Earlier this week, British broadcaster Piers Morgan said that he was giving up his live, daily, hour-long evening news show on TalkTV for YouTube. “I’ve just decided that I no longer want to create my show for linear television — I just want to go full digital globally,” adding that he did not want to be placed in an “unnecessary straitjacket”. But new reporting by Guido Fawkes puts Morgan’s departure in a slightly different light. “Don’t believe the spin,” Guido writes. “TalkTV is being pared back, the single biggest budget line item was Piers and he wasn’t delivering an audience to match his ego”. Either way, YouTube is probably a more natural domain for some of Piers’ very online interviews.
