Piers Morgan Promises to fight Cancel Culture with New Talk Show

British journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan vows to take on cancel culture through his new daily talk show that will air on Sky News Australia, TalkTV (brand new station in the UK), and Fox Nation in the US. His new show will take place every weekday evening. Piers Morgan is known for his abrasive and often controversial style of conducting shows.

“I’ll Take Those Ultra Woke Lunatics Head On,” said the famed broadcaster, talking about cancel culture. He further said, “I’ll be calling out extremists from all sides, not just in Australia but anywhere – and especially those who think cancel culture’s a great idea and want to compel us all to lead their own dreary joyless lifestyles.” Talking about his new show, he said, “It is a fearless forum for lively debate and agenda-setting interviews, and a place that celebrates the right for everyone to have an opinion.”

This new talk show is part of the multi-million dollar deal he signed with Rupert Murdoch that is worth $67 million. This high amount shows that Murdoch is aware of the pulling power of Morgan, who he dubbed as “the broadcaster every channel wants but is too afraid to hire.”After his departure from CNN in 2014, Piers Morgan was largely successful as a broadcaster. His first stint after leaving CNN was with ITV, where he was part of the breakfast show Good Morning Britain. Initially hired as a part-timer, his presence on the show caused its ratings to go up. And it helped that Piers Morgan never shied away from controversial opinions, which only increased his number of viewers. He was also praised for criticizing the British government’s response to the Covid pandemic.

His successful run on Good Morning Britain came to an end following Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle that aired in March 2021. During that interview, the Duchess of Sussex claimed that she suffered from mental health issues and said that she “didn’t want to be alive anymore.” Morgan had strong words to say to what the Duchess said: He said he “didn’t believe a word” she said.

This statement created some backlash for Morgan, who was critical of the Duchess for some time, with critics saying that the TV personality was downplaying mental health issues and being insensitive. He was targeted by cancel culture, with more than 58,000 viewers complaining to OFCOM, UK’s governing body for TVs. The whole saga came to a tumultuous end when Morgan stormed off the set of Good Morning Britain after being criticized for his comments on Meghan by colleague Alex Beresford, the weatherman.

That was not the first time Piers Morgan came within the crosshairs of cancel culture. He angered the woke mob in 2019 when he mocked the notion of gender fluidity by saying that he “identifies as a penguin.” Even though this incident led to a petition signed by 90,000 people asking for his removal, Morgan would keep his spot on ITV for the time being.
