– Deport Piers Morgan, demands US petition (Independent, Dec 24, 2012):
A petition calling for TV host Piers Morgan to be deported from the US following his outspoken comments on gun control has attracted more than 63,000 signatures.
The CNN host provoked the fury of gun rights activists when he interviewed Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt, in the wake of the school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, and said to him: “You’re an unbelievably stupid man, aren’t you?
“You have absolutely no coherent argument. You don’t actually give a damn about the gun murder rate in America.”
