Piers, it bothers the fark out of me when you, as a journalist, make assumptions of someone's innocence or guilt based on what makes for good tv.  Can you please go back to deciding whether or not a juggler should go to Las Vegas? Why have this brother on tv to begin with? For a gun control debate?  Jesus Piers, do you ever feel threatened in your home, behind the gated walls with your bodyguard on call?

Move to Centerline, MI, North Milwaukee, Compton, Liberty City and then let's have a reasonable debate about whether a citizen has the right to carry a gun on his or her person.  By taking a stand and having this little mockery of a debate Piers, you seek only ratings not a clear discussion.

The only time you've ever felt threatened was by Howie Mandel's personality.

Piers is a prime example of aliens coming in on H1-B visas to take jobs from Americans and do a lousy job on top of it all.

Piers Morgan sure gets the cons angry.  He must be saying something right.

To be fair, Howie Mandel's terrifying, especially when he puts on his clown make-up.

Why would Piers Morgan (or any journalist  have this asshole on in the first place?
 
2013-02-07 09:55:41 AM
Schooled?

MORGAN: Robert, Robert, Robert. You were not there either, were you?

ZIMMERMAN: No, I wasn't there either. But I know the person telling the story, better than you do.


Sounds like remedial school.

Oh, it's a nutclusters link. Never mind.

This is probably true. It's kind of the Howard Stern model for ratings when your target audience is people who want to think they're smart. It doesn't seem to be going too well.

Why are lying, unsufferable non-douchebags so terrified of this strong, intelligent foreigner?

News Busters are still mad that Mr. Morgan began purchasing a significant number of pies from their rival pie shop and claims to prefer their rivals because it is "what he knows" despite News Busters having provided him ample samples pies in the past.

Piers Morgan Invokes Trayvon Martin to Push Gun Control; George Zimmerman's Brother Disagrees

No love for Morgan here but one might suspect a teeny bit of bias from this guest on this topic.

You can tell cons know they're on the right side of history with this guns issue, since they're giving it all they've got to spread their gospel...in order to stick to the host of a middling, at best, cable news show host.

So I can carry a gun and stalk someone and then when they turn around and confront me i'm allowed to shoot them? Nice.

I think at this point that the only people watching Piers Morgan are the right-wing blogs so they can point out when he's wrong about something.

2013-02-07 10:09:19 AM
When you say you understand, that implies that you were there somehow.

No, it doesn't.

My point is if George had not been carrying a gun that night, Trayvon Martin would be celebrating his 18th birthday with his family today.

Good point, Piers.

Obviously the guy's brother is gonna try to stick up for him here and he does but hereally  did a piss poor job of it despite NB's declaration of victory over the forces of teh ebil libs.

It's funny how all the farker's convinced of Zimmerman's guilt are the same who cheer when a bus full of Israeli school children gets blown up.

I'm sure his last name has nothing to do with it.

I'm just saying, there's something about Piers Morgan that ruffles the feathers of the mainstream MSM media consumer.  Why are they so upset?

Are they seriously challenging the notion that Zimmerman pursued Martin? Like Martin chased down Zimmerman and forced him out of his truck at skittlepoint?

It's funny how conservatives think that liberals enjoy killing as much as they do.

You may be accusing hundreds of farkers of rejoicing over the deaths of children, but at least you aren't making any "personal attacks"

"You would accept, would you not, that if your brother had not gone out armed with a gun that day, Trayvon Martin would be celebrating his 18th birthday today," Morgan first pressed Zimmerman.

But Zimmerman responded with his side of the story: "You know, there's no telling what would have happened. We don't know if we would have been commemorating shortly the one-year anniversary that George was another statistic, another person killed at the hands of his attacker."
He added, "You know, you can only slam someone's head violently into the concrete so many times. You can only break someone's nose and sit on them for so long while they're screaming for help for over a minute before that person has to take some kind of action."

What was clear was that there were two sides to the debate, but...


I assume that at this point Matt Hadro sat at his computer like a middle schooler trying to write an essay on The Odyssey.  Because from there on out it makes progressively less sense.  That's the exchange under discussion though.

You decide who "got schooled", imo, it's the truth.

salvador.hardin: Are they seriously challenging the notion that Zimmerman pursued Martin? Like Martin chased down Zimmerman and forced him out of his truck at skittlepoint?


Well, if you would stop listening to the MSM media and read the facts of the case then you would see that Trayvon "Crack Rock" Martin was high on purple drank and white guilt when he stalked and savagely attacked "America's Watch Captain" George Zimmerman like a wild, ape-like beast.
 
2013-02-07 10:22:51 AM
Piers failed when the evidence was brought up, leading to his saying "yeah, but you weren't there."

So his understanding(read assumptions contradicted by available evidence) are factual, but relying on facts can be dismissed by one's failure to be present for the events.

Does it hurt to abandon logic on this topic?

Hey, you know whose ads I don't block? Reddit's. They get to put ads on my screen when I visit their website. I'll bet they like that a lot.

If Trayvon had a CCW, and had turned around and shot Zimmerman how would that have played out in the courts and press?

I wondered that at the time, hadn't thought about it since it all shook out, and am once again flabbergasted about the whole mess.

s2s2s2: Piers failed when the evidence was brought up, leading to his saying "yeah, but you weren't there."


Zimmerman said it first and acted like he had made an actual point.

Morgan just pointed out that neither of them was there.

ZIMMERMAN: What you should understand and be apprised of are the actual facts. When you say you understand, that implies that you were there somehow.

Apparently, according to Zimmerman's brother Piers can't know any facts because he wasn't there but Zimmerman's brother could because he knew his brother or something. That's not bringing up evidence that's going "Nu-uh" at the top of your lungs.

/Disclaimer: I don't think I've ever actually seen Piers Morgan's show so I don't really have an opinion of him one way or another.

Good question.  I think that Trayvon would have been charged with murder and gun owners would blame Trayvon as another thug that had no business having a weapon (like the people involved in the  Aurora shooting, Newtown shooting, etc).

That comment was the last straw, I just plonked the moron.

Guy shoots an unarmed kid for being black, and people who think he's guilty a) cheer for dead kids of ANY sort, and B) are convinced because he has a Jewish last name?  What in the unholy fark am I reading?
