Piers Morgan interviewing Alex Jones is like watching Frost/Nixon on acid.—

Talk show host and professional nutball Alex Jones was allowed on Piers Morgan’s CNN program tonight in order to make “Musket” Morgan look sane. (Well, the real reason was because Jones was a co-creator of the infamous “deport Piers Morgan” White House petition.) He did not disappoint. Instead of sitting for an interview, Jones merely showed up and started yelling at Morgan. Among other things, he labeled our favorit Brit a “hatchet man for the New World Order” and asked Morgan for a boxing match — and those were two of the most coherent things he said all night.
On one hand, it was sad. However, it was funny to watch Piers Morgan desperately barking, “Alex … Alex … Alex … calm down!” to no avail.
No, not the 9/11 conspiracies! Please!
Oh, also he called psychiatric medication “mass murder pills” and “suicide pills.”
In fairness, the accent was well done and probably the single most hilarious moment of the whole train wreck. It almost made Jones watchable.
Actually, Bryan, we kind of agree with you, and it takes a lot to get us to defend Piers Morgan.
Mercifully, it was a relatively short segment. The best summary was probably offered by the next guest, Alan Dershowitz, who said that in a court of law, Jones would be referred to as something other than a “witness.”
Yeah, that’s one word for what he is. We disagree with Morgan on the Second Amendment as much as anyone, but he played this one well. There is no worse representative for gun rights than Alex Jones. And speaking of amendments, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney had some news for Morgan as well today.
As is the right to bear arms … right?
