Breaking news during tonight’s edition of Piers Morgan Tonight: On the heels of Morgan’s fiery interview with Alex Jones, the man who started the petition to deport the CNN host, the White House addressed the petition.
The official White House statement, via spokesman Jay Carney:
The White House responds to all petitions that cross the threshold and we will respond to this one. In the meantime, it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy.”
