On the BBC, an interviewer told Larry King, "You've been incredibly kind about Piers Morgan. I can give you this opportunity to be horrible about him, if you want." King laughed, said no, called Morgan a "fine broadcaster," and then proceeded to undermine him anyway.
"I think one of the problems they did was oversell it. He was going to be dangerous. He was going to be water-cooler talk. Wait til you see me — I'm different. He's good. He's not dangerous. *Snort.*"
A little less giggling the next time you're facing down Oprah might help.
