While other legitimate stories compete for our time and attention, I'm proud that our coverage of Haiti on tonight's broadcast -- and this week in general -- is about at the same level its been for days. We have a de facto Port au Prince bureau, with a bureau chief, several producers and camera crews and three correspondents.
It remains such a massive and urgent need. I would urge any of you who haven't given to find a charity you support and give what you can, as my wife and I have tried to do. There have been huge problems and great frustrations, but that is not the fault of the victims. They are still, millions of them, living desperate lives...while we all have so much. Last night we profiled a doctor who left his life in the States and flew to Haiti. That country is full of people like him, and I hope those previously unfamiliar with Haiti and Haitians learn something from this tragedy: about their work ethic, their faith, their stoicism and seemingly endless capacity to endure. Thanks for listening.
We hope you can join us tonight.
