Former newspaper editor and Britain's Got Talent judge Piers Morgan will replace TV presenter Larry King on the US network CNN, it has been
Morgan's selection as King's replacement had been widely expected for the past few months.
CNN president Jon Klein said Morgan can "look at all aspects of the news with style and humour with an occasional good laugh in the process".
So I understand that he is somewhat familiar with American audiences through 'Americas got Talent', but does anybody else think this is a extremely
poor choice? Do you think that CNN or the American public realize how much this man is detested in the UK?
I mean Larry King is, well, he is Larry King. An institution if you will. Whereas Piers Morgan is nothing but a slimey, money grubbing horrible person
who certainly is not worth mentioning in the same breath as King. Whether you like Larry King or not you can't argue with the numbers he has racked
up over many, many years and you could even go on to say the man is a living ledgend. It is a very sad day to think that Morgan should be held in any
type of regard what so ever.
Occasionally if I remember or have the time I would watch Larry King Live but the day that Morgan takes over I will not watch it anymore.
In short a Very poor and wrong choice CNN, enjoy your mire.
