Alex Jones was interviewed on Piers Morgan last night. Jones is the one who initiated a petition to the White House to have Morgan deported for inciting crimes against the Constitution.

The White House actually responded.

Morgan should be deported because he's the lowest jeernalist scum of the earth*, but since that's not an acceptable reason to deport someone, here he stays. The only person who could "deport" Morgan is his employer, CNN, by firing him.

Unfortunately, Jones did not acquit himself. His behavior was embarrassing and a missed opportunity to defend the Second Amendment. One step forward...two steps back.

* For those not fully aware of Morgan's "credentials," he was an entertainment reporter for The Sun (1989-94), and editor of News of the World (1994-95) and the Daily Mirror (1995-04) (all British). He did damage to reputations at all of them (which he weakly acknowledged on one of his shows but did not apologize) and laughed about it all the way to the bank. Lying, gossip, unfounded innuendo, going for the jugular.

There’s also Morgan’s involvement in the Viglen shares scam. Morgan made thousands ramping up share values by promotion in his paper; yet escaped the fate of fellow journalist-conspirators who went to prison. Shouldn’t be a surprise that James Hipwell and Anil Bhoyrul are helping to spill the beans on Morgan’s dodgy background.

After having practically been run out of Britain on a rail (Iraq photo hoax), Morgan took Simon Cowell's advice and moved to America where U.S. viewers don't really know his tawdry tabloid history. Now Morgan's sordid past is being exposed along with every other low life at NOTW. Without a public acknowledg­ement--inde­ed, an apology for deceiving the public during his years as a presence at not one but three notorious British tabloids--­Morgan will never be able to wash the stink off himself from being mentored by Rupert Murdoch and Kelvin Mackenzie, both repulsive yellow journalist­s. Now he's trotting himself out as a mainstream interviewe­r on CNN. Shame on CNN for hiring this disreputab­le and lame excuse for a journalist­. It's a sad day for journalism when Piers Morgan is considered "quality journalism­."
