This is an extraordinary – and dangerous – five minutes of “mainstream” TV. It is five minutes of a black women’s rights activist trashing Piers Morgan to his face and on his own show, Good Morning Britain, as he tries to defend the Royal Family from the fallout of the Meghan and Harry interview.

Shola Mos-Shogbamimu hurls a barrage of unprecedented invective against Morgan, calling him a “liar and disgrace”, “disgusting”, a “racist and misogynist” and all but tells him to shut up. This treatment doubtless paved the way to his walk-out a day later and his departure from the show.

Even though I agree with pretty much everything Mos-Shogbamimu says, especially the parts of about the Royal Family and Britain’s racist, colonial past, the interview nonetheless made me feel almost – but only almost – sorry for Piers Morgan, one of the most thoroughly obnoxious narcissists on TV.

I strongly urge everyone to watch this clip, but only after you have inoculated yourself from its powerful narcoleptic effects by reading my health warning below.

The segment is a masterclass in how the corporate media so capably and thoroughly manipulates us that we end up willing our own hypnotisation into a political trance.

Every moment of Mos-Shogbamimu’s attack on Morgan is being stage-managed – though not by her, she’s simply the unwitting medium through which the deception is perpetrated. View it as a sophisticated lullaby, masquerading as fearless honesty, singing us deeper into sleep.

In fact, this bedtime song has three verses, intended to transform us each time into a zombie cheerleader for a different cause: first, either for Meghan or the Royals; then, for Morgan or Mos-Shogbamimu; and thirdly, for Morgan or the Good Morning Britain execs who are really pulling the strings.

This is a trilogy of corporate media-managed celebrity drama designed to prevent us from thinking about what’s really going on in our societies, societies run by and for psychopathic corporations like Good Morning Britain’s broadcaster, ITV.

Thought experiment

To fully understand how confected and bogus this segment is from start to finish, I suggest you carry out a small thought experiment.

Imagine for a moment this same scene playing out but not between Morgan and Mos-Shogbamimu feuding over Meghan’s personal, celebrity agonies. Imagine it taking place instead two years ago between Morgan and an equally outspoken supporter of the then Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Imagine this isn’t about the issue of whether a mix-race boy will be allowed to call himself “prince”, or whether Meghan has felt depressed and isolated by her treatment from the Royals, but about much larger matters of political and public urgency: say, the antisemitism smears used to demonise Corbyn and his party, or the sinister corporate media campaign against him.

Then imagine that, like Mos-Shogbamimu, Corbyn’s ally is given five minutes to berate Morgan, calling him a liar, a racist, a misogynist, and telling him to his face to keep quiet and listen.

ORDER IT NOW

Imagine further, if you can, that the Corbyn supporter not only feels bold enough to say all these things on Morgan’s own show but is allowed to get away with it. Not only does Morgan fight back with one arm very visibly tied behind his back, but his own GMB execs let the segment run and run, preventing him from shutting down the interview, either verbally or by turning off the video connection.

Can’t imagine it? Of course, you can’t. Because it would never be allowed to happen. No ally of Corbyn’s would ever be given five minutes to trash Piers Morgan while upholding the rights of working people or criticising the rigged nature of the corporate media.

Car-crash TV moment

Which means, of course, that Mos-Shogbamimu got to bad-mouth Morgan at length – however justifiably – only because GMB execs wanted her to.

They used her to send a message to Morgan that he was on the way out, which is why he sits and takes the tirade sheepishly (for him). They used her to wash their corporate hands of any taint that they might condone racism. They used her to persuade viewers that GMB and other corporate media are able to hold themselves up to fearless scrutiny. And most important of all, they used her to engineer a car-crash TV moment that has dominated headlines across the media and will gain them a larger audience and bigger profits.

And all of that happened at no meaningful political cost to corporate Britain. The same racist, corrupt, war-mongering system will carry on as before.

Piers Morgan was set up, first with this confrontation with Mos-Shogbamimu and then the following day in a more restrained clash with his own weather presenter, Alex Beresford. Morgan got the message loud and clear. He was being played by the programme he fronts.

Sadly, too many of us still don’t understand that we are being played too. And unlike Piers Morgan, we have everything to lose and nothing to gain from this cynical corporate power game.

  1. As much as I like Susana and Charlotte, the banter won’t be the same without Piers. The UK already has a train wreck called Loose Women… does it really need another yenta kaffeeklatsch?

  2. How Piers Morgan shapes the discourse ;

  3. I guess since Fox News perfected this type of open ideological conflict on their cable news shows for the last couple of decades.

    Corporate media has decided to take the show on the road albeit with a new format. Walter Cronkite must be spinning in his grave.

    Racial strife is now the “soup du jour” in the hopes of clawing back the eyeballs legacy cable media has been losing to the new format of streaming media.

    Nothing like mouthy black broads shouting down “white privileged” males in need of being taken down a notch in their racist ivory towers.

    It seems Jerry Springer has invaded the austere cultured stuffed shirt world of news media. Now we can have conflict in the studio while the onstage clowns report on the conflict and drama from across the world.

    Anything to make a shekel I guess while keeping the vapid boob tube masses entertained during The Great Covid Lockdown.

  4. I could care less what blacks have to say and how they feel. This black sheboon and the rest like her can go live in Africa and run their mouth.Let’s see how long they last. If it wasn’t for White Western Civilization she would be living in mudhuts and poking sticks into termite mounds for dinner. White Civilization created the modern world. Not blacks. And Whites owe blacks NOTHING>We are not going to let these loudmouth black KArens dictate anything…or should it be Shaniquas..since Karens really came from these very loudmouth black sheboons like on this show. All these ghetto trash black women are the original Karens…or Shaniquas…all they do is scream and yell like they are the most important thing ever and that everyone around is supposed to just stop and listening to their convoluted BS.You ever been aound black women in the cities and ghettos . Then you would know who the real Karens are.blacks love to deflect their violent , degenerate , loudmouth idiocy onto Whites.

    Its all just theatre.

    Keep up looking at the little game and ignoring the big game.

  6. The obvious response (were it possible to get a word in) to this shrieking beast is an invitation to return to Africa if she finds things so bad here. Not very original but no less true for that. Reminds me of the time a gang of African freeloaders in Galway held up signs proclaiming ‘ENDA YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE’. The ‘Enda’ in question was the Irish Prime Minister at that time who was born and raised in the adjoining county.

  7. Man, you and Craig Murray have your heads so far up your arse on the Royal Family, that you have no credibility.
    Some skank who has seen more rubber than a tire factory, is complaining about her treatment on a TV show hosted by the racist (I have to back Obumboy because he’s Black) Doprah Windbag, complaining about whether her quadroon/octaroon son will have a title, and it’s all the Royal Family’s fault. FFS Cook, Princess Anne’s kids don’t have titles and neither do Edward’s kids.
    They didn’t do anything to help? Moving from Kensington Palace and allowing them to renovate and live at Frogmore Cottage wasn’t help?
    Just what privilege does the Royal Family have? The privilege to be hounded by the press, have inflammatory or libelous stories written about them without being able to respond? The privilege of having scum like Thatcher, Blair, May and Bojo the Clown writing the “Throne Speech” and telling her what legislation she is going to be signing? Giving out titles, chosen by the previously mentioned scum, to people she would just as soon execute?
    Yeah, they are far from perfect, but not the cause of Britain’s problems. That started when the Puritans took their 30 pieces of silver from the Red Sea Pedestrians in Amsterdam to commit regicide. It’s been all down hill since.

    Becoming the embodiment of RACIST WHITEY cum PERFIDIOUS ALBION over some soap opera involving various upper crust people and being berated on TV by a Sassy Black Mama who feels really strongly about all of this and for some reason (maybe the weather? or all the African Antiracist Kangz?) has settled in the UK is the epitome of fulfillment of the penchant of British Masochism.

    A good whipping would have been even better but then OFCOM would get even MORE complaints.

  9. This is a trilogy of corporate media-managed celebrity drama designed to prevent us from thinking about what’s really going on in our societies, societies run by and for psychopathic corporations like Good Morning Britain’s broadcaster, ITV.

    I think the appropriate approach to this type of a set-up, which is essentially nothing more than tiresome race-baiting, is not to dialogue, not to clarify one’s position, and not to defend/discuss – that is in fact what the provocateur is fully seeking.

    The appropriate response is to affirm the complaint of the provocateur, and to immediately move to the underlying issue that they really do NOT want discussed –

    Not all peoples’ are compatible – extreme differences in attitude, consideration toward others, hostility, aggressive or dangerous behavior, lack of general social altruism, exclude existing under the same government with other people’s, and the denial of this reality (usually by those who economically ensure their are own family is not in any way impacted) is the actual underlying problem.

    Attempting to homogenize completely culturally alien populations has only one assured outcome, which is that the most demanding, assertive, hostile, and unreasonable component will continually assert the right to control the entire social fabric of the artificial society, to the detriment of the rational element(s).

    In the early Gothic and Frankish administered societies, the Merovingians, Lotharingians, Burgundians etc.. we see a coping mechanism commonly employed to manage what are culturally polyglot societies, which is to in effect institute separate legal codes for varying ethnic groups within what is acknowledged by all to be a fully artificial state.

    In modern times, we have degenerated into mandated nonsensical egalitarianism, which is an enforced requirement to pretend that all peoples’ want – or can obtain – the same outcomes, and share the same courtesy and fair play toward out-groups, which even literal ‘Dark Ages’ cultures realized was utter nonsense.

    “You are right – we are simply too different to to co-exist under the same governance”
    is not only truthful, but it redirects the argument to the actual issue at hand, which the provocateur does not at all desire to address.

    There is a compatibility zone, in the center of a population triquetra, that can assimilate without major difficulty, and as you move out from that triquetra compatibility zone (culturally – linguistically – behaviourally), the more unlikely it is that the divergent population would assimilate.

    A significant lack of general intellect in a population leads to an inability to comprehend actual cause and effect, but being too cunning leads to predation on other populations. From altitude, the actual problem is the nonsensical assertion that composite populations with their own separate cultures can truly be relied on to act fairly, honestly and considerately, within an artificial society.

    The actual outcome is that those sub-populations that generally are inclined to fairness will reliably be exploited in this arrangement, which is a foregone conclusion because it is based upon millenia of actual human interactive experience.

    To maintain any naturally-constituted nation state, there must be a dominant and majority culture, generally the culture that created said state, and without such a guiding standard you will eventually fall victim to predation by the demands of the least cohesive upon the general population.

    In the end “show where this has ever worked before” is the ultimate – and only – test of long term viability.

    The execs, and the whole org. down to producers and floor staff can do this in complete confidence by the one simple trick of remaining fundamentally anonymous.
    If they were made as famous as the admittedly unpleasant and oleaginous Piers, they’d be less gung-ho in their anti-British cancelling zeal.

  25. I couldn’t agree more. The American establishment media, is the hugest and most effective brainwashing apparatus in the entire world. This includes the magazines, newspapers, college presses and book publishers. Throw in leftist controlled Hollywood and there is practically nothing they can’t get the majority of Americans to do or think. The fact is, most people are totally clueless in believing that their very own thoughts, are even their own, instead of what they have been relentlessly brainwashed into believing. It takes a serious attempt at some real introspection by people to understand their own nature and why they do the things they do. Much of it is unknown but some of the reasons people act the way they do or say the things they say are plain obvious. Writers have dealt with this problem on a personal level forever.

    Sharon Osbourne apologized for her defense of Piers Morgan on Friday —

    “I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive & allowed my fear & horror of being accused of being racist take over,” she added. “There are very few things that hurt my heart more than racism so to feel associated with that spun me fast! I am not perfect, I am still learning like the rest of us & will continue to learn, listen and do better”

    “I’m not racist, neither is Piers racist, and I hate the fact of even saying I’m not racist, it’s a terrible evil word to call anybody without knowledge of that,” she said

    “I have always been embraced with so much love & support from the Black community & I have deep respect & love for the Black community. To anyone of colour that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry.”

    https://www.mediaite.com/entertainment/sharon-osbourne-apologizes-for-panicked-defense-of-piers-morgan-after-meltdown-goes-viral/

    Apologizing or placating racial grievance instigators always ends up the same way, it seems. Sharon did not get the memo. The grievance ‘industry’ and its profiteers play these games because it is profitable and it works.

    If the outcome is proposing amicable terms to split with the antagonist, who is not at all interested in such an outcome, the cost/benefit ratio is not longer appealing. Being incompatible is not exclusive to racial or ethnic differences, but if the adversary angrily asserts incompatibility, who am I to argue against it?

    Compatibility specifically requires populations with shared common purpose, and the appropriate response is to take the word of those asserting otherwise.

    (((Springer))) was a member of the City Council that was appointed as Mayor of Cincinnati for one year due to some weird, arcane city law regarding party-sharing rule (since revoked).

    This was after he regained the City Council seat he had resigned from three years before in the wake of a scandal where he had solicited a prostitute at a massage parlor. He was caught because he paid her by his personal check–and the check bounced, leading the aggrieved madam to “put his business in the street”, so to speak.

  32. Syd Walker says: • Website

    These last few days a lot of people have vented their spleen on Piers Morgan, treating him as a representative of the mainstream media they loathe (generally for good reasons).

    Quite a few people believe he’s publicly supporting racism, which is untrue and unfair. Watch this segment from GMB last week, for instance..

    If I recall correctly, at the time of the Iraq invasion, Morgan was the only editor of a major British newspaper who openly opposed the war. In 2004 he was fired for publishing photos implicating British troops in acts of torture.

    The story is told here:

    https://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2013/01/piers-morgan-on-phone-hacking-iraq-photos-154551

    I’m not here as an apologist for Piers Morgan, who’s quite capable of defending himself. I disagree with him about plenty, but hold him in much higher regard than the many conformist hacks who went along with Blair over the murderous assault on Iraq rather than risk swimming against the shoal.

    Point is that since the beginning of time every race has been racist and most of them still are. So why target the white man and leave every other race alone .

    I seriously doubt the Han Chinese are going to let Africans in any significant number settle permanently in China. This is absurd.

    Japan and South Korea also appear to be doing just fine without mass immigration despite having the lowest birth rates in the world. Saudi Arabia as well. In fact, almost the entire planet is doing just fine without the type of mass immigration forced upon Western countries for the last 40 years.

    Finally, I actually was in the refugee crisis in Europe in 2015. The most common “tool” the refugees were using were their feet (plus some dingys). They could have made that trek into Germany in any era, and, in fact, did, except as armies (Gates of Vienna etc). What kept them at bay was not a lack of technology, but will power which today we lack.

    How about defining a nation as a collection of people who live by the same laws? It is when the law is applied inconsistently (or not at all) when dealing with people of different cultures/ethnicities that the cracks begin to show and what used to be a nation becomes merely a country.

    worldometers.info will also provide one with tons of almost real time statistics on covid 19 by country. They have a live spreadsheet with around a dozen columns with titles like ‘country, ‘total cases’, ‘new cases’,’total deaths’, ‘new deaths’ and on and on. The facts can be sorted by each column and there is a search field as well to search for any country. It is updated every 24 hours. Very handy site.
