Piers Morgan Disputes MP’s Hacking Claim During Rupert Murdoch Hearing

During the Parliament’s long interrogation of Rupert Murdoch this morning, one MP mentioned a book by CNN host Piers Morgan. TVNewser explained how MP and author Louise Mensch alleged that Morgan wrote in his 2005 autobiography (The Insider: Private Diaries of a Scandalous Decade) how he had hacked phones for a story.

Morgan denied the claim in a Twitter statement: “That MP just claimed I boasted in my book of using phone-hacking for a scoop. Complete nonsense. Just read the book. I’ve never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, or published any stories based on the hacking of a phone. I wrote in my book that someone warned me phones could be hacked, so I changed my pin number. That’s it.”

Mensch (pictured, via) has written twelve books, and her official biography dedicated a paragraph to her writing career:  “On her 22nd birthday, Louise’s passion for writing was realised with a major publishing deal. To date, Louise has written twelve novels including a string of bestsellers. She has sold over two million books worldwide.”
