I’m sure a lot of people have seen this already, but just in case you haven’t it’s definitely worth the watch. Though Chelsea Handler is pretty sassy throughout the entire video, about two minutes in she takes it upon herself to tell Piers Morgan exactly why his show is coming to an end: he doesn’t pay enough attention to his guests.
After watching this video I must say that in the battle of wits, it’s:
That being said, are we truly surprised that Piers Morgan is a mediocre interviewer? Taking Larry King’s place is a canyon-leap from judging America’s Got Talent. Also, that this interview is getting so much attention, despite everything going on in New York, Ukraine and the Malaysian airline, is pretty indicative of what the media prioritizes. On the other hand, if we weren’t so interested then this wouldn’t have made so many front pages.
I’m also interested in seeing how this might eventually implicate Chelsea Handler. Handler has been fighting off critics her entire career for her brash honesty. Being called a bitch isn’t news to her. But what if a man went on Morgan’s show and did the same thing? Would it be funny, or harsh? For Chelsea it will likely be portrayed as the latter.
