    Red Cross Under Seige Because of NBC

    See it for yourself.

    NBC allowed these ignorant, hateful comments to go on-air, potentially alientating 1/2 of potential donors, just to get a political dig in at the President. I'm livid, not because of West's attack on the President, but becuase this will cost the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

    I just spoke to a Red Cross call center supervisor. Call centers have been deluged with complaints. They just released the following statement:

    WASHINGTON, Friday, September 02, 2005 — The American Red Cross is incredibly grateful for the support we’re receiving in the wake of the catastrophic events caused by Hurricane Katrina. We want to acknowledge the ongoing support of NBC-Universal, which aired a telethon tonight on behalf of the victims of this tragedy.

    During the telecast, a controversial comment was made by one of the celebrities. We would like the American public to know that our support is unwavering, regardless of political circumstances. We are a neutral and impartial organization, and support disaster victims across the country regardless of race, class, color or creed. We cannot, and we do not endorse any comments of a political nature.

    NBC just hurt poor people. I hope it was worth it to get in a few cheap shots at the president.

    Update: Since you asked:


    * NBC Contact Page. Reader Toni discovered an email address buried in a FAQ for NBC programming. nbcshows@nbcuni.com.
    * Red Cross Contact Page, or 1-800-HELP NOW.

    He's rapidly old news anyway.. his 2nd album is trash, only like 3 good songs on it.

    He's always been prone to public rages and temper tantrums though, just another spoiled celebrity with a platform to do good he won't ever appreciate. I wonder how many of those celebrities on these benefits can't stand George Bush but put that aside and sang/spoke their heart out for the victims and for the country.

    One would think that if you are 'donating' your talents to a charity, you would want the largest numbers to donate. :confused:

    I wonder how many people just turned it off and went onto other things-never calling the Red Cross? NBC was just wrong-they have delay and could have stopped that.

    Well I think it was live... they did cut it out of the time delayed West coast presentation....

    NBC should just open up its coffers and give about 20 million then right?

    this is the network that paid the stars of "Friends" a million or more an episode, i mean c'mon...

    You may be right, I don't know how that all works, though I believe it was at the Academy Awards awhile back, that they just went to commercials and changed one of the presenters?

    The left is going bonkers, but seems that many think it's ok. So we'll see what the future brings. I'm more and more convinced we are going to end up with a Hillary or her ilk in 2008.

    Yeah, but they are gaining the upper hand. Now GW is in all likelihood the lame duck they were hoping for. The left more than hates him and those that voted for him. Those that voted for him are also angry at what he's done and not done. The left is going to win next time, barring an event that does galvanize the country, which I do not even want to contemplate what that would have to be. :terror:
