Now that CNN showed Piers Morgan to an elevator and pointed him north, his abused staffers are coming forward to tell the story of what it was like working for a man who was a legend in his own mind.
You’ll be shocked to hear that working with Piers Morgan was almost as much fun as working with Kim Jong Il.
His own co-workers are glad he’s getting the boot. Staffers at “Piers Morgan Live” are actually relieved that CNN has canceled the show, sources tell Confidenti@l.
“He was always such an a—— to people working for him,” one insider says of the bombastic Brit.
“The makeup girls suffered the worst — he was rude and belligerent,” says our source. “The general feeling is Morgan didn’t show any respect to anyone working under him — the people who were trying to make him look good.”
You can’t help but feel sorry for the makeup girls who had to spend two hours a day trying to get his face to match a normal shade.
I bet some of them wished for an assault rifle every time he sat down in the chair.
Morgan was questioned in November in London by cops investigating phone hacking, but a CNN spokeswoman said that interview was not a factor in his show being canned.
Yes it wasn’t his criminal activity, it was his personality.
Meanwhile over at MSNBC staffers have few good things to say about fellow liberal blowhard Alec Baldwin.
“What a moron. Baldwin barely knows anyone at MSNBC, especially those that he bashed in his article,” one well-placed insider tells us. “Maybe it was a homework assignment from his anger-management class. I guess they don’t call him the Bloviator for nothing.”
