Need to Know News: Gadhafi regime 'crumbling' as rebels battle for Tripoli; rebels claim 3 of Gadhafi's sons captured

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For August 22, 2011 – NATO fears Moammar Gadhafi may strike at civilians, rebels battle for Tripoli, rebels claim 3 of Gadhafi's sons captured...

Gadhafi regime 'crumbling' as rebels battle for Tripoli: "Six months after a ragtag group of poorly trained rebels set out to topple the Libyan regime, the fighters appeared Monday to be on the brink of ending Moammar Gadhafi's 42-year rule."

• Rebels claim 3 of Gadhafi's sons captured: "Rebel leaders said early Monday that they had captured three of embattled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's sons - Saif al-Islam, Saadi and Mohammed - during their siege of Tripoli. "As for the other four sons, we think they are either hiding or they have run away," said Guma El-Gamaty, the Britain-based coordinator for Libya's Transitional National Council."

• NATO fears Gadhafi may strike at civilians strike at civilians: "The 42-year rule of Moammar Gadhafi appeared on the verge of collapse Monday, with rebel supporters making it to the same Tripoli square where regime loyalists had congregated for month."

• Oil market's 'knee jerk reaction' to Libya: "Oil prices were mixed Monday as Moammar Gadhafi's regime appeared to be closer to tottering on the brink of defeat. Brent oil, which is tied to the European market, dropped 1% to $107.55 a barrel, while U.S. crude prices rose more than 1% to $83.46 a barrel."

Rebel government gears up for role of 'main player' in Libya: "It will take 18 to 20 months to create a political framework for a new government, a Britain-based coordinator for Libya's Transitional National Council said Monday. The transitional council's primary job is to stabilize the country and conduct temporary council elections, Guma El-Gamaty told CNN."

    It appears that in an effort to Scoop and gain credibility for their coverage of the lives of celebrities, some media resort to “predicting, anticipating and speculation” on events in the lives of people in entertainment.

    In spite of repeated denials and lawsuits, these outlets persist.

    Our family friends and fans care deeply that our intimate relationships remain solid and intact and today’s libelous report about our relationship has hurt and affected many many people. We are appalled that our children were not considered before the rumors were put in print.

    If Jennifer Aniston or Beyonce are trying to have a baby, that is a private matter that only their trusted family or friends will know. That information will not be made public.

    Leave Halle Berry’s daughter alone. Do not speculate about my family

    Our fans appreciate our work and are entertained by our work. They respect our privacy.

    You will hear from our lawyers.

    What do you expect from Piers Morgan, a former tabloid hack? Morgan was an entertainment reporter for The Sun (1989–94), and editor of News of the World (1994–95) and the Daily Mirror (1995–04). He did plenty of damage to people's reputations at all of them, and laughed about it all the way to the bank. Lying, exaggerati­ng, going for the jugular...­the whole ball o' wax.

    After having practically been run out of Britain on a rail, Morgan took Simon Cowell's advice and moved to the U.S. where American viewers don't really know his tawdry tabloid history. Now Morgan's sordid past is being exposed along with every other low life snarling jackal at NOTW, etc. Without a public acknowledg­ment–inde­ed, an apology for deceiving the public during his years as an editor for not one but three notorious British tabloids–­I don't think Morgan will ever be able to wash the stink off himself from being mentored by Rupert Murdoch and Kelvin Mackenzie, both repulsive yellow journalist­s. Now he's trotting himself out as a quality but "dangerous­" mainstream interviewe­r on CNN. Shame on CNN for hiring this disreputab­le and lame excuse for a journalist­. It’s a sad day for journalism when Piers Morgan is considered “quality journalism­.”
