Piers Morgan abruptly terminated an interview live on Good Morning Britain after a journalist branded him a “narcissist”.
The controversial presenter, who is also editor-at-large of the US Mail Online, came under heavy criticism for interviewing a so-called “gay cure therapist” on the show on Tuesday.
He has the kind of face you would want to punch, personally, I'd be quite happy just barbecuing his nuts and feeding them to my scum neighbour's dog.
Piers Morgan is now the person who has saved ITV's breakfast programme with his robust interviewing style, some would say just plain rude. But it could have been very different.
In 2012, he was in hot water over allegations over phone hacking. He was the editor of the Daily Mirror for nine years at the time it was alleged that phone hacking took place at that paper.
Lord Leveson, as this article says, was not convinced by Morgan's ignorance of the subject of phone hacking. Morgan was called into Leveson's phone hacking inquiry and gave evidence to him that he knew nothing about phone hacking, let alone ordered it. In Leveson's report after the inquiry, he called Morgan's evidence at the inquiry as being "utterly unpersuasive," but Morgan was never charged with any offence related to phone hacking.
Back to today and ITV's ratings for GMB are souring and his Saturday evening interview show is very popular.
Should someone like Morgan be on our screens everyday? Like his friend Trump, it shows that a certain kind of behaviour rather than being bad for one's career, in fact can be the opposite. I happen to actually like Morgan's interview programme and the rare times I've seen breakfast TV, he does make compulsive viewing, if only for the fact that you want to throw your breakfast bowl at the tv when he's on it.
Do you love him, or loathe him?
