We don't need a pompous Brit lecturing us on American issues.
I seldom got to see his programme except on the net, but he seemed to have a
knack to point out realistic and obvious things from a bit of an external
viewpoint. That ability really set some of the hard core gun people off on a
Should have been two years ago! Or better yet.... never was there. He was a
bad move by CNN.
Isn't CNN the lowest rated "news" show on TV?Touche.
It's not hard to beleive a Brit doing an American cable show on a channel
few watch couldn't succeed.
I respected Piers Morgan even though I often sharply disagreed with him. It took
integrity to say what he thought when he knew it could be unpopular. Now that
he’s out, CNN will most likely offer more panel discussions. That’s
low risk and it doesn’t require much imagination.
@ 2 bits"We don't need a pompous Brit lecturing us on American
issues."Does this count for Stuart Varney too? Will you demand
that fox fire him? After all, we don't need a Brit lecturing us on American
I would be interesting to see what would happen to the ratings if they put a
conservative host in there.
@The Real MaverickStuart Varney has lived in the united states for
40 years and does not lecture other the US on political views.
Put some Rush reruns on, they will outdraw what Morgan was getting.
Piers Morgan fell out of favor with the American viewer when he vehemently
persisted against our Constitution's 2nd Amendment... which says "the
right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
Bad news, this might mean he might come back to the UK. Please keep him over
"Stuart Varney has lived in the united states for 40 years and does not
lecture other the US on political views."I don't understand
the second part of your answer so let's focus on the first part. 40 years
huh? So how long does one have to be here in the United States before they can
comment on American affairs? 10 years? 20? What's the requirement? And what happens when we have Americans like Sarah Palin who have lived
here all their lives yet know absolutely nothing about this country? Do we stop
them from speaking too?@ DavidIt would depend on how
outrageous or good looking that conservative commentator would be. Fox has got
yellow journalism and good looking commentators formula nailed down. If CNN
brought on someone outrageous who said racist or offensive things? Or who was a
former swimsuit model? Their ratings would soar.

express opinions about what's wrong with other countries.
I applaud CNN for this decision. I can't say much about him that
hasn't already come up; it sufficeth to say, an agenda of baiting and
anti-religious charicature is all the worse when you're not even a critic
from within, but from abroad. He's why I can't take knocks against
Rush Limbaugh seriously.
Good riddance! I agree with the article's reasons why Morgan is
unpopular.I would also oppose a pompous American lecturing the
British about their issues.
That Redcoat was talking about " common sense" gun laws which really
hurt his ratings.
