On WMAL 105.9 FM/AM 630’s “Mornings on the Mall,” broadcasting from Washington, D.C., Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney weighed in on the Piers Morgan controversy involving the CNN host’s stance on gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre earlier this month.
Varney, who is also a British-born American cable news host, explained that it made him “uncomfortable” to hear Morgan denigrate American society.
“It makes me very uncomfortable,” Varney said. “And I don’t think we should do that. I don’t think British people should come over here with that hoity-toity accent, talk down to Americans and tell Americans that there is something wrong with their society.”
Varney elaborated on Morgan’s accent, which he said was associated with “snobbery.”
“[The accent] is associated with snobbery,” Varney said. “The worst thing you can do is come over here with a British accent and talk down to people as you’re supposedly giving the news. I don’t think you should do that, period.”
Varney said he is content with things the way they are in America.
“I want to go on the record: I love it here,” Varney added. “I’m happy here. I don’t want to change anything, OK?”
