Need to Know News: Newt Gingrich lays off staff; More violence as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accepts peace plan

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 March 28, 2012 – Newt Gingrich lays off staff while he refocuses presidential bid, more violence emerges as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accepts peace plan and Magic Johnson part of group to buy Los Angeles Dodgers...

Newt Gingrich lays off staff, refocuses presidential bid: "Newt Gingrich has replaced his campaign manager and is laying off one-third of his staff, but has vowed to continue his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, a spokesman confirms to CNN."

• Reports of more violence emerge as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accepts peace plan: "A day after news broke that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accepted a plan to forge peace, fresh clashes broke out once again across Syria on Wednesday, opposition activists said."

• JetBlue plane diverted due to 'erratic' pilot: "The CEO of JetBlue Airways said Wednesday he has known the captain of a flight that made an emergency landing Tuesday for "a long time" - and that the man has always been a 'consummate professional.' Asked about the captain's reported erratic behavior that prompted the crew and passengers to subdue him mid-flight, Dave Barger described it as 'a medical situation.'"

Outcry mounts, answers few in Trayvon Martin shooting: "The parents of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen killed by a Hispanic man who claims self-defense, said Wednesday they have faith in authorities investigating the case and are patiently awaiting justice for their son's death."

Magic Johnson part of group to buy Los Angeles Dodgers: "A group that includes former basketball star Earvin "Magic" Johnson will acquire the Los Angeles Dodgers for $2 billion, the team said Tuesday night. The group will officially acquire the team, one of baseball's most storied franchises, after the deal is approved by the judge overseeing the Dodgers' bankruptcy."

    Newt does not get it does he? He failed all the Fact Check. He and his wife can go visit Sara Pailen.
