CNN Host Piers Morgan suspect in UK phone hacking scandal?

Piers Morgan, the man who replaced Larry King, was caught on tape describing how in 2009 he used to use various unsavory methods to get information.  The Telegraph and Daily Beast published the interview.

Q: [P]eople who tap people’s phones, people who take secret photographs, who do all that very nasty down-in-the-gutter stuff-how did you feel about that?”

A: Well, to be honest, let’s put that into 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 pretense 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 the low end of the supposed newspaper market.

If true this would cost Morgan his current job, working permits and even his Green Card.  The Justice Department has begun a full scale investigation into the hacking of 9/11 members.  Morgan has been franticly denying he was involved to just about anyone who would listen.
