NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
Fox Nation host Piers Morgan said the woke left’s influence on business and the media was “unhealthy” Tuesday on “Jesse Watters Primetime.”
“They actually wield such unhealthy power over American corporations and American media,” he told host Jesse Watters. “… You see [dissidents] being bullied mercilessly all the time. My message to corporate America is, “Be more like Netflix and Spotify, and less like Disney.” Because you can’t bow to the crowd.”

“Be true to yourself, be true to your talent. Understand what free speech really means.”
Morgan defined it as tolerating “viewpoints you disagree with”.
“It’s not about saying, ‘My point of view is the only one, and if you don’t agree, we cancel you,'” he added.
The Fox Nation host slammed Twitter for “completely twisting reality.”
Only 20% of Americans are on Twitter, he noted. Of that 20%, 10% “make 80% of the noise”, he said.
“And they’re mostly kind of smarta-woke biased,” Morgan said, and Watters added that they’ve been in high-profile positions in politics and the media.
They “completely distort reality,” Morgan continued, speaking of a non-existent country.

“So the question for the rest of us is – and this is … the premise of my show actually, is: Are we going to be driven into a mentality – this ultra-awakened, canceled mindset of culture, which actually the vast majority of people in America, the UK and Australia, just about anywhere in the world vehemently disagree? And I say, “No”.
