Hyperbolic twat Piers Morgan and Don Lemon (who, when covering another famous singer’s death a few years ago, called Michael Jackson “an accidental civil rights leaders” and accused critics of CNN’s wall-to-wall coverage of being “elitist”) will co-anchor Whitney Houston’s funeral Saturday in what is sure to be a new low for the network that … Continue reading CNN’s coverage of Whitney Houston funeral certain to take obsequiousness to new heights

She … Continue reading Barbara Walters embarrasses herself
