In an extensive interview for the New York Times, Larry King agreed to discuss anything with reporter Mark Leibovich — that is… anything except for ex-CNN host Piers Morgan.
When King’s show, Larry King Live, ended, Morgan was selected to take over for him. And since then, they’ve had an on-again off-again Twitter feud going on.
As Leibovich reports:
No topic between King and me was off-limits except one: Piers Morgan. King’s publicist, Jen Hobbs, requested that I refrain from asking King anything about the host who succeeded him on CNN. Things had become ornery between King and Morgan, whose own show was canceled last year. King said in an interview with Howard Stern that watching Morgan flame out in his slot was like when ‘‘your mother-in-law goes over the cliff in your new car.’’ Morgan then called King a ‘‘poisonous twerp’’ and a ‘‘graceless, petty little man’’ on Twitter.
