Max Keiser: Tina Weaver “Fingered Piers Morgan”

Piers Trounced By the Amish

At last some good news for Piers Morgan: six times as many Americans watch his show as signed the petition to have him deported. But the cheers for Piers end there. The latest cable news race figures for Wednesday have the CNN host at the bottom of pecking order, with less than a fifth as many viewers tuning in to his show compared to Fox’s Bill O’Reilly. The humiliation was completed by 3.2 million Americans watching Amish Mafia, Pennsylvania’s answer to Made in Chelsea, compared to just 600,000 viewing Piers Morgan Tonight. At least Obama’s a fan

Petition the Whitehouse to Keep Piers in America

It was inevitable that sooner or later Americans would grow weary of Piers Morgan. It wasn’t so predictable that some 70,000 would actually go to the trouble of petitioning President Obama to have him deported.

On balance the only way Guido wants to see him back in Britain is to face charges, so he commends to you the counter Whitehouse petition, to keep Piers across the pond. He will of course be loving all the attention…

Merry Christmas Piers

Some might say Lord Sugar and his underlings have too much time on their hands, but to be fair they did manage a funny with the last of their alternative Christmas carols this afternoon:

Get into the Yuletide spirit by singing the full set around the fire…

Leveson Damning of Piers Morgan

Worth noting that Leveson refrained from naming too many names and is was clearly keen to avoid making direct accusations. One person he didn’t hold back on though was good old Piers Morgan. While discussing Pier’s evidence Brian claimed:

“This was not, in any sense at all, a convincing answer. Mr Morgan could not even resist a further side-swipe at the Guardian (he had earlier referred to that title as the self-appointed bishops of Fleet Street), perhaps in an attempt to draw attention away from the broader ramifications of the question. When linked with other evidence, his reference to ‘the rumour mill’ somewhat downplayed the quality of the evidence incriminating the industry as a whole. And Mr Morgan chose his words very carefully when asked to speak about the Daily Mirror. Overall, Mr Morgan’s attempt to push back from his own bullish statement to the Press Gazette was utterly unpersuasive.”

In other words…

Piers Morgan Discussing Phone Hacking With Charlotte Church

Transcript of the footage of Piers Morgan speaking to Charlotte Church:

PM: “There was a spate of stories that came out because of mobile phones. When they first came out mobile phones journalists found out that if the celebrity hadn’t changed their pin code, right…”

CC: “Yeah, you can access their voicemail.”

PM: “You can access, access their voicemail. Just by tapping in a number. Are you really telling me that journalists aren’t going to do that? If they know they can ring up Charlotte Church’s mobile phone, listen to all her messages…”

CC: “My God”

PM: “Right, now all you have to do and I know it’s hard because celebrities don’t like doing anything for themselves is actually change your security number.”

CC: “Yeah, I’ve changed my security number”.

PM: “And now you don’t have to worry”.

CC: “Exactly”.

Just in case you have forgotten, Piers claims:

“I do not believe that any story we published … was ever gained in an unlawful manner, nor have I ever seen anything to suggest that.”

He told Leveson:

“… I had no reason or knowledge to believe it was going on.”

Uh oh…

Morgan Hacking Hits States

CNN are said to be “twitchy” this morning following yesterday’s Piers Morgan hacking claims. There is a growing feeling both here and across the pond that it’s getting real for Piers, and judging by his out of character Twitter silence yesterday Sven’s nemesis is feeling the heat. Good to see Kier Simmons making waves stateside, as well…

Piers Morgan Laughed Off Savile’s Underage Sex Joke

The papers have finally caught up with what Guido said months ago, raising questions as to what the BBC knew about the Jimmy Savile child abuse allegations and why a Newsnight expose was spiked. It seems Savile was only too happy to openly make jokes about his reputation back in the early 1990s. Former Sun showbiz hack and Channel 5 TV presenter Matthew Wright has revealed:

“The first time I had to phone him up when I was at the Sun, which would be 1991, he had an assistant (I can’t remember her name now). She said ‘I’ll get Mr Savile for you’, put him on the phone, and the first thing he said before I’d even spoken to him was: ‘She told me she was over sixteen’. And that’s to a reporter. I’d like to think, and I did think at the time – and when I told Piers Morgan [then editor of the Sun's Bizarre column] about it he just said ‘oh its obviously a joke’. I’d like to think that perhaps that was the case but this ITV documetnary contains the testimony of seven women who claim to be victims…”

Knowing what we know now, it doesn’t seem so funny…

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
