In denial: Piers Morgan

It was Piers Morgan's turn in the hot seat on Tuesday when the CNN talk show host and former "America's Got Talent" judge was called for questioning before the British government. During the inquiry into journalism ethics, the former Daily Mirror editor denied engaging in any phone hacking during his stint with the paper, while still acknowledging the practice as a widespread problem in the U.K. However, Morgan's former Daily Mirror colleague James Hipwell had a very different recollection of hacking at the paper, telling the ethics panel it was happening almost daily.
