Morgan, 39, one of the most controversial tabloid editors of recent times, was dismissed after an afternoon-long board meeting at the Mirror’s tower-block headquarters in Canary Wharf, east London.

      I am not convinced he did not do it intentionally. Because I really doubt that if he had done it in good faith that he would have been canned. Simple logic will tell you that he did something on the lines of a Dan Rather.

      You hammer a guy for trying to defend the 2nd amendment, and then give this POS the benefit of the doubt?

        I thoroughly agree with you,BC! That was a horrendous thing he did and I believe intentionally. I believe it shows his lack of character which 8 years later has shown exactly who and what he is. Let him go back from whence he came and quit judging Americans for their God-given rights which he has no right judging those rights since he;s not even an Anerican!
