Piers Morgan Boringly Admits CNN Talks

Just as his flirtation with the media has reached a fever pitch, Piers Morgan has confirmed that he’s been in talks with CNN to take over for Larry King and said that “negotiations are nearly at an end.”

From warm reminiscences about long walks on the beach with Rupert Murdoch to gossip about himself while co-hosting Live with Regis and Kelly, Morgan’s non-publicity tour has taken some twists and turns. But now it’s all over, thanks to a Times interview with Brian Stelter at the Emmys red carpet last night.

Also in the interview, Morgan called out the New York Post for creating a “complete fiction” regarding his work visa. Is that any way to treat a “sort-of mentor”?
