Piers Morgan is apparently quite the Megyn Kelly fan. Who knew?!
Back before he was canned by CNN, Morgan reportedly lobbied the network to replace Anderson Cooper with Kelly. In a column for The Hollywood Reporter, Morgan said that when he was hosting the 9 p.m. ET slot at CNN, he approached his boss, Jeff Zucker, about the idea. Morgan revealed:
“I suggested to Jeff that Megyn Kelly would be a perfect primetime star for CNN — young, beautiful, slick, razor smart, bursting with opinions, humor and authority. I was convinced she’d give me a much better [9 p.m.] lead-in than Anderson Cooper, who for all his qualities as a reporter is stiff in a studio and gets annihilated in the ratings every night by [Fox News’s Bill] O’Reilly. Jeff nodded and replied, ‘I tried to get her.’ Days later, it was announced Megyn was moving to Fox News primetime, where she’s been a huge hit.”
Oh snap! Gun-grabbing liberal Piers Morgan just sang the praises of two Fox News anchors in the same breath! Has Hell frozen over? Are pigs flying??
We can’t really blame Piers Morgan for being a closet Kelly lover. She is pretty awesome. Let us know what you think of his revelation in the comments section!
