READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.
As unlikely as it might seem, it turns out that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak remains one of the few people to have met the already world-famous baby of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Joining Piers Morgan in studio Thursday night, the man affectionately called "Woz" revealed the interesting circumstances which led to him first meeting "Kimye," and more recently, their newborn daughter:
“I've seen a lot of babies,” he explained in his primetime interview. "And a baby represents the love between the people, and that meant more to me and the love that Kim was showing to Kanye, just because he was interested in technology and companies, she - as a birthday present - she had me up there to meet him."
When asked about the baby’s name, Wozniak claimed not to have known. However, just before “Piers Morgan Live” wrapped up its initial airing, the news was broken!
In the heat of a nation-wide debate over the legalization of marijuana, Abby Huntsman, Marc Lamont Hill and Kai Ryssdal were asked to debate the ethics of the self-proclaimed “Pot Moms,” a collection of women who will be featured on “Piers Morgan Live” Friday evening.
These “Pot Moms” insist that smoking marijuana makes them better wives, and better parents. One mom defended her stance saying that she detests “being judged for doing something nontoxic and totally organic – enjoying a god-given plant – by moms who suck back two bottles of chardonnay like sports drinks, is hard to swallow. A drunk mother is pathetic.”
Radio journalist and host of "Marketplace," Ryssdal addressed that rationalization, asserting that anything (that is legal) should be consumed in moderation:
“If you have children in your care, you shouldn't be guzzling anything… You should be sensible about it. Have a glass of wine but, you know, I mean, come on, use your head.”
Watch the above video clip, as both Huntsman and Hill (co-hosts of "HuffPost Live") add their insights and perspectives on the concept of mothers smoking marijuana.
As Thursday revealed the six jurors who will serve on the upcoming George Zimmerman trial, Jeffrey Toobin, Jo-Ellan Dimitrius and Gloria Allred joined “Piers Morgan Live” to offer their reaction to the all-female group.
Warning against predicting attitudes, behaviors, and outcomes based upon “stereotypical thinking about how women or how men or how African-Americans feel about an issue,” Toobin, a CNN legal analyst, gave an example to illustrate his thinking:
“In sexual assault cases, you might think that women would be more sympathetic to victims and good prosecution jurors. Women historically have been very tough on women victims, especially in cases where consent is an issue. So, you know, women can be very tough on other women," he explained. "African-Americans can be tough on other African-Americans. Here, I don't think there is a clear sense, at least not one I'm aware of, of how women generically feel about the case and it sounds like a pretty fair jury to me.”
Dimitrius, a professional jury consultant, suggested that though it may seem like "a very fair panel based upon all of the life experiences and the background of the six of the jurors that ultimately have been chosen,” attitudes about guns and self-defense will have an impact during the decision-making process:
“You do have a woman on this panel who used to have a CCW, a concealed weapons permit, as does her husband, but she let it lapse which to me indicates that maybe she got involved in it because her husband wanted her to get involved but she didn't want to carry around a gun," said Dimitrius. "The defense could have been looking at women in such a way that they probably, and the research that they did before this case, evaluated the fact that women don't normally get into physical altercations and fights.”
