    Report: CNN Dumping Anti-Gun Fanatic Piers Morgan

    Found on BFA:

    http://weaselzippers.us/2013/10/01/r...-piers-morgan/

    Sources tell FTVLive that CNN Boss Jeff Zucker is “actively looking for a replacement for Piers Morgan.”

    Morgan signed a one year extension to his contract and as time winds down, Zucker is looking for someone to takeover his time slot.

    Word is that Zucker really wants Katie Couric in that slot. Couric should be available soon as many expect this is the last year her talk show “Katie” will be on the air.

    That is great!

    I hope they don't end up putting someone just as rabid in that time slot.

    So, they are hiring a flop to replace a flop?

    Take a chance morons, and hire someone who will advocate for Liberty and tiny government. Watch your ratings grow.

    They couldn't handle that much truth.

    Remember, these are the people who "reported" that the NYSE was under 3 feet of water during Sandy, just because someone tweeted it.

    As irritating as Piers is, he does cause people to think - many listeners (most?) end up with a better understanding of the fallacy of the anti gun rhetoric as a result of sitting through his torturous show.

    Maybe CNN figured out that he was doing our side a favor every time he opened his mouth.

    I was actually going to say something similar. Aside from Ted Nugent (who could probably turn Thomas Jefferson anti-gun, if it meant not having to listen to any more of Ted's inane bluster), everything Piers did on the subject ended up leaving us in a good light – in spite of his best(?) efforts.

    Maybe Piers can find employment as the POTUS's public relations front man

    Other than Uncle Ted (too "unusual"), who would you like to see replace Piers?

    Those from Virginia should think kindly of "Doc" Thompson - Doc has a new show in Michigan(?) and has been substituting for Glenn Beck for some time since leaving WRVA in Richmond. Doc has charisma, style, character, broad appeal.....and he will make you really think.

    In order for that to happen he would actually have to have viewers. If he had viewers he would still have a show.

    Uhm...just so you know TED does not support open carry, infact he is ANTI-OC! Something to think about when posting on a forum called: Open Carry . org.

    I have nothing against CCers, however some of them would like to see us eliminated.

    Never could understand those who say they support rights....except (this way, or that way)? Either you support all rights, or you really support none of them. Ted has made it clear he supports none really.

    God. That guy is such a clown.

    He calls me a weirdo?

    There's only one response:

    BTW: "The whole tactical advantage.... is the tactical advantage!" (applause)

    (That's at 2:21 in the first link.)

    I would love to get that guy in a discussion environment where he couldn't just shout and throw insults. I would (seriously) destroy him. (Not that I'd have any difficult owning him at shouting or insulting either. )
