Piers Morgan says exiting Good Morning Britain over Meghan comments is a ‘farce’

Piers Morgan says his departure from ITV over comments about the Duchess of Sussex was a “farce” as he prepares to launch fledgling news channel TalkTV.

The channel launches Monday April 25 with shows from Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Tom Newton Dunn.

Former tabloid editor Morgan left ITV after storming off the set of Good Morning Britain after saying he didn’t believe Meghan’s claims from her interview with Oprah Winfrey. His comments sparked more than 50,000 complaints, the most in Ofcom’s history.

“I thought the whole thing was a farce and I’m pleased that indeed, as a result of the farce, we have a whole network that is now committed to preventing this type of farce from happening again,” Morgan said.

“You shouldn’t be shamed or slandered or struck out for having an opinion unless you’re really spewing hateful, bigoted stuff,” he added in an interview with Metro.co.uk.

“I don’t intend to; I’ve never done that in my airtime. I want to be a broad church for every kind of point of view.”

News UK’s latest venture, TalkTV, will be broadcast on linear TV platforms as well as online services such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and YouTube.

The show will utilize News UK’s journalists, including The Times political team, The Sun’s showbiz desk and talkSPORT correspondents.

Morgan will appear on his global show Uncensored on April 25 at 8pm, broadcast from studio facilities in Ealing, west London.
