Piers Morgan To Newt Gingrich: Is Your ‘Bitterness’ Toward The Media A Result Of Your Scandals?

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has seen his presidential campaign receive something of a shot in the arm after the fall from grace of Rick Perry and the current Herman Cain mess, but that doesn’t mean he can avoid questions about the latter yet. On Piers Morgan Tonight, the host asked the candidate to comment on the matter, and he took the opportunity to attack the media for its thirst for “gossip and destruction,” which led to Piers Morgan asking whether that wasn’t just residual “bitterness” from his own scandals talking.


“Clearly, Herman has to answer the allegations,” Gingrich told Morgan, adding that he was “very surprised” but wouldn’t speak to whether he believes the claims either way. He also noted that Cain was already extremely successful by getting to be a frontrunner, “a pretty amazing achievement for someone who had never run for President before.” After answering those questions, Gingrich accused Morgan of being “more fascinated by this than I am,” to which Morgan replied in that he was, very much so, as Cain was “the non-politician” but had been “sucked into the traditional political system.”


He has, Gingrich agreed, “because the American news media is passionately committed to gossip and destruction.” Morgan wondered, then whether Gingrich spoke “as somebody… who has been through a few scrapes yourself over the years of a personal nature?” Morgan attempted to ask about Gingrich’s “bitterness” but was curtly cut off, calling it awareness rather than bitterness.
