Don’t go away mad, Piers, just go away

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.

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:
