BREAKING NEWS: I am no longer a @CNN employee.
— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) September 2, 2014
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.
