Editor sacked over ‘hoax’ photos

Piers Morgan

The Mirror board said Morgan would be stepping down immediately

Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan has been sacked after the newspaper conceded photos of British soldiers abusing an Iraqi were fake.

In a statement the Mirror said it had fallen victim to a “calculated and malicious hoax” and that it would be “inappropriate” for Morgan to continue.

The Queen’s Lancashire Regiment (QLR) said the Mirror had endangered British troops by running the pictures.

Roger Goodman, of the QLR, said the regiment now felt “vindicated”.

Mr Goodman added: “It is just a great pity it has taken so long… and that so much damage has been done in the meantime.”

The Daily Mirror… apologises unreservedly for publishing the pictures and deeply regrets the reputational damage done to the QLR and the Army in Iraq

    No wonder he is such a hero to the Left. He has all the desirable traits. Anti military, anti gun, pro big government. Willing to lie and falsify a story, to advance an agenda.

    The Brits have started a campaign to not have him deported from the U.S.
    Seems they don’t want him either.

    Cardigan, what’s the proper way to end a sentence that closes with an abbreviation using periods, as in the “U.S.” above?

    Btw, my suggestion for your upcoming weekly column is “Miss Grammatical”.

    Why do white guys who make up news win awards and/or are promoted whereas black guys who make up news are never heard from again?

    Another prime example of ‘punchable face’!

    This creep has been involved with sleazy dealings for YEARS.
    The QLR hoax was just the tip of the iceberg. He was also “alleged” to have been involved in the huge phone hacking scandal, which was a massive scandal.
    Even his wiki bio is full of crap this guy’s been involved with.

    When Piers was 5 his uncle (the one who smelled funny) showed him a magical puppet – so magical that if Piers put it in his mouth and sucked real hard, he was rewarded with magic elixer!

    He’s believed in the magical puppet all his life …
