    How do you select interviewees?

    What guests are you particularly interested in for Piers Morgan Tonight?

    What are your thoughts about succeeding Larry King on CNN?

    Piers, are most of your interviews going to be pre-recorded or are you going to be doing some, most or all of them live?

    Piers, how will you handle a guest, especially a politician who completely ignores the question at hand and delivers a stock answer – will you press the question? How can you keep them from getting away with not addressing the answer at hand?

    OK heres the deal...when I first heard you were taking over CNN, I thought thats kinda strange. Isn't he a judge from a talent contest that discovered Susan Boyle? Then I have been reading about you and watching you with Anderson....and I thought this guy is perfect! You have karisma, which makes you funny and sexy...I'm sure you have heard that before.Piers your fantastic!!!! Its just what CNN needed...sorry Larry.....

    Mr. Morgan:
    What is going to make you stand out from every other "talk show/interviewer host" format? (and please do let your ego talk here)

    Truly, what do you have to offer that hasn't been done before?
    Isn't this just more spin on the same subjects we can find on every channel in some format or another on the airwaves?

    Bottom line: Why should I tune in?

    Dear Mr Morgan,

    I wonder why no one for the 3 days said or mentioned anything in the news about our base in Japan located in Okinawa, there are people who live there too, Americans and Japanese. Am I missing something?

    Thanks

    Piers

    When we empower and State or potentate to over ride our Constitution and its' laws we not only weaken our Government, we weaken our morals, vaules , tradtitions and customs. I say that Hawaii is above and seperate or outside our laws is in and of itself more insane than any comments made by Birthers, it borders on Sedition. I am neither for nor against Birthers. Article VI section 2, Supremacy clause is where I stand. The Federal Government is the Supreme law of the land. This is the State of Hawaii's Department of Healths' laws. HRS §338-18(b).
    Do you support or beleive when proper Authorities ask to see the Birth certificate of any Public person with proper legal authority that the state Official has the right to say; " I seen it. Take my word for it." Again, I am not for or against birthers, just sedition.
