Piers Morgan hates Slate. He thinks we’re cobblers (whatever that means) and “s**t” (we understand that one). At least that was his response to a pair of critical stories we’ve run in the past few weeks, the most recent one being David Weigel’s wonderful evisceration of Morgan’s now cancelled CNN show (read it if you haven’t yet).
The thing of it is, though, Morgan appears to be a devoted Slate reader. At least according to his Twitter account, he is. In the past 18 months, Morgan has tweeted approvingly of Slate coverage at least a dozen times, including as recently as 11 days ago. Here for your consideration—and to thank Piers for all of the love over the years—are those tweets.
UPDATE: 3,293 people killed by guns in America since Sandy Hook. (via @Slate )— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) April 4, 2013
@Slate why are you not updating the gun tally - not changed since March 28?— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) April 17, 2013
@Slate it was very effective when you did it daily, please keep doing that if you can. Been no update for 2 weeks, looks old.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) April 17, 2013
