Peter Hitchens, the brother of the late Christopher Hitchens, is an author and public figure in the UK, although he is less well known here in the US. In 2008 he published a book, The Abolition of Britain, that has been a bestseller for years. The other day he appeared on Britain’s talk show Good Morning Britain […]

I’ve Discovered a Liking for Piers Morgan, Now That He’s in the UK

 

Some years ago, I knew Piers Morgan as an obnoxious British journalist on American television. I rarely watch TV, so I mostly was aware of him when he outraged conservatives by his theatrical posturing over one issue or another, such as Newtown.

However, as a faithful reader of the Daily Mail, I’ve enjoyed a number of his columns since he returned to the UK, defending his old friend President Donald Trump, such as this one. The president gave Mr. Morgan an interview on Air Force One before departing the UK for Germany yesterday that many of you will find interesting. Here’s the interview, and I’ve also included a video from morning talk in the UK arguing over the president’s visit, in which Mr. Morgan argues that the protests against the American president should not be so puerile and outraged, when visitors like Erdogan of Turkey or the crown prince of Saudi Arabia receive little to none.

I Owe My Life to Piers Morgan

 

No, really! I mean, I was tempted, really tempted, to attempt to read through Hillary’s You-a Culpa, and then post a review and takedown of it here. I was willing to waste all of that time for you, I was willing to risk aneurysm, liver cancer, and chewing off my own fingernails in anger, dear readers, while I waded through the dark morass of Hillary’s Id, but Piers Morgan has saved me from that lonely fate. You see, he read it, and what’s more, he posted his own review of it. Normally Piers and I do not see eye to eye on much, but here he put his acid pen to formidable use in a vituperative and blistering evisceration of the Pant-Suited Horror with such brilliance that any review I might venture would be a mere shadow of his anger. And so I doff my cap in thanks and here turn the floor over to Piers: (emphasis my own)

‘What happened’ is the title of Hillary Clinton‘s new 464-page book.

For quite some time, the liberal-leaning Piers Morgan has been excellent on this issue. He simply asks Mayor of London Sadiq Khan the question most sane people are wondering: Where are the 400 Jihadists who’ve returned to England from Syrian battlefields? “Where are they?” The Mayor responds with some pablum about financial priorities. Financial. Priorities. […]

If Piers Morgan Can’t Do It …

 

Somewhat overshadowed by the news that Stephen Colbert will be replacing David Letterman next year, CNN President Jeff Zucker announced today that his network is giving up on the primetime talk show format (this is how completely snakebit Zucker is — he even gets outprogrammed when announcing business decisions).

The time slot formerly occupied by Larry King and then Piers Morgan will now belong to unscripted series helmed by the likes of Mike Rowe and John Walsh.
