Larry King Says CNN 'Oversold' Piers MorganS

Former CNN celebrity profiler Larry King was interviewed by BBC Radio 4, and he had a few things to say about his replacement at CNN, Piers Morgan! King started out with this: "I don't want to be horrible about him, I think he's a fine broadcaster" — which roughly translates to "this guy is an obnoxious prick, but he's got a good television voice, I guess." King goes on about the guy he once said he didn't know:

"He's good but not that dangerous. I think they might have been better off starting quietly and that's not Piers' fault, or maybe it is, I'm not inside anymore ... He's not bad. He asks good questions, maybe he interrupts a little too much. I think he may have been oversold."

Look at the above picture, Larry King — that is a dangerous man! Granted, Larry King was one of the more boring people on television in the history of television, but these comments aren't not too far off.
