The media’s attacks on Donald Trump have been so out of control that even former CNN host and Piers Morgan is calling them out on it. On Wednesday’s edition of FNC’s Hannity the current U.S. editor of The Daily Mail eviscerated the American press’s attempt to “attempt to delegitimize, sabotage and destroy the Trump presidency before it’s even
On Friday's Real Time on HBO, host Bill Maher made crude incest jokes about President Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka, and, a bit later, got into a heated debate with former liberal CNN host Piers Morgan about whether there has been a substantial increase in violent crime over the past couple of years as the liberal comedian cited a chart that only included crime through 2015 and omitted the most recent figures. Maher further demonstrated his show's difficulty in providing accurate information to viewers as Morgan also called him out for criticizing the recent attack on a terrorist target in Yemen as a failure when, in fact, 12 al-Qaeda operatives were killed.
During an appearance on Fox News Monday night, former CNN host Piers Morgan offered a stunning rebuke to the media, calling out them out for being “in the tank of Hillary Clinton” during the 2016 campaign and openly hostile to President Trump after “their candidate didn’t win.” He then demanded that press show the commander-in-chief “more respect.”
Over the next two weeks, NewsBusters will be documenting the media’s role in fueling Hillary Clinton’s political career by showering her with adoring press coverage while smearing her critics as sinister and sexist. Today, examples of reporters cheerfully echoing Hillary’s attempt to blame all of her and her husband’s scandals on a “vast right-wing conspiracy,” as opposed to the Clintons’ own impoverished ethics.
After having repeatedly opined about this on Twitter, liberal British journalist and reality TV star Piers Morgan took to the airwaves of FNC’s On the Record Tuesday night to continue his verbal assault against Michelle Fields and Florida police for pressing charges against Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in a scrum which Piers dubbed “pathetic” and “utterly pointless.”
As only Piers Morgan could, the liberal former CNN host went on a Twitter rant Tuesday evening complaining that teams not from the United States are unable to compete in the World Series (plus the Toronto Blue Jays, but who’s counting). In a series of tweets starting just after 8:30 p.m. Eastern, Morgan whined that only Major League Baseball (MLB) teams can compete for the title in the Fall Classic before dismissing the sport by touting cricket as “[b]aseball for brainy people anyway.”
Piers Morgan, a British journalist who has excoriated the “appalling gun culture that now pervades every aspect of American life,” wouldn’t mind owning a bow and arrow … so he can start “Big Human Hunting.”
In a July 28 piece for the Daily Mail, Morgan attacked dentist and hunter Dr. Walter Palmer for killing Cecil, a renowned Zimbabwean lion being tracked for an Oxford study.
This week, after a federal judge delays implementation of President Obama's executive amnesty, the networks frame it as “a historic day... on hold,” and a ruling that “dashes American dreams for millions of families.” Also, a rogues’ gallery of journalists led by Dan Rather leap to the defense of suspended NBC News anchor Brian Williams, while others in the media wish we'd stop talking about ISIS terrorists in favor of something more important: global warming.
Ex-CNN host Piers Morgan is the latest journalist with a history of black marks (Dan Rather, Geraldo Rivera) to come to the defense of Brian Williams. In Monday’s online edition of the Daily Mail, the fired host of Piers Morgan Live sarcastically wrote Williams’ critics wouldn’t be satisfied until he was: “feathered, tarred, dragged through the streets of New York to Times Square, and stoned to death.” Morgan also wondered how former CBS newsman Walter Cronkite would “have fared under the intense scrutiny of today?”
Former CNN host Piers Morgan sat down with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Monday night's The Kelly File to discuss him lobbying Time magazine to name the Ferguson protestors to be their “Person of the Year” for 2014. The interview began with the two jokingly burrying the hatchet regarding their former ratings battle during the 9:00 p.m. timeslot. Speaking to Kelly, Morgan joked that in 2013 “I tweeted you saying, ‘Bring it, Megyn Kelly’...And the mere fact I’m now a guest on the show indicates that you brought it. So congratulations.” The Fox News host said of Morgan’s failed run at CNN :"Thank you very much for being such a gracious loser. We appreciate it."
Appearing on Monday's NBC Today, ex-CNN host Piers Morgan called on Time magazine to name the Ferguson protesters as the publication's "Person of the Year" for 2014: "If you ask me what has been the single biggest issue facing Americans right now in this country, it is the whole issue surrounding what happened there....Everyone's got to come together and say we are simply better than this."
Piers Morgan's former employers at CNN finally responded on Thursday to the former host's recent targeting of Anderson Cooper. Politico's Dylan Byers reported that in an e-mail, network publicist Megan Rivers "accused Morgan of making unjustified attacks on his former colleague [Cooper] in order to find a new job." The former CNN host is now editor-at-large at the Daily Mail.
