Need to Know News: GOP hopefuls to battle at last debate before Florida primary; Public memorial to celebrate Joe Paterno

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 January 26, 2012 – GOP hopefuls to battle at last debate before Florida primary, Penn State to pay tribute to Joe Paterno at public memorial and Demi Moore seeks treatment...

• GOP hopefuls to battle at last debate before Florida primary: "All four candidates will share the stage Thursday night for the debate at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, which is being hosted by CNN, the Republican Party of Florida and the Hispanic Leadership Network, a center-right advocacy group. Wolf Blitzer, anchor of CNN's "The Situation Room," will moderate the forum, which starts at 8 p.m. ET."

Public memorial to celebrate Joe Paterno: "Thousands will attend a public memorial for Joe Paterno on Thursday, a day after mourners lined the streets to watch the hearse carrying the legendary Penn State coach drive through campus to his final resting place. Throngs of students, fans and alumni tossed flowers and wept Wednesday as his funeral procession rolled past Beaver Stadium, where he paced the sidelines for decades."

• At least 12 killed in Iraq bomb attacks : "At least a dozen people were killed Thursday in bomb attacks in a city near Baghdad and the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk, police officials said. Police in Baghdad said 10 people were killed, including two women and three children, when insurgents placed bombs around a house in the city of Musayyeb, about 70 kilometers (43 miles) south of the capital."

Good Samaritan shot, dies beside young sons: “A 44-year-old New Orleans man died in front of his two sons Wednesday after he responded to a woman's screams and was shot by an apparent carjacker, according to police and family members. Harry "Mike" Ainsworth was with his two sons, ages 9 and 10, as the boys were waiting for a morning school bus, Ainsworth's brother, Bill, told CNN affiliate WWL.”

Demi Moore seeks treatment, drops out of 'Lovelace': "Demi Moore was slated to portray Gloria Steinem in the Linda Lovelace biopic, "Lovelace," but it seems that's no longer a go. A rep for the 49-year-old actress tells CNN that she is not working on the film. Moore's rep adds that the actress, who recently separated from her husband of six years, Ashton Kutcher, has been dealing with stress."

    Soros on WEF sounds like gloom and doom ! Economic deterioration and a process of political and social disintegration will mutually reinforce one another.Don't speculate against the franc and go out on a limb on the SNB. European Union needs urgent reforms.Dire warnings of impending economic social collapse ? The WEF's risk report identifies myriad interconnecting problems that threaten to plunge the world into a dystopian nighmare of riots and revolution.....Christine Lagarde sounds pretty upbeat ? World on the brink of a 1930's style depression.Soros not betting against S Fr1.20 ceiling against the euro and he retired from hedge fund industry.What does Geithner have to say and he looked a mess and mad in a picture as Einstein. and check it out CNN ! What's going on ?

    While the redesign of the site is cute, there hgesiht responsibility is to the information they broadcast to the largest audience. That is still TV. And I must say that CNN is increasingly incomplete and unsatisfactory on their coverage of the news. I am actually a big fan of the content available online for there Latino in America series. However what they broadcasted for the largest audiences was terribly incomplete and unoriginal. Cute site, but substance is king. so far I will judge them as a bit of smoke and mirrors.
