UK regulator clears broadcaster over Piers Morgan's Meghan comments
Britain's media regulator has ruled that high-profile presenter Piers Morgan did not breach the broadcasting code in his criticism of Prince Harry's wife Meghan Markle on ITV's "Good Morning Britain" breakfast show earlier this year.
The programme attracted more than 41,000 complaints about Morgan's comments on Meghan's Oprah Winfrey interview, including from Meghan herself. Morgan left the show following the row.
"Our decision is that overall the programme contained sufficient challenge to provide adequate protection and context to its viewers," Ofcom said in a statement. "The programme did not breach the Ofcom Broadcasting Code."
