PIERS MORGAN: The Larry King verdict.

Piers Morgan is rising without trace in America

Romping Arse (anag)

In case you missed it, veteran US chat-show host Larry King told the BBC yesterday that that his successor, Piers Morgan “may have been oversold” by CNN.

Speaking to Radio 4’s PM programme, King was asked about the ratings for Piers Morgan Tonight, and politely commented:

“One of the problems they did was oversell it. He was going to be dangerous, he was gonna be water-cooler talk…..the network would’ve been better off starting quieter. He’s not bad, but he’s not dangerous. I’d say he’s an acceptable host”.

My own view on the Romping Arse is that it would be impossible to undersell him. The American public agrees, and after two weeks on air three-quarters of them had switched off. At one point in Week 3, he scored worse than a rival documentary….about supermarkets.

But revolution in Egypt perked up his ratings last week, and then a large donation to Mitt Romney’s campaign got the world’s most boring Republican onto the show. The result was a rating still 36% below King’s lifetime average.

Oh Mr Moron, what have you done?

You’ve been a load of rubbish since you left the Currant Bun.

  2. Piers, I have never replied to any talk show in my life. I am watching the interview with Tavis Smily and the discussion about Obama and corporate taxes. In my oppinion Smily has hit the nail on the head. Obama’s affectiveness as president isn’t about pulling out the race card; it’s about holding to the integrity to the people. The people meaning, those who are poor, have no health care, the middle class of which the economy rides on. I am so sick of hearing about the economy as if the economy has a soul, feels and has a mind of it’s own. Wake up people, human beings created the economy! As soon as the media mentions the word economy and diseminates this fear of panic with regards to our livelyhood; citizens panic. Humans are under the control of the government and always will be becuase we are programed to beleive that without the government/economic growth; citizens will always be dependant. At the end of the day, the government is set up so those in power can maintain the status quo. It’s the governments job to control people like me (middle class) because without us or the poor, the rich could not exist without a complete colapse. Piers my wish for you is this. When you interview a person, you respond so quickly that in my perception that you come across as in authentic. The moment that you ask a question and you are already formulating your response while the interviewee is responding, You are not participating in active listening. I witness you as not being present, connected or in the moment with those you interview. I experience you as frgid, going through the motion, lacking a spiritual warmth. I liked Tavis’s responsed, I felt that you missed the boat in engaging his convictions. It would be nice Piers, if you could hold the space and stay in the moment. Love and respect Paige
