"Had we done the interview," Morgan wrote, "I might have asked him how his heroic support for women justified him working for director Roman Polanski, a self-confessed and convicted child abuser, on the film, The Ghostwriter."

He also, in hours of Twitter responses and retweets, sent out stuff like this:
