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.
