With a new book about Fox News CEO Roger Ailes on the way, Wednesday evening saw "Piers Morgan Live" solicit reaction and insight from Brian Stelter.
The host of CNN's Reliable Sources, Stelter told Piers Morgan that the forthcoming publication will do little to alter the already existing opinions of those that consume cable news:
"I think people who are skeptical of FOX News are going to read this book and they're going to be sure once and for all that FOX News is an arm of the Republican party. Now of course, FOX News says it's not. Roger Ailes denies a lot of the allegations in the book. But there are stories after stories after stories in this book about how Roger Ailes is interested in influencing Republican politics. And frankly in beating Barack Obama," Stelter said of the work written by Gabriel Sherman. "And of course, if you're a FOX fan, if you're a fan of Roger Ailes, you're not going to believe a word of it anyway."
The book, entitled "The Loudest Voice in the Room: How the Brilliant, Bombastic Roger Ailes Built Fox News–and Divided a Country," will be released later this month.
With the infamous "Miracle on the Hudson" set to reach its remarkable fifth anniversary next week, on Wednesday evening Piers Morgan welcomed the hero of that river landing, Capt. Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger, for a live interview.
With JetBlue having recently suspended a series of flights for reasons described as being related to recently instituted rest requirements for pilots, the "Piers Morgan Live" host asked his guest for some perspective:
"You have to realize that the new federal rest rules were implemented in - were announced in December 2011. So the airlines have had over two years to plan, to prepare, to fully staff, to train and to provide all the resources to implement this rule," said the man with more than three decades of experience in the air, before offering for support of any rule that prioritizes the well-being of crew and paseengers alike. "The purpose of this rule is to prevent fatigue related accidents and to save lives. The inconveniences that occur, if they are attributed some of them to this rule, it's in the interest of safety."
