Sharon Osbourne launched a passionate defense of fellow British talk show host Piers Morgan on Wednesday, asking her co-hosts on The Talk to give examples of when he was racist.

The British talk show host,  a former presenter on CNN and Daily Mail editor, was strongly critical of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to speak to Oprah Winfrey, in an interview that aired on Sunday night in the U.S.

On Monday in the U.K.  Piers accused Meghan and Harry of damaging the royal family and seeking publicity on their own terms – without accepting the responsibility and scrutiny that come with their position.

The Talk on CBS

He was the editor-at-large, “MailOnline.com [2014].
He is of Irish, Scottish, English, and 1/32 Portuguese, ancestry.
As editor of the “Daily Mirror”, he instigated a campaign against Ian Hislop, the editor of “Private Eye” and one of his most vociferous and public critics. Starting in 2002, this campaign took many months and managed to come up with nothing of a defamatory nature against Hislop whatsoever. Hislop, in turn, took great delight in ridiculing all Morgan’s efforts both on TV and in print, revealing, for example, that one of Morgan’s reporters had interviewed the Anglican vicar in his village and asked him to reveal any dirty secrets Hislop had admitted to “during Confession” – which is, of course, a rite of the Roman Catholic Church, not the Anglican one, and which is, in any case, secret. The worst Morgan could come up with was a photograph of Hislop with a rough beard – although, as the photo also revealed Hislop’s right arm to be in a sling, it was easy to understand why he had been unable to shave properly. After more than a year, Morgan was forced to stop his inquiries, and he was sacked as “Mirror” editor soon afterwards.
Introduced Heather Mills to husband-to-be Paul McCartney at a charity event in 1999.
When a DNA profile was compiled for Morgan on his UK TV show Good Morning Britain (2014), it was revealed that he is 91% Irish/Scottish/Welsh, 6.5% Eastern European, 1.6% West Asian and 0.8% Middle Eastern. [October 2017]
On 24 August 1981, he attended the Greenbelt Arts And Music Festival, where he saw a then little-known Irish band called U2 perform.
His hero is the British aristocrat, imperialist, and former Conservative Party leader and Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
There is some confusion as to his real name. As late as June of 2019, he has claimed that his real name is Piers Pughe-Morgan.
In the matter of his real surname, it appears that his father’s name was O’Meara, but he died before his son was a year old. The mother then married a Mr. Pughe-Morgan and Piers Morgan took the latter’s double-barreled surname, later shortening it for professional purposes.
