See, Piers Morgan has this history of doctoring facts and spewing lies to fit his particular agenda. In 2004 Morgan was fired as Editor of the Daily Mirror after authorizing publication of photographs that allegedly showed Iraqi prisoners being abused by the British military. The photographs weren’t just fakes. They were ridiculous and obvious.
That didn’t stop Morgan, though. So he’s either monumentally stupid for not recognizing an obvious fake, or he just didn’t care that they were fakes in his zeal to paint the British military in the most negative light possible.
Morgan’s ethics have been suspect more than once. In 2000, this narcissistic windbag was found by the Press Complaints Commission to have breached the Code of Conduct on financial journalism for buying a ton of shares of the computer company Viglen before his newspaper promoted the company as a good buy.
Morgan’s current MO appears to be: when facts are not on your side, lie. And after being spanked by guest after guest on the gun control issue, including Ben Shapiro, who did a great job destroying that sanctimonious shitslurper…
…this fuckwit decided to make up some facts.
Morgan claimed in an Aug. 13 interview with military history expert A.W.R. Hawkins that Virginia had the highest murder rate in the country, according to 2009 FBI statistics.
Hawkins had cited Virginia as a state where gun sales increased and violent crime decreased in 2012.
Morgan disagreed, asking Hawkins to explain his “warped twisted logic.” (Way to be an objective journalist, douche canoe!)
Morgan pressed Hawkins on which state had the highest murder rate in the country. When Hawkins said he didn’t know, Morgan shot back, “Allow me to help you. Allow me to help you. It’s Virginia.”
Morgan continued, “It’s Virginia, the very state you just quoted to me, actually has the highest murder rate in the country, according to 2009 statistics by the FBI.”
Only one problem with that claim: it’s a complete fabrication.
According to the FBI’s 2009 Uniform Crime Report, Virginia is not even close to having the highest murder rate in the country! Some notable murder numbers that were higher than Virginia include the leftarded gun control utopias of Illinois, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, New York, California, Michigan and Maryland. Fact of the matter is that Virginia came in behind 23 others states for the number of murder and non-negligent manslaughter.
But facts won’t stop Piers Morgan. When he’s not lying to support his idiotic agenda, he’s bullying and insulting his guests.
In other words, Morgan is a supercilious, scrotum-licking, queefing dickweasel, who somehow managed to fellate his way into a job and used his obviously chapped lips and well-worn pair of knee pads to somehow keep from being fired.
How long before CNN realizes what kind of douchemonkey they have employed and sends him packing back to England to salvage what’s left of their tattered credibility?
