Shooting Straight: Guns, Gays, God, and George Clooney by Piers Morgan -- Hardcover
Condition: Like New
With dust jacket.
From ultimate media insider Piers Morgan, an adrenaline-fueled account of life at CNN, exclusive stories about his celebrity encounters, and details about his high-profile decision to take on the issue of gun control at its historical tipping point.
When Piers Morgan arrived in the US, he was a thoughtful outsider and observer of our country--from rushing to the roof of the studio that filmed America's Got Talent so that he could broadcast live breaking news about the tsunami in Japan, only to rush back and judge a singing, dancing Christmas tree; from declaring in no uncertain terms that the 2011 shooting of Gabby Giffords would change American guns laws as surely as the 1996 massacres in Dunblain, Scotland, and Tasmania, Australia, had done, only to rail in disbelief the following year at the Newtown, Connecticut, massacre in 2012, and the gun lobby's insistence that it was "too soon" to discuss the problem of guns in America.
Told in a page-turning diary format, Piers will give a riveting account of life at CNN, dish on his encounters with celebrities, politicians and heads of state, and share the genesis of his career-defining participation in the gun debate and other hot-button issues. Shooting Straight tells it like it is, as only Piers Morgan can.
