FoxNews Basically Ignores Haiti ... Surprise, Surprise

Media Matters Reports:
"On January 13, Fox News' three top-rated programs for 2009 -- The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity, and Glenn Beck -- devoted a combined total of less than 7 minutes of coverage to the earthquake in Haiti, instead choosing to air such things as Beck's hour-long interview with Sarah Palin, Bill O'Reilly's discussion of Comedy Central host Jon Stewart, and Sean Hannity's advocacy for Massachusetts candidate Scott Brown's Senate campaign"

It should come as no surprise to anyone that an organization that promotes on-air personalities who spew some of the most vile, racially divisive and hateful rhetoric in a generations would limit coverage of a disaster involving so many black faces. After all, these are not the images that appeal to their audience. It might actually remind them of their humanity.

FauxNews no longer makes any attempt to veil the fact that their chief reason for existing is profit. Profit at any cost.
