Matthew Chance on Saif Gadhafi encounter: "He's free and he's driving around Tripoli"

CNN's Matthew Chance described his encounter with Moammer Gadhafi's son, Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, just hours ago on "Piers Morgan Tonight." It had originally been thought that he was in custody. "I asked him about where his father was, he said all his family was in Tripoli," Chance told Piers Morgan. "He invited me to get in the car and drive around Tripoli...it was quite incredible."

Chance talked about the misinformation from both sides. "Both sides have been exaggerating, both sides have been telling us untruths," he said.

    Piers,

    Thanks for the interview with Huntsman. While I have not made a decision on my choice(s) for the upcoming elections, the kinds of questions asked do provide me with information to make a decision. Be careful on the answer to being a running mate for someone else...make sure we focus on serving our country vs conceeding to lose. Also, choosing to serve doesn't mean agreement to have that person serve "for" you.

    I enjoy your show...it is refreshing television.

    Bernie

    Piers,

    I know you worked for CNN. But I'm disappointed that you're no better than other media people who keep pestering Presidential candidates with non-issues such as abortion and gay rights. These are the questions for voters screening gubernatorial candidates because it is the governor who decides on the legislations relating to these issues for his state, not the President. It is bad enough that both Democrats and Republicans placed their priorities in the wrong place while the country needs good leadership desperately. It makes matters worse when the media joins in this nonsensical game. Why don't you ask questions on how they are going to handle major issues facing the country such as our massive debt, unemployment, soaring healthcare costs, illegal immigration and wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. That will help us in making intelligent choices about the Presidential candidates.
