His somewhat desperate appeal to Trump was followed by a discussion on the possibility that he may be leaving his slot on ITV’s Good Morning Britain. The reaction was, well, as you might expect:

Partners in crime?

Meanwhile, with so many of Trump’s former staff members now facing criminal proceedings, the prospect of Morgan facing the same fate seemed to appeal to a lot of people:

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
