunotolerance."
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_chorionic_gonadotropin

    "It is also possible for a symbiotic relationship to exist between two organisms of the same species."
    http://www.answers.com/topic/symbiosis - Gale's Science of Everyday Things.

    just like a parasitic twin - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parasitic_twin

    "an animal or plant that lives in or on another (the host) from which it obtains nourishment. The host does not benefit from the association and is often harmed by it"
    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/parasite

    pregnancy CAUSES HARM: http://www.thelizlibrary.org/liz/004.htm

    if a man can abort his tapeworm at anytime– so should a woman abort her unwanted parasitic fetus, too.

      A human fetus IS a baby. It is not a horse, a television or a grasshopper. Ron Paul says that live starts at conception, because if you interrupt it, you are ending it's course of nature. Don't kid yourself that abortion means you're not ending a life, that you're not stopping it in the middle of it's destiny of living outside of the womb. We all start from an egg fertilized by a sperm, after that, if you leave it alone and don't kill it, you will have a baby. People in the dark ages thought all they saw was all that existed until Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovered X-rays.

        I'm afraid that's not true, Jessica. Up to 25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. This is normal for human beings and most of the time the mother will never know it has occurred because it happens so early. So left alone, 25% of pregnancies still will NOT result in the birth of a human being.

        Neil, to use 25% chance of death as a reason to end the life of a baby is like saying, Grandma has a 25% chance of dying through winter, getting rid of her would be financially better for us. The chance of death of a fetus is around 1-25% correctly however, I'd much rather go with the bigger percent that someone is going to live. If you are betting money on anything, why would you go for the option with the least percent of winning? You prefer to go against the odds? A mind like yours just doesn't make sense, a mind like yours will often make you unhappy, and you'll have days where you wish their was more or that there's something missing. Likely because you have no respect for life, 25% chance of death or less. Using this "immortality rate" is a tactic of an abortionist. You try to convince women that it's OK because their baby could die naturally anyway. So to prevent them from dying naturally, you kill them. My God, what a backwards and upside down world you live in Neil. Stay the hell away from my community please.

      Talk about twisting science and using extreme confirmation bias.
      You argument actually proves the fetus is a life. Even if parasitic as claimed, then it must be alive. And what type of life is it? If we look at the DNA it is of another human being. But your argument is ridiculous. The fetus is the same as a tapeworm? Then nobody should get pregnant and have babies. I've heard some good intellectual arguments, but your attempt is beyond absurd.

        How does it feel to be a parasite?

      Your argument that the fetus is a parasite makes sense, although its' parasitic relationship in the beginning turns into a psychologically symbiotic one that increases happiness from unconditional love, and additionally once the fetus eventually grows into an age of adolescence the relationship is physically and chemically symbiotic from physical actions.
      Using your logic more, when someone becomes too old to really give something in return to their offspring even in the psychological form, then if they are sent away to a nursing home to be visited very irregularly and not often, then they take on a parasitic relationship drawing from their offspring. The resources taken are economic ones to allow for nourishment, as opposed to a fetus taking just nourishment (although you could say that economic resources provide the additional nourishment that a mother feels chemically obliged to feed her hunger). If that old person had a stroke and lost feeling, is paralyzed, etc. then they too would not feel anything if pain was intentionally induced, so can they then be aborted too?
      If your answer to what I just said No, then you believe that life begins at birth. Believing this a fair assumption to make and that you would agree with, then how can you call a fetus a parasite? A parasitic organism is just that; an organism. Since organisms are alive, and removing them will kill them just like a tape worm would be killed, then you can't say life begins at birth. If removing from the body, or birthing, kills something then obviously it ends it's life.
      Since life is being ended by removal as it is not one with its mother by it being a parasite, then the killing of the fetus is a killing of an human.
      Using the logic you presented

And advertising that you are 'interviewing Ron Paul". It was like Morgan was too scared to let Paul speak because Paul MAKES SO MUCH SENSE! Morgan needs to question his role as a member of the press.

Another bad interviewer is Dr. Drew, as well as Jane Velez Mitchell. Always cutting a person's pertinent answer off before we're able to really know how somebody is thinking. Getting so tired of this type media.

    This is the worst interview Piers has ever done - its as if he thinks HE is the focus of the interview. I think he is incredibly rude when he talks over, interrupts and puts words in his mouth. What a contrast to how he kisses up to guests he likes, like Alec Baldwin. I'm also quite tired of him constantly praising how the Brits do everything. Who cares? If he wants to idolize that so much, he should go back! What an absolutely horrible interviewer he is.

      I am relieved to find that I am not the only person who thinks Piers interviewing Ron Paul is the worst interview I've ever seen; he is consistently interupting him before he finishes his response. He is extremely rude and disrespectful. He appears to have an agenda, very unprofessional. What a shame.

      I agree. I wish he would tell the truth. Tell Warren Buffet to write that big check (1-6 Billion would work, the more he gives the better he will feel) and stop saying that he wants to pay more taxes. I would love to work for Warren Buffet and pay 35% in taxes because that would mean I would make between 200k to 500k not bad for his poor secretary and she should consult a tax advisor so she can pay less taxes.

Why not start interviewing your own PM and your countires issues. I agree with Ron Paul we can not continue to be the Police of the world.

        So only Americans can be journalists here? He was asking a question about the position of a candidate running for office, not trying to press America into doing something. I would hope that if I or any other America embarked on a journalist career in Britain that we wouldn't be judged as Americans rather than simply our interviewing skills.

Just to reiterate, I don't understand how Piers Morgan came to have this job. He isn't talented enough and God knows his format is lacking. Yes, I have seen him suck up to Jerry Springer just recently. He BLATANTLY exhibits his snide behavior towards people that don't agree with his agenda.

    I have been listening to Mr.Morgan since he started this gig – I want to believe he's a smart Brit but he says things that make me wonder....for example – his query to Ron Paul tonight re: Mitt Romney & the poor....Romney clearly – very clearly clarified his initial comment – that he believed there was a 'safety net' for the poor but not necessarily for the middle class (but that he would also remedy the safety net for the poor if it was felt to be inadequate) – then why is Morgan not elucidating for the public what Romney actually said instead of just rather DUMBLY spout off the unintelligence that ever other journalist has spouted? OR IS IT that Morgan is just an OBAMA partisan and not really a journalist?? Morgan does not clarify the issues as much as he thinks he does – too much self loev? Clearly he's enjoying the new gig.

    Ron Paul is absolutely right. We need to pay attention to our own interests rather than the interests of regimes like Likud in Israel with two hundred nuclear warheads. Why do we assume that Iran is building the bomb and is going to attack Israel? Are they insane? How could a country even with one bomb attack a country with two hundred nuclear warheads and remain intact? How about some critical thinking or is that going to hurt our heads?

      See you understand this. Even IF and that's a big if Iran is building nuclear weapons how many bombs do they have 1? 2? 5? Israel has 200, America I don't even need to say and plus you think Russia, China, India or Iran want war? The elite oil owners in Iran don't want war because it would hurt them. Iran has not attacked a country since the 1800's and Russia and China are telling Iran to do whatever they have to, to resolve this nuclear crisis. Logical people lik you understand this but people are blind and ignorant and brainwashed. The real purpose is the elite's agenda to start WW3 and disrupt the oil supply as well as serve Israel's own interests. Ron Paul understands economics and foreign policy in fact I think Ron Paul's strong point is economics even though he's dead on, on foreign policy as well. 9/11 happened because of the corruption of your government and it's policies and intentions. They needed a false flag attack to serve various interests one being to hide the trillions of dollars stolen in defense money the other to serve the interests of the powers that be and go to war, capture resources and oppress there population.

    I somewhat enjoyed watching Piers, but after seeing him railroad Ron Paul repeatedly on tonight's broadcast I've lost interest. Dr. Paul, whether you agree with him or not is a very intelligent man, definitely well versed in the few full sentences Piers allowed him to utter. I figured Piers would of taken an open ear approach tonight to such a controversial man as Dr Paul. Instead he continued on in an arrogant manner, as if he held all the answers to questions directed to Paul. Long story short Piers reminded me of a mouthy adolescent gamboling about with his words while a patient wise man waits his turn to try to make a difference.

Ever notice how nearly EVERY media outlet these days fails to give Paul equal coverage? I'm in FL, and during this week's primary, they very often referred to "the THREE candidates" - Romney, Gingrich and Santorum. Unbelievable.

Anyone with half a brain can see (as can be read by the countless reactions to this television interview) that Mr. Morgan has been entirely rude and has not respected Dr. Paul, nor has he allowed him to respond to questions asked of him. Perhaps Mr. Jaker should realize that with half a brain he himself would be dangerous.....

      Way to go, Rose – that's right – s-l-e-a-z-y! CNN must be damn hard up to hire Piers Morgan. He's absolutely horrible at his 'job' – only wants to 'interview' people that pay lip service to his opinions. Wait, I think I know the reason he's able to be seen every night. Some Americans love the British accent and Piers Morgan fancies himself a Hugh Grant knock-off. We're not that hard up! Your infantile behavior really did show through last night - I guess you never realized just how out of your league you were when you (or whomever) decided to 'interview' Ron Paul. Keep that trap of yours shut and you might learn something about the USA.

    Ron Paul's (the libertarian) position on abortion makes no sense. He believes that one person has no right to access another person's money, but a fetus has the right to access another person's body (the mother)???? That's crazy. What would be a consistentt position is if he claimed the fetus has rights once it is OUTSIDE a woman's body. Why should a fetus (another person) have an unabridged right to another person's body???? But it seems his principles go out the window once it is a WOMAN's body. If it was men who carried babies, the issue woudl be clear - but it is still acceptable for others (i.e., a fetus) to be a woman in medical jeopardy. Life is a GIFT from another person (ie., the mother). It is in the category of a donation - life should not be something another person should be compelled to give to another person. Ron Paul's position on abortion is inconsistent, but if he was consistent - imagine the outcry he would have to endure. I don't think he's prepared to weather that as a 76 year old gynecologist. Too bad - he could be such a messenger for where the rights of the fetus end, and where the rights of the carrier (the mother) start and end. So disappointing.

    CNN owes Ron Paul another interview since Piers Morgan really did not let him answer hardly any of the questions that he asked him. It was unbelievable! He would ask a question and just as Ron Paul began to answer the question, Piers would jump in and either insert his own opinion over the top of Ron Paul or rather just change the subject. Unbelievable! What happened? Was Ron Paul about to speak some truth that Piers or CNN would rather he not speak?? We watch CNN mostly and have never seen anything like this.

      I definitely agree that Dr. Paul should be invited back for a REAL interview with a REAL journalist who can keep his/her political preferences to themselves and allow Dr. Paul to answer the questions posed fully after they are asked.
      Dr. Paul was treated like he wasn't there basically; what an embarrassment Piers Morgan is to the news industry and CNN! He should go somewhere and star in his own show; he can ask his questions and then change chairs and answer them; that would, it seems, suit his ego perfectly.

    Piers stated it was proven that raising taxes doesn't hurt economic growth. Anyone that states something is proven in economics is full of it. It can only be a theory and not proven. What the left gets confused on frequently about taxes is that government will seldom raise taxes when times are bad and they only raises them when times are good, so they see this correlation between a good economy and taxes that have been raised. Both sides of Congress know when you take money from the private sector there are downsides to it. To say it will definitely not hurt business is a foolish statement.

    What is wrong with CNN? First they out sourced Larry Kings job to the worst interviewer I have ever heard from another country. What, you could not find ONE person from the USA to take over from Larry? You had to bring in someone from England. The only person he is qualified to interview is himself, since he loves to hear his own voice... He is so stupid, he would probably interrupt himself.

    When will you CNN get it, he does not know how to conduct an interview.
    What he did to Dr. Ron Paul was not only mean by throwing loaded questions at him, he was extremely RUDE to Dr. Paul, a man who is a hundred times smarter then him (Piers Morgan), a sitting Congressman running for the highest office in the land. Dr. Paul deserves more respect then that.

    No one cares what Piers thinks. His job is to ask questions and then shut up, not interrupt before Dr. Paul before has a chance to answer. CNN, you should apologize to Dr. Paul and invite him back for a real interview not an ambush, with someone like, say, the master interviewer himself Larry King. You, CNN should send Piers packing back to the bubble gum worthless show he came from.

Morgan doesn't know the first thing about what an interview is. He needs to keep his mouth shut and try listening. His own opinions and misguided facts are of no importance to most of us. The guy was insulting, argumentative and just plain rude. He may have been an alright judge on a talent show, a contest winner and even a pretty good newspaper guy though as a non-Brit I will have to doubt the latter. Regardless, as an interviewer, he's a flop! Get rid of him.

    Ron Paul to Piers Morgan during his interview tonight when Morgan insisted that as the US president Ron Paul must attack Iran to support Israel.

    I don't even understand how come someone whose job till yesterday was making fun of "half-naked grandmas" in a talent show can say such a thing about a war between two other nations. This is CNN for God's sake!

    What a slimy limy! All Piers did is make himself look stupid because it was obvious he did not understand Dr. Paul's responses. That is why Piers could not follow up on them. How about Dr. Paul poling last in Nevada? We know that is a big lie. Just remember when they steal our vote they have pre vote propaganda that is in line with the theft. If the vote fraud continues it is time for a more serious revolution.

    I WILL NEVER WASTE MY TIME WITH PIERS MORGAN AGAIN! This was terribly RUDE! I could not believe after the big hype of saying he was breaking the media silence by having Dr. Paul on his show and THIS IS WHAT we get just another PIERS only show and a waste of the good doctors time! WHAT A JERK! Doesn't he know how many fans he could have gained by being courteous to OUR NEXT PRESIDENT! Dr. Ron Paul values all human life, especially our troops, they are our future, he does not want to put them in imminent danger without it being a life threatening situation but this jerk Piers wants the good doctor to say he would go and kill anyone if someone else says they are thinking of buying a weapon, does that sound right people? Say your neighbor is mad because you didn't smile at him yesterday, so he tells your other neighbor he thinks you are thinking of getting a gun to maybe kill you for no reason, SO with Piers Foreign Policy your other neighbor should immediately get a BOMB AND KILL YOU Because you MIGHT THINK ABOUT but did not even attempt anything? Like the good Dr. Ron Paul says what happened to diplomatic talks. Why is it everyone thinks America should keep going with this GANG WARFARE mentality! We are in worldwide GANG fights and we are the bullies taking over other GANGS territories. WE forget these are NATIONS! GOLDEN RULE!

The more I watch the news and see how Ron is totally ignored or in this case not allowed to express his ideas, the more I worry that this country is really in trouble.

        I still can’t believe what I was witnessing on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” (on 2/3/12) and the totally unprofessional interview conducted by Morgan.
        I have to question why Piers was so hostile to Dr. Paul. Was he influenced by something? Was it just an off-day for Piers? Or does he dislike Dr. Paul’s message so much that he would show his prejudice for the world to see.
        Dr. Paul is respected and loved around the world.
        I plan to give Piers Morgan a chance to redeem himself to millions upon millions of folks around the world who love Dr. Paul and his long term, unchanging message to bring peace to the world, bring all American troops back home where they’re really needed, stop the nation building, after we bomb some of them and his plans to save the trillion$ of US taxpayers’ money that we’re squandering under the guise of bringing democracy to the world through occupation and with ~900 military/contractor bases in 130 countries around the world.

        I’ll be listening closely to Piers’ future shows and am willing to give him another chance to interview Dr. Ron Paul again – I firmly believe he owes the world and Dr. Paul another chance to do a “PROPER” interview along with an apology to all who were offended by his offensive prosecutor style of questioning.
        peace to all,

    Thank you Piers for both demonstrating how liberal you are, and how liberal like you don't understand economics at all. If as President your primary focus were on the poor, then you will quickly have no money left to take care of them. Thye reality is it works in reverse....make sure the economy is working well, and middle class and rich are making good money, and THEN you will have the tax base you need to take car of the poor. Creating programs to take care of the poor is easy. Making sure there is money to pay for them is hard (see: Greece). For a perfect example of this in Europe...who has the strongest economy? Germany. Where is their focus? On the poor? No-on the economy. This is the reality that causes issues with your typical liberal mindset. Ron Paul is exactly right. If you REALLY care about the poor, you will make sure we have an economic and monetary policy that allows for growth. Then you will have fewer and fewer poor people to take care of, and more and more money to take care of them with. Focus on the poor, and opposite will occur, which is beneficial for no one.

    TO: RICHARD BAMBRIDGE- I could not DISAGREE WITH YOU MORE !!!! If Ron Paul would be given more time to answer questions and not be rushed by the commentator-I believe people would be able to get a clearer picture on where he stands on things-but the media has been doing this all along to him-- cutting him off not letting him finish –giving him an unfair advantage -not to mention the fact that the media has so blatently had a conspiracy against this man-they treat him as though he does not exsist in this race--they blatently leave his name out on purpose on news stories routinely-like when he came in 2nd in New Hampshire-all news outlets were not even mentioning his name-they would say Romney 1st and then skip to who came in third--never even mentioning the fact that Ron Paul came in 2nd!!! I myself am up in arms over this-its downright WRONG – UNJUST -CORRUPT and EVIL !!! They go to all sorts of lengths to rail road Ron Paul –do whatever they can to put him in an unfavorable light !

    The pt. Ron Paul made about the British youth was spot on--why should you be offended by what he said ??-That makes no sense to me at all --Did you even hear what he was saying??? All he was saying was:; WHY IS THE UNITED STATES EXPECTED TO JUMP INTO WAR WITH ISREAL ???? Piers was egging him on -but if Isreal attacks Iran you would'nt think we should join in ?? He was simply saying- WHY DOS'NT ENGLAND SEND THEIR YOUTH TO GO GET KILLED TO HELP ISREAL AGAINST IRAN??? IF YOU DON'T WANT TO –THEN WHY THE HELLL SHOULD WE WANT TO !!! WHY ARE WE EXPECTED TO !!! ?? He certainly did'nt mean he WANTED English youth to be hurt-he was making a GOOD POINT–that is all !! You can't see that ?? Isreal has already said they can defend themselves.....SO LET THEM !!!! I AM AN AMERICAN-- I AGREE WITH DR. PAUL-AMERICA NEEDS TO BUTT OUT OF OTHER COUNTRIES BUSINESS AND START FOCUSING ON THEIR OWN COUNTY AND HELPING THEIR OWN COUNTRY !!! -God knows, we need help!! WE SHOULD NOT BE POLICING THE WORLD AND IMPOSING OUR WAYS ONTO OTHERS !!! We should not be funding 900 bases in 130 countries-it is WASTEFULL MILITARY SPENDING THAT IS SERVING NO PURPOSE & Ron Paul is the only one pointing this out--We need to bring them all home and concentrate on protecting our OWN darn borders and building up our military HERE AT HOME !!! That's what's going to make our military strong--not spreading it thin all over the world !!! Paul says we should stop sending military aid oversees–brilliant idea!! We are BROKE !!! lLIVING ON BORROWED MONEY-& ENOUGH OF OUR OWN PEOPLE ARE STARVING!!! Charity needs to START AT HOME!!!! IT is that warmongering mentality that got us into this hole to begin with and we are sick of it !!!! Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate with sense in his head and the RIGHT ideas on how to make America strong again and keep us trully safe !! Our military back Ron Paul more then all the other candidates combined including Obama-– That says it all right there!! --our military IS NOT WRONG!!!! You respecfully sir, really need to go to Ron Paul's websites and learn more about him--because you are totally wrong about him !! Ron Paul is seriously our only hope to save America!!! You could'nt be more wrong- all this is aside from the fact that he is simply the most HONEST, UNCORRUPT candidate we have ever seen the likes of ! The man gives back HUGE sums of money to the US Tresury every year of his own accord to help pay down our national debt because he is a man of principle- he dosn't talk a good talk--this man has walked his talk for years and years never waivering in his ideals. Do some cking into him--if you take the time to -I promise you-you will be impressed with the record of Ron Paul !

    Piers Morgan should learn how to listen. He could learn a lot from his guests, and so could listeners, if he weren't so enamored with his own views. The Ron Paul interview is a perfect example and Morgan does this all the time. He asks a question, doesn't even make an attempt to listen to the answer, and jumps in with another question. Piers Morgan has bought the total liberal package. Why conservatives go on his show is beyond me. As with most of the media this show is just a guise for democrats and their agendas. What a waste of a viewers' time. How wonderful it would be if some network decided to ask serious questions and listen to serious answers from the candidates. Then voters would have some real information to use in making voting decisions.

But, as always Americans will shut out the truth, and follow the cattle to slaughter.... Ron Paul is a very true strong and willing to keep the usa free...

I am SOOO sick of having neighbours that think they ARE the police of the world too.LISTEN to Ron Paul, he had answers for Pushy Pierce and Pierce couldn't sit and shut up.. Where is Larry King, Larry would have allowed Ron to speak and at that WE as viewers and citizens and neighbours, WOULD have seen more of the great knowledge of Ron Paul.. Instead , we get Pierce and his puppet show... I agreewith comments above; why didnt Pierce just have a picture of Ron Paul there and just speak to the photo..

CNN is my favorite news channel and I believe for the most part, CNN is neutral. As I kept watching, I was so glad Paul answered very intelligently.

    Mr. Pierce, I used to respect you and your show until I saw how you completely skipped over or sped up certain subjects. You are probably trying to tell yourself that what you did was right, that you had a large number of questions to ask and the only way to ask all of them (including the completely pointless ones) was to interrupt Ron Paul with another. You opened the show with, "Ron Paul will not be your American President." How can you say things like that? Would you introduce Mitt Romney as "this man will be your American President." It infuriated and saddened me to realize that "they" have gotten to you too. I'd like to see Ron Paul challenge you to a 25-mile bike marathon.

    Many people are deeply discouraged at the state of affairs in America. They look at goings-on in Washington and see graft, power grabs, senseless regulations and spending and a government completely out of control, having grown far beyond the size and scope that a free people should ever permit. They’re confused about ongoing wars around the world. They are puzzled by the dampening of economic opportunity. People are worried about the future…

    These people are right! Some are active in politics and trying to make a change. Others are discouraged to the point of utter cynicism. There’s a third path here that I highly recommend and that is the path of winning hearts and minds through education, first of the individual, and then of others through every way possible…

    We must recapture what it means to be free. By this we need not all become policy wonks or waste our time studying the details of this or that political initiative or sector of life. We need to form a new approach to thinking about society and government, one that imagines that we can get along without such central management…

    We need to become more tolerant of the imperfections that come with freedom and we need to give up the illusion that somehow putting government in charge of anything is going to improve its workings, much less bring on utopia…

    To embrace the idea of Liberty is not a natural condition of mankind. In fact, we’re disposed to tolerate far more impositions on Liberty than we should. To love Liberty requires an act of the intellect. It involves coming to understand how all the things we love in this world were given to us under conditions of Liberty…

    We need to come to see government as it is, not as we wish it to be and not as the civics books describe it. And we need to surrender our attachments to government in every aspect of life. This goes for the right and the left. We need to give up our dependencies on the state, materially and spiritually. We should not look to the state to provide for us financially or psychologically…

    Let us give up our longing for welfares, our love of wars, and our desire to see the government control and shape our fellow citizens. Let us understand that; it’s far better to live in an imperfect world than it is to live in a despotic world ruled by people who lord it over us through force and intimidation…

    We need a new understanding of what it means to be a great nation; it should mean, as George Washington said, that our nation is a beacon unto the world, not that we conquer the world militarily, impose our will on everyone, or even remain number one in the GDP rankings…

    Our sense of what it means to be great must be defined first by Morality…

    We must come to imagine Liberty again and believe that it can be a reality. In order to do this, we don’t need songs, slogans, rallies, programs or even a political party. All we need is access to good ideas, some degree of idealism and the courage to embrace the Liberty so many great people of the past have embraced…

    Liberty built civilization. It can rebuild civilization. And when the tides turn and the culture again celebrates what it means to be free, our battle has been won. It could happen in our time. It might happen after we’re gone from this earth. But it will happen. Our job in this generation is to prepare the way…

      They do actually quite a bit in the world. They have the 3rd bigget military in the world after the US and China and do their share of work around the world. If you want to berrate countries for not doing their part then look to Germany, and most of the other wealthy European countries who do squat.
      Why does Piers asking a question regarding foreign policy mean that he is for it? I'm sure if Paul was for it, the Piers would have pressed from the opposite point of view. Nobody on here seems to understand that the purpose of an interview is not to be pro or against an interviewee , but simply to remain neutral. Just because Piers was not pro Ron Paul does not mean he was against him, there is a difference between being neutral and questioning someone's stance and being against them.

        First an interviewer should stay neutral. Piers was anything but that. How do you get neutrality from this interview? Sure you Brit's have the third largest military in the world. Look at the cost's of these war's. America with over 5000 soldier deaths and 3500 American contractor deaths. The total cost to America of its wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, plus the related military operations in Pakistan, is set to exceed $4 trillion – more than three times the sum so far authorised by Congress in the decade since the 9/11 attacks. Brits have had under 400 soldier deaths. How much has Britain spent? I cant find it anywhere. The Ron Paul POINT is that neither us nor the Brit's or anyone for that instance should be acting as interventionists.

I agree that non interventionism is best, but I don't like the way Ron Paul said that about the Brits because they do send their kids already and Piers does have family in the military. It would make sense that the US has lost more since they were our wars that we started. On a per capita basis, 400 Brits is like 2000 Americans though.

    I was an avid Ron Paul supporter until this interview, but I thought it was tasteless the way he said about let the British send their kids to die. Regardless of what your opinion of war is, he was sitting across from a British person (Piers) who has family in the military. It didn't show tact at all and made me think that Ron Paul would not be very diplomatic. On a side note, Piers' questioning Paul on abortion bordered on silly.

Our government is responsible 1st to their own people so they could not put their own people at risk in trying to do more than is actually needed for an ally.

      Quite surprised, Jim, to read that you totally did not understand Ron Paul when he stated to Piers to let the British send their soldiers off to war and die. Ron Paul stands for peace and diplomacy. He doesn't want to see any soldier sent off to war unnecessarily. His point was why is the U.S. looked at at being the country that has to police the world and initiate confrontration that will only end up with serious consequences for our servicemen and women? As he said, aggressive behaviour is for dictators and it's not what our country was founded on. - It's unfortunate that you absolutely minsconstrued Ron Paul's response. It's that kind of thinking that is going to keep us in the rut we have with the many warmonger politicians that are aiming at another war with Iran.

        Hey Lynne, I completely agree with you. I did understand what Paul was saying, but what I took issue with was the rude and undiplomatic way in which he went about saying it. Diplomacy is very important role for the president and I wanted Ron Paul to be president more than I've ever wanted anyone to be, but frankly after last night I have serious doubts that he is presidential material. Remember the Iraq war and Afghanistan after 911, the Brits were among the few who helped us in everything we did. Even the CVanadians did not go to Iraq. I just feel like the reason the world expects the US to police the world is because like with Iraq we usually instigate the conflict.

    because he was asking a presidential candidate their policy re war/military, not representing Britain. I wasn't aware that foreign journalists were judged on their nationality rather than interviewing skills. There was no need for Paul to make such a crass comment about our best ally or any other country for that matter. To me it sounded like Paul was not simply saying he would like to abstain from war but that he was saying he couldn't care less about bad things happening as long as it wasn't to Americans as if our lives are more valuable. I think it is right for any president to put Americans first, but Paul's comments seemed cold, nasty, and not needed IMO. It really turned me off and I was really gunning for him to win.

Paul was free to answer however he liked, I don't think he would/could be prodded by Piers into changing his position, but again that was not Piers' intention as the interviewer.

    What a horrible show. Ron Paul kept his composure even though at one point he had to say "please, let me finish...". Piers missed the point a couple times and didn't shut up enough to give Ron Paul a chance to explain his views. He should take some lessons from Charlie Rose who really LISTENS to his guests and seeks to ask questions to LET THEM EXPLAIN their views thoroughly. I don't watch Piers regularly and really won't now. I thought he wanted to talk more about why so many young people follow Ron Paul and that hardly came out during the interview. It was just a shame and a waste of what could have been a good hour of good discussion. I think Ron Paul stood his ground and made some excellent points – especially on foreign policy issues – so not all was lost.

    It is possible that Piers asked the questions without wanting answers. Maybe he hoped to plant seeds of doubt by his questions to Ron Paul...without letting Ron Paul have the chance to 'speak' on the matters, only the seeds of doubt in the questions would remain in the minds of viewers. Maybe that is how they get around 'outright putdowns'. Just ask a weird question and skip answer time and there you have it. In light of that, it is amazing that Ron Paul got any answers in* If Piers had been told to do this, he did not do it flawlessly...the Ron Paul fans have their #.

You have more respect for them during interviews. CNN please move Piers to an entertainment tonight type of show. He does not belong interviewing anyone other than for entertainment related stories. You've got the wrong person for the job. He has complete lack of respect. He is not a real journalist. He is tooting his own horn.

    I think Piers wishes he were a presidential candidate. Last night he was pretending he was in a political "debate" with Paul. Piers, your role is to interview which means ask questions (provocative questions are fine) and then let the person you are interviewing ANSWER the question.

    In case you need a definition Piers: An interview is a conversation between two people (the interviewer and the interviewee) where questions are asked by the interviewer to obtain information from the interviewee.

    How can we get that info if you are not letting the other person speak????

    Seriously CNN – get this man some psychological counseling. He needs help. Piers' wife, if you are reading this, please get your husband into cognitive behavioral therapy. He needs it. No ones ego should run their life.

    When I read reports regarding US involvement in foreign altercations the reports most frequently begin with "The US-led coalition...." The world has been quite comfortable with letting the US take the lead in policing the world. Statistics prove it- check out this BBC article. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-11107739 This is why Americans are tired of war, our children are dying for causes we don't even completely understand or support. Our country is being bankrupted by war and we are tired of it. The deaths of US military servicemen and women do not even compare to the thousands of soldiers that will come home suffering life-altering injuries and PTSD. We are watching drug-crimes sky-rocket on our southern borders-our government is supposed to provide for the COMMON defense...of OUR country – not the world. Israel has one of the best trained military's in the world. If they want to go to war with Iran, that is their business. Ron Paul is 100% right. Mr. Morgan, your interview was seriously lacking in depth and respect. I don't typically watch your show because I find you to be pompous. I watched strictly to see Dr Paul. – your interruptions were both rude and only highlighted your lack of ability to embrace serious, neutral journalism that informs and educates.

    First let me say that I watch and normally enjoy your show. However, I've noticed that you do tend to be short with some of your guests. Sometimes you do not allow them to fully answer your questions. This was the case with Ron Paul the other night.

    He did get you, though, when he answered your question about how he felt about US involvement in the Iranian/Israeli potential conflict. You were thoroughly surprised and nearly speechless for a second when he responded... why doesn't Great Britain control that situation and sacrifice her youth and money.

    Used to be that Great Britain controlled over half the planet and had wars at the drop-of-a-hat. Victoria even had the audacity to have herself referred to as "Empress of India". Remember the British "Empire"? Remeber too that the British controllled the American colonies before our independence and have a great deal of the slavery issue/burden to bear, but don't hear much of that blame going around either.

        First the founding father's were AMERICAN. Not British. Pretty sure they were not wearing redcoat's. The founding fathers lived in a time where absolute power and the rulers of that power abused it absolutely. People left England because they were losing their rights. The Bill of Rights, ratified in 1791, was the result of more than a century of experience with rights in America and many centuries before that in England. America has made it's own culture. Look at the two nations, they are distinctly different in almost every way. Sure they both have Christianity but I would attribute that to the Romans far before the Brit's. Also our democratic republic is closely connected with Rome. To claim the U.K. as the cultural capitol of the world is a ridiculous statement.

        Well in fact your ethnic orgin and culture does not change depending on whether you are fighting for separation or not. Your argument is like if democrats and republicans fought a war centuries later saying they both weren't American. It is revisionist history and ignores the fact that the revolutionary war was a civil war between 2 factions of British colonists, look it up and you will see that nearly all of the red coats are today fellow Americans. It was hardly like all the Brits in the colonies were unified against the British parliament, that is why there was a war.

        It is also important to remember that the rights being fought for already existed in Britain. The public over there were represented, the colonials were taxed without representation, but that was not the case over there. Talk to some Brits and you will see that our nations are similar in nearly every weay.

        As for culture, no you cannot attribute it to Rome. Greece was the beginning of democracy, but it was not the source of democracy here. The American colonies were British colonies which is why we have the legal (for the most part) and political freedom we have, which was rooted mostly before the revolution. Had any other country colonised the US then it is unlikely that the freedom that allowed such a revolt over taxation would have occured.

        As for the for of christianity, had it not been for protestant reforms in Germany and Britain the catholic church would not have changed and we would likely have kept a society that was religiously more like the middle east. If you understood history the idea of liberty and protestant reformation were closely intertwined.

Many of his warnings have come to fruition. My wife and I very much looked forward to the Piers Morgan interview. Several times, I found myself yelling at the TV..."Shut the F@#K up Piers!!!...and let the man talk." It was shameful, disrespectful, unprofessional, rude. British manners, perhaps? We'll avoid Piers Morgan now. While CNN has been our principle source of news coverage from its conception, I think this is a big smudge on CNN...like smelling dog crap on your shoe...and CNN needs to reevaluate this kind of shameful, unprofessional and demeaning performance.

    In addition, Piers looked visibly uncomfortable with the whole thing. I suspect his (anti-Paul) bosses at CNN forced Piers to do the interview this way. There is no other logical explanation for such a great interviewer like Piers Morgan to conduct the interview in such a shabby manner.

    After reading all these comments I have one more thing to say regarding the anti Britishness on this board. It shouldn't even enter the equation. You guys are judging an entire country based on Piers Morgan's interview skills, how crazy is that?? Put another way it would be like someone deciding that Americans are bimbos because Paris Hilton said something stupid. This issue has nothing to do with Britain.

    Dear Mr. Piers Morgan. I have now started to watch ur evening interviews, initially avoiding them! I am a British (Army) Veteran, living here in California.. and I was disheartend when you interviewed Presidential candidate Ron Paul last evening) when he challenged you to sent British Soldiers ("kids") to the Middle eastern (war(s). You did not respond to his terrible error, thus I wish you to remember, we are the strongest supporters of our United States Allies- in 'their quest' for peace in Afghanistan (and previously Iraq) Sir, I would like to remind you that MUCH British blood has been spilt in these countries- I feel insulted you did not remind Presidential Candidate- even though he shall loose at 10% of the vote- Dr. Ron Paul! Sincerely, John W. Boston

      I know I found the ignoreance on this board and of Dr Paul last night shocking. My apology to you and your great nation as an American. I have noticed other times on the show when people have made snide comments about Britain Piers has ignored it. I think he doesn't want to be seen too defensive of Britain and let's the rudeness of those insulting it speak for itself. Any educated person know the sacrafices Britain has given to the United States. But I agree, it would be great to see Piers correct this.

      Hi John:
      I just read your comment regarding being offended by Ron Paul's comment about sending British troops in to fight the battle. Ron Paul is a candidate that promotes peace and diplomacy. He does not want any soldiers lives being lost in these wars, whether they are American or foreign soldiers. The reason he made that comment was because people are so quick to jump into wars and many people in the U.S. feel it is our job to go in and "save" people. Firstly, we can'd do this – we're broke and have no money to be spending on these wars. Secondly, Ron Paul has stated in past debates that anyone who can so quickly say that we should look towards starting another war should consider if they would want to send their own loved ones into battle. Piers Morgan was pushing the subject of how America should follow through, and Ron Paul turned it on him to say that if you feel that strongly about it, send your country in with their soldiers and have them risk their lives. We are living amongst warmongers, and people are starting to wake up to the fact that we can't police the world and take on any further undeclared wars. The past Iraqi war was a fiasco. Let's learn a lesson!

    Pierce did not demonstrate fairness to Ron Paul. I always watch Pierce Morgan show every night and one thing I observe is that all the interviews he did, i.e. Jimmy Carter, John McCain, Newt Gingrich and even Herman Cain, he gave them the chance to make a statement on every questions wtihout interruption. In the case of Ron Paul, Pierce was rude to handle the interview. He was showing arrogance. It is very obvious that Ron Paul was frustrated on Pierce by alerting Pierce to stop and give him the chance to continue. Pierce is doing this kinf of interview fo put Ron Paul down in time for the Nevada Caucus.

    The reason that Piers is now practicing "journalism" in America is because of the crackdown on the Murdoch news monopoly in the UK; he is an asset to this mafia-like industry. Ever watch his testimony to the Leveson inquiry?(highly recommended) From that, one would know that he is not a journalist, but an actor, liar and part of the problem.

    There is no estrogen in Plan B. Plan B is progestin-only, as is EC in other countries, because estrogen is NOT well tolerated as EC and causes a lot of side effects. The "estrogen shot" method (google the Yuzpe regimen) isn't used anymore, which only goes to show how out-of-touch/senile Ron Paul actually is as a physician.

      if this is the way reporters like P. Morgan manipulate the news in front of millions of viewers – then I can only imagine what happened during WWII, Korea, Vietnam when no one was watching or the communications systems were primitive compared to today’s internet.

      I also believe that this fiasco isn’t over just because the interview ended. we should all be calling for another interviewer by the best CNN has to offer.
      CNN should also be apologizing to American Ron Paul supporters and those good folks around the world who are also concerned about the way Dr. Paul was treated from the beginning of the show.

      Did anyone notice how CNN reps today were mentioning Dr. Paul’s name far more frequently than usual? I’m sure our comments are getting through to them.

      Also, earlier this evening while watching CNN report on entrance polling results and all of the other stats – I’m beginning to wonder how much this influences voters.

    Sounds as if Morgan did a poor job here. Regardless, I coudn't vote for Paul. I get that we need to live within our means. I get that you shouldn't buy a house you can't afford, or anything for that matter, and that unless for some reason it's in the public's interest, we shouldn't bail anyone out for that either. But I draw the line at someone's life. Paul's answer to the question posed at one of the debates, that he would let a 20 something (or anyone for that matter) die, because he wasn't smart enough astute enough, or honest enough to buy health insurance, is just plain wrong. I fail to see how you can be so anti-choice and yet say this is the decision you'd make. We're human beings and we make mistakes. But money is not as important as someone's life. Folks, we're all in this together. That was very tell, and the people in the audience supporting Paul's answer, was so disappointing and scary to me. Is that REALLy the society we want to live in, where we'd rather let someone die, than fork over a few tax dollars? Is that really civilized? Think about it.

      He didn't say that. The media said that when they reported on it and you believed it. He did not say that and in fact, his exact response was "No" that he wouldn't just let them die and he went on to explain the situation. If you don't want to vote for Ron Paul-do your own research and make sure it's justified, not because of lies that the media told you in order to influence your vote.

He was a compassionate doctor and treated people who didn't have insurance as well as those who did. How many did he let die? Did you even watch this debate you cite? You certainly don't seem to know what happened in it...yet you state the events as fact. Sounds like you read a typical article that was purposely full of inaccuracies.

    I'm sure CNN management is looking at the repercussions of the Ron Paul interview very closely – and it goes without saying that they're taking some sort of internal action or have have warned him. Perhaps they've discussed our many comments and what we're calling for in our comments. Hopefully other potential guests will refuse to be interviewed by Morgan. Perhaps CNN will apologize for the way Dr. Paul was treated and offer to redo the interview with CNN’s best interviewer.

    We should continue to monitor the Piers Morgan show to see if improvements are made or will Morgan continue to mistreat guests like Dr. Paul? I believe this particular show was unlike the many others – so there’s a level of prejudice evident with the show in question.

You should remain calm at this news, go pick yourself up a copy of "The Law". Be astounded by the depravity of our current law compared to "The Law" by Frederic Bastiat. Written in 1848 as a response to socialism in France, this book essay is just as relevant today as it was then. You will also see the similarities to socialism and BO's regime.

You might as well have talked to a mirror the whole time all we heard was you firing question after question without giving the man a chance to even reply. Ron Paul was trying ever so politely to answering just one question before he was probed with another. It was as if though you were given the directive to make him look foolish how ever you could. I used to like to watch you, but you made me angry just watching the show, now it was clear you were just another puppet whose strings were pulled by your media bosses. If you watched your own interview back I really cant see how you could be proud of yourself as an unbiased journalist. it was amazing to watch. horrifying but amazing that when a man says we don't have the moral right to invade a country that has done nothing to us at the moment, you said but Iran is different, and wen Ron Paul said why does the US have to be the world police and why don't the British send their own kids in harms way you fell silent.

    Piers – WHAT A POMPOUS WINDBAG. I have never seen such an awful interview. No one cares what he thinks, even if he's interrupting others with his crass, classless paparazzi-style journalism – just spitfire as many questions as you can at your target, and if they don't tell you what you want to hear, spitfire more.

    I can't believe a television program would give him regular airtime, and I'd be even more surprised if anyone gave him any credibility. I will never watch his program again.

    From a very early age, Piers Morgan was nourished, not on milk, but a steady diet of British tabloids and tabloid culture. He absorbed the openly combative gloves- off style of getting the story first by any means necessary rather than getting the story right the first time. He eased seamlessly into the killing fields of endless circulation wars. Piers carries his scars with pride - even as Rupert Murdoch's empire (for which Piers was an enthusiastic foot soldier) is under siege for phone hacking and influence peddling. Piers (somewhat nervously) appeared before the Leveson Commission in the UK on his role in this culture of crime in pursuit of news. The past is never completely buried and can claw its way to the surface at the most inopportune times - stinking to high heaven. CNN, curiously deaf to its viewers' opinions, may soon regret engaging this highly-touted but curiously underperforming British asset. Meanwhile, we click our remotes in search of other choices.
