Piers Morgan Biography: A Controversial, but Successful, Journalism Career

September 6, 2019


At the age of seventeen he had a master plan
for becoming the best known journalist in Britain. He’s been in the midst of media scandals,
he’s interviewed some of the most famous celebrities and most powerful politicians
in the world, and he’s judged the talents of hundreds of common folks. Arrogant, ambitious, and shameless…. so
who is this media man? None other than Piers Morgan, of course… Early Life Piers Morgan was born in Sussex, England in
1965 to an Irish dentist who died when Morgan was only two years old. At birth, Morgan was named Piers Stefan O’Meara,
but Morgan’s mother remarried after his father’s death, and Morgan adopted the surname
Pugh-Morgan. Morgan and his stepfather were close, and
Morgan, having never really known his birth-father, calls him ‘dad.’ His parents were middle-class English, running
a pub and supporting Margaret Thatcher. When Morgan was 13, the family could no longer
afford to send him to private school so he had to leave behind the classmates he knew. At his new school he was picked on and in
true schoolboy style the ‘Pugh’ in his name was altered to ‘Puke.’ Morgan dropped the Pugh from his name later
on, a move some have attributed to a desire to separate from his middle class roots, but
that Morgan himself said was just because Pugh-Morgan was too long for a byline. As a child, Morgan showed an early affinity
for the media. As early as age seven he would sit at the
table, devouring the daily newspapers, reading the headlines and discussing the day’s events
with his parents. By the time he was a teenager, he was writing
news articles – he even sold a piece to the Mid Sussex Times and then to Cricket Magazine
at the age of 14. “It gave me the real taste of the excitement
of a byline,” he said of the sale. It’s not too much of a surprise, then, that
a few years later when the time to consider a career rolled around, Morgan had it set
in his mind that he would become the most famous media personality in Britain. He developed a master plan, and opted not
to take up an offer to attend Warwick University to study History. That would have kept his master plan on hold
for a few years while he completed his education. So instead, he went directly to Harlow College
and dived into the formal study of journalism as soon as he could. Print Media Career Morgan’s first formal journalism gig was
at the South London News, and then he joined The Sun to write the gossip column entitled
“Bizarre.” As The Guardian put it, Morgan spent his years
at The Sun “…grinning inanely while posing next to a succession of personalities.” Morgan wouldn’t disagree with The Guardian’s
characterization of his initial years in media, as he himself told the BBC he made a point
of putting himself in the middle of stories, posing for pictures with celebrities, and
generally getting his name and face out there for all of Britain to see. The tactic worked. By 1994, at the age of only 29, Morgan secured
his place in British media history when Rupert Murdoch named him as editor of News of the
World. Piers Morgan was the youngest editor of ever
of News of the World, and the youngest editor of a paper in Britain in five decades. The News of the World had the largest circulation
of any paper in the country at the time, and the editorship gave Morgan a platform in which
to put his hard-charging, oft-controversial journalistic methods on display for a huge
population of readers. He even helped breach the previously untouchable
barricade of the royal family. By the summer of 1994, Princess Diana and
Prince Charles’ marriage was well on its way to its official end, and Morgan and News
of the World weren’t going to miss out on the opportunity to publish on potentially
juicy royal scandals. Morgan had caught wind that James Hewitt,
an officer in the British military, wanted to spill the beans about his affair with Princess
Diana. With no fear of potential repercussion or
for the longheld level of dignity with which the royals had been treated, Morgan reached
out to Hewitt and arranged to interview him for a story. He and his associate even bugged the hotel
room where the interview took place, ensuring they would have proof of everything that was
said. Then, that fall, a book about Prince Charles
and his private life was set to be published. While News of the World didn’t have any
excerpts, The Sunday Times did. Morgan wasn’t ready to give up a scoop to
another paper, nor was he willing to take ‘no’ as an answer when he was denied access
to information from The Sunday Times. Instead, he directed Rebekah Brooks who had
also helped out on the hotel interview, to disguise herself, sneak into The Sunday Times
offices, grab a copy, and get it back the News of the World as quickly as possible. She succeeded, and Morgan and News of the
World was able to publish huge news about the Diana and Charles drama for the world
to see, well before every other paper except The Sunday Times. If he wanted to be a famous journalist, why
did Morgan settle for running gossipy relationship stories? Well, to him, everything was news. “There is a type of snobbish, pompous journalist
who thinks that the only news that has any validity is war, famine, pestilence or politics. I don’t come from that school.” This egalitarian attitude allowed Morgan to
quickly prove his mettle and his willingness to do whatever it took to be successful in
breaking stories. But he only lasted at News of the World for
a bit over a year. Though Morgan has said that he left the publication
of his own accord, the timing of his exit coincided with the publication of a photo
of Princess Diana’s sister-in-law leaving an addiction treatment clinic, the publication
of which even Rupert Murdoch said went too far. In 1995, shortly after the photo ran, Morgan
moved on to head up The Mirror, another paper owned by Rupert Murdoch. Here, his tenure lasted much longer than it
did at News of the World. The number of controversial stories he was
involved in was correspondingly larger, and as a result his profile continued to rise
– even outside of Britain. It only took a year before Morgan found himself
embroiled in his first major controversy at The Mirror. The day before England was set to play Germany
in the Euro ‘96 football championships, The Mirror ran a headline and photo on its
front page that many did not find amusing. Above a doctored image of two English players
wearing World War II helmets was the headline “ACHTUNG! SURRENDER! For you Fritz, ze Euro 96 Championship is
over.” Next to it was a letter written by Morgan
himself in the style of Neville Chamberlain. Reportedly, Morgan also planned a publicity
stunt that involved driving a tank to the German embassy. In the ensuing uproar about the headline,
that stunt was cancelled. Suddenly, Morgan found himself in a position
his hard-charging personality didn’t seem suited for – apologizing. There were fears the kind of attitude promoted
by the headline may incite acts of violence during the games. Though Morgan was apologizing, he was right
where he wanted to be – at the center of attention. In 2000, though, the attention turned from
an editorial decision he had made to a personal financial scandal. A competing newspaper published a story alleging
that Morgan bought 20,000 pounds worth of stock in a computer company – and that he
made the purchase just before The Mirror ran a piece naming the stock as a good buy. An inquiry began, and it was decided that
while Morgan had breached an ethical code of conduct, he could keep his job. Other Mirror employees weren’t so lucky
– the columnists who wrote on stock buys lost their jobs, and it was another four years
before Morgan was cleared of wrongdoing. However, it did later come out that he bought
additional stock under his wife’s name – another 70,000 pounds worth. By the time that revelation came about, Morgan
was already on the skids at The Mirror. As editor, he had been leading the charge
against the Iraq War in the British press, loudly criticizing then Prime Minister Tony
Blair for his support of the war. Among the stories published on the war under
Morgan’s leadership was a piece that included a photo of British soldiers abusing Iraqi
prisoners. As recently as a 2016 BBC interview, Morgan
defended the photos, saying they were real and that the British government had a “vested
interest in getting rid of me, their biggest thorn in the side about the war.” But The Mirror didn’t defend them strongly
in the wake of the allegations they were fake…the British people instead got a paper with a
large headline that stated “Sorry…we were hoaxed.” And the man who had okayed the publication
of the photos was subsequently out of a job. When Morgan’s firing was announced, staff
members at the paper were in tears. After nearly a decade, Piers Morgan’s reign
at The Daily Mirror was over. TV Career True to form, though, he didn’t slink away
into the night. Instead he became a regular feature on people’s
TV screens. Though he had already been appearing on TV
before leaving the newspaper business, Morgan stepped up his involvement with broadcast
media after his firing. One of the first offers Morgan received for
a regular TV gig was via a text message from Simon Cowell. And in 2006, America welcomed Morgan into
their homes as he served as a judge on America’s Got Talent. He also judged Britain’s Got Talent, and
appeared on then-just-a-mogul Donald Trump’s reality show The Celebrity Apprentice. Morgan won his season of The Celebrity Apprentice,
and in the process became close friends with now-President Donald Trump. Morgan said all along he believed Trump would
be President, and has been outspoken about his dislike for the protests that erupted
after Trump’s election. Morgan’s diatribes on the subject have even
led celebrities to decline interviews with him. But Morgan knew what opening his mouth could
lead to. He’s no stranger to the ins and outs of
the American political and media institutions – he served as the host of a primetime show
on CNN for several years, after all. When Larry King announced his retirement in
2010, Morgan was named as the replacement for the longtime, iconic American host. The show started strong, with Morgan able
to book some of the biggest names in media and politics for interviews. Oprah, Rudy Guiliani, Ricky Gervais, Condoleeza
Rice, and even two of the Kardashian sisters… And he made just as many headlines for the
interviews he didn’t do. Madonna was deemed too old to appear on his
show and banned from ever being a guest. But all the initial hype wore off quickly. Morgan had a different style from King, and
he was a British person taking over an American news and interview show. Ultimately, he only lasted three years in
the host’s chair, as poor ratings doomed him to failure. He’s attributed the show’s failure to
a clash of cultures, citing such factors as his own outspoken opposition to guns as one
such example of cultural differences that just couldn’t be bridged. The CNN show wasn’t Morgan’s only project
during that time period. He was also hosting ‘Life Stories’ for
ITV, whose subjects were as diverse as Sharon Osborne and the Prime Minister. Now, he’s the permanent co-host for Good
Morning Britain where he keeps himself in the spotlight, most recently sparring with
a gender fluid guest over the validity of gender fluidity. In his classic blunt style, Morgan asked the
21-year-old guest: “’If you can identify as who the hell you like can I literally look
at myself and say…I’m an elephant today.” Phone Hacking Scandals Amidst his rise to television stardom, Morgan
had to contend with accusations dating back to his newspaper days. In 2005, News of the World – which, remember,
Morgan headed up for a year – published a story about Prince Harry injuring himself. The only way they could have gotten the details
for that story claimed royal officials, was if they had hacked personal voicemails. Thus set off a series of events that rocked
the British media, political, and celebrity world. Arrests were made, investigations were done,
lawsuits were filed, and it takes six years before some actual action is taken to address
the phone hacking scandal. Rupert Murdoch issues apologies for phone
hacking in print in the form of a full page ad in the last issue published of News of
the World. Rebekah Brooks – the same Rebekah who Morgan
had break into the Sunday Times office – resigned as CEO of News International. She’s then arrested, though quickly released
on bail. The FBI opened an investigation into News
of the World and allegations they were hacking into the phones of 9/11 victims. London’s police department was investigated
for corruption. Needless to say, the scandal enveloped England,
and the world was paying attention. Though Morgan had been out of the newspaper
world for some time, he was not immune to being questioned about the scandal. In fact he had to answer questions regarding
the voicemails of one of England’s most famous personas…Sir Paul McCartney. McCartney’s ex-wife, Heather Mills had alleged
that her voicemails had been listened to after she and McCartney had a fight in 2001. A reporter who called her just seemed to know
too much, and Mills maintained that she hadn’t shared the voicemails with anyone, and that
she had deleted all of them. The only way anyone could know as much as
that reporter did was if he himself had hacked and listened to the voicemails, or talked
to someone who had. Morgan had mentioned in 2006 that he had heard
a message from McCartney to Mills, and as a result he was called to testify in the 2011
inquiry into phone hacking. Morgan wouldn’t reveal how he’d come to
hear the message, and he also maintained that he never authorized the hacking of voicemails
at News of the World or the Daily Mirror. The head of the hacking inquiry, Lord Justice
Leveson, called Morgan’s testimony that he didn’t know about phone hacking to be
“utterly unpersuasive,” securing Morgan’s place in the scandal as undecided, at best. And, despite his denials of direct involvement
in hacking, Morgan was interviewed by the police about the hacking in both 2013 and
2015. Other Scandal/Controversy Phone hacking, incendiary headlines, taping
interviews about the royals…you might think that would be enough for any one person to
face in the course of a media career. But Piers Morgan has been embroiled in personal
controversy with other celebrities. One much-publicized drama stemmed from an
action Morgan took as editor of The Daily Mirror … publishing photos of “Top Gear”
host Jeremy Clarkson with a woman who was not his wife. Clarkson, understandably so, was perturbed
by these photos being put out there for all the world to see. So he hurled a glass of water in Morgan’s
face. That might not seem out of place in your average
bar, but onboard the last flight of the Concorde the altercation stood out. And the fact it was between two highly visible
members of the British media? Even better. A feud between the two men had officially
started. The feud literally came to blows in 2004 when
Clarkson punched Morgan in the head at the National Press Awards. Clarkson broke a finger, Morgan gained a scar,
and the celebrity gossip columnists gained a new story. Though the feud lingered for years, the two
men were able to bond over drinks in 2015 and the feud ended. At the time, Clarkson was going through a
divorce and confided about his troubles to Morgan who was able to empathize: “I sensed that Jeremy’s just like pretty
much every other 50-something in life; angst-ridden from damaged relationships, grieving loved
ones, irritated by work-related issues, and battling inner demons.” Personal Life By the time he entered his 50s, Morgan was
acquainted with many of the same trials and tribulations of life he assumed Clarkson had
dealt with. His own marriage fell apart by the mid-2000s,
and he and his first wife Marion Shalloe officially divorced in 2008 after 27 years of marriage. Their marriage had produced three sons, and
Morgan makes a point of staying in close contact with his children. In fact, amidst all the demands on his time
Morgan has made a point of speaking to his children every day. After his divorce, Morgan began dating Celia
Walden, a fellow journalist. The couple married in 2010, and a year later
had a daughter. Though both are British, they now reside primarily
in New York. Walden often shares details of their married
life in her columns, and Morgan even joins in some of the time. The two even teamed up to write a column about
a trip to Paris, in which Morgan steps back from his desire to be known by everyone: “Paris has always been one of my favourite
cities, because the French neither know who I am, nor care. This means I can behave in a wildly reckless
manner and maintain a reasonable confidence that the shameful images will never appear
on the cover of the National Enquirer.” Conclusion Though he claims he doesn’t want his own
personal shame shared in the National Enquirer, Morgan has made a career out of sharing the
intimate details of other people’s lives. He’s never been shy about sharing his political
opinions – or any opinions. He’s made a name for himself, made a few
enemies along the way, and shows absolutely no sign of stepping out of the spotlight anytime
soon. From middle class Sussex to the TV sets of
people around the world, Piers Morgan has lived out the plan he wrote at the age of
17. And he’s still got plenty of career left
to go. What will the world see next from Piers Morgan? Well, whatever it is, when it happens we’ll
surely see it in the news.

    I agree with a lot of Morgan's views. I respect that he questions political correctness and identity politics and stood up to the extremists of the gun lobby (fanatics like Ted Nugent for instance) during his time in the US.

    But his arrogance- constantly interrupting guests, is insufferable. On more than one occasion he has also shown profound hypocrisy- once complaining about his right to privacy when he had been a tabloid editor! Lambasting Tommy Robinson for 'insulting the Koran' when he himself has criticised Islamist doctrine.

    Still, he says things that too few other public figures in the UK are prepared to say.

    So I really can't make my mind up on Piers Morgan.

    Piers Morgan may have been good for the United Kingdom but he was definitely wrong about his views on Gun Control!! I am of Native American background and I have a number of liberal views but Piers Morgan had NO right whatsoever to come into the United States and push for Gun Control!! As an American I resented a foreigner who is not even a United States citizen coming here to America and telling us we have to give up our firearms!! This also is not just a problem with Piers Morgan but with many other foreign press as well; most notably "Haaretz"of Israel and the "Times of Israel" calling for stricter gun control legislation!! You foreigners have no right to tell us how to run our nation or tell us what to do!! We had a revolution about this as another even more destructive Civil War that tore our nation apart!!
    You Europeans, Asians, Africans and South Americans need to wake up a realize that criminals will always be able to get firearms no matter what!!

    On my closing note yes us Native Americans do know what happens when we turn in our firearms and trust the Federal Government!!

    The white man speaks with a forked tongue!!
