    Piers Morgan talkshow axed by CNN after collapse in ratings

    CNN has confirmed it is pulling the plug on Piers Morgan, as falling ratings finally took their toll on a transatlantic talk show experiment that failed to connect with American primetime audiences.

    [...]

    Morgan, who lost his job at the Daily Mirror after publishing fake pictures of alleged British troop misconduct in Iraq, had built a reputation for campaigns on gun control while at CNN but was blamed for a steady slide in the show’s ratings since Larry King’s retirement.

    “It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings,” Morgan told the New York Times, which first broke news of the CNN decision on Sunday.

    “Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it.”

    He's a crybaby that is a liberal even in his own country. Go back to the UK and eat your pudding.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish!
    Armed and annoyingly well informed!

    There are two constants when dealing with liberals:
    1) Liberals never quit until they are satisfied.
    2) Liberals are never satisfied.

    Ya know, he does attribute his shows' failure on thee, not he. It is our wild west mentality that fosters this gun culture that is the problem. If only Cornwallis had stuck it out another week or two, things would be different, different in a good way.

    I am sorry to see him go. His pompous attitude pissed almost every American off. I am sure that his show was the tipping point that pushed many Americans to openly declare a pro gun stance.

    My wife, who is a naturalized citizen and did not grow up with a gun culture was always sitting on the fence about gun rights UNTIL she saw a Piers Morgan rant. Now she sees guns as part of the broader blessings of Liberty which we enjoy.

    Couldn't happen to a better guy. The nerve of a Brit coming here and telling us Americans that we don't need our guns. Just because your citizens gave up most of their guns doesn't mean we should do the same.

    Same here. He may have served a purpose, at least. But I'll admit to never having liked that childish, self-righteous, pompous arsehole (not to be confused with a$$hole), and...... where was I going with this?

    Nonetheless, he served a purpose.

    Hearing him speak, the "on-the-fence" folks may have realized how stupid, FLAWED, and downright illogical the anti-gun "logic" is. Hearing that whiny pitch of his every time he couldn't awe people into silence with his rhetoric and ad hominem attacks (amongst other tactics) may have helped our cause. It's like that Internet meme floating around: I wouldn't have bought one if they had never tried to ban it.

    If enough people watch his remarks about how it is the fault of the entire U.S. that his show got cancelled, I think we could win more people over from the fence.

    And how's that working out for them? Our crime rate was high but is going down and theirs was low but is going up.

    Piers Morgan commits two flagrant logical fallacies every time he opens his mouth.

    1. He cherry-picks a small subset of crime data, the number of murders by firearm, to the exclusion of all other data, such as violent crime overall.
    2. He wrongly compares raw numbers, rather than crime rates per capita.


    That's Morgan's tiny, sick, twisted microcosm of reality. Let's see how the numbers stack up in REALITY:

Name:	UK vs USA Crime Stats and Rates.jpg 
Views:	93 
Size:	46.6 KB

    Observations, based on FACT:

    1. While the UK has just 20% of the population of USA, it has more than half the crime rate. Thus, it has 2.74 times more crime per capita than USA.

    2. The UK has indeed managed to minimize the number of murders. That, however, is by no means the end of the argument on crime or why we fight to preserve our right to keep and bears arms.

    3. The UK's assault rate is 2.33 times greater than our assault rate.

    4. The UK's rape rate is 2.25 times greater than our rape rate.

    5. The UK's rate for other murders and crimes is more than three times higher than here in USA.

    Here's why we fight to preserve our right to keep and bear arms: The crime rates between the UK and USA used to be similar. That changed when the UK deprived their citizens of their right to keep and bear arms. Following their widespread confiscation of firearms, crime in the UK tripled. While murder with firearms dropped, murder overall DID NOT. It ROSE. Other crimes also rose.

    Why did UK crime rates rise after the UK confiscated their firearms? Simple: The people were now UNARMED. They no longer had any means to resist violent crime. The UK's policies turned their own citizens into VICTIMS.

    Piers Morgan wants everyone in the United States of America to become a VICTIM, just like everyone in the United Kingdom. In order to convince you, HE LIES, primarily by filtering out all the OTHER information you need in order to make an informed decision. That's what mainstream media does, people: They LIE, again, usually by withholding key information, such as the information I'm providing you above.

    Piers Morgan will never tell you the total crime rate in his country is nearly three times higher than it is here in the U.S., or that a major portion of that is violent crime, or that it's the direct result of disarming the law-abiding citizens of the United Kingdom.

    I think this thread has provided Mr. Morgan with more "viewers" than his former CNN show.

    It does not matter if it true or accurate, Mr. Morgan's data, he only needs to say it on air.

    What a Dweeb
    I can't help but find it amusing that breitbart.com is running this article, after watching Ben Shapiro verbally curb stomp Morgan, not once, but twice on his own show.

    Everyone who has been on his show stomped him. Now if we could get all the other bed wetting, anti-American, socialist,communist, progressive, Constitution-hating, Obama boot lickers to follow him.

    Unfortunately, most of them appear to have been born here, so the UK would just end up sending them back to us, eventually.

    Really? Not their politicians. They agree with Piers.

    Same stats as before, reworked and in a more comprehensive format, including a nice graphic you can share with friends on Facebook or elsewhere.

    Their pols might agree with Piers, but the incessant whining of the Obama libs would surely get them deported after a while.

    Thanks for that graphic, pretty damned well done. Onto Facebook it goes.

    He seems to have alienated almost everyone here. I found a letter by Jeremy Clarkson. I like him because he punched morgan in the head for pi$$ing him off. He enjoyed it so much he hit morgan again. I did like what Clarkson did to him on the last flight on the Concorde. See the letter below
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
