Only in America: Facebook furor

On Wednesday's edition of "Piers Morgan Tonight," the host used his "Only in America" segment to let you know that somebody's watching you.

"I'm talking about the uproar over employers asking job applicants to hand over their Facebook passwords," Piers explained. "Nobody - except the offending employers, of course - thinks it's a good idea. Users are outraged. Facebook is outraged. Even the federal government is outraged!"

Piers asked the "appallingly nosy employers" why stop at Facebook passwords? He suggests they might as well demand the keys to their house, access to their private email account, check inside their garbage cans and much more.

"But here's the deal," he said. "I want to see YOUR details first. Fair's fair, right?"

While Facebook has become a global phenomenon- fueling revolutions, spreading breaking news almost as it happens "it's not a public forum for information unless the user wants it to be," Piers explained. "Everyone on Facebook is entitled to the precise degree of privacy they seek from their settings."

Some advice from Piers: "Next time one of these employers tries this little stunt, delete them- they're no friend of yours."

    I had to endure Lionel Ritchie's "music" in the 70s and 80s. Then he went away and all was well except for when I was in a store or elevator and "Hello" or some other crap would play. But now he's back. What can I do to prevent his new music from entering my ear canals and penetrating my brain, causing irrepairable harm? Please just go away!
