    With the apologies and large financial settlements coming today from Rupert Murdoch's media group over the British phone and email hacking cases, I hope Piers Morgan will admit his knowledge and involvement of this deplorable and illegal journalistic fishing expedition. It is a very black cloud over the credibility of Piers Morgan and CNN by not having him come clean on his knowledge and managerial approval of the criminal activity. It's time to show your integrity by stepping up and being honest.
