Piers Morgan

Shooting Straight
  • Shooting Straight

  • Despite many wanting him to fail, Piers Morgan took over from US TV legend Larry King at CNN in 2010 and went on to cover some of the most shocking news events in recent US history, such as the killing of Osama bin Laden, the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy and horrific shooting rampages including the Newtown school massacre.

    In Shooting Straight Piers shares the diaries that he kept in this rollercoaster period of his life.

    Thrown right into the maelstrom of the US media, Piers finds himself rubbing shoulders with everyone from Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen to the US President himself. Not to mention, Oprah, Rod Stewart, Meryl Streep, Woody Allen, Dustin Hoffman, Janet Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand, Goldie Hawn, the Dalai Lama and Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad…

    As Piers gets more and more drawn into commenting on American culture, one issue – gun control – provokes the most incredible and heart-rending response of all, dividing the country dramatically. And, as usual, Piers is in the thick of it.

Piers Morgan worked as a gossip columnist for the Sun before going on to edit the News of the World and then the Daily Mirror, until he was sacked in 2004 when he published photos of British soldiers apparently abusing Iraqi prisoners of war. He has since presented a number of TV shows - including The Dark Side of Fame, You Can't Fire Me, I'm Famous for BBC1 - and written for the Mail on Sunday and GQ. He shot to fame in the US as a judge on the top-rated show America's Got Talent and wowed American audiences on Celebrity Apprentice. He is also a judge on the hit UK series, Britain's Got Talent. Most recently, he presented the documentary travelogue series Piers On..., and hosted the chat show Piers Morgan's Life Stories on ITV1.
