    After seeing so much coverage about this Haiti thing, I said I need a break. Let me turn on Fox! I know they wont be talking about this too much.

    I just found out Billo, beck and hannity spent 7 minutes of prime time to Haiti coverage.

    Let me repeat that's, 7 minutes of prime time coverage from billo, beck and hannity.

    Between that and Rush saying we already gave to them, with our income tax, well, no wonder the right are so damn compassionate!

    I didn't realize Beck was prime time. I believe Greta devoted her entire show to covering the tragedy. I'm pretty sure most viewers are capable of changing the channel if they want continuous coverage. So how many minutes does one have to expose themselves to the looped images of devastation and destruction to be considered compassionate??

    More than 7 minutes. (By the way, hannity's contribution was almost a minute).

    Good grief. All of the noon hour was devoted to it. I know, I was watching it.

    When your policies are failing across the board, it becomes important to create distractions.
