It's a horrible, unspeakable tragedy that gets you right in the core of your humanity. The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere is flattened by a huge earthquake. Hundreds of thousands killed, thousands of children orphaned, more than 1.5 million now homeless. Bodies of the dead are lain in the street to be bulldozed into mass graves while machete-wielding gangs fight for the scarce resources. The pain, the fear, the sense of hopelessness is palpable.

It is now incumbent upon all of us, as fellow humans, to lend a hand and help the Haitians. And in a rare show of humanity, broadcast and cable television outlets have agreed to pre-empt their regular programming to air the Hope For Haiti Now Global TV Telethon.

Except for Fox News Channel.

Our crack C&L team has checked around the dial and compiled a list of channels participating:

CBS

ABC

NBC

CW

FOX

TNT

Weather Channel

MSNBC

CNBC

CNN

HBO

Showtime

Major League Baseball Network

Style Network

E! Entertainment Network

ReelzChannel

TNT

Comedy Central

Oxygen

Soap Opera channel

Bravo

National Geographic Channel

Sleuth

G4

CMT

TV1

BET

MTV

MTV2

VH1

GMC

FUSE

Current

PBS

It's even streaming live on IMDb, Hulu and YouTube.

But not for FNC or their sister business channel. They're showing Billo and crew.

I guess that tells you exactly what you need to know about Fox's responsibility as a "news" channel.

The Hope For Haiti fundraiser will distribute donations to the following organizations: The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, United Nations World Food Programme, Oxfam America, Partners in Health, the Red Cross, Unicef, and Wyclef’s Yele Haiti Foundation. If you have not yet donated, please consider doing so now.
