Rupert Murdoch: 'Let's Have Petition To Keep Piers Morgan In U.S.'

CNN's Piers Morgan got support from a surprising source Saturday.

Commenting on Twitter, News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch said, "Let's have petition to keep Piers Morgan in U.S. We need him, as does CNN."

Murdoch of course was responding to a recent petition logged at the White House website calling for Morgan to be deported as a result of his views concerning gun control.

That said, Murdoch and Morgan are no strangers.

In 1994, at the ripe age of 28, Morgan was named editor of News Corp's News of the World.

As such, it's certain he's pleased to receive his older employer's support.
