CNN's Piers Morgan was in the position few television interviewers like to be this week: on the other side of the microphone.
A British television channel on Thursday broadcast a documentary about Dr. Conrad Murray that has angered Michael Jackson's family, in which the doctor paints himself as a well-meaning physician entrapped by the needy star.
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch scrambled to London on Sunday to try to contain a scandal that caused him to close the weekly News of the World, Britain's largest-selling newspaper.
Steve Hewlett, a British media analyst and consultant, said Morgan's performance turned him "from the man who knows everything to the man who knows nothing."
"He's given everybody enough rope to hang him with," said Hewlett, presenter for BBC Radio's "The Media Show."
