Piers Morgan

Can't believe that this paragon and icon of journalistic integrity hasn't got a thread yet.
Off to GB News, apparently.

It's just a hill. Get over it.

    He's a lizard. How he is in the public eye is disgusting.

    He loves being the centre of attention so would probably be highly chuffed at this thread. Regardless of the direction it goes in.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.

    I don't identify with half his comments or his style but I find the whole cancellation culture so abhorrent that he has my support.

    All he said is he didn't believe a word and was hounded for not taking a massive victim call at face value.

    He also cried like a little baby when someone tried to say something he didn't want to hear.

    He's had a terrible time getting his face on TV over the past 20 years. Censorship, I tells you.

    I dont see why not its an open forum let people say what they think re him.

    Personally i think he is entitled to his opinion, i dont think Harry and Megan should of appeared on tv when they did really bad timing when Phillip has being ill. And do i think shes telling the truth re the other royals hmmmmm i am not sure.

    That depends on whether people keep posting in it. Biden is struggling at the moment. Trump though, he was a real player!

    He is of course entitled to his opinion and may self publish that at will, but while he's on the clock his employers are entitled to set whatever limits they see fit within the law. If he'd put the same opinion across in a different way he might still be at GMB, but that would require him to exercise some basic level of self control.

    Here we go again. He IS allowed to speak his mind. But if or when people do that, they need to be aware that it may have consequences for them. Which it did, in this case. It's not like he's in jail or anything.

    ITV seemed quite happy for him display a lack of self control until this. Same with Jeremy Kyle. It looks a lot like crocodile tears to me that they only show concern when the shock jocks they hire cause a scandal that blows up in their face. ITV shares were down £250 million on the back of Piers leaving last time I looked and GMB ratings instantly went down. Going forward they will need to work out if they really care about mental health or ratings.

    Everyone's entitled to their opinion.
    What I object to is when he repeatedly spouts forth in some self-aggrandising way only to behave like a spoilt child and have a paddy when someone gives him a taste of his own medicine.
    For the record, I probably agree with him on Meghan, but I'm not a fan of his.

    The shares are only down as compared to the temporary bump at the start of the week, probably from beating BBC ratings that morning.

    If you remove the bump from the ratings and the drop (whether that's from Piers leaving or just the market correcting) it's like nothing happened. In fact they're still up on the previous week.

    Yes the rise in the share value last week due to the ratings winning presenter who has now left. We'll see how the share price and ratings fair in the months to come.

    ITV is worth exactly the same as it was at 4pm on Monday. Which is £200M more than it was this time last week.

    Wasn't the interview itself just before that bump? Probably the most talked about thing on ITV in years.

    he didn't say they were lying, he said he didn't believe them. There's a world of difference.

    So you say you don’t believe what someone is saying. Implying they are not telling the truth therefore they are lying. I think you are splitting hairs.
