READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
On Tuesday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed actor and comedian Richard Belzer to the program for his unique and entertaining blend of perspective and insight.
Joining the host for a world exclusive interview, the longtime star of NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" shared the dilemma he'll take with him to the polls in November:
"The deciding factor for me is which person, when they're in office, will cause the least amount of suffering on the planet? And I know there might be a subtle distinction," says the man who has played Detective John Munch for nearly two decades. "This is a pretty stark choice that we get to make between [Barack] Obama, who I have problems with, and [Mitt] Romney, who I have more problems with."
Joining Belzer during the segment was well-known political satirist and author P.J. O'Rourke who offered his economic analysis of the country, in the process, referencing a certain well-known political figure from the host's home country:
"Margaret Thatcher made the point that sooner or later you run out of other people's money," began the 64-year-old journalist. "It sometimes seems like there are way too many rich people. And I may say, having recently been to Manhattan, it certainly looks that way to me down there. But once you start taxing the living heck out of them...they vanish."
Quick to rib his long-time colleague Belzer, a noted conspiracy theorist, quipped: "They don't have to vanish. They know how to hide their money, P.J., you know that."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Belzer and O'Rourke join Morgan for a segment unlike any in recent memory.

Mr. Booker is the calming voice in this frenzied campaign. I hope to hear more from him during the Democratic National Convention. He is passinate about his beliefs and can explain them without the rhetoric.
Last night, sym rand, atlas shrugged ie. Washington is driving off the cliff–and –when you treat the able ricjtoo badly they disappear!!!ate we about to blow ourselves up, and will the rock who know how to rum things - will they come back andfix us up???
It's funny that the gutless Piers Morgan cut out the part of the interview where Belzer stated that if Piers showed up on the set of Law and Order he would arrest him for his illegal wiretapping complicity when Piers worked for Murdoch in England. Piers is such a smuck.
You go girl! I could scare Piers myself. Belzer is the bomb. Can I still say that trite old term? Just love Belzer.
Mr. Morgan obviously doesn't want to suffer through Belzer's brilliant, restrained evisceration of both him and P.J. O'Rourke more than once. That's one of the reasons the clip posted here starts well after Morgan gets his tuchus handed to him on a platter by Belzer, not with snide insults of the kind employed with such relish by Morgan, but with an informed and intelligent kindness that stands out in stark contrast to the CNN host's sneering vapidity.
You are so right. Belzer is worth listening to and should have the entire show. Piers is often boorish and off putting. The man must receive sympathy for he is suffering from ADHD what with all the starts and stops with different guests every few minutes.
A provision of ObamaCare is set to punish roughly two-thirds of U.S. hospitals evaluated by Medicare starting this fall over high readmission rates, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News.
Starting in October, Medicare will reduce reimbursements to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates – which refers to patients who return within a month – by as much as 1 percent. The maximum penalty increases to 2 percent the following year and 3 percent in 2014.
Why isn't MSDNC and CNN not reporting this!
obamacare is throwing the seniors and middle class under the bus!
obama wants seniors to die!
There is no recovery. Dont let the numbers fool you... they have been cooked for a long time now. Obama has wrecked the economy and added over 5 trillion to the deficit with nothing to show for it. In the first two years he could have passed any bill he wanted but didnt even think about jobs. His "laser like" focus was on the golf course and lavish vacations while Americans lost their jobs. He is the biggest clown to ever sit in the Presidency... and he is done come November. I just hope there is something left to recover.
