Need to Know News: Nation pauses to remember Pearl Harbor; New Sandusky accuser steps forward

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 December 7, 2011 – Nation pauses to remember Pearl Harbor, new Jerry Sandusky accuser steps forward, Alec Baldwin gets kicked off an airplane...

• Nation pauses to remember Pearl Harbor: “Survivors of the surprise Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor will remember the 2,400 people who lost their lives 70 years ago Wednesday. The annual commemoration in Hawaii begins at 7:40 a.m. (12:40 p.m. ET ) at the Pearl Harbor visitor center."

New Sandusky accuser steps forward: "A 19-year-old man stepped forward with claims that Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky gave him whiskey and sexually abused him in 2004, the accuser's attorney said. The man said Sandusky abused him during a single incident at the university's football building, according to attorney Chuck Schmidt of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania."

• Putin critics vow to continue protests despite mass arrests: “Opponents of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin vowed Wednesday to continue protesting the weekend's election results despite the arrests of at least 250 demonstrators Tuesday. More than 11,000 people have already said on Facebook they would demonstrate in Moscow on Saturday, which would be one of the largest opposition protests in the Russian capital in years."

• Obama talks new income inequality rhetoric, old policies: “President Barack Obama traveled to the heart of Republican Kansas on Tuesday, where he presented Americans with a choice: a "fair shot" with him, or a return to 'you're on your own economics.' Obama firmly embraced the rhetoric of income inequality, and laid out a plan to rebuild the middle class.”

Game addiction costs Alec Baldwin his airline seat: “Alec Baldwin's addiction to the cell phone game 'Words with Friends' got him booted from an American Airlines plane parked at a Los Angeles International Airport gate Tuesday afternoon, the actor's spokesman said. 'He loves WWF so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it, but he has already boarded another AA flight,' spokesman Matthew Hiltzik said in an e-mail to CNN.”

    Heard that Donald Trump will be on Pier's show...rt after I heard Obama declare something like "their policy of letting middle class fend for themselves aint gonna work."....rt after that I heard there are more people on food stamps than any time in our history ...rt after that I heard about couple milking Gov out of millions of fraudulent dollars via food stamp program. I am a retired engineer baby boomer...a part of silent majority. My ancesters were Cajuns driven out of Nova Scotia by a corrupt government official of the British empire. Guess what....my ancestors just as each and every one of your forefathers "had to fend for themselves". My suggestion to restore values and a business like air about our country is to have a Newt/Donald ticket....can't see how running this great country like a business can loose...!!!!
