Piers Morgan appears on Meredit Vieira; talk about Cosby, Keisha, Dershowitz


Meredith Vieira today, on her own syndicated show, interviewed Piers Morgan, who is now the lead editor(or “Editor-at-Large”) of the UK Daily Mail (story).  I want to say that I’m glad to see Piers “working” again, and miss him on CNN, even though I do like the more conservative Smerconish.
  
Morgan talked about the Bill Cosby situation, with “most of the women of the world” now accusing him of abuse.  “Innocent until proven guilty” doesn’t apply to big celebrity contracts.  
   
They talked about Keisha Knight Pulliam’s “firing” from Celebrity Apprentice and then her defense of Cosby.
  
  
He also supported Alan Dershowitz’s denials and counter-litigation in his being named in silly claims against Prince Andrew, which Dershowitz says are simply made up.  But this whole mess shows how much trouble even an accusation of involvement with underage people (heterosexual – most common – or homosexual) can cause.  Again, the practical perception is “guilty until proven innocent”.
