Not So Smug Now Piers?

Piers Morgan is trying his very best to protect his high profile job at CNN and his massive salary by releasing a statement denying any involvement in phone hacking while he was editor at the Daily Mirror.
Morgan, who was also editor at the News Of The World stated yesterday
"I have never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, nor to my knowledge published any story obtained from the hacking of a phone".
    While Morgan is sticking to his guns, James Hipwell, a former Daily Mirror journalist, has spoken out and claimed that hacking at the paper was 'endemic' and it was 'inconceivable' that the editor didn't know about it.
    The accusations have now gathered pace with political bloggers putting their boot in too. The political blogger Guido Fawkes quoted a 2006 article Morgan wrote for the Daily Mail, in which he referred to a phone message left by Sir Paul McCartney for Heather Mills.
"I was played a tape of a message Paul had left Heather on her mobile phone. It was heartbreaking".
    The evidence seems to be stacking up against Piers Morgan and questions are now being raised about his time as editor.
Was he aware of the hacking or was he just a terrible editor who was incompetent at his job? Let's see how long Piers can stay smug for....
