Piers Morgan is so proud of his ‘Thunderbirds’ interview with Mick Lynch it’s sad
Spare a thought – only kidding – for Piers Morgan whose big TV comeback on Rupert Murdoch’s Talk TV hasn’t been the viral sensation he was presumably hoping for.
But finally Morgan got an interview to go viral with his bizarre chat with rail union boss Mick Lynch, focussed in large part on why he has a Thunderbirds puppet for his picture on Facebook.
“Do you think I look like the most evil person in the world, Piers?”

Now Morgan has been celebrating the fact he finally trended, suggesting he’d annoyed and outraged ‘all the right people’.
“When I launched this show, the whole premise was to annoy all the right people – and today I feel my work is almost done.”

Except he didn’t annoy or outrage anyone. He just bemused them. And it’s all starting to feel a bit … sad.
And these 9 responses said it best.
Nobody is annoyed by this

This is the new post-Mick Lynch discourse isn't it? Someone/all sentient creatures thinks you're a twerp, & you say they're "outraged". No, they think you're a twerp. pic.twitter.com/wwZpTVT65j

P1ers [email protected] celebrating everyone jeering at his preposterous Mick Lynch interview because it means everyone is talking about his show at last like me celebrating being the talk of the town for liquid-pooping at a wedding while the bride came down the aisle.

And yet all you’ve done is hang on the coat tails of Mick Lynch by being ridiculous. It’s hilarious 😂😂

Pretty sad with what’s going on the best you can do is talk about someone’s Facebook picture.

A serious point here.
Level of journalism in the UK as exampled here by @piersmorgan is absolutely woeful.
Journalism used to be an honourable profession, where people took pride in holding power to account.
If I was a journalist I'd be ashamed at what my profession has become. https://t.co/MZsO3OpM79
