    CNN's Piers Morgan seems to be caught up in this whole phone hacking scandal that Rupert Murdoch and News of the World have been up to. Before Morgan starting working for CNN to replace Larry King, he was an editor for News of the World and Daily Mirror. He is now accused of obtaining information from phone hacking, that he either directly did himself or knew that took place while he was the active editor. While he outright denies these allegations, he recently told BBC this, which makes hims seem rather guilty indeed:

    “To be honest, let’s put that in perspective as well. Not a lot of that went on. A lot of it was done by third parties rather than the staff themselves. That’s not to defend it, because obviously you were running the results of their work. I’m quite happy to be parked in the corner of tabloid beast and to have to sit here defending all these things I used to get up to, and I make no pretence about the stuff we used to do. I simply say the net of people doing it was very wide, and certainly encompassed the high and low end of the supposed newspaper market.” Source: CNN's Piers Morgan 'told interviewer stories were published based on phone tapping'

    Sounds guilty to me. What does everyone else think?
