READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Tonight Piers Morgan welcomes Congresswoman Michele Bachmann to the program, for a face-to-face, spirited discussion on everything from Rush Limbaugh to Barack Obama to Kirk Cameron.
In response to the recent controversy surrounding Limbaugh's comments on Sandra Fluke, Bachmann addressed the overwhelming amount of attention, drawing from her personal experience:
"I have gone through myself, and experienced, more things said about me and I have never seen this level of outrage on the left about what left-leaning commentators said about me."
As the fiery sit down continues, the Republican from Minnesota details what she deems to be an imbalance in criticism and negativity as related to gender and political party:
"If you're a conservative woman, it seems like there is no level of vitriol that's beyond the pale. I've been on the receiving end of it. We all know Governor Palin has been on the receiving end of it," Bachmann tells the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "I think that maybe that's what we should learn out of all of this, is that on both sides, we want to pay attention to what we're saying."
Tune in this evening at 9 p.m. ET/PT as the lively chat with Michele Bachmann continues on such topics as gay marriage, the economy, and healthcare.

Of course the difference re the comments about Bachman is that they are true.
Pierse – -This was one of the most deplorable interviews Pierse ( the closet leftie has ever given) Pierse was insulting to Michelle Bachman – -tried to talk over her constantly – -insisted of reving up the gay marriage question – –Michell – -you dis an outstanding job of not allowing Pierse to pigeon hole you – – -gay s have their rights – -social issues are simply fuel for the Obama fire to try and find an issue that will boost Obamas appeal to women – -very political – -Obama care is a disaster – -but not nearly as bad as the socialist direction the Democrats are trying to ytake America – – Obam,a demenes icrael, tries to rule the country like communist china – -next one child per family – -how about it Pierse – -put Americans to work – – -block the EPA from stifiling the economy – -stop throwing money to the Unions as payback – -cronie Capitalism – – A great smile, a good orator – -and so was Hitler – – -what a bunch of C **** we are in with the current Democrat 's – -they even make Ron Paul look semi intellegent – – -how about religious freedom – -Oh, the Obama State want's to do away with that also – -:( – -
Really, if your going to insults someone please spell their name correctly, it's PIERS, Not PierEs! Republican ignorance never ceases to amaze me.
Are you kidding? Bachmann wouldn't answer one question that Piers asked.
She's the one who talked over him....not to mention changing the subject (as only politicians can do) to avoid answering the question. I love how she instantly turns the tables and plays victim. What an idiot!
Typical nonsense from GOP supporters, run their mouths about something they know little about, first You need to go back to school, You can't spell, makes it hard to figure out what is bull or just ignorance . Michelle B. is in denial about who she is and how important what she says isn't. Your hateful comments sound like a broken record, You people need to come up with something new, same old hate and lies, pitiful state the gop is in !!
You just repeat what you listen to over and over and wouldn't have a clue if you were asked explain anything. Kind of like a parrot. And by the way, learn to spell
If you whatch Piers at all often, you should know that, though he is not perfect in everything he cares about gay rights, that he has friends who are gay and this issue something he is willing to sacrifice things for, is something he believes in personally and considering how very catholic he is, likely to be a painful one, as the catholics of today are less given to accepting liberal catholics than they used to be decades ago, or maybe they let the young be liberal and start to put the thumb screws on older catholics who have ideas of their own, we are in puritanical times in some ways. The pope says he does not like relativism, which means people who are catholic but disagree with the hardest of the vaticans lines in a number of points and relativists are given missionary treatment, hauled over the coals and re-taught their catechism from line one. Missionary treatment means being very tough on relitivists if my experience is anything to go by, relativist and other types of badies are the rotten apples who might spoil the whole lot, so they are pretty insulting with them on a very regular basis, occasional insults dont take so much out of you as a never stoppping rain of insults do and suggesting recalitrants will go to hell with a energy that makes you scared of their bad blood but then I live in Spain where catholics are, maybe, a bit more aggressive than they are in countries where they are a minority religion. Piers is likely to have to suffer a bit of persecution for this part of his convictions, as people in Russia suffered for not being communists, minus the actual physical trails of those who did not agree with the Soviet Union unless he totally cuts himself off from catholics, ie., his family for example. I odnt think he would say this just for political gain for the ideas he prefers with whats at stake for him as a catholic with this opinion, he would only say it if he has deep convictions on the subject. rose macaskie madrid.
How can you justify her statement? This is just another example of how the neo-cons/.teadrinkers try to justify idiotic satements by their talking heads. limbaugh is a drug addicted POMPOUS A _ _ who feels that he can say anything he wants to and will not be challenged.
It is extremely difficult to take seriously someone with this low level of literacy ! Studies show that the collective Republican IQ has been declining ever since the fundamentalists have reached heights of recognition in the party. This point keeps getting made over and over with paragraphs such as the above being posted over and over again.
piers morgan is using the gay rights agenda to only try and gain publicity for himself, how pathetic of him to try and feed off this and fuel it even further
Stop it. She is crazy, and that is the truth.
Please get this Bachmann woman off the air. She can go support Rush L. off the air as much as she wants.Its unbearable to keep seeing this. "I did that" "I did this""I am the only woman" "I am the only solution". If you were-we would have elected you.
She often seems a bit crazy to me but the problem is that her crazyness seems to be pretty common among populations now and that all over the world. The religions seem to have made a come back in some parts of the populations of many countries and as in the times when their numbers were going down, which were also very liberal times when even the church dignatories were being liberal balanced and sensible or the ones I knew appeared to be, we all forgot about how crazy they can get and started to see only the good side of religion so they are going to take us off our guard. The victorians wrote a lot about religous people who go too far but we are a long way from victorian times and have forgotten to keep a weathered eye on the religious or, when we ourselves are religious, on the more extreme of the religious, we need to remember they are not so innocous as we have started to feel they are. An islamist in American last week said it should be the job of the faithfull of Islam to keep an eye on the islamist community and make sure that the crazier part of Islam was not getting an upper hand among the faithfull, well he spoke well and christians also need to be on their guard against extremism in christianity. We need to talk of the things Bachmann says because so many other people hold her veiws and they talk a lot with anyone they can get to listen so as to convert people, so if we aren't pulling our weight and trying to explain the problems we have with them in such a way as to stop them getting too crazy, we are going to wake up to find that while we slept they have grown in numbers and have taken their craziest points a long way and got us all into a tangle tha twe will find ourselves regretting, that I am regretting already. rose macaskie madrid.
That is the truth Landon.
I remember the National Organization for Women coming out against the Newsweek cover. Ask Nancy Pelosi what she thinks about Bill Maher using the c-word to describe any women, and I'll bet you'll hear an earful. It's long past time for this to stop. Newt Gingrich was afwul to Michelle Bachmann. Rick Santorum's Iowa campaign chair sent out emails saying women serving in positions of authority over men was not God's plan. Enough, already. Congresswoman Bachmann, I'm a liberal Democrat, and I think no-one should call you anything but Congresswoman, Ma'am, or Ms. Bachmann. I'm sorry that Bill Maher is a rude, vitriolic person, and I will work harder to make sure women of all political stripes get fair treatment.
Gosh I'm glad to see some Lib. Dems being fair minded! Morgan's so biased I'm surprised any one who isn't a liberal will even go on his show. What a hypocrite to worry only about what Limbaugh said. How about the c__t, tw__t, sl_t, words tossed around along with other insults towards Palin, Bachman, Coulter, Malkin, and even Hillary when she opposed Mr. O???? Where was the outrage against Marr, Matthews, Mr. Ed, Olberman, and their ilk? It was nice to see the article by Kirsten Powers about this, about time someone spoke up.
Agreed. Rush just happens to be the current target, but ALL of this type of divisive hate-talk should be stopped by standing up as citizens and demanding it. Whether it is Limbaugh, Olberman or Maher, we're sick of ALL of it.
Stop buying from the sponsors of this type of show, and amazingly, it will start to fade away. This is not about free speech, it's about people using the free markets to improve the level of civility and dialogue in this broken country.
First, Rush tried to bully a woman into silence. When that didn't work, he whined that HIS free speech was being threatened. When that didn't work, he apologized, but the next day revoked his apology, blaming what he said on the Left. Now he has declared war on the sponsors who left, and is bullying the ones who remain into staying, by calling for his listeners to boycott any sponsor who leaves.
Remember in November: this vile Rush Limbaugh is the true inner voice of the Republican Party.
So who is the official "inner voice of the Democrats" Bill Maher??? Maybe Keith Olberman?
Johan Liljegren November 13, 2007 Jeff,Great to get some new blog tips! However, the link to Matt Evans' The Admin Exchange is most likely inrrcoect, as it is the same as the one to Salesforce Times.My Google karma doesn't give me any tips on where to find it either. Do you have an updated link to it?Regards//Johan
Sam with the showing scalp flattop particular about the point it made. Very much to then for, as you may have noticed, above that.
Thomas mc: You are the classic example of a determined ignoramus. You choose to be ignorant of the facts and that is just a shame. If you didn't have bumper stickers to read, you wouldn't know what to think. Piers can be enteraining and humerous, and he is also a snide, intolerant egomaniac without shame. I am done with most of CNN's so called "news anchors and journalists".I don't think I can read these posts anymore either. Its just too depressing.

I'm starting a campaign to send Michele Bachmann to Mars! Her and Sarah Palin.......Please help!
I'm starting a campaign to send G.W. Bush and his entire administration to live in Iraq! I also want Dick Cheney to be put on trail first in Iraq
What a great idea.
You cannot win with liberals! They can rip anyone they want to and get away with it. Really?? We have so many things to worry about... Jobs, Gas,Food.... Who cares about the crap he ask about!
And while you're at it. . . . send that Blowhard Rush Limpaugh with them to Mars.
He can be their personal Butler.
Really? Which "trail" were you planning to send him down?
Are you capable of building a vehicle capable of going to Mars? If so, I will gladly contribute. If not, you are a scam artist tring to bilk people.
Conservatives need to boycott left wing zealot supporters also. That is the only way to have a fair and equal forum.
Mrs. Bachman and Mrs. Palin are powerful, political candidates seeking national office. The comments have been harsh against them by their GOP opponents and Democrat opponents. Tough skin is required especially by women candidates who are judged more harshly than men. But that arena is quite different than the 3-day national radio rant by Limbaugh against a private citizen (not running for public office), a private citizen wanting to testify about health care insurance benefits in a congressional hearing supported by taxpayer money. Limbaugh should attack the merits of the issue not the young woman. And the "right" has pressured advertisers in campaigns. The most recent one was against JCP who hired Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson.
Fluke is a political operative, carefully chosen by arch-partisan Nancy Pelosi, who lied about the cost of birth control pills that can be purchased for $40 a month.
I'm afraid, the argument that women if they happen to be politicians, are fair game for personal vitriolic criticism sounds pretty lame. It weakens lib's attack on limbaugh for his nasty comments by exposing a double standard.
Thanks Jeff for the post. There are a couple of other Chicago area sflrsaoece admins that are going to be authoring my blog as well, Ryan Klein and Dave Beaudoin. They have great ideas to share and tons of sflrsaoece experience.
The comments made by Bachman are true. The left lives by such a glaring hypocrisy that it is laughable. The left have called Bachman and Palin much worse than this, but that was OK, apparently. Lefties make me want to puke.
It's a free market and a free world here. You don't like what you perceive as hypocrisy by the left, then DO something about it.
oh, right, I forgot, SHE'S the victim (TM).
How does Rush's comments compare to those of DON IMUS?. Wasn't Don fired and wasn't there plenty of verbal outrage. We have short memories.
Why was Don Imus fired ? Google the answers. Let's get our media honest and throw Rush out.
Really???? Where are your standards?
Michele Bachmann has a narcissist axis. She will always be the victim (in her mind) and she will always be the epitome of what is acceptable (again, in her mind).
What on earth is she talking about? Has she not seen or heard the constant remarks about Hillary Clinton? How about the Attorney General under President Clinton, Janet Reno? How about Margaret Albright? How about Oprah and Ellen? Come on, the right has always attacked women that are strong and independent and educated.....
MAKE her answer the questions instead of her "auto-responding" with what she wants to say.
Michele seems mentally ill. I feel sorry for her, but let’s not let her on the air anymore. She bores me!
I'm sorry but I had to change the channel. I got so frustrated listening to Bachmann sidestep the Limbaugh issue, making up excuses for that disgusting piece of trash, I almost threw my remote at the TV. This woman doesn't deserve to represent anyone in congress.
I see you only post those statements that inflate your ego and from a bunch of liberal nuts.
Piers.,.how could you let Michell Bachman not answaer one question you asked? You are a great interviewer and she has no staying power...did you have to let her walk all over you with her pre-prepared statements? Your job is to get answers and you got none. You just let her dance around you.
Michele Bachmann is the first person I would expect to be outraged by Rush's remarks. She is not the holier than thou person I thought she was.
It's interesting how liberals will let nasty vitrole stand as long as that hate speech is coming from a liberal man directed at a conservative woman. Double standard anyone?
will Barack Obama be returning that million dollar campaign donation from the woman hating Bill Mahrer?
you should try not to confuse hating women with hating conservatives for the being the bigots and racists that they are. The first step to recovery is admitting you're a bigot.
So uh, what's the difference between hating Bachmann for being a conservative and hating Fluke for being a liberal lying about the cost of birth control to make a political point?
Yes, President Obama did not accept the contribution.
Full moon tonight...enough said..
All she seems to do is slam her president. Seems to be what she is best at.
Jane, Jane. It's fine if liberals call anyone who disagree with them these things. If Rush had said these things about Sarah Palin, he'd be offered a show on any of the state sponsored media outlets!
hey everyone complaining about liberals getting away with saying things: then how come the conservative side doesnt strike back like liberals did against Rush? I'll tell you why, its because when a liberal DOES say something against women(which isn't often) the conservatives just agree with it, men AND women. Your own bigotry stops you from speaking up. Very sad really.
Folks I present Sean's post above as evidence that liberalism is a certifiable mental disorder.
Sean just visit any conservative internet forum after a high-profile liberal man insults Palin or Bachmann. It's not pretty. Of course the fact that you don't hear about this conservative outrage says more about the biased nature of the MSM.
Morgan looked like an intellectual amoeba next to Michelle. It's like he couldn't even understand her what she was saying.
She is a raving lunatic.....and Pierce was brilliant.
I dont know how everyone on CNN can interview the republicans on healthcare and not call them out on the blatent lies they are repeating over and over again...
The government is not trying to hold your healthcare over your head and tell you what you can and cannot do anymore than they already do today... The end goal is not the gov inbetween you and your doctor, its to REMOVE the corporate approval for the doctor to do their job, its beyond absurdity... There are various governmental and private health commities with Doctors who approve various practices etc...
The arguement is over health insurance being run by a private company who's sole purpose is shareholder profit, a company selling health insurance dissaproves coverage based on what is profitable for them and what is allowed or guidlined practices deemed by the federal gov and other medical associations...
That means if you have some pre-existing conditions or some medical need, based on a cost/benefit analysis they will deny you coverage....
Every person has the RIGHT to have at least the option of a health insurance "company" that is NOT FOR PROFIT... AKA the Federal Government, like every other civilized country has.... you can leave the free market there if you want, watch they all die off as everyone moves to the federal health insurance which will always approve your coverage, and then in turn with the more customers the fed insurance "company" will have better leverage for medical costs..
Andrew name one other "civilized country" WITH A POPULATION EQUIVALENT TO AMERICA that has working government run healthcare.
Um, China? India? Yea see my point?
Heck even the smaller countries that do have it are going broke.
Pierce you did an excellent job with Michele. She is such a babbling kook that it's hard to get her to answer questions directly. It reminds me of when Anderson Cooper asked her a question about Medicare and she went off on this crazy, loony rant about Obama's trip to India costing more than the Iraq war. And Anderson could never get her to get back on topic. She just kept on spewing out this load of deliberate lies and trash talk about our president. But you did as good a job as anyone could with her. You pressed her back to the direct questions. It's amazing that she can spew out all of her nasty, filthy rhetoric toward others and somehow feel like such a victim when someone calls her out on it. And what truly amazes me is that as anti-gay as she is.....SHE MARRIED A TOTAL FLAMER! I mean the first time that I heard the guy open his mouth I was shocked! But that's the kind of bizarre world that you live in when you belong to a kooky religious cult. And of course I am not talking about Christianity. Most Americans identify as Christian. People like her and Kirk Cameron are in what could only be described by any rational person as a religious cult. But anyway, you did a wonderful job. Thanks for a fun filled and enlightening show.

What in the world are you talking about? Did you intend to reply to a different comment?
Bachmann is right that this whole issue is about ObamaCare.
Piers should have shut up and let Michelle answer the questions instead of rudely interrupting. CNN would be better off putting him on a plane back to England. I am not religious at all, but the left wing like Piers like to shove their opinions down the throats of everyone. CNN went downhill hiring that Brit.
Michelle has an advantage when she is using BS to Baffle Brains. She has almost no movement or expression left in her face, no muscle response, no "tells" that reveal her real reactions. Nothing moves but her lips and her eyelids. Surely this is another form of cheating on camera. She interrupted with impunity, talked over the host, denied the obvious, refused to take a stand on Limbaugh's comments and advertised herself as "the mother of 25 children", all without moving a muscle. Oh Michelle, next you'll be telling us you catered the Last Supper.
It's hard to take anything she says seriously when she flashes those french manicures. Just as fake as she is.
