In the wake of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, first responders seem to be TV news celebrity anchors and reporters. It’s good to know Anderson Cooper and fellow news stars are first on the scene, providing first hand accounts of the mass human suffering. Especially gratifying is the sight of NBC’s weather clown Al Roker, (2008 host of Celebrity Family Feud !) reporting live wearing a red baseball cap and tan military-style shirt telling us that there is widespread chaos and devastation. Thanks, Al.

Rupert Murdoch has just announced that a pilot celebrity reality tv show is in progress called ” If you don't like me, go to Haiti”. First group of celeb-scum expected to participate are Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, Jon Voit, and Ron Cristi. All will be vying for the top prize for accurately guessing the death toll attributed to the men, women, and children of Haiti”s “PACT WITH THE DEVIL”. Ron Cristi is considered the dark horse favorite despite the fact that his count will surely be doubled that of his closest competitor.
