You can tell he’s a Brit just by looking at him; you don’t even need to hear him speak to know that. Yes, he’s somewhat famous too, but not necessarily for the reasons you would think. He is a questionable personality at best when it comes to his ideas about America. To me, he is the most despicable person residing in America at this time. Being a foreigner, and considering his efforts to verbally subvert the Constitution on his program, puts him in league with other America haters.
Should we expect anything less from a British citizen, living in America, who is making big bucks talking our country down, and gets his paycheck from an American TV network that pays him with greenbacks?
His thoughts on firearms, Alex Jones, and the U.S. Constitution are way out of line compared to what mainstream America thinks and feels. By mainstream America, I don’t mean the liberal left; I refer to those true Americans, who are willing to defend the Constitution. I do NOT refer to the likes of those who would listen to the poison words of this man who suggests that the Constitution is outdated, and that ‘guns’ are the big problem in our country, and then they still go on thinking he’s a cool dude.
What Morgan and many on the left don’t understand is that any one of the framers of the Constitution had more mental prowess than Morgan does when it comes to the subjects mentioned here. He has had his up’s and down’s with regards to his ongoing effort to maintain his type of stardom.
Some things you might not know about Piers Morgan. (Thanks to ‘wikipedia)
- He was born in 1965 and was given the name of “Piers Stefan O’Meara.”
- He was renamed “Piers Stefan Pughe-Morgan” by his stepfather.
- Morgan has been married twice.
- On 19 December 2012, soon after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Morgan, when interviewing Larry Pratt on his gun control views, called him (Pratt) a “stupid man” and “a dangerous man espousing dangerous nonsense.”
- Morgan is alleged to have close ties with the Rupert Murdoch family and defended them in the media against suggestions that they were more involved in the News International phone hacking scandal than they claimed.
- In 2000, he was the subject of an investigation after Suzy Jagger wrote a story in The Daily Telegraph revealing that he had bought £20,000 worth of shares in the computer company Viglen soon before the Mirror ‘s ‘City Slickers’ column tipped Viglen as a good buy. He was found to have breached the journalistic code of conduct but kept his job.
- Morgan was fired as Editor of the Daily Mirror on 14 May 2004 after authorizing the newspaper’s publication of photographs allegedly showing Iraqi prisoners being abused by British Army soldiers from the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment. Within days the photographs were shown to be crude fakes. Under the headline “SORRY.. WE WERE HOAXED”, the Mirror responded that it had fallen victim to a “calculated and malicious hoax” and apologized for the publication of the photographs.
- In 2007, Morgan was filmed falling off a Segway, breaking three ribs. Simon Cowell and others made much of Morgan’s previous comment in 2003, in the Daily Mail, after former U.S. President George W. Bush fell off a Segway, that “You’d have to be an idiot to fall off, wouldn’t you, Mr. President?”
- He’s been in several feuds because of his in your face attitude over the years.
- Ian Hislop: Morgan appeared as a guest on the satirical news quiz Have I Got News for You in an episode transmitted on 24 May 1996. In it, show regular Ian Hislop accused Morgan of having him followed and having his house watched.
- In October 2003, journalist and television personality Jeremy Clarkson reportedly emptied a glass of water over Morgan during the last flight of Concorde. In March 2004, at the British Press Awards, Clarkson punched Morgan three times in a clash over The Mirror’s coverage of his private life, and accusations that Clarkson did not write for his column in The Sun himself. Morgan reported on a rapprochement with Clarkson in the epilogue of his book, Don’t You Know Who I Am?.
- In December 2010 Morgan had an ongoing Twitter argument with Alan Sugar, which resulted in a competition to see who could attract more followers by Christmas Day. Their arguments on Twitter continued for more than eighteen months
So, he is not the urbane guy he would like you to think he is. He’s had his share of problems and missteps. Yes, he’s well groomed and well spoken, but has other problems with personalities like Alex Jones and his feuds mentioned above. While being fair, one must understand that anyone who is in Morgan’s position in the press opens himself up to the kind of problems and controversies that he has dealt with in the past and now finds himself once again dealing with new ones.
America can go it alone, without Piers Morgan.
