More from the Murdochery of recent weeks: it looks like Piers Morgan, the CNN host who was a tabloid editor at the time but denied any involvement, really does have some explaining to do. He gave an interview in 2006 in which he described listening to celebrity voicemails:
In an article published by the Daily Mail, Morgan said that he had been played a tape of a message [Paul] McCartney had left on [Heather] Mills' cell phone in the wake of one of their fights.
"It was heartbreaking," Morgan wrote. "He sounded lonely, miserable and desperate, and even sang 'We Can Work It Out' into the answerphone."
A Guardian editor also admitted hacking voicemails in a 2006 story. Though it was to investigate a corrupt arms trader, the fact that people are now concerned about what happened to Heather Mills suggests that this line of reasoning may not get him off the hook.
Just what we needed, said exactly no one.
