CNN Put Piers on Probation

Piers Morgan is fighting for his job as CNN bosses look to revamp the beleaguered network’s prime time line up. June saw Piers drag the channel’s viewing figures to a 21-year low, while ratings plummeted again last month. Now, according to reports, CNN chiefs have put him on probation:

Anderson Cooper — CNN’s only claimant to real TV star power — appears to be the only one safe in the network’s primetime lineup, say those who have talked with programming officials there.”

 The pressure is on…

    Unless we can find another way of keeping him in America, he’ll end up on the BBC payroll. The pressure’s on us.

    To the “suits” at CNN: Somebody explain why the hiring of Piers Morgan “seemed like a good idea at the time.”
    If you’re not too embarrassed to do so.

    Dear CNN

    Piers Morgan is the best broadcaster in the world and deserves to be kept on at CNN in LA in a full time role ad infinitum.

    Thanks

    The wellspring of love for Piers is clearly in this blog. All others hate him.

    Sung to the Words ‘Ghost town’ By the Specials.

    ‘Do you remember the good old days before Piers come?
    Viewers danced and sung when the bombs rained down on a Iraq town’
    ….ah de da de de da de da etc

    Piers Morgan, is this is the guy who knowingly oversaw the fabrication of faked photographs claiming to show British Army personel , abusing and pissing on Iraqi civillians and who recently berated our athletes for not being patriotic enough , right ?

    ‘The Newsroom’, the new Aaron Sorkin series which has had a heavy kicking from the critics but which I think is rather good, is currently running a storyline in which the station has suffered a collapse in ratings. Part 2 is next week!

    So within the space of 15 minutes the BBC news had Rachel (I can’t speak properly) Reeves on spouting on about the economy and rail fares. Then we get one of the lesbian brothers wheeled out to spout exactly the same thing.

    Your BBC TV tax promoting Nu Labour.

    Perhaps after Piers is finally ejected by CNN he can move to Biased Broadcasting Company aka BBC & continue to put a few more nails in the coffin of this left wing dinosaur dictatorship…..

    Who’s time for extinction is NOW !!

    SNP ministers allowed Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi to be given abiraterone (prostate cancer drug) at the cost of the taxpayer whilst denying it to all Scottish citizens … until their eventual climbdown yesterday.

    Please will all you American cousins watch Piers so CNN and can keep him in his wonderful job position.

    Because we in England don’t want the fooking twat back here again.

    Red Ed says:

    I’ve asked Piers daily to interview me, he doesn’t realise how he can have a future career when I takeover and wrap up ITV and Sky into the grand people’s BBC and he can conduct friendly interviews about how I am always looking after the interests of the people.

    Peter says:

    I am really concerned about Piers Morgan’s failure in the USA.
    One awful consequence is that he might reappear more often on UK television.
    Gawd!

      Piers Who? says:

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. Perhaps we need to all write to CNN and ask them to keep him over there. Special relationship and all that. Perhaps we could threaten to send Gordon over.

    TV producer says:

    we’d like to make a programme about him in one of our “Where are they now?”

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
