jordan_shares_shocking_life_storyFor a man that spent nine years editing the Daily Mirror and one editing The News of the World why on earth is he such a disaster when it comes to interviewing?

With zero stage presence and ghastly stammering questions I’m surprised the likes of Sharon Osbourne, Ulrika Jonsson and Richard Branson bothered. The show itself is OK, Richard Branson being especially interesting but Parkinson never recruited the likes of video interruptions to depict his interviewees. Instead of an indepth journalistic interview that one would come to expect from an ex-editor of a major tabliod, ‘Piers Morgan’s Life Stories’ feels a bit more like the fluffy ‘This is Your Life’ set in Chris Tarrents’s Millionaire studio. Throw in in a posh bloke with a Marbella tan and a celebrity excercising some serious PR techniques I think I would prefer to watch another re-run of ‘Half Man Half Tree’.

Too be honest I think Alan Carr would be a better candidate, at least he would get to the bloody point! Check out this post…. hitting the nail on the head?
