Former “Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan made his first public appearance since departing the show last month when he was a guest on Tucker Carlson’s Fox Nation show “Tucker Carlson Today.” 

The Hill relayed the comments from the interview as Morgan didn’t change his stance on criticizing statements made by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and her husband, Prince Harry, during their interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

Furthermore, Morgan touched on what happened on the morning show’s set when weatherman Alex Beresford confronted him on the comments directed towards the couple. 

“It was an outrage. I wasn’t allowed to have an opinion that I didn’t believe what she was saying, even though it was clear to me in real-time as I was watching the interview that there were a number of things which couldn’t be true,” Morgan told Carlson.

“I was angry in the moment that he was trying to personalize this, make it I had some personal vendetta about Meghan Markle, which I don’t. And I came back. And we then had a pretty lively and quite enlightening, like half hour debate about this.”

Morgan also gave aspects concerning his decision to depart the show, which came down to his unwillingness to apologize for his comments on Meghan.

“I should be able to be a journalist and question the veracity of those statements. And frankly, I should be allowed in a democracy that values freedom of speech; I should be allowed to say, I’m sorry, I don’t believe you. But I wasn’t. I wasn’t allowed to do that,” Morgan said.

Chris Wallace Criticizes Former President Donald Trump

“[The Trump White House] was every man and woman for themselves. When they went on the Sunday shows, they were appealing to an audience of one, because President Trump watched,” Wallace said.

Fox News host Chris Wallace ripped former President Donald Trump in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter recently. Wallace said when he was covering the Trump administration there was a lot of misinformation coming from The White House.

“[The Trump White House] was every man and woman for themselves. When they went on the Sunday shows, they were appealing to an audience of one, because President Trump watched,” Wallace said. “So, when somebody went on, oftentimes there was a debate going on inside the administration, and they were trying to make their case more to the president, who was watching at home, than to the viewers.

Wallace, whose Fox News Sunday program turned 25 on Sunday, has been widely criticized by conservative viewers for some of his reporting when it comes to the way he covers the Republican party. Many point to the way he moderated one of the presidential debates last year. 

“If you are a reporter covering the White House, there is nothing better than if there are tensions inside the White House, and they are arguing it out in the public,” said Wallace.

Wallace said he thinks the format is just as important as ever, even with consumers mostly getting their news through social media throughout the day.

“It’s still an important platform for a new administration, or any administration, and the opposition, to get their points out,” said Wallace.

David Limbaugh Writes Tribute to Rush

“Though Rush is now known to the world as a consummate talker, what is not widely known is that he didn’t start that way,” Limbaugh wrote.

Rush Limbaugh’s brother penned an emotional tribute to the late radio icon reflecting on his upbringing and how it molded his passion for a medium that he single-handedly revolutionized over the course of three decades. 

David Limbaugh said Rush would turn down the volume on the television and do play-by-play for his family. He said their family bought him a Remco Caravelle, a toy that allowed him to beam his broadcast out of the home’s radios.

“Though Rush is now known to the world as a consummate talker, what is not widely known is that he didn’t start that way,” he wrote in the op-ed published in the Southeast Missourian. “He was first a listener – an information sponge, quietly inhaling knowledge at the feet of our dad.” 

Limbaugh died February 17 after a year-long battle with lung cancer. He was 70.

David Limbaugh says that background helped as his brother became the “tip of the spear” for conservatives, taking “tidal waves” of abuse from “hateful leftists” who devoted their lives to destroying him. They failed; he says.

“Rush was responsible not for the development of modern conservatism but for its explosion into the mainstream of American life,” writes David, adding, “He single-handedly resurrected AM talk radio.”
