The establishment media and grifting hacks like Piers Morgan always sensationalize the truth in order to feed the public propaganda geared to gain them both viewers and points with establishment politicians.
On Wednesday, new outlet Talk TV — which is a subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. — tweeted out a promo for an “exclusive interview” Morgan had with former President Donald Trump. Not only did the outlet up the warmth in their video to make Trump look more “orange” and very sweaty, but the ad pushed the notion that Trump walked away from the interview.
Donald Trump: "I think I'm a very nice man, more honest than you ... turn the camera off."— TalkTV (@TalkTV) April 20, 2022

Well, because the leftist media is full of “geniuses,” they didn’t anticipate Trump having his own people audio record the interview in its full context.
NBC News of all places published an article detailing the Trump audio, which directly contradicted the framing Talk TV presented of the interview.
According to the NBC News:
An audio recording obtained by NBC News appears to show that former President Donald Trump’s highly publicized interview with Piers Morgan did not end with Trump storming off the set, as edited promotional video clips suggest.[…]
But the audio of the end of the interview appears to tell a different story. The two men laughed and thanked each other, the recording shows. There are no signs of Trump's storming off set.
"That was a great interview," Morgan says in the audio at the end.
Trump agrees with a “yeah."
"Thank you very much. I really appreciate it," Morgan says.
That's when Trump says, "Turn the camera off." By then, the former president had already risen from his chair, according to his communications director, Taylor Budowich, who supplied the audio to NBC News.
While Morgan has had some noteworthy, honest takes politically, the majority of his career has been spent grifting off the success of more talented people. Whether it was Morgan himself who selectively and deceptively edited the Talk TV ad for the interview, “honest” isn’t a word to be used for the tactics used in this instance.
I’d say shame on Talk TV, but is it really all that surprising anymore?
