America’s Got Talent on NBC‘s judge, Piers Morgan, was recently accused of phone hacking. Despite the fact that Piers denied any involvement with Rupert Murdoch, the allegations remain. Piers Morgan is now seeking an apology over the allegations, but will he get it? Read on for more!
America’s Got Talent judge, Piers Morgan was recently accused of phone hacking by Member of Parliament Louise Mensch in which Piers denied yesterday. Then in an angry over the air exchange between the pair, Piers Morgan challenged Louise Mensch to repeat her claim that he had “boasted” of phone hacking in a book about his tabloid editor days. Louise Mensch refused to do so claiming that she covered by parliamentary privilege – which protects her from legal action for anything said inside parliament.
Angry over this, Piers Morgan said: “I’m amused by her cowardice in refusing to repeat that allegation now that she’s not in parliament covered by privilege” and then he sought an apology as he added: “I think you should apologize for being a liar.” Piers Morgan may get his wishes on America’s Got Talent, but he would not be in this case. Though Piers repeatedly said that Louise Mensch should gain “the balls” to repeat her allegations and “apologize” to him since there was no evidence, Louise refused as she said: “I feel no need whatsoever to apologize.”
