Former News of the World Editor Feared for Safety

Piers Morgan, the former editor of the Daily Mirror and the now-defunct News of the World, will testify before Parliament next week, his spokesman confirmed Thursday. Meanwhile, in a blockbuster day of testimony, Colin Myler, another onetime editor of NotW, said Thursday that he felt there were “bombs under the newsroom floor”—an avalanche of information he was not aware of—after he took over for embattled erstwhile editor Andy Coulson. Myler assumed the helm for Coulson in 2007 after he resigned following private investigator Glenn Mulcaire's being sent to jail. Myler said that the “for Neville” email that has been alleged to prove that the hacking scandal was not just limited to one person was one of those bombs.
