From Tea to Flee party

Piers Morgan will be feeling pretty smug today after achieving the biggest coup of his CNN career; the chat-show host provoked Tea Party member and wacko Christine O'Donnell into storming off, mid-way through the interview. O'Donnell wasn't best pleased with Piers' line of questioning. Piers needs a boost after being dogged by the hacking scandal over the past month. Morgan has dropped a few clanging hints in his books about the widespread use of hacking during his time at the Mirror, which could ultimately lead to the demise of his career at CNN. Piers has won both admirers and detractors in equal measure.

O'Donnell told Fox news that she didn't regret her decision to stomp off mid-interview, 'He had a decidedly inappropriate line of questions leading up to that, that many people - bloggers - are saying was just border-line creepy. I was not there to talk about sex, and he would not stop trying to talk about sex.'I'm not a 20-year-old on MTV right now,' she added. 'So let's get back to the political issues that I lay out in the book, and he wouldn't let up. I was already late for a Republican Women's event that was being covered by C-Span, and so there is a room full of women wondering where I am, and I'm getting the wrap-up signal on the sidelines… enough here Piers. He's a cheeky bugger, I wish him well.'

Piers tweeted in retaliation, 'Ms O'Donnell wasn't happy about me quizzing her views on witchcraft and sex. But really flipped at gay marriage Qs. Ripped mike and fled. I guess viewers can decide if I was 'rude' or not tonight.'
