As it turns out, you can’t wrongly infer that every gun owner in America is complicit in murder every time some monster shoots up a school or shopping mall and maintain any kind of ratings:

Piers Morgan’s prime-time talk show has been cancelled with the journalist admitting the audience in the United States is getting ”tired” of him.

The former newspaper editor joined US channel CNN in a blaze of publicity three years ago to take over from veteran Larry King, but his show has struggled in the ratings with initial audiences of two million falling to around 270,000.

The 48-year-old told The New York Times that he and CNN president Jeff Zucker were discussing a new role for him at the channel, where his contract ends in September, but admitted his brash British approach had alienated viewers.

Morgan’s campaigning stance in favour of gun control has led to some high-profile clashes with opponents and hundreds of thousands people signed a petition calling for him to be deported.

Also yesterday, Alec Baldwin said he was going away. All in all it was a pretty good day. Although I don’t believe Baldwin for a second. He said he’s tired of tabloid photographers, so he’s leaving New York City. Where’s he going? Los Angeles. Yeah, no celeb photographers there.

Back to Morgan — I do appreciate Piers for one thing: He contributed to one of the funniest Twitter exchanges ever in this mini-debate with Carol Roth:

ZINNGGGGGG!

    Love that mini debate. Makes you wonder just how quickly he will end up with a job in Dear Leaders admin.

    It Piers like he lost the debate.

    Both Piers and Alec are going away. All we need is Barack, Joe and Nancy to follow suit.

    Sigh, you almost have to feel sorry for people like Piers, they are so stupid, if it were not for modern society, they would have died off before the age of 12.

    What the hell is Barack Obama’s presidency for?

    "with initial audiences of two million falling to around 270,000."

    Right, b/c *initially* those 2 million viewers were on-loan from the audience Larry KING built up over the years..! Of the 270k that remained, they're like the stoners at a rock concert too out of it to realize there won't be a [3rd] encore? There mostly b/c they don't have anywhere else to be!

    In three years he managed to utterly decimate what it took LK 2 1/2 decades to build. Another job well done by the progressive media. The problem for them is, unlike touring musical acts where they put [2] big names on the bill when times are tough, what are they going to do for the progressive Left?

    Put Olbie, Garafalo and Piers on the same SHOW? Yeah.., that'll work…

    "It was an odd strategy considering few in the tea party care for Cantor."

    True that. Personally I don't know anyone that endorses Can'torWon't? Good for Nick as well. I'll have to start following him on Twitter. Thanks for bringing that to attention.

    Great parallels on reds thinking 100 years ago was an opportune window to make Americans, well, anything BUT Americans? It's a shame it took so many to awaken to it [1] agenda point at a TIME?

    This year we need to be asking that 71% now regretting VOTING for this twit, what was the final straw for you..? Outlawing incandescent bulbs? Rotten to the Core..? NSA snooping? Lots to choose from but what did it for you? Kind of like asking musicians who their influences were, only not nearly as enlightening.

    A mind like yours my friend, is a national treasure…

    The unfortunate thing is many of those 71% will vote for Hillary this time, "because she is a woman and it will be different I swear".

    The 3 stupids?

    O/T..Defense budget calls for reducing housing allowance, raising prices at the commissary, raising co-pay and deductibles on healthcare. Meanwhile Dear Leader wants to spend more on food stamps and welfare.

    Gee could it have anything to do with whom his constituency is.

  12. backwoodsconservative on February 25th, 2014 1:05 pm

    In a sane world he wouldn't have a constituency.

    And now Holder is urging State AG's to be like Dear Leader:

    The administration is now encouraging its unilateral governing approach at the state level. In an interview with The New York Times Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged that any state attorneys general who deem their states’ same-sex marriage bans as discriminatory and unconstitutional to simply refuse to defend state law.

    It wasn't his "brash British approach"…I'm pretty sure it was the large empty cavity between his ears…
