In a BBC documentary in 2018 aboutand the court case National AIDS Trust v NHS Service Commissioning Board, Pierce strongly criticised the idea of taxpayer-funded PrEP, a preventative medication to protect against contracting HIV: “That’s what this is about: indulging gay men who don’t want to use a condom. Well that’s outrageous. Why should the taxpayer subsidise a reckless sex life of people in the gay community?”
Pierce presented a Sunday morning political radio show on the commercial radio station LBC 97.3 from 2008 until he left in 2012. That radio programme was in the latter years presented as a double-headed show withfrom the Daily Mirror.

He started presenting a Saturday Breakfast show on LBC Radio from 22 March 2014.
In 2014, the Daily Mail had to pay damages to Kirsten Farage after Pierce falsely claimed in a column that she had been a mistress of Nigel Farage, then the leader of UKIP, while he was still married to his first wife. In May 2018, the Daily Mail paid £11,000 towards the legal costs of the writer Kate Maltby after the publication of an article by Pierce about the claims of sexual harassment Maltby made against the politician. The article was removed from the Mail’ s website without the publication having made an admission of fault.

Pierce was raised, and remains, a Roman Catholic. He is openly gay, strongly supports civil partnerships, and lives in a long-term civil partnership, legalised by the Labour Government’s Civil Partnership Act 2004. He was, and remains, opposed to same-sex marriage, legalised by the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013. He stated that his opposition to its introduction was the lack of public support for it, the creation of a possible schism between Church and State, and that there were no new rights accorded to it that did not already exist under Labour’s 2004 civil partnership law. He also cited the views of several prominent gay people opposed to it, such as Labour MP, and those unsure about it, such as historian , and its absence from the election manifestos of the political parties that introduced it. He said it was therefore pointless to introduce it, and criticised Prime Minister David Cameron for treating it as a priority.
Pierce first became interested in right-wing politics as a first-time voter in 1979. He is a former Assistant Editor of both The Daily Telegraph and The Times newspapers, and an ex-Political Editor of the latter. He is a columnist and Consultant Editor for the Daily Mail, which he joined in 2009.
