Piers Morgan Chickens Out Of Second Debate With Alex Jones

CNN host fails to respond to challenge

Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com | January 14, 2013

CNN host Piers Morgan has seemingly chickened out of a second clash with Alex Jones on gun control, refusing to respond to a challenge by Jones that would have seen the two square off in a moderated debate.

On Wednesday, Jones challenged Morgan to another face-off that would follow classic debate rules, be overseen by an independent moderator and allow an equal amount of time for each speaker.

Despite the fact that Morgan has addressed Jones directly in a number of tweets since the challenge was issued, he has failed to respond to the challenge itself five days after it was made.

He is,

Daft cow Morgan knows when he is out matched and is a coward!

NOSHEEPLE

Alex Jones should have taken a white glove and slapped his face.

... you know those Brits are so proper when it come to a challenge. ;)

Alex vs Piers is NOT a debate

You have piers morgan who only wants to get across his "guns are evil" campaign message and then you have Alex who went berserk on piers morgan.

For the record, why would piers morgan want alex back on the show? You would think if he really wanted to show the world we are all "crazies" that he would have him back on since Alex on the first go around went nuts.

But maybe it's because Alex might actually have been calm and composed with all the updated facts about britain's violent crime, etc this 2nd time around.

Maybe piers did chicken out because maybe he believed alex might have actually come back with some real substantial information with some serious bite instead of hysteria. Lord knows you aren't going to win over support with hysteria when you have an anti-gun nut like piers acting as if he was the civilized one. When in reality, ANYONE who calls for disarming IS THE UNCIVILIZED one!

Alex jones

Alex jones serves a purpose for the liberty movement. When you want a leader who is calm, collected and can have a civil debate, you bring out people like Ron Paul and Judge Napolitano. When you need a fight, you unleash the bull dogs, Alex Jones and Nigel Farage. You may not agree with many positions of AJ and NF, but they can put up a fight and, as I said earlier, serve a purpose. Sometimes their harsh attitude and frankness is needed. IMHO

Piers doesn't Debate. He "Interviews".

At least that is what Piers says when his guests push for a reply.

Then Piers says something like "Let's debate this".

..and then the guest pushes back with a question.

..and then Piers says "This is an interview. I ask the questions".

..and on and on and on.

AJ should have made should that morganna...

understood there would be a free all-you-can-eat buffet at the end of the debate.

It might have changed his mind causing him to show up!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...

Who

wants to debate Bill O'reilly's twin? Constant yelling....doesn't let anyone get a word in edge wise.

For the record i hate piers too...but wish people here would stop talking up Alex...it's hurting us. Just go check out any of the liberal blogs and you'll see what i mean. This does not bring people into the movement.

Maybe Instead

Alex should have sat there all polite and been called "A very SSTTupid man. Maybe he should have just been passed off as another polite, but radical gun loving racist who's opinion is just to be ignored by the masses because Piers has told them so. Did Larry P get over 1.5 million people to google democide in ONE day?

skippy

Or

he could have made a logical argument (which he is capable of) and let his knowledge of the facts speak for itself....instead of acting like a lunatic and making all of us who believe in the 2nd amendment seem like complete nutcases.

I wouldn't want to debate

a lunatic like Alex Jones either. Maybe if he learned to debate calmly and rationally I would consider it, but not when he acts like he did on CNN the other day.

Alex f@cked up twice.

Would Dr. Paul ever act like that on national TV? How about the HuffPost video? Winning a debate is like a chess game. It is about communicating the right information at the right time. Checkmating your opponent.

Yelling and screaming like a crazed lunatic is not EVER going to get you ahead, long term. Alex is in a panic to get a second debate because he knows in his heart he screwed up. Period, period, period.

M

I think your misjudging the intelligence of the audience

There ain't alot of intelligence there. These people (US public) are programmed for a loud, obnoxious video game like atmosphere..How do you think shows like Jerry Springer became so popular..Alex seemed to do this with alot of facts..He seemed to be trying to beat Piers to the punch.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

True...but

Piers is often rude and condescending towards those who politely disagree with him or challenge his facts. For example, look at the treatment Larry Pratt received.

Sometimes, logic and reason simply aren't enough to get through to people, that's when emotions come into the picture. Personally, I *hate* emotional rants from any angle, but they seem to sway more people than "just the facts".

Put it this way; you and I could get in front of a crowd and tell them about, oh let's say the Patriot Act. One of us tells the truth about it, the other simply screams about evil Muslim terrorists and 9/11 over and over, and eventually has the crowd chanting "USA! USA!" like an army of automatons. The last decade has shown us that the latter is far more effective at "molding" the average American than the former.

History shows that emotional rants and repeating mindless slogans are far more effective at "turning" people than calmly explaining the facts. From that perspective, I have no issue with AJ acting the way he did. I find it quite funny, actually.

I actually find that Dr. Paul

I actually find that Dr. Paul was too weak about getting loud in this election, and he would have gotten more attention, and positive attention, if he would have gotten angry and passionate. Part of why he didn't is probably his age. Just look at how he went at it with that idiot Guardian Angel "lady" Lisa Evers/Sliwa on The Morton Downey, Jr. Show. Getting loud and pissed about our freedoms being lost has nothing to do with showing respect. I don't feel that Alex was screaming like a crazed lunatic.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Paul and Jones are 2

Paul and Jones are 2 different people with the same Ideas. As I said before. Different strokes for different folks.

No one say's he is Ron Paul

Takes more than one to make a variety. Alex is Alex does some good and bad

Alex got riled up but it

Alex got riled up but it isn't like he started screaming, spitting, slinging poo, and leaving a wake of destruction. He said what he felt he needed to say nonviolently and gave Piers Morgan a ratings boost.

I don't think Piers Morgan is really bound to another debate, but it sure is within our rights to ridicule him for not doing it.

End The Fed!

Alex even invited Morgan to come shooting with him

He called him "bud" a term of friendship, and now Morgan refuses to debate him in a moderated setting?

Video from West Virginia Citizens’ Defense League

We have in this video below a true desire to have a rational gun discussion. Discussion mentions the federalist paper 46, what's an assault weapon, projection (the idea one is better than another). He also touches on the assumption many people have and that police have a "duty" to protect us. He also shoots down the idea those who have guns are all "Rambo" characters.

I can see and hear the emotions in their responses yet ideas were understood.

Keith Morgan, not to be confused with Piers Morgan, does a great job representing all of us and defending the gun rights.

I have respect for Bray Cary for his inviting this "caliber" of person to the table for the interview.

Pass it on to others.

Have a blessed day.

He didn't chicken out of anything.

If you invited me into your house, and I tore up your furniture, insulted your wife, and made a mess everywhere, and then, when you didn't invite me back again or accept my invitation to you, I saidm

How silly of me would that be.

Funny how your comment has down-votes. I up-voted.

I post this, because the InfoWars piece is by Paul Watson.

In ~2005, during an Alex Jones' Prison Planet radio broadcast, Paul Watson, as guest, said "he found out about" Alex Jones by watching LOCAL Austin, Texas, public access tv... in England. Yeah, England. And that was pre-2005. Shortly thereafter, he and his brother Steve Watson began "working for Alex.”

Local Austin tv in England? Sounds believable!

Remember in the James Bond films Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, how the black CIA agent assists MI6 agent Bond? I suggest you read about former CIA chief James Jesus Angleton, how he had significant co-operation with British and Israeli intelligence and counterintelligence services and agents, including MI6.

Ponder that. Make connections.

Alex, American. Watsons, British. CIA, American. MI6, British.

I think that the interview was when Paul and Steve Watson were visiting Alex in Austin. They recounted how "they went for a hike up a mountain," "ran and slid down some steep embankment," etc. Other DailyPaul users might remember. Honestly, I'd be surprised if any of that actually happened.

Laurelai

Yes, he did

because he even stated that he would have a 2nd debate w/ Alex, & the funny thing is Alex actually boosted that fools ratings, & if you consider it rude what Alex did what do you make of Piers & his guests laughing when talking about killing Alex?
