Mark Richardson: I hope Piers Morgan isn't replaced by someone who just spouts the rhetoric of the day

Opinion 10/03/2021

OPINION: I'm disappointed to see Piers Morgan leaving. 

I hope it's his decision.

Yes, he said something pretty questionable. 

But I hope we don't just see someone who generates interest replaced with an inoffensive presenter. 

I hope he won't be replaced with someone who will just spout and support the rhetoric of the day.

I hope they don't replace him with someone just to keep the screaming minority silent and happy, just because there's another person giving their opinion every morning.

We'll just create a very, very boring broadcasting environment.

I don't support Morgan or agree with what he said.

My point is - let's make sure we don't resort to boring broadcasters who aren't allowed opinions.
