This isn’t the first time Morgan, who loves to sensationalize and embellish, has been at the center of a journalistic ethics controversy. He was sacked from his position as editor of the Daily Mirror in 2004 for faking pictures of British soldiers in Iraq allegedly abusing a prisoner – photos that British Ministry of Defense officials said needlessly endangered the lives of British troops deployed at the time. According to reports, the paper issued a statement saying it had been the victim of Morgan’s “calculated and malicious hoax,” and that the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment – the unit singled out by the Daily Mirror – had been “vindicated” by Morgan’s dismissal.
