    I will say that Savage's fortunes have improved with him moving from #13 three years ago to #5 now.

    And Piers Morgan couldn't hold a candle to anybody on that list which is why he is out of a job.
    Piers uses large words (more than 3 syllables) and compound sentences, w/appositives, so konservatives can't understand him.

    Piers Morgan could take lessons.
    He's willing to take unpopular positions, though (he's against raising the minimum wage). I've noticed his asides seem to be becoming more frequent.

    Yet he fails to hold an audience.

    I haven't caught his program more than a few times so don't qualify as a regular listener. But the position he takes seem to be grounded in practical economics. In other words, he provides a nonpartisan rationale.

    Piers doesn't do that. His "I'm smart and all who don't agree with me are stupid, flawed, or whatever" style is really off putting to most.

    Because he can spell, read and write. To konservatives, those things are a sin. Only way to hold an audience in the US is to say childish. stupid things all day long, i. e.
