The man allowed death threats on air and didn't say a damn word about it. He actually agreed with them saying he should borrow his brother's uniform. Not only should he be thrown off air, but he should be brought up on charges based on conspiracy to commit murder as well as terroristic threats

Please show me anywheres in the Constitution or the Bills of Rights that states it also applies to visitors or "house guests" in America. I know its a birth-right for ALL Americans, but PM is NOT an American. As far as I understand, PM only has the rights that we afford him and those can be revoked at any time.


I am sad to say this is a common misconception held by many here in the US. First let me state I am no fan of Moran’s however I am a fan of the second amendment and the first but I do believe there will always be room for improvement on the constitution I cannot specifically state where just that it can be. Now to address the first amendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Notice that it does not state anywhere within these lines that only citizens of the US enjoy these freedoms in fact the right to free speech is considered god given which means every human being born unto this earth but this document and these words guarantee this right to anyone within our borders regardless of nationality.

Yes more blind hatred of Alex Jones.


Funny that fear mongering and blatant lies has become acceptible for the masses but talking about gun control isn't....Interesting..

I want Piers Morgan OFF AIR because he agreed with death threats made towards Alex Jones and his FAMILY! That is not FREEDOM OF SPEECH! He also sat there and belittled our constitution "your little book" while slamming it on the desk. Complete and total disrespect. Americans need to demand this man be taken off American tv.

As to Alex Jones, Fear mongering is only FEAR MONGERING when it isn't true. You can't be charged with yelling FIRE in a theater if there is actually a FIRE IN THE DAMN THEATER!

Ah, yes but telling the american public that the government has FEMA death camps to send the masses to where they will bury them in FEMA coffins(total lie) is okay...

Interesting logic you have there...

And your telling me that Alex Jones doesn't advocate violence?

I am no particular fan of Piers Morgan but I have seen no evidence that he faked photos or was even aware that the published photos were fakes. He took the rap because he was editor of the Daily Mirror at the time.

What evidence do you have to back up your allegations ?


His ethics as a "Journalist" should be questioned, especially if hes going to run a Hoax with a "blatant" Agenda.


Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan has been sacked after the newspaper conceded photos of British soldiers abusing an Iraqi were fake.



The BBC's Nicholas Witchell said it appeared Piers Morgan remained unrepentant right to the end "According to one report Mr Morgan refused the demand to apologize, was sacked and immediately escorted from the building," he said.


Editor sacked over 'hoax' photos

He wont admit its a Hoax, and he refused to apologize for it. EVERYONE else has admitted it, including the Owners of the Mirror. Hes trash.

It's only a bloody book, half of you lot harp on about how you don't understand why Muslims get so offended at Koran burnings, yet you whinge and moan when someone slams a load of paper on a table?

You harp on about free speech, yet you cry foul when someone says something you don't agree with? News flash pal, free speech is global, not just American.

All I see is a bunch of hypocrites that are so blinded by your oh so precious second amendment that you are forgetting one of the the very important parts of the first amendment.

Yes Piers Morgan is an idiot, we have dealt with his smug, arrogant attitude long before you guys even heard of him, and quite frankly, we don't want him back. But for crying out loud, listen to yourselves! If you can't handle what he is saying, change the channel......we did.

So the UK has FREE SPEECH then? Is that why you're locked up for being racist or offensive? Ask King George what he thought about the declaration of Independents and the Constitution... right, he ended up in the looney bin. Correct me if I'm wrong, but there was a time when Brits weren't treated like children and could actually own firearms right? That was until you all did what you're so good at - bowing knee to royalty (as you still do to this day).

I don't care if Piers Morgan goes on TV and worships King George as God. The line was drawn when he supported death threats on national TV. That is NOT FREE SPEECH! You don't want him back? Well we don't want your garbage dumped on us and certainly not garbage that thinks himself to be some British supremacist talking down to Americans on his Twitter.

When free speech is used to threaten, it moves beyond a 1st amendment issue.

He isn't the first to do that, and won't be the last either. Nobody likes to admit they were wrong..

Agree.

But........

His Ethics are in question. Hes the Geraldo Rivera of 2013. I would assume that he will make a mistake, that will get himself fired from CNN.

Popcorn is ready.

Only idiots cant tell the difference between a joke in bad taste and a real threat to kill someone.

A threat is a threat it doesn't matter if it was a joke or not. If Alex Jones said the same thing about Morgan he would have been arrested. This double standard does not apply. Morgan needs to be fired and possibly even brought up on charges. Yes I'm serious.

Well for whatever reason (I think it should be for his constitution remark if he's not a cizen of this country then he has no right to complain about it) I couldn't think of a better dude to be pulled off the
(and certainly there are other's who should go. He's a very stupid man even for CNN. He leaves a show that has ratings to stay with a show that barely has any? I certainly couldn't figure that one one would think he's made more money with America's got talent.

I am very pro second amendment but what I see here are a bunch of misinformed hypocrites when talking about blather mouth Morgan. I have read it in this very thread where my kinsman have complained about him slamming a book on the table which BTW was not a copy of the constitution and then ignorantly state that he is not protected by what is written in the constitution because he isn’t a citizen.

I hate it when people attack our constitution but I hate it more when the people who are protected by that constitution clearly show they have never taken the time to read and understand it then go on to misrepresent it to the world. It screams hypocrite and is becoming of a two faced bigot.

No, i seriously doubt it. People joke about this type of thing all of the time, our justice system wouldn't be able to handle it.
