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."

Thanks for this!
So how doers an assclown like this even get considered for a TV show?
Easy. He’s Left wing.
I’m just surprised Eric Fuller hasn’t got his own show yet.
Thanks for posting. We need to remember this.
“The board of Trinity Mirror has decided that it would be inappropriate for Piers Morgan to continue in his role as editor of the Daily Mirror and he will therefore be stepping down with immediate effect.”
The Sun newspaper had offered a £50,000 reward for “information about the fake Mirror photos” but withdrew the offer following the sacking of Morgan. “
CNN hires a vicious hoaxster, how.......CNN
Maybe he can hire Rather Dan. I hear he’s looking for work.
Jason Blair guest hosting for Anderson Cooper.
Well shoot, they brought Hawaii 50 back from the abyss....they could bring back “The FBI” with Holder starring on a recurring basis as what else...the attorney general!
I thought his name seemed familiar- I’d completely forgotten about that incident. Thanks for the reminder. What an SOB.
He was also won The Celebrity Apprentice. He was a real a** on the show.
CNN hates truth.
Did you see the one where Jeremy Clarkson beat up Piers Morgan for lying about him? (for those who don’t know, Clarkson is one of the best reporters in the UK- leans right and is as funny as hell.)
I’ll post that next.
And he ends up getting a job at CNN? Go figure.
It’s the Commie News Network!
OKaaaaay.... so, what is that picture??
From a recent Parade magazine interview:
Parade - What made Simon Cowell, executive producer of Americas Got Talent, hire you as a judge?
Morgan - He said he was trying to find somebody as obnoxious as him.
