What happened after the Christine O'Donnell walk off? A first person account

Minutes after Christine O'Donnell walked off her interview with Piers Morgan, I walked into her green room to escort her and her team out of the building. It's standard procedure for a member of our team to walk each and every guest out after the show. Sometimes that means you get lucky and ride in an elevator with Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Other times, that means you're the first person Christine O'Donnell meets after she storms off the set, upset with questions regarding her stance on gay marriage. FULL POST

Piers Morgan takes CNN viewers behind-the-scenes at "America's Got Talent": "It's a snapshot of American culture"

Piers Morgan is a busy guy – besides hosting his nightly show on CNN, he also remains a judge on the hottest show of the summer, "America's Got Talent." Last week he took us behind-the-scenes at a live taping – discussing how he balances both shows, what "America's Got Talent" says about America and his ongoing feud with fellow judge Howie Mandel.

"It's a snapshot of American culture, and that's why I like it so much," says Piers. "Ordinary people who do extraordinary things." As for those who say a "serious newsman" shouldn't be a talent show judge? FULL POST
