Morgan contradicted himself twice. First, Mills said the conversation was with a journalist, not an executive. How would Morgan have known otherwise?
Secondly, Morgan saying he had “no knowledge of any conversation” is incorrect as well, and that bit of info comes from Morgan himself. In a 2006 interview with Britain’s Daily Mail, Morgan commented on the voicemail that he heard, saying:
"[A]t one stage I was played a tape of a message Paul had left for Heather on her mobile phone. It was heartbreaking. The couple had clearly had a tiff, Heather had fled to India, and Paul was pleading with her to come back. He sounded lonely, miserable and desperate, and even sang 'We Can Work It Out' into the answerphone."
Okay, so what was that about “having no knowledge of any conversation” again?
Needless to say, U.K. legislators want Morgan to return to the UK to answer some questions regarding this alleged incident. Jim Sheridan, a Conservative legislator on parliament's Culture, Media and Sport committee which is investigating phone-hacking, thinks that, "If the evidence suggests the Mirror group, Piers Morgan or indeed anyone else has been involved in phone-hacking then the police have to contact them and make sure that their nest is clean. I am deeply suspicious that this doesn't stop at News International."
Gee, Jim, what would make you suspicious of that? The fact that Murdoch had to close down the News Of The World because they were caught doing the same thing?
Even Sir Paul knows something is up. McCartney told journalists during a tour stop in Ohio that, “When I go back [to Britain] after this tour, I am going to talk to the police because apparently I have been hacked. I don't know much about it because they won't tell anyone except the person themselves. So I will be talking to them about that. I do think it's horrendous violation of privacy. I do think it has been going on for a long time and I do think more people than we know knew about it. But I think I should just listen and hear what the facts are before I comment,"
