Well, it’s official. Piers Morgan tweeted out a few messages today, indicating he is officially no longer a CNN employee. (Although his primetime show was gutted, he hadn’t officially left the network and was supposedly returning to conduct big interviews — as expected, that isn’t happening…)
But after considerable thought, I decided not to accept it – and to try pastures new.

Most likely, the interviews (if the offer really even existed) were probably not as big as Piers would have wanted, would have been broadcast at inopportune times; or maybe the new contract wasn’t as good. Whatever it was, something upset Piers — otherwise, he wouldn’t have said when he signed off he’d be back with CNN specials.
