Need to Know News: China's 'incredible' Ye denies doping allegations; India hit by second, even larger power outage

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 July 31, 2012 – China's 'incredible' Ye Shiwen denies doping allegations, India hit by second, even larger power outage and Yannick Agnel, Missy Franklin and Matt Grevers win gold on bad night for Ryan Lochte...

• China's 'incredible' Ye Shiwen denies doping allegations: "Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen has strongly denied that she's a drugs cheat following a series of record-breaking swims at the Olympics in the past few days. 'My achievements derive from diligence and hard work, I will never use drugs. Chinese athletes are clean,' Ye told reporters late Monday."

• India hit by second, even larger power outage: "India suffered its second huge, crippling power failure in two days Tuesday, depriving as much as half of the vast and populous country, or up to 600 million people, of electricity and disrupting transport networks."

In Poland, Mitt Romney heralds economic freedom: "Mitt Romney's speech in Warsaw Tuesday – his last on a week-long foreign tour – offered effusive praise for Poland, the country that has proved to be the smoothest stop on his three-nation trip."

• Do the Olympics cost too much for host cities: "Hosting the Olympic Games is a lot like throwing the world's largest - and most expensive - party. The costs are legion. And most of it happens on the taxpayer dime."

Missy Franklin and Matt Grevers win gold on bad night for Ryan Lochte: "American medal hope Ryan Lochte struggled to keep up with his rivals as he finished fourth. The U.S. did enjoy some success in the pool later, with two consecutive gold medals ensuring they ended the day second in the medal table."

    The denuclearization of South Asia (Subcontinent) particularly India is imperative.
    Quid pro quo transfer of nuclear technology by USA to third world countries such as India needs to be opposed on moral grounds. Billions of people live in that neighborhood and would be at risk from such catastrophes which I am sure the American people would not like to be a party to. We are all well aware that that region is prone to floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, power outages and of course terrorism placing such nuclear installations at tremendous risks. US Congress is urged to reconsider and cancel all the agreements for the transfer of such technologies due “Force Majeure”.

    Definitely consider that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be at the internet the simplest factor to have in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as folks consider worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , folks could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

    I was watching this Piers Morgan TV show this evening. That was the interview with Michael Johnson. While Mr Johnson was commenting the Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen's performance, Pier Morgan was raising his voice saying " ...cheating..shameful...they should not come to Olympics..." several times. His statement was referring to that Chinese swimmer and the badminton team. I thought it was an interview for comment from the guest , not from the TV host, Pier Morgan. I was irritated from Morgan's comment because it showed how much prejudice he has towards Chinese athelates. I hope Morgan can leave the adjudication to the judges of the Olympic game. Shameful Pier Morgan.
