In the wake of the tragedy in Haiti here comes the real news, writ large on the MSNBC homepage
This is like the old joke about “airliner crashes in India …but no Americans were on board, so who gives a shit.” Not to diminish Christa Brelsford’s injury, but I assume that the Today show was unable to locate a spunky blonde Haitian to tell their inspirational story… soon to be a Lifetime movie.
Within days the Haitian earthquake story will begin to fade and the Today show will lose interest and then it can get back to doing what it does best; covering closer-to-home American tragedies.
Like Matt Lauer’s hairline.
Keep hope alive.
