Piers Morgan shreds partisan media in America
- Former CNN host Piers Morgan appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight.
- Piers Morgan won Celebrity Apprentice when Donald Trump was host, Piers remarks this is “proof” of Donald Trump’s good judgment.
- Morgan says some in the Mainstream Media are “utterly determined to bring the Trump presidency crashing down.”
- He adds that the “vast majority of people at… CNN do have integrity” but that “people lower down the food chain” may have conducted themselves inappropriately.
Piers Morgan gave a powerful interview with Tucker Carlson describing the relationship between Trump and the media.
Piers said “There are as many left wing papers in Britain as there are right wing… What I don’t like is this pretense from papers like the New York Times that somehow they are completely beyond any approach.”
The two discussed the lack of respect, honesty, and fairness in what Piers called a “two way relationship.”
“It’s pretty rich,” former CNN host Piers Morgan tells Fox’s Tucker Carlson about the media’s treatment of Donald Trump, that the American media went after Donald Trump as hard as they did — including his former employer. Having helped create the Trump phenomenon, Morgan says, CNN and the rest of the media got increasingly “more and more virulent” as the election continued. Morgan makes an important distinction between on-air hosts and “lower level” producers at CNN, blaming the bias on the latter much more than the former, but says that overall, “it stank”:
As for what happens now, Morgan says that both sides need to calm down and reflect. “I think there is fault on both sides here” for the current “dangerous and toxic” relationship between the Trump administration and the media. “I think that the media have got to start showing President Trump a bit more respect. And he in turn and his White House operation have got to show the media more respect — and they’ve all got to move on.”
