Piers actually was fired or had to resign his last newspaper editorship because he faked up a bunch of Abu Grahib photos. He didn't think the photos that were coming out were scandalous enough, so he altered them to make them look worse. Then he printed them. Look it up. And of course that joke of an entertainment station cnn hired him%0D
What he and that idiot woman vicky ward said was complete and utter bullshit. notw and ni (murdochs companies) were spending millions a year paying off/bribing police for info on people (such as their cell phone numbers) which they (murdoch's reporters) then passed on to a private investigator they kept on the payroll who would then hack into these people's cell phones. %0D
The reporters didn't do this with their own personal money. They did it with murdoch money. That was money that they actually wrote off as business expenses. They've spent almost 3/4 of a billion dollars over the past 10 yrs trying to head off any lawsuits of the hacking. No business owner doesn't notice that much money missing. They knew what was going on. %0D
And hacking (of all types) is standard operating procedure for murdoch's companies. Their Direct TV branch is being sued for hacking into an Israeli competitors accounts. They were also sued, but settled out of court for hacking into FloorGraphics computers.
this Piers?? Who''s he protecting besides his own sorry ass??
Morning Joe was talking about Piers Morgan today and how he brags in his autobio about hacking people while he was editor of News of the World in the mid 90''s. Why isn''t this more of a scandal?
R3, someone said they had a long affair (IIRC ,3 years)
Piers should really lay low these days, maybe take a long vacation. But he''s a loud, arrogant asshole so he''ll just spew loud lies into any microphone he can find. Kind of like his "mentor" Donald Trump.%0D\
I would love to read Brooks'' autobiography. Whatever we all think of her, no one can deny she has led a very interesting life.
So FOX News can''t say shit about this scandal because it''s their boss, and CNN won''t touch this because one of their employees = News of the World. LMAO. Lovely.
CNN is hoping Pier''s involvement gains momentum so they can fire his ass.
Madonna, Queen of Pop
If they are smart, they are, R11. He is actually embarrassing to watch.
I watched him last night. He backed ol Rupert totally. Disgusting. Also, I didn''t realize his entire background comes out of the British tabloid press. %0D\
It''s disgusting that CNN hired him in the first place. They have to be really embarrased. Especially with the crap that is now coming out of his arrogant mouth.
I''ll recap for you lots of playing dumb and denials.
Not that I expect anyone would, but given that America''s Got Talent is live, it would be great if someone made reference to Piers, Murdoch and the hacking scandal.
Piers'' bragging was just brought up by MP Louise Mensche.\
Bump because this thread should supercede the "Piers Morgan will be fired" thread.
Is his name still being dragged through Parliament?
Piers is a fame-hungry cocksucker.
Piers is a twatty douchebag cockgobbler
He actually came out in favour of gay marriage yesterday in his weekly column in "The Mail on Sunday" magazine here in England -but then he is probably going with the current liberal attitude - a few years ago when we was an editor (before he printed those rigged photos) he would probably have been fulminating against the very idea of gays having rights ....
He's been pro-gay on his show for months.
The business media should mock Murdoch for 'not knowing' what the expense account money was used for and declare him an unfit and demented businessman who doesn't know what's going on in his companies. Maybe then Murdoch would sing a different tune.
Uncovering his schemes isn't enough, he should be nailed down and charged for them. Otherwise they just turn into some misdemeanor in the public's eye (what can we do when everybody's doing it? We just have to accept it).
Yes, he wouldn't have been editor of the 'News of the World' - let alone lasted two minutes - had he breathed a hint of support for gay rights. Murdoch's yellow-toothed attack-rag was homophobic to its core.
Piers, 28 uneducated and ambitious, would have been the perfect secretary for His Master's Voice. Maybe he's now minimally more enlightened.
Piers Morgan is an undesirable alien. Send him home.
He actually makes Larry King look good.
Larry King WAS good. That's why he had such a popular show for 25 years.
I'm no Vadge fan by any means, but this guy seems to be fucking delusional when it comes to Madonna. He keeps saying she isn't allowed to ever come on her show and that she would have to get on her knees and beg him if she wanted to, as if she gives a flying fuck about this prick.
God, I wish all these British pricks (Piers Morgan, Simon Cowell, the Osbournes, etc) would all go back to merry ole England.
Piers Morgan sucks at interviews. He sucks up to George Clooney and all those fake ass Hollywood manwhore actors. It's pathetic! The only show that was worth anything was the first show when Howard STern appeared and Howard took control of the interview. It was hilarious. I can't wait til he's cancelled.
