CNN’s Quest For Ratings

The Washington Post’s Eric Wemple called the booking of the controversial Alex Jones on the Piers Morgan show “a brilliant booking move.

How so? Morgan and CNN took the very real issue of guns, the 2nd Amendment, and gun control and turned it into a circus to spike ratings. Rather than Alex Jones, maybe Morgan should book Rahm Emanuel and ask him why gun control in Chicago has failed? Maybe Morgan should book someone from the NYPD to defend how stop-and-frisk reduces gun crime?

But, no. Morgan, who is undoubtedly passionate about this issue, is more passionate about his ratings.

And ICYMI, do check out the video of Bob Costa over on the homepage saying it was ridiculous to have a 9/11 truther on CNN to talk guns.
