According to the New York Times, Piers Morgan and CNN have decided to end his show due to lousy ratings.

Politico confirmed the story:

Let the blame game speculation begin:

A pro gun control voice with a minimal audience will still probably be missed by Nanny Bloomberg:

What’s next for “Musket”?


Good advice:

Come on, NRA, you know you want to:


Yeah, that didn’t work out so well.

          • CherDash

            I worked for the federal government. They wouldn’t lower his salary. He’d get the same or more than the current dog walker gets. Yes, he does have a lot to pay back to us, but they don’t do things in the federal government the way they do things in the real world.

    Mr. Carr (NYT) writes:

    Crossing an ocean for a replacement for Larry King, who had ratings problems of his own near the end, was probably not a great idea to begin with. For a cable news station like CNN, major stories are like oxygen. When something important or scary happens in America, many of us have an immediate reflex to turn on CNN. When I find Mr. Morgan telling me what it all means, I have a similar reflex to dismiss what he is saying. It is difficult for him to speak credibly on significant American events because, after all, he just got here.

    CNN can survive the ratings game by taking a sharp right turn.

Of course, he was slapped down on his own show several times for this by various guests. And, CNN could not stand to see him get his backside waxed in the ratings by Megyn Kelly night after night.

    He did once say to Ms Kelly, ‘bring it on.’ Well she brought it. And, you’re out of here because of it. Later, loser.
