Piers Morgan tweeted a photograph of a “rally” of his supporters outside CNN center in Washington, DC, but whereas over 100,000 Americans signed a petition to deport the CNN host, the rally in support of Morgan was noticeably less popular.
Four people showed up.
Morgan re-tweeted the image with the message, “Supporters rally behind @piersmorgan w signs outside #CNN DC bureau.”
Given that Morgan’s CNN viewing figures are only slightly less abysmal than those of fellow gun control advocate Chris Matthews, one wonders whether this turnout amounts to half his audience.
One of the “supporters” is holding a sign that encourages CNN to give Morgan a raise, presumably upset at the paucity of the former Daily Mirror editor’s $8 million dollar contract. Morgan got the prime time CNN gig despite being fired from the Mirror for printing a fake story and being embroiled in the phone hacking scandal.
