Clips from Friday: Jon Lovitz on Obama's Nobel Peace Prize and BeBe Winans remembers Whitney Houston

On Friday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed actor, comedian and business owner Jon Lovitz back to the program to for a very lively discussion over taxes, the economy and President Barack Obama. Lovitz defended a recent Twitter post that included a photo of Obama holding his Nobel Peace Prize with a caption "Nobel Prize, you didn't earn that, somebody else made that happen."

"That's called sarcasm," said Lovitz. "The point is - the people say no, he did earn the Nobel Peace Prize. How did he earn it? They vote you the Nobel Peace Prize."

Musician Bebe Winans was also on the program Friday to clear up misconceptions about his close friend Whitney Houston. Winans noted that Houston was not "this difficult diva who lived life in a drug coma."

"Out of the 28 years that we knew each other, she never did drugs in front of me," said Winans. "I think all of us are taught, even when we're young, to display a different persona when you're in public than when you're in private."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Winans shares more about Houston and her life outside of the spotlight.

    A provision of ObamaCare is set to punish roughly two-thirds of U.S. hospitals evaluated by Medicare starting this fall over high readmission rates, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News.

    Starting in October, Medicare will reduce reimbursements to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates - which refers to patients who return within a month - by as much as 1 percent. The maximum penalty increases to 2 percent the following year and 3 percent in 2014.

    Why isn't MSDNC and CNN not reporting this!

    There is no recovery. Dont let the numbers fool you... they have been cooked for a long time now. Obama has wrecked the economy and added over 5 trillion to the deficit with nothing to show for it. In the first two years he could have passed any bill he wanted but didnt even think about jobs. His "laser like" focus was on the golf course and lavish vacations while Americans lost their jobs. He is the biggest clown to ever sit in the Presidency... and he is done come November. I just hope there is something left to recover.
