Democracy Now: Journalist: CNN Host Piers Morgan Boasted of Phone Hacking

A British journalist has accused CNN host Piers Morgan of teaching him how to hack into other peoples’ phones a decade ago. BBC journalist Jeremy Paxman told a judicial inquiry into media standards that Morgan had boasted in 2002 about how easy it was to access the voicemail of other peoples’ cell phones. At the time, Morgan was the editor of the British tabloid, The Daily Mirror, after previously editing Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World. Morgan now hosts CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.” He has previously denied authorizing phone hacking.
