Mark Joyella has an interesting article posted on Mediaite about Piers Morgan's defense, via Twitter, of himself and Murdoch in the hacking scandal.
CNN’s Piers Morgan took to Twitter this afternoon, defending himself after a British member of Parliament suggested during the question of James and Rupert Murdoch that Morgan had admitted to phone hacking. “That MP just claimed I boasted in my book of using phone-hacking for a scoop,” Morgan tweeted to his 974,000 followers. “Complete nonsense. Just read the book.” Morgan’s memoir, The Insider: Private Diaries of a Scandalous Decade, discusses his time as a British tabloid editor–including working as editor of Murdoch’s now-closed News of the World–and has been singled out by a UK blogger for a reference to the ease of phone hacking. Morgan says he never described actually doing so. “I’ve never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, or published any stories based on the hacking of a phone.”
