Need to Know News: Obama pushes back speech to Congress; AT&T and T-Mobile merger faces major roadblock

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 September 1, 2011 – Gadhafi's foreign minister surrenders to rebels, Katia becomes a hurricane in Atlantic, is the AT&T and T-mobile deal dead?

• Obama accepts GOP request to push back speech to Congress: "President Barack Obama on Wednesday agreed to move his scheduled special address to a joint session of Congress back one day - from September 7 to September 8 - after consultations with House Speaker John Boehner, the White House said Wednesday night."

• AT&T and T-Mobile: Is the deal dead? "The U.S. Department of Justice wants to roadblock AT&T's merger with T-Mobile. But does that mean the deal is off? Welcome to uncharted territory. The kind of lawsuit that the Justice Department filed against AT&T is an extreme rarity."

• Gadhafi's foreign minister surrenders to rebels: "As Libya's National Transitional Council meets Thursday with international leaders in Paris, the rebels chalked up another victory at home: the surrender of a key member of Moammar Gadhafi's circle."

Hurricane Katia churns in Atlantic: "Less than a weekafter Irene ravaged much of the East Coast, Hurricane Katia roared to life in the central Atlantic with winds of 75 mph, the National Hurricane Center said."

• 'Hangover 2' stuntman claims brain damage doubling for Ed Helms: "An Australian stunt actor is suing Warner Bros. studio claiming he suffered permanent brain damage while working as Ed Helms' stunt double for the filming of "Hangover 2," court documents said. Scott McLean, a veteran of dozens of movies and TV shows, was in a medically induced coma for two months after a high-speed, head-on collision on the set in Bangkok, Thailand, on December 17, 2010."

    I really don’t need another lecture from Obama, I need him to get off the golf field, get off his and his wife’s everlasting vacations and get to work getting rid of the tariffs China imposes on our USA made export products while we allow their cheap garbage import products to flood our markets tariff free, then we can retool our manufacturing complex, hire back the greatest workforce ever (the men and women of America) and begin to get this country back to the greatness we all once shared.

    Obama tracks down and takes out bin Laden, sometning GW was unable to do, without GOP involvement. Every few weeks another high level al-Kaida leader is taken out and it is said to be near finished. He works with the EU to oust Khadaffi over GOP objections. Now because he delays a speech one day he's weak. Gimme a break! This dude is the meanest sheriff in town.

    Breaking story to be released soon that involves a cover up of the AT&T CEO and presidents. Details of their plot to kill a customer.

    This could stop the AT&T T-Mobile merger in it's tracks. Also stir lawsuits including stock holders suing the AT&T board of directors.

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he just bought me lunch because I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch! "Never let inexperience get in the way of ambition." by Terry Josephson.
