It is well-known that before heading stateside, CNN host Piers Morgan made his name across the pond as the editor of London tabloid News of the World. The man that hired him there was an Australian media mogul named Rupert Murdoch.
Morgan was recently in the news due to a White House petition that called for him to be deported as a result of his personal view on gun control. The White House nixed that idea, but Murdoch apparently thinks there should be a new petition:
Let’s have petition to keep Piers Morgan in U.S.We need him, as does CNN.
