Fast Chat: Piers Morgan’s Nemesis

Paul 'Guido Fawkes' Staines talks hacking and out-of-context quoting

Piers Morgan may have no bigger enemy in the blogosphere than Paul Staines. Though virtually unknown in the U.S., Staines—who writes under the pseudonym "Guido Fawkes"—operates one of the more widely-read political blogs in Britain. The libertarian Staines is Matt Drudge with more schadenfreude, and he's been leading the charge against Morgan as questions mount over the CNN host's involvement in the U.K. hacking scandal. By phone from a summer home in the French countryside, Staines spoke to Adweek about Morgan, the tabloids, and why he thinks his vendettas are justified.
