Piers Morgan Calls for Ferguson Protesters to Be Time's 'Person of the Year' (NewsBusters)
Appearing on Monday's NBC Today, ex-CNN host Piers Morgan called on Time magazine to name the Ferguson protesters as the publication's "Person of the Year" for 2014: "If you ask me what has been the single biggest issue facing Americans right now in this country, it is the whole issue surrounding what happened there....Everyone's got to come together and say we are simply better than this."
Earlier in the segment, co-host Matt Lauer brought up the deaths of both Michael Brown and Eric Garner in New York City, prompting Morgan to proclaim: "I feel very concerned about that whole process, as many people do. Look, you cannot have a situation where you have two unarmed people in America who are basically killed by police officers and the police officers concerned are simply not held to account....these guys haven't even been cross-examined and I find that an unfathomable thing."
