Kick rocks you low life. I wish you a future of further failure.

CNN to end 'Piers Morgan Live'
CNN to end 'Piers Morgan Live' - Sun Sentinel

CNN has decided to end the marquee prime-time talk show hosted by veteran British journalist Piers Morgan, the cable news network said on Sunday.

A date for the final broadcast of Piers Morgan Live on CNN had not been determined and a spokeswoman did not immediately say if Morgan would remain at the network in any other role.

A source at CNN said network president Jeffrey Zucker had made the decision to cancel the show following a series of discussions with Morgan about its future.

Morgan, 48, could not immediately be reached for comment but acknowledged in a New York Times interview published on Sunday that as a Brit he did not always connect with American audiences, a problem that showed itself in the program's ratings.

"It's been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings," Morgan, a former editor of the Daily Mirror tabloid in Britain, told the Times.

The talk-show host had infuriated conservatives during his three-year run on CNN with frequent discourses on gun control.

He was the subject of a petition drive by Americans seeking to have him deported for on-air comments he made following a December 2012 shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

"Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it," Morgan told the Times.

"That's run its course and Jeff and I have been talking for some time about different ways of using me," he said.

Morgan, a former judge on the "America's Got Talent" show who replaced Larry King on CNN in 2011, said earlier this month that he had been questioned by London police in connection with accusations of phone-hacking at the Daily Mirror.

The veteran journalist, who has always denied any involvement in phone hacking, said he was interviewed by police after voluntarily going to a London police station in December.

Britain's newspaper industry was rocked in 2011 by the closure of Rupert Murdoch's best-selling Sunday tabloid News of the World after revelations some staff had regularly hacked into phones to generate front page scoops.

Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson, two former News of the World editors who are both close associates of Prime Minister David Cameron, are on trial in London accused of conspiracy to hack phones between 2000 and 2006.

Oh please. All he did was interrupt, cut off, and speak over every guest that disagreed with his views. He was never interested in debate or discourse, he was only interested in the sound of his own perseverating voice.

I don't use the word hate too often, but I will say I hate Piers. Good riddance. I'm amazed at how he tried to rewrite the Second Amendment.

WHAT???

Have you seen the Alex Jones interview?

That interview is exactly the opposite of what you are describing. And Alex was shouting at him half the time.

That's an isolated example. Piers just made the mistake once of inviting someone who is even more nuts, obnoxious, and shouty than he is. Balanced against, oh, *every* other instance ...

You mean like this?... To quote Pierce AFTER he asks Gottlieb a direct question
Piers asked Gottleib a direct question 3 different times. Then after Gottleib kept dancing around the answer and tried to change the subject Piers cut him off. I would have told Gottleib to STFU as well. Kinda hard to have a debate with someone who won't answer the very first question that you ask. Gottleib was a complete waste of time.

I've seen many other hosts cut off guess when they become a pain in the ass. Have you ever seen Bill O'Reilly go off on guests that he doesn't agree with? Most people who don't like Pierce feel that way simply because he's been an advocate for gun control.

Well you first have to accept that the question "why does anyone NEED an AR 15" is a legitimate question that deserves an answer, which it doesn't. Why does anyone NEED a motorcycle that goes 180 mph, a 10,000 Sq foot home with 3 pools and bowling alley, etc etc etc? Of course if we start asking the general question about what or why anyone NEEDS anything outside of food and shelter, then I guess you see where that conversation is headed.

Despite the ridiculous and irrelevant question, Gottlieb humored him and actually gave him a legitimate example. The troll Pierce didn't like the answer/example so he just kept repeating his ridiculous question.

His show was cancelled after 3 yrs. Apparently I'm not the only one that thinks he's a complete loser.

Of course it is. Because if Gottleib is claiming that the business owners didn't get robbed simply because they had assault weapons, then it's not to far of a stretch to say that every small business owner NEEDS assault weapons to protect their property. Then if business owners NEED assault weapons to protect their property, well I guess every property owner NEEDS assault weapons to protect their property. Where does it all end???

I've never understood how those of us that don't protect our property with assault weapons are that much more vulnerable than those who do. And what about all those people who have no gun to protect their property at all? Why do they all NEED assault weapons?

Alex Jones is a beast. He knew before he went on there that Piers was gonna interrupt and cut him off like he always does so he decided to make it entertaining and not give him that opportunity. He still stated facts and made his points. Only derelict boxcar children can't get past the animated delivery to hear what he was saying.

Who are you or Penis Morgan to tell me, Gottlieb, or anyone else what we NEED or don't NEED? And who says that IF it is not a NEED, that we still don't have the right to own it?

You don't NEED a sportbike. It's obvious that sportbikers are nothing more than reckless thugs that cause mayhem on the streets and put innocent lives at risk. I've seen the videos all over youtube so please save your breath trying to convince me otherwise. So please tell me why anyone NEEDS a sport bike.

I don't think I have ever seen such world-wide hate towards one person as Piers Morgan has.

You missed the point again.

a) Very few people "need" an assault rifle. But it isn't the "Bill of Needs", it's the Bill of Rights. Among the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is the right to own stuff you don't need, if it makes you happy and you acquire it honestly.

b) Very few people actually *have* an assault rifle; they've been extremely restricted since the 1930's. Hint: the AR-15 is not an assault rifle; the M-16 is. What they are trying ban now are regular semi-automatic rifles that *look* like assault rifles.

c) If the Second Amendment ever gets used for what it exists for and was written for -- the defense of the people against an out-of-control government -- we will ALL damn well need assault rifles, REAL ones, and right away.

I rode a Busa for 10 years and have never once argued that myself, or anyone else NEEDS a sportbike. So why was it so hard for Gottleib to answer the simple question???Because he knew if he answered the question honestly that he would be backing himself into a corner.
