To be fair, Piers Morgan's politics were sometimes in the right place, but he always seemed more interested in smugly contending his fleeting assertions than effectively articulating much of a consistent ideology. So in the end he just came off as a combative blowhard. He made the announcement yesterday to little fanfare, also saying that he declined a two-year deal to host "40 big interview 'specials,'" but considering his show often devolved into a blustery shout-carnival, that one seems a little hard to swallow. Now if we could just get all the rest of CNN to leave CNN, we'd be getting somewhere.
