TV Personality

The Resume

    (March 30, 1965- )
    Born in Newick, East Sussex, United Kingdom
    Former editor of the British tabloids 'Daily Mirror' and 'News of the World'
    Former judge on 'America's Got Talent' and 'Britain's Got Talent'

Why he might be annoying:

    He takes on the 'rude, British judge' role made famous by Simon Cowell on 'America's Got Talent.'
    He upset Sharon Osbourne so badly for harshly criticizing the performance of a 9-year-old girl that she walked off the stage.
    He got beat up by 'Top Gear' host Jeremy Clarkson for publishing pictures of Clarkson cheating on his wife.
    He doesn't seem to get along with anyone.
    He sometimes hit his buzzer during the performances on 'Talent' just to see if the noise distracts the performers.
    His harsh criticism caused many of the contestants to break out in tears.
    Tens of thousands of pro-gun Americans petitioned for him to be deported after he publicly supported gun control measures following the Sandy Hook school shooting (December 24, 2012).

Why he might not be annoying:

    His criticism was more constructive and less mean than Simon Cowell's.
    He was the most blunt and honest of the 'America's Got Talent' judges.
    He was a friend of Princess Diana.
    He was only 28 when he became the editor of 'News of the World.'
