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?
