First, when you read the title it should sound something like this:
Now why is Jeremy Clarkson my hero?
I always knew there was a reason I rooted for him on Top Gear. Now given all the commentary around Piers as of late my distaste for the sniveling ass-hat should be obvious. However if you look at the reason he was originally fired from the Daily Mirror his lack of ethics and morals becomes obvious.
Morgan was fired as Editor of the Daily Mirror on 14 May 2004 after authorising the newspaper’s publication of photographs allegedly showing Iraqi prisoners being abused by British Army soldiers from the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment. Within days the photographs were shown to be crude fakes. Under the headline “SORRY.. WE WERE HOAXED”, the Mirror responded that it had fallen victim to a “calculated and malicious hoax” and apologised for the publication of the photographs.
He will do anything and sell out anyone if it will improve his ratings or make him a buck.
h/t to Kevin on this one.
