CNN Confirm Piers Morgan Will Face the Music

The rest of the media finally caught up with what Guido told you four hours ago: Morgan will be before Leveson this week. CNN have confirmed and Guido’s sources say the appearance is pencilled in for Tuesday. You can refresh yourself with Guido’s campaign to get to this point here. Morgan will deny phone-hacking under oath. What could possibly go wrong further down the line…

UPDATE: Rumour has it Morgan has asked to testify via video link from New York. He just can’t stop spinning. His rapidly declining audience will barely notice if he misses one show. Leveson should tell him to get on a plane. Morgan needs to be in the room with one hand on the bible…

    You seem to have a bit of a problem with Morgan. I’d rather see Rusbridger in the dock.

      Yes but this is not the dock is it – it’s an Inquiry. I will repeat my question from an earlier page.

      Can one of you bright lot please re-assure me that all of this evidence being aired at the Leveson Inquiry will not prejudice prosecutions. The ultimate cynic might say this has all been contrived to protect the guilty parties.

      Will what happens here mean he cannot face court?

      But strictly speaking it is not the dock is it? Will all of the publicity surrounding the inquiry prejudice legal proceedings and is this all a stitch up?

      WVM says:

      Indeed, the head of the Bank of France and European Central Bank (ECB) policymaker Christian Noyer said that the UK should be downgraded before France, “which has more deficits, as much debt, more inflation, less growth than us and where credit is slumping”.

      The obvious fact the the British Banks aren’t exposed to club Med debit like the French banks seems to have passed him by, funny little man.

        If memory serves the ban on p*e & r*ce happened shortly after Brillo gave Diane Abbott a pasting on ‘This Week’ in June of last year. The result of which was so many ‘chicken r*ce and p*a jokes/comments the words got banned.
        But I think that time has past now and they should be allowed back.

      Since I watch neither of those amateur variety shows, I cannot comment on his awesomeness or otherwise. Having been exposed briefly to the genre, I would imagine that the smarmy cunt is just as anodyne a judge as he is an interviewer, so I shall spare myself the experience.

      I suppose you also watch Strictly Come Wasting the License Fee and the Ex-Take That Factor, so I shall give your appraisal of Mr Morgan’s capabilities the respect it deserves.

    I am still in a bit of a tiz on yesterdays press skirmisch , on this subject , but would ne doubt , he was in the same game as those currently enjoying levenson , still find the fake army photos hard to forgive .

    as you say , no point in missing him out in this pan press scandle/enquiry as he was so much of the era and a big player .

    Press freedom is a vital check and balance , there is perhaps the reporting of things in the public domain , opinion and comments , then there are things that are of interest in private matters that need enquiry and response. The press perhaps will end up a sort of regualtion , that if they do not do there homework before publishing and we have smear instead of unanswered questions is what may need pre and post publishing examination .
    Arbiting stories via a sort of czar before publishing has all sorts of problems .
    we are looking at extreme breeches (although on large scale and previous taken as common practice) , self regualtion has clearly not been able to stop an adventure into areas , that are very questionable as what the press should be about , and they blame competition pressures in a way rioters felt urged to nick plasma screens . there is a line of professional standards , perhaps on extreme occasion the reason to risk or break them , the bland accusing the dirty in this business is like negioating price in extortion , from what i have seen so far .
    Should public figures be ruined by errors of falsehoods? , surely the press has to accept somthing about the deliberate and the genuine errorr as do the rest of us .

        My paper today tells me that a taxi dr*ver in Oz was fined a large sum of cash for wearing jeans whilst on duty – ie operating his taximeter cabriolet perfectly competently.

        WTF cares what the operator is wearing so long as he is decent? Has that Julie Whatsername gone quite mad since she grabbed the levers of power?

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
