Gotta love how Peirs Morgan is considered part of the far right in this article. #FakeNews
#FakeNews on your #FakeNews. It doesn't say far right anywhere in the article. It says 'right-wing elite' and 'who’s-who of right wing celebrities'. I think Piers Morgan fits right into that category.

How far to the left do your goalposts need to start for Piers Morgan to be considered right-wing?

I guess we're talking semantics here, but he's a conservative - without a doubt. To me conservatives are right wing and progressives are left wing, simple as that. You want to call him a centrist or something, that's your prerogative, but the very concept barely exists in today's political environment.

What are you trying to prove? That he's to the left of Shapiro on one specific issue? That does not preclude him from being labeled right wing. If it had said conservative, would you have been okay with that?

At most he's near the center. 'Right-wing elite' is a definite mischaracterization of Peirs. It's a narrative that dismisses the legitimacy of the argument being made, and is woefully inaccurate. And in this case it is an unfortunate example of #FakeNews

So your issue is with the whole concept of left wing/right wing. It's not fake news. He's squarely right of center on the whole. Just because he's not Steve King or whoever, doesn't change that characterization. If you're trying to say that the backlash to the Gilette thing is larger than just right wing folks, I think you're sorely mistaken. The 'backlash' is absolutely coming from right of center - it's not a mainstream thing at all.

Couple sanctions with government shutdown, and effects are felt globally.
