READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Tonight at 9, Piers Morgan will be “Breaking the News” with lawyer and former co-host of "The View,” Star Jones.
With her years of journalistic experience, critical perspective on current issues, and candid commentary, Jones has become a beloved regular on “Piers Morgan Live.” In advance of her upcoming Tuesday evening appearance, we've compiled a collection of some of the lessons learned during Jones’ previous visits:
1. Star Jones believes that a campaign ad can’t reverse your reputation as a pervert – especially if you give yourself a pseudonym like Carlos Danger. In his most recent video release, New York City Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner claimed to be just like New Yorkers who never quit. But Jones took offense to that claim, which suggested that Weiner could be categorized with the great police officers, teachers, and first responders of NYC. She instead referred to the alleged sexter as “one tick away from being just a complete perv.”
2. Star Jones thinks that even though the charges of racial discrimination brought against Paula Dean didn’t end up carrying legal standing, this doesn’t mean that the "Queen of Southern Cooking" isn't a delusional racist who fantasizes about the confederate era.
3. Star Jones believes that skin color plays a large role in dictating the national coverage. In June, she demanded media attention and support for stories like that of her friend, a young black mother named Rosaline “Rhonda” Ransom Lee, who went missing while running an errand one evening. No reports were made prior to her body being found near a lake in Pontiac, Michigan.
4. Star Jones thinks everyone has the right to due process, even disgraced New York Yankees slugger and accused PED user Alex Rodriguez. “Fans have every right to boo at him,” she told Piers Morgan earlier this month. But until the MLB presents evidence in court, “he has every right to play, and the Yankees got to write a check.”
5. Star Jones feels that culture played a signifiant role in the Trayvon Martin case, regardless of whether or not the public wants to accept that. According to Jones, this lesson is most palpable in the context of the flagrant criticism aimed at star-witness Rachel Jeantel, whose testimony was consistent with her traditional Caribbean upbringing.
