Don't ever forget who Piers Morgan is:

"In 1994, aged 29, he was appointed editor of the News of the World by Rupert Murdoch, which made him the youngest editor of a British national newspaper in more than half a century. He later edited the Daily Mirror, and was in charge during the period that the paper was implicated in the phone hacking scandal."

I mean, there's more (he was a once a contestant on The Apprentice), but you get the idea.

And not just ironically.
