I edited the Bf88’s post about Piers Morgan’s smart-@$$ comment, and the link now works. It has been updated a couple of times, and this update sums up that situation pretty well:
***UPDATE II: In follow-up tweets, Morgan hasn’t been any clearer in explaining how quoting him constitutes a smear. I will say, there’s no reason not to believe him when he says his tweet was sarcasm. I’ll let others decide if being flippant and sarcastic about Sandy Hook is appropriate.
Having seen Morgan on a couple of shows - not on CNN - it is entirely consistent Morgan’s character that his comment was scarcastic. That was my first reaction when I heard of the comment. I also think it was inappropriate (as would, IMO, an unsupported claim that he was glad for a pretext to push gun control).
