CNN host Piers Morgan has been dragged into the escalating phone-hacking scandal at the UK tabloid News of the World.
During the Parliament hearings, Tory MP Louise Mensch claimed Morgan had admitted in his book, "The Insider," that he used phone hacking to get stories when he was the editor of The Mirror, a competing tabloid, in 1996.
Morgan talked with "Extra's" Terri Seymour about the claims, denying ever using that practice at The Mirror.
"Absolutely not, absolutely not," Morgan told Seymour. "What she's trying to do is smear my good name. It certainly never happened at The Mirror when I was there, to my knowledge."
While testifying in a hearing on the phone-hacking scandal, media baron Rupert Murdoch, 80, was attacked on Tuesday afternoon by a protester with a white foam pie, only to have it slapped away by his 42-year-old wife, Wendi Murdoch.
Katie Couric tweeted about the incident, "Wendi Murdoch giving whole new meaning to the term tiger mother... insanity!"
Ashley Hebert got a taste of her suitors' hometown lives and was introduced to their families on Monday's episode. At the rose ceremony, she admitted it was difficult to make a decision, but gave roses to Ben, J.P. and Constantine, sending Ames packing.

Owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., the tab has been at the center of phone hacking charges, in which victims (including a teenage murder victim), celebrities, royalty and at least one man killed in the 2005 London bombing had their phones hacked via PIN numbers, allowing access to voicemails.
