Piers Morgan on Phone Hacking

"Apparently if you don't change the standard security code that every phone comes with, then anyone can call your number and, if you don't answer, tap in the standard four digit code to hear all your messages. I'll change mine just in case, but it makes me wonder how many public figures and celebrities are aware of this little trick."

-- Piers Morgan, writing in his 2005 book, The Insider: The Private Diaries of a Scandalous Decade, showing an early knowledge of phone hacking when he was editor of the British tabloid News of the World.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reports News Corp. has withdrawn its bid for BSkyB following growing pressure from U.K. lawmakers amid the phone-hacking scandal that ultimately closed News of the World.
