Morgan also got quite chatty about the subject on his Twitter, Tuesday.
“Rupert Murdoch's opening line: 'This is the most humbling day of my life.' Wow,” was the first of many tweets, some humorous, some not, that he sent during the hearing.
In one tweet, Morgan gave an insider’s view of Murdoch’s behavior during the hearing:
Nothing unusual in Rupert’s desk-whacking, He did that in every meeting I ever had with him. To convey both pleasure & displeasure #Murdoch
He commented on his own time at News of the World:
Rupert called me every week for 18ms on News of the World - rarely asked about anything but what stories we had that week. #Murdoch
I’ve never hacked a phone, told anyone to hack a phone, or published any stories based on the hacking of a phone.
And on the hearing’s fashions:
Have to presume all these MPs chose their best outfits for today. In which case, time to pitch “Westminster Fashion Nightmares?” #Murdoch
He had only one tweet about his friend Rebekah Brooks, the News Corps. exec who stepped down in the wake of the scandal and was arrested and released Sunday.
Rebekah Brooks (a great, and loyal friend) just been cut off from live #CNN USA coverage for President Obama speech. She won’t be happy.
He made his feelings on how the hearing went known:
’You’re shown immense guts, Mr Murdoch.’ Hysterical. This has all gone horribly wrong for the anti-Murdoch brigade. #Murdoch
The best part of the live-Twitterting was Alec Baldwin’s responses to some of the tweets. Yes, “30 Rock” actor Alec Baldwin.
Alec Baldwin had a reply for that: “...Is Murdoch a crook? You ARE kidding? He's like J. Edgar Hoover. Worse than a crook, as his wealth/power makes him seem sane.”
