Another One Bites The Dust!! Piers Morgan Booted Off His CNN Show
SO that whole, “bring it on Megyn Kelly” thing didn’t really work out for ya, did it Piers?
Our long national nightmare is coming to an end – the Piers Morgan show is over after years of low ratings and alienating Americans with his gun-grabbing, sneering condescension. How did he last so long?
CNN’s president, Jeffrey Zucker, has other problems, but none bigger than Mr. Morgan and his plum 9 p.m. time slot. Mr. Morgan said last week that he and Mr. Zucker had been talking about the show’s failure to connect and had decided to pull the plug, probably in March.
While offering in the nicest terms why Piers didn’t too well at CNN, the New York Times’ David Carr didn’t gloss over his vehement insistence on more gun control, that hinged on fanatical religious zealotry:
Mr. Morgan’s approach to gun regulation was more akin to King George III, peering down his nose at the unruly colonies and wondering how to bring the savages to heel. He might have wanted to recall that part of the reason the right to bear arms is codified in the Constitution is that Britain was trying to disarm the citizenry at the time.
He regrets none of it, but clearly understands his scolding of “stupid” opponents of gun laws was not everyone’s cup of tea.
“I’m in danger of being the guy down at the end of the bar who is always going on about the same thing,” he said. He added that he was sure there were plenty of people in the heartland angry “about this British guy telling them how to lead their lives and what they should do with their guns.”
So, basically, Megyn Kelly destroyed Piers Morgan in the ratings, and Nancy Grace finished him off!
