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.
On a day which saw North Korea warn "the moment of explosion is approaching fast," on Wednesday evening Piers Morgan asked guest P.J. Crowley to assess the likelihood of an imminent nuclear conflict:
"I really don't think so," said the former Secretary of State for Public Affairs, when asked if the United States has reason to fear a forthcoming incident: "The bottom line is, North Korea is crazy but they're not suicidal. The Kim family business, they want that to continue. The Kim family reign, they want to continue. So they'll make a lot of noise. But I don't think that they're going to jump off the cliff."
Meanwhile, Wednesday evening's program also featured an interview with Michael Reagan, the author behind an eyebrow-raising op-ed in an Ohio newspaper that linked same-sex marriage to "polygamy, bestiality, and perhaps even murder."
The adopted son of the former president, Reagan explained his point of view, noting that his issue is not with sexual orientation, but specifically, the redefinition of marriage:
"About gay teachers? I don't care about gay teachers. I don't ask a teacher if they're gay or straight. I want to know if they're good teachers," said the former American radio host and Republican strategist. "I don't think we should be, in fact, teaching about marriage in the school room where our kids can't read, can't write, and sure as heck can't add."
Also as part of "Piers Morgan Live" Wednesday, the host invited Elise Jordan and Marjorie Clifton to debate the significance of Barack Obama's self-imposed five percent pay-cut.
"I think that there's a lot of criticism of 'are you taking accountability? Are you still taking vacations?'" noted Clifton, the founder of "Spike the Watercooler." "It gets pointed at the president. And so I think, you know, a lot of these types of decisions are basically trying to get people invested in the idea of 'we are actively doing things.'"
Jordan, meanwhile, found the cut to be rather insignificant:
"It's such a superficial move. I think that it accounts to about 17 hundred a month for him? That's nothing! He lives in one of the most posh places in the world with his every need taken care," said the former Director of Communications at the National Security Council. "I just don't see why he thinks that this one meaningless gesture is really going to resonate with the American public."
