    Another 'Anal Pluctation' from Piers Morgan

    Piers Morgan has never been one to allow facts to get in the way of his opinion. Not only is he a pompous a__, he is a bully to his guests on the show. Here is another shining example...

    When CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t have the data to back up his case on gun control being linked to crime, he seemed to get creative with the 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.”

    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.”

    But a closer look shows Morgan’s statements were not true.

    According to the FBI’s 2009 Crime In The United States report, Virginia came in behind 23 others states, including Louisiana, Maryland and Tennessee, for the number of murder and non-negligent manslaughter. Virginia didn’t top the firearm murder rate category either.

    Where Morgan came up with his information is not yet known. Morgan's blog mentions the interview but doesn't address the faulty facts. Calls made to CNN for comment were not immediately returned.

    I suspect that would be considered 'cruel and unusual punishment' to the gang bangers.

    Anal Pluctation. I assume anal leakage goes along with that condition which would explain why we hear so much ehh errr feces flowing when he is around.

    Works for me.

    If I had my way Piers Morgan would be banished to some tropical island somewhere with no passport, no cash and all attitude as per his usual loveable self.

    I was watching Piers and just a few minutes ago, he admitted that his facts about Virginia were wrong. He apologized for his mistake. Not that it will make any difference. He's still a do do head. Sorry for my abusive language, couldn't help it.

    IMO, Piers is a troll.

    Typical of the mainstream media. Lie upfront and apologize in Section B, page 12.

    Piers gives me the creeps...very doughy looking and terrified of those big, bad guns.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Lol.. "Lie upfront and apologize in Section B, page 12." That's a great one, JL. I might have to borrow that, of course, if you don't mind.

    I really don't see how anybody could stand this clown enough to watch him. I tried once and lasted all of about 10 seconds, at the most. Everything about the guy just annoys the hell out of me.

    The problem is that both sides of the media empires lie and lie often. The problem is that the people that follow them don't notice the lies of the people who they agree with and jump all over the lies of the other side. Lies are lies, doesn't matter what side they come from.
