No more Piers Morgan Live: please excuse me while I dry my eyes

You may have already heard that CNN is canceling Piers Morgan Live. Most Americans leapt for joy when they heard the news. The cancellation could take effect as early as next month.

Piers said to the New York Times:

“Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there’s no doubt there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it,”

If you’ve read some of my earlier articles, you probably know that I’m fond of the Second Amendment and enjoy freedom. I grew up around guns, started hunting with my father at a relatively young age, and have always loved America’s hunting culture.

I don’t dislike Piers because of his political views. Assuming you’ve watched Piers’ show, you know how incredible unprofessional and rude he is. When Morgan has a guest on that agrees with him, he’s polite. Piers is the complete opposite when he has a guest on his show with different views than him.

During an interview with Larry Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America Piers Morgan said “You are an incredibly stupid man, aren’t you?” to Pratt. During the same interview, Piers also said “…It’s due to idiots like you.” There are many more moments in Piers’ show where he insults his guests.

Of course Piers Morgan isn’t alone in this style of journalism. Others like Bill O’Reilly have acted in similar ways. What annoys a lot of people about Piers Morgan Live is the fact that Morgan is a British man trying to tell Americans what to do.

In virtually every gun debate video Piers has, he refers to U.K. statistics. He tells his guest how great the U.K. is and how low the murder rate is. Well Piers, if it’s so great, why not go back?
