    I was just flippin' through the stations last night.

    CNN was covering Haiti.

    MSNBC was covering Haiti.

    FoxNews was covering the Massachusetts Senate rate.

    Well really, what's more important to Americans?

    The disaster in Haiti or the Senate race?

    I watched the Fox report at 7, the lead story was haiti.

    Maybe you have a strange TV.

    Why would the Massachusetts senate race be important to Americans? I can see it being important in Massachusetts. I can see the result being of some importance to some Americans. But the vote isn't for nearly a week and most of it is bullshit politics as usual, with the media supercharging the issues as best fits their respective agendas.

    In any case, to say that it is more important to Americans in general that the death of tens, or possibly hundreds of thousands of people would be to give credence to the view that Americans are heartless, arrogant, insular and altogether too self-absorbed.

    I have not discussed the Massachusetts senate race with anyone. I have however discussed the tragic situation in Haiti.

    FWIW, the lead story on the Fox, CNN and MSNBC homepages right now is Haiti.

    I wonder why libtards feel the need to think they have the power to write the moral rules and decide what is and is not important to other people.. beats the hell outta me.

    Damn Obama. He obviously caused the earthquake in Haiti to distract Americans from the Massachusetts Senate race!

    Probably for the same reasons that some Republicans do.

    Thats weird I was watching those 3 last night and they were talking about Haiti on Shep smith on fox news and the MA senate race on CNN.

    Then later they were talking about haiti on cnn and scott brown on fox.

    I didn't turn on MSNBC for more than 2 min so i'm not sure about them.
