Ace Tv presenter and staunch Arsenal fan Mr piers Morgan has resigned his job at CNN he just announced. Piers morgan who said he was offered a two year deal from CNN to host 41 interviews and shows said he took the decision not to accept the two year deal as he has decided to go try his hand on another job.
Morgan’s first major position in national media was as de facto editor of The Sun‘s show business column, Bizarre, under the editorship of Kelvin MacKenzie. In 1994, aged 29, he was appointed editor of News of the World by Rupert Murdoch, becoming the youngest national newspaper editor in more than half a century.He quickly gained notoriety for his invasive, thrusting style and lack of concern for celebrities’ privacy, claiming that they could not manipulate the media to further their own ends without accepting the consequences of a two-way deal.
Morgan left this post in 1995 shortly after publishing photographs of Catherine Victoria Lockwood, then wife of Charles, Earl Spencer leaving an addictive disorders clinic in Surrey. This action ran against the editors’ code of conduct,a misdemeanor for which the Press Complaints Commission upheld a complaint against Morgan. Murdoch was reported as having said that “the boy went too far and publicly distanced himself from the story. Fearful of a privacy law action if he had not criticized one of his employees, Murdoch is said to have apologized to Morgan in private.
The incident was reported to have contributed to Morgan’s decision to leave for the Daily Mirror editorship.Morgan’s autobiography The Insider states that he left the News of the World of his own choice and somewhat against owner Rupert Murdoch’s wishes when he was offered the job of Editor at the Daily Mirror.
