Countryside

December 5, 2012 by Ish

As Stephen Fry once said, the definition of countryside is the murder of Piers Morgan. Now, I don’t truly wish that this towering bastion quivering bowl of journalistic integrity Jell-O any real harm, but I think Stephen Fry was right on in his terminology. Morgan embodies the worst of tabloid, talking-point journalism, married to a smug self-righteousness that just makes me want to slap him.

Which is why I so loved this recent exchange on Twitter, when Morgan launched into an incredibly ignorant screed on the Second Amendment, he was slapped down hard by Carol Roth:

Tip of the hat to Miguel, at Gun Free Zone, who adds: “It hurt all the way [over] here.”
