Kenneth Feinberg and Piers Morgan Have Testy Exchange Over BP Victim Fund (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Apr 20th 2011 6:10PM
Kenneth Feinberg is the government-appointed administrator of the $20 billion BP Deepwater Horizon Disaster Victim Compensation Fund. On the one-year anniversary of the disaster, he spoke on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN) about the difficulty of distributing the money: Only $3.8 billion has so far reached Gulf Coast fisherman and business owners.

Morgan repeatedly pointed out that because many fishermen only conduct business in cash, tit was a struggle to make an evidence-backed claim on lost earnings.

"I don't need the type of documentary evidence that you would get from a big corporation," Feinberg explained. "But I have moral a responsibility to make sure this program isn't simply just come-one, come-all ... Pay me on the basis of a handshake -- I can't do that."

Tyra Banks was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN) and the talk -- about skinny models and men being brainwashed to think that's what thy want when, biologically, they want to feel softness next to them -- turned to breast augmentation.

Banks told Morgan about her early days as a model, when magazine covers showed off her assets. People thought she had fake breasts, so to prove that they're real, she once exposed them to the studio audience on her talk show, before having a doctor run a sonogram over them so they could be declared implant-free.

Like many of the luminaries Piers Morgan had on during the hour-long remembrance of Taylor, Fisher mentioned how kind and dedicated Taylor was to her friends, and spoke about the empathy the two-time Oscar Winner had for all those who were suffering.

Bill Maher: Republicans Are Scared of Any Black People Not Wearing Cosby Sweaters (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 21st 2011 4:50PM
On 'Real Time With Bill Maher' (Friday, 10PM ET on HBO) Maher argued that the Republicans aren't serious about governing because they focus on kooky fringe issues rather than what ails the nation.

Maher gave examples of these fringe issues, including an incident during the 2008 election in which two members of the New Black Panther Party were photographed outside a voting booth in Philadelphia armed with police-style batons. Maher admonished Republicans for continuing to obsess over this photograph, over two years later, and suggested their fixation has to do with a general fear of black people.

"But, it's time you understood something," Maher said, addressing a hypothetical member of the Republican Party. "Every black person scares you. Unless they look like Urkel, talk like Colin Powell and wear Bill Cosby sweaters, you fill your adult diaper."

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 17th 2011 4:30AM
Rudy Giuliani was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN), where he discussed the ongoing disaster in Japan.

Giuliani told Morgan that he goes to Japan on business quite frequently, so he wasn't surprised by how "enormously disciplined" the Japanese people have been in the wake of the earthquake, the tsunami and now the nuclear crisis. But the former New York city mayor is still impressed.

"If God forbid this had to happen anywhere, this is a country that can handle it," Giuliani said of Japan. "They're getting pushed to the point of ... it's really remarkable that they are able to handle it as well as they do. When you see the long lines of people lining up for water. No riots, no disturbances, no looting in any of these cities. Boy, you got a heck of a population in Japan."

Julianne Moore will be playing Sarah Palin in 'Game Change,' an upcoming HBO movie about the 2008 election.

Palin stopped by 'Hannity' (weekdays, 9PM ET on Fox News) where she was asked what she thought of Moore portraying her.

"Well, I'm all about job creation, and I guess I could provide some of the gals who pretend like they're me some job security," Palin said. "I would ask, though, if they're of the mind of spreading the wealth around that perhaps they could spring for one of my kids' sets of braces or something, as they capitalize on pretending to be me."

What about the negative drug tests Sheen produced last week? According to Baldwin, urine tests can be manipulated unless someone is closely watching the urination. After clearing that up, Baldwin issued Sheen a public challenge:

Kathy Griffin Explains Why She Went After 16-Year Old Willow Palin (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 9th 2011 10:45PM
Over the weekend, Sarah Palin ripped Kathy Griffin as an "adult bully" for saying that it was her New Year's resolution to "destroy" Palin's 16-year-old daughter, Willow.

On 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell' (weekdays, 8PM ET on MSNBC), Griffin explained that she had targeted Willow because Willow had used the word 'f-g' in a Facebook wall posting, a posting that the media had gotten hold of.

"When you're 16, you know, you're really not supposed to use that word," Griffin said. And that's a word you do really tie in with bullying, especially in the LGBT community -- a community I really don't think she really cares about ... Because you can see if you look at the posting, that's not a joke."

"It's very odd," Morgan shot right back.

"It's not. It's perfectly normal," Rumsfeld insisted, his wide smile masking his exasperation.

Alan Simpson, the former senator from Wyoming who currently co-chairs Barack Obama's debt commission, has drawn the ire of senior citizens by proposing changes to Social Security.

Appearing on 'Your World With Neil Cavuto' (weekdays, 4PM ET on Fox News), Simpson struck back at those critics, claiming they don't care about their grandchildren's financial future. However, in sticking up for the younger generation, Simpson made hilarious scatological additions to the names of hip-hop stars Snoop Dogg and Eminem.

"If they care at all about their children or grandchildren -- and sometimes I doubt that -- I think, you know, grandchildren now don't write a thank you for the Christmas presents. They're walking on their pants with the cap on backwards listening to the Enema Man and Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dogg, and they don't like 'em."

"The Charlie that I know ... he's a really great guy, and openly admits he fights demons, right?" Michaels continued.

Uber-producer Harvey Weinstein was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN), where he praised Charlie Sheen -- who Weinstein worked with on the 'Scary Movie' franchise -- as one of the best actors around "when motivated."

But Weinstein wasn't buying into Piers Morgan's theory that Sheen is currently playing a "smart game" with CBS, because, in Morgan's opinion, the network needs the "massive business" that 'Two and a Half Men' brings in.

"I know (CBS president) Les Moonves," Weinstein explained. "Charlie is playing a losing game."
