BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy First up, world news. The wave of anti-government protest is reaching Libya. Al Jazeera says demonstrators had gathered in front of a police headquarters in the early hours Wednesday. The police reportedly used tear gas, batons and hot water to disperse the mob. Libya’s ruler, Muammar al-Gaddafi has led the country for 41 years. The World Bank says food prices are at dangerous levels, pushing 44 million more people into poverty since last June. BBC reports from a protest on food prices in Bolivia. “Here in Bolivia, sugar prices have doubled since January, and many other basic food have risen by as much as 40 percent more. Freddy Vilca: “The people are dying of hunger. Today we are fighting against this increase in prices." “An echo of a protest being heard in developing countries all over the world.” In U.S. news — the budget wars are taking the spotlight as the GOP threatens of government shutdown. ABC says the fight has three prongs: first, on what programs to cut next year, second, whether to raise the debt ceiling, and third, whether the federal government will shutdown next month. If the Congress fails to act and agree on a budget, a shutdown is possible. And in business -- Bernie Madoff is serving 150 years behind bars for his record-breaking Ponzi scheme, but willing to reveal more than ever -- as he opens up in the New York Times. Madoff is on the record and claims the investors under his scheme were “complicit” and “had to know” something was up. The Times says he “pointed to the ‘willful blindness’ of many banks and... their failure to examine discrepancies between Madoff’s regulatory filings. In entertainment -- Actor Frankie Muniz’s hopes for Valentine’s Day backfired when the Malcolm in the Middle star allegedly pulled a gun during a heated argument with his girlfriend. HIs significant other Elycia Marie Turnbow claimed the actor got out a gun and threatened to put it to his head. When police arrived, they separated the couple and sent Muniz to the hospital. A rep for both parties tells TMZ, “there was an argument, but denies a gun played any part.” On Twitter the couple tweeted liked it never happened -- as they got ready to celebrate V-Day.

BY TRACY PFEIFFER ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy As anti-government demonstrations sweep through the Middle East, reports are coming in of protesters clashing with police in the north African country of Libya -- but conflicting accounts of the day make it difficult to determine what’s going to happen next. Al Jazeera explains the situation, which didn’t necessarily start as an anti-government demonstration. “They’ve come to demonstrate against the arrest of human rights lawyer Fethi Tarbel, but panic sweeps the crowd, then gunshots ring out. ... After dark, the protesters regroup outside the city’s security directorate. Their chants turn against the government and the 41-year-long rule of Muammar Gaddafi.” Col. Gaddafi is the Arab world’s longest-serving leader, though he isn’t exactly a dictator -- Libya is officially a government by committee. One writer for the BBC describes it as a quote- “police state” that quashes dissent and other political parties. (Video: The Telegraph) The state-controlled media reportedly ignored the protests, instead reporting on a pro-Gaddafi rally in quote- “several other cities.” And an anonymous Libyan source dismissed the demonstrations as a revolution to CNN, saying... "’...there is nothing serious here … These are just young people fighting each other.’ The source said the clashes were ‘not political’ and that ‘Libya is not Egypt... This is not an organized revolution.’” But the director of an anti-regime website in the United States tells France 24, the demonstrations are just getting started. EDWARDS: “The protests also spread to other towns, including Tripoli and al Kufra.” ABDULLA DARRAT: “The protests are building steam and the news is spreading throughout Libya. Keep in mind that all of this happened late in the evening and early morning hours, so most a lot of Libyans will be waking up to news of what happened in Benghazi.” EDWARDS: “Meanwhile, a number of Facebook groups have been set up calling for a day of protests on Thursday. This one has over 9,000 members.” So will the world see a repeat of Tunisia and Egypt in Libya? A writer for the BBC says, it’s possible -- but it might be more difficult. “Libya has had protests before, successfully quashed by the powerful security forces. Whatever happens in the coming protests it will be increasingly difficult for the ageing and erratic Col Gaddafi to resist the calls for political freedom, civil rights, a more equitable sharing of the nation's wealth and a move towards a genuine democracy.” Keep in mind news media have been taking videos of the protest with a grain of salt, calling most of them quote- “unconfirmed.” Stick with Newsy for more on Libya and other world headlines.

BY SAMUEL JOSEPH You're watching multisource world video news analysis from Newsy. Twenty-four dead. And it may not be over. As the so-called “Days of Rage” spread across the Middle East, they are met with different responses. In Libya, long ruled by dictator Muammar Gaddafi, it was out-and-out violence. CAROLINE MALONE: “Sources suggest Libyan security forces shot and killed demonstrators. Some of the worst casualty numbers were reported in the city of Beida, where according to Human Rights Watch, hospital staff put out the call for additional help as they became overwhelmed with injuries.” And that’s not all. Channel 4 News spoke with a nurse in a Libyan hospital who says not even the hospital zones are safe. “...last night, armed men, wearing ‘military or police’ uniforms, which the nurse had ‘not seen before’ entered the hospital at around 2am, and carried away three patients who were involved and injured in the protest...” And unlike the protests in Egypt that successfully ousted that country’s president - BBC says Gaddafi enjoys more support in Libya -- at least in the capitol. BENJAMIN BARBER: “The fact is in Libya, in Tripoli, where Colonel Gaddafi and his family are most of the time, there isn’t anything like the anti-Gadhafi feeling that you get in Benghazi 2,000 kilometers away over east towards Egypt where the rival clans, for 25 or 30 years, have seen Gadhafi as a tribal enemy and trying to make trouble for him.” And Human Events suggests - also unlike the Egyptian protesters - Libya’s opposition isn’t likely to see much U.S. backing. “...Libya’s demonstrators can’t count on much support from the Obama Administration... The Libyan people are going to have to display some real progress against the Qaddafi regime before President Obama will suddenly declare he’s been 100% behind them all along...” Rallies renewed Friday after the funerals for the protesters who died. So far it is unknown if there have been any further deaths. 'Like Newsy' on Facebook for daily updates. Get more multisource world video news analysis from Newsy. Transcript by Newsy

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In world news — pressure continues to mount for Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. Sources including the BBC say Gaddafi’s number two man, Libya’s interior minister, is now among top officials who have joined the opposition. The Arab League has now put Libya on suspension. Still, Gaddafi remains defiant, yesterday saying, he would rather “die a martyr” than resign. The U.S. and European nations are now sending ferries and planes to evacuate their citizens from the violence-ridden country. Still in world news — an update on the Christchurch, New Zealand, earthquake. New Zealand Herald says the recent earthquake is likely to be New Zealand’s worst natural disaster yet. The Civil Defence Ministry has declared a state of National Emergency, the first for a non-military situation. The death toll is now up to 75, while 300 others are feared trapped. In U.S. news — the ACLU and a Muslim group filed a lawsuit yesterday, claiming an FBI informant who infiltrated a mosque has violated constitutional rights — targeting Muslims for surveillance simply because of their religion. The Washington Post says the lawsuit is filed against the FBI and seven agents and supervisors. The suit seeks three things: class action status, unspecified damages and a court order instructing the FBI to destroy or return the information the informant collected. Also in the U.S. - Rahm Emanuel is the new mayor of the Windy City. Last night he accepted his new position while breaking away from his rivals with 55% of the total votes. “Thank you Chicago for this humbling victory. All I can say, you sure know how to make a guy feel at home (cheering)." (Video: CNN) CNN reports the former White House Chief of Staff especially thanked his former employer President Obama for his support and praised former mayor Richard Daley as a “hard act to follow”. Emanuel says he’s ready to fix problems in the nation’s third largest city, including reforming the pension system and lowering high rates of crime. In entertainment -- singer Rihanna rocked the stage at this year’s NBA All-Star game, but her performance was not music to every one’s ears. Access Hollywood reports Rihanna was slated to perform at a charity event for Donald Trump the same night as the game. She cancelled her gig with the Donald due to illness, but really upset the Hotel mogul when she performed at the All-Star game only hours later. But Rihanna wasn’t the ‘Only Girl in the World’ for Trump, he found Jennifer Hudson as a last minute replacement. Perez Hilton notes Trump publicly responded to the affair saying Rihanna’s bail was insulting to everyone and showed a lack of respect. A rep for RiRi fired back. She was under strict doctor’s orders after battling bronchitis and feared losing her voice if she attended the event.

TUESDAY, FEB. 22/ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO, NEWSY: “Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi went on state television on Tuesday to announce he has no intention to of resigning. Even more, he would rather die as a martyr.” After what international press deemed a week of brutal crackdowns on protesters -- Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi pledged Friday to double salaries for some government workers -- and offered a $400 bonus to every Libyan family. But he’s not the only embattled leader this week hoping that money talks. THURSDAY, FEB. 24/MEGAN MURPHY, NEWSY: “Saudi King Abdullah returned to the nation after being out on medical leave- bringing back $36 billion in gifts for the people.

BY JESSICA HORD You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Muammar Gaddafi is blaming al-Qaeda for the protests in Libya. Yes, al-Qaeda. “The requests are not their’s the requests come from Bin Laden.” Gaddafi is claiming militants are using teenagers, slipping them quote, “hallucinogenic pills in their coffee with milk, like Nescafe. The National Post mocks the statement -- saying... “Now that’s scary: Libyan students drink Nescafe? Is there, like, no Starbucks in Tripoli?” The newspaper isn’t the only one getting a few punch lines out of Gaddafi’s statement. Jon Stewart got in a jab or two. “Wait a second, maybe it’s true.” “This might be a good time for the United States to slowly back out of the room. Because that is some Alien vs. Predator shit.” So is this a big bad battle of two villains -- or just more batty blabbering from a man whose days in power are numbered? ABC News: “The mind of a man who seems increasingly wild and unhinged. A rambling Muammar Gaddafi unleashed another bizarre rant...” MSNBC: “Gaddafi claimed that al-Qaeda is responsible for the protests, really?" CNN: “Today Gaddafi made another speech and if you thought his rant on Tuesday -- this rant -- seemed strange? Well the one today was even more bizarre. Full of ramblings and lies...” But was it all ramblings and lies? The Hindustan Times reports al-Qaeda cheering on the protesters in a statement made on jihadist forums. “We declare our support and aid to the Libyan revolution in its legitimate demands, and we assure our people in Libya that we are with you and we will not let you down.” According to Al Jazeera -- protesters say their demands have nothing to do with al-Qaeda.

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource headline news analysis from Newsy This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. First, world news — Libyan authorities are again blaming Islamic radicals and the West for conspiring to cause chaos in the country. The New York Times reports authorities made the statement during a conference for foreign journalists. Today, world leaders, including U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, are set to meet in Geneva to increase pressure on Muammar Gaddafi. As many as 1,000 people are believed to have been killed in nearly two weeks of protest. Still in world news — Oman became the latest Middle East nation to see anti-government protests in its streets. London’s Financial Times reports young people are still blocking two intersections to an industrial port city, as the government steps up its effort to defuse the crisis. On Sunday night, the Omani sultan announced the creation of 50,000 more jobs for Omanis and monthly unemployment benefits of $390. The protest is entering its third day. In U.S. news -- Speaker of the House John Boehner says he wants the country to take a deep look at itself from the inside -- calling the nation’s trillion dollar debt a “moral threat”. Politico reports Boehner made the comments while speaking in Nashville on Sunday. The GOP House Speaker saying it is“immoral to bind our children to as leeching and destructive a force as debt.” It’s the latest move in the war of words between Boehner and President Obama. The Daily Mail notes, while the U.S. government is on the brink of a government shutdown, and the economy is at risk of gridlock if the two party leaders do not find a common ground. Boehner did not offer much of a solution to the nation’s economic crisis, but he did tell the country -- you "better start praying.” In U.S. news — the last living U.S. World War I veteran passed away on Sunday. Sources including CNN say Frank Buckles died of natural causes at his home in West Virginia. He served as an ambulance driver during the war, and rose to the ranks of corporal when it ended. Buckles was 110. In entertainment -- The star-studded Kodak Theatre played host to the the 83rd Academy Awards, but if you weren’t the one holding an Oscar -- you might have been disappointed. The bubbly Anne Hathaway and a confident James Franco hosted Hollywood’s premiere night, but didn’t impress E! Online. It reports the night was full of follies and a few awkward F-bombs. A prolonged monologue by Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas took away from of glitz and glamour as well. Fortunately last night’s winners didn’t notice. Colin Firth took home honors for Best Male Lead in The King’s Speech and Natalie Portman was the Best Female Lead in Black Swan. Christian Bale was recognized as the best supporting male role for his portray of Dicky Eklund in The Fighter. Oscar night’s biggest winners included The Social Network which nabbed three wins, but its British rival The King’s Speech came out ahead with four win wins -- including Best Picture of the Year.

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In world news — an update on Libya, where fierce fighting between rebels and Muammar Gaddafi’s forces continue to bring the country closer to a full-scale civil war. Sources including the Wall Street Journal say Gaddafi’s attacks on a rebel-held town over the weekend failed to win the government much ground — signifying the likelihood of a prolonged battle in the country. Meanwhile the UN has appointed a special envoy to Libya — Jordan’s former foreign minister -- to assess the situation. Still in world news — U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates arrived in Afghanistan earlier today on surprise visit. On Gates’ agenda is a meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and evaluating the number of U.S. troops to withdraw in July. The New York Times reports, American commanders are mixed on the current situation on the ground in Afghanistan. Improvements were made in some of the nation’s southern provinces, though security in the east and north is still worsening. Gates’s visit comes as Karzai voiced criticism against American forces for the accidental killing of nine Afghan children last Tuesday. In science news -- Human-kind might not be alone. One NASA scientist claims to have discovered the fossil remains of extra terrestrial bacteria in a rare meteorite. The scientist is Dr. Richard B. Hoover, who for more than ten years has collected meteorites from around the world. Fox News gained an exclusive look at the out-of-this-world research which is set to be published in March’s Journal of Cosmology. The organism is closely related to bacteria under our own feet on Earth and Hoover says there might be more on comets, moons, and other celestial bodies. Fox asked other scientists to weigh in -- almost all of whom said they’ve seen it before and most scientists would claim his discovery -- impossible. Until the scientific community can prove otherwise, the findings will be considered “a potential signature of life.” In entertainment -- Lindsay Lohan’s recent brush with the law led to charges of felony grand theft -- but now the case is being called into question. The actress and her lawyer insist she never stole the $2,500 necklace. Still don’t believe her? Entertainment Tonight has exclusive surveillance video from the jewelry store in Venice Beach. Of course -- you’ll have to wait to see it. The show will air Monday night. ET admits there’s not much to see except LiLo trying on the jewelry. Sources tell TMZ the Mean Girls star feels she will be “vindicated” by the report. Lohan insists the store was trying to make a a quick buck off of her rap sheet.
