PIERS MORGAN UPDATE: WaPo: Yeah, Morgan got pwned last night. “Eric Wemple at the Washington Post confirms that Shapiro wasn’t intransigent — he was just a lot smarter than Morgan and beat him at his own game.”

Shapiro, you magnificent bastard. I read your book!

Plus: “None of this should be surprising, coming as it does from a disgraced former tabloid editor and ex-talent show judge. Indeed, a quick look at Morgan’s oeuvre, which includes stints at the News of the World, which was shuttered during the phone hacking scandal, and the Daily Mirror, from which he was fired for publishing fake photos of British soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners, and one understands that Morgan is incapable of nuance.”

UPDATE: Jim Treacher: Piers Morgan loses gun-control debate to Ben Shapiro.
