"There is palpable tension between Morgan and Anderson Cooper, according to people who work with them."
Here's the first few paragraphs of the article by Sarah Ellison, for the entire read follow the link:
Piers Morgan, testifying before the Leveson Inquiry in London late last year, had just withstood two hours of uncomfortable questioning about phone hacking—a practice the 46-year-old tabloid editor–cum–TV star described in the first of his three memoirs as the “little trick” of listening illicitly to other people’s voice mails. When the questions were over and he was free to go, Morgan couldn’t resist a closing statement, a last word. He told the presiding judge, Lord Justice Leveson, who has been leading the government-ordered inquiry into the unethical and often criminal behavior of Britain’s press, that he felt “like a rock star having an album brought out from his back catalogue of all his worst-ever hits.”
To those who know him, it was predictable that Morgan would liken himself to a rock star, even after he had been made to seem like the audio version of a Peeping Tom. Morgan has made his career through a combination of fawning over and feuding with celebrities of all stripes. Judging from a recent tour of his home turf, London journalists view him either with a certain admiration (for his sheer ability to survive and for his acknowledged solicitude as a boss) or, more commonly, complete disdain (for his journalistic methods, his extravagant self-promotion, and his apparent lack of redeeming social purpose). “Every once in a while, one of us writes a story we hope will get him fired from CNN,” a British editor told me recently. So far, the efforts have come to naught, and Morgan remains the host of Piers Morgan Tonight—the troubled successor to Larry King Live—which has spent more than a year and a half attempting to establish itself as the prime-time show on the cable network, itself in a state of bewildered anarchy.
