The Hope for Haiti Now benefit concert aired last night with performances from Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Wyclef Jean and more.
A wide variety of broadcast, cable, radio, and internet outlets, including CNN and MSNBC, preempted their regularly scheduled prime-time programming to air the benefit concert/telethon to raise funds for Haiti earthquake relief. But one network in particular is receiving criticism for giving little coverage to the devastating earthquake in Haiti on its top-rated programs.
Fox News did NOT preempt its programming to air the benefit concert, instead broadcasting regular editions of The O’Reilly Factor and Hannity. Shocked?
You can still give to the cause by visiting hopeforhaitinow.org or by calling 1-877-99-HAITI and in case you missed it, check out a few of my favorite performances below:
