Piers Morgan on Andrew Breitbart: "A fascinating character, complex, very divisive"

In the wake of Andrew Breitbart's surprising death, Piers Morgan spoke candidly with Brooke Baldwin on "CNN Newsroom" earlier today.

The conservative blogger was a regular guest of "Piers Morgan Tonight," appearing as recently as Tuesday evening following the Republican primaries in Arizona and Michigan.

Sitting across the table from Breitbart less than two days ago, Morgan says he saw nothing to indicate any health issues: "He looked really good, and we said that on air. I'm just as shocked as anybody about what's happened."

The "Washington Times" commentator frequently served on political panels for "Piers Morgan Tonight," drawing rave reviews from the host:

"You always knew with Andrew, he had a ferocious brain, incredible energy," remembered Morgan. "I didn't agree with a lot of what he said, but I loved the passion with which he said it."

Tune in at 9 p.m. ET/PT as friends and colleagues, including Arianna Huffington and Dana Loesch, reflect on Breitbart's short life.

    I wish he would have taken Hannity, Rush, Palin and all the other big mouths that shame our country when they bad mouth our leader president Obama.

      Got no love for you if you don't respect the oebgddall. That was the second most greatest day of my life. If loving oebgddall is wrong, I don't want to be right I could go on for days.

      What could I build as practice for dinlbuig my own home one day?I've got experience laying tile, constructing furniture and sanding finishing wood. How about a small shed? Like, an 8x8x8 shed on a concrete foundation? I'm sure I could do it, but is there a better beginner structure or something I can build? I don't want to start with a birdhouse I know I can do that, unless you insist.Maybe steps I could take up to a house, like starting smaller and simpler, and moving up to bigger and more complicated things?Just to reiterate, I want to get hands-on experience that will prepare and test me on the skills to dinlbuig my own house in the future.

    RIP, a very curious man! Perhaps he knew he had heart condition and his life line was going to be short, so he used
    all his energy in this life to push his ideas and agenda, very little of which I agreed with, but he was an interesting guy from a PR POV. He knew how to milk the media, and he WAS Drudge's Beatch as he said himself. On last appearance on Piers show, Andrew came clean-shaven, first time every, and he looked GOOD!
