The hospital has been helping survivors from the very onset of the disaster and it's great to see a local charity helping fellow Haitians.

If roles were swapped, with News Intake Editors sending medics and NGOs responsible for news gathering, would there be less reports but more people saved?Or am I missing something?

Lazy reporting.

I turned off World at One, I've turned off Ch4 News - they don't know when to stop, do they? Wato - "So, you don't know whether your brother is still alive or not?" "No." "And on a scale of one to ten, how sad would you be etc etc etc " Fri 15 Jan 2010 22:10:43 GMT+1 funnyJoedunn http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/01/pm_glass_box_34.shtml?page=57#comment16 I'm sorry, I had to turn off PM about 30 seconds in. As I did with the TV news. I'm afraid I can't take all this suffering, death and poverty turned into political footballs. Straining stories out of the bleedin' obvious. The world leaders should be ashamed of themselves that societies like this have existed for decades. The country next door to Haiti, Dominican Republic has areas just as poor as it's neighbour. However, travel companies do a thriving trade charging thousands for a week or a wedding in a so called 'tropical paradise' there, but always careful to tell their tourists to stay with the safe zones and confines of the hotel area. While just down the road the locals have to live off grubbing up the local tip! This also has gone on for decades. And we are fed the emotional platitudes while it slowly fades into next months chip paper and nothing will change,,,until the next earthquake that is.

Unlike the two year old rescued by the Spanish team I think this one had been abandonned by people who could not bury him. Very sad.

I know thousands have died, but the description of that child haunts me.

He wanted the job done as far as he was able. Sadly no consolation to his mother and widow. Let we not forget them, all of them, when the time comes.

But if we losing that, perhaps we could have the UK theme instead.

So what do those of us with clear vision in only one eye do if they want to see these films when everyone has 'gone 3D' ?

Where's the anti-US slant to the help being provided to Haiti by America. Not enough, too late, imperialism by sending troops and an aircraft carrier. Fri 15 Jan 2010 17:16:10 GMT+1
