Piers Morgan Accused of Ambushing Pro-Gun Guests

Expert John Lott says the talking head is dishonest in his selection of guests and presentation of issues


John Lott, the pro-gun advocate and author of More Guns, Less Crime, emails to take issue with Piers Morgan's decision to let conspiracy theorist Alex Jones address the gun debate on his program.

"Morgan obviously puts a lot of thought into ambushing his guests before they appear on his show, and I am sure as you note in a quote that he picked Alex Jones precisely because Morgan expected and wanted the reaction that he received," Lott told POLITICO.
