||Fox News Did Not Air Hope For Haiti Telethon

Now get this, on the Friday night Factor Bill O'Reilly talked about how great Fox News is, how high their ratings are, and how great a job everyone at Fox did in their reporting on the Haiti earthquake. O'Reilly even hammered the people who criticized Fox for their lack of prime-time reporting on the Earthquake on Wednesday night.
So what does Fox do when the Hope For Haiti Telethon is on from 8pm to 10pm Friday night, they ignored it, and instead aired their regular programming, the O'Reilly Factor, and Hannity. What did CNN and MSNBC do, they showed every minute of the telethon.
Yes Fox News was the only cable news network to not show the telethon. And not only did they not show it, neither O'Reilly or Hannity said one word about it, or told anyone to watch it and donate money. Because it was on at the same time their shows were on and they wanted to get the ratings. Talk about low life scum, O'Reilly and Hannity are at the top of the list.
Over at CNN and MSNBC their 8 to 10 anchors allowed the network to air the Haiti Telethon. Not at Fox, Billy and Hannity had to do their regular shows so they could get their ratings, and to hell with the people in haiti, or the Haiti Telethon.
I have to say this is a new low for O'Reilly, Hannity, and Fox News. I counted 19 tv stations that aired it, even the Comedy Channel showed it, but not Fox News. No coverage at all, nothing, not even a mention. Almost every tv network we have showed it, except for Fox News.
Talk about an outrage, this is it. Then O'Reilly has the nerve to say his show and Fox have done a good job in reporting on Haiti. When they did not even show the fricking Haiti Telethon, they could not cancel their regular programming for two lousy hours to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake, and that is pretty damn sad.
Here is my message to Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and the Fox News Network. You should be ashamed, how do you sleep at night. How can you ignore the Haiti Telethon, when all the other cable news networks showed every minute of it. Then on top of that, not even mention it, or tell anyone to watch it and make donations. You are scum, all of you, you are nothing but greedy right-wing a-holes.
And I mean every word of what I just wrote. People say I am outraged at this or that, but this is a real outrage. And every person who works for Fox is a joke, a partisan joke. You should be ashamed to call yourself a News Network, you should be ashamed to call yourself Americans, and you should be shamed to cash your dirty paychecks.
