seven minutes v. two hours

the american red cross estimates between 45,000 - 50,000 dead in haiti, and what is fox talking about?
On January 13, Fox News' three top-rated programs for 2009 -- The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity, and Glenn Beck -- devoted a combined total of less than 7 minutes of coverage to the earthquake in Haiti, instead choosing to air such things as Beck's hour-long interview with Sarah Palin, Bill O'Reilly's discussion of Comedy Central host Jon Stewart, and Sean Hannity's advocacy for Massachusetts candidate Scott Brown's Senate campaign.
msnbc's countdown, the rachel maddow show, and hardball devoted a total of more than two hours to the earthquake. cnn's anderson cooper is in haiti.
