The nerve of the media!

No one had anything negative to say about "Yele Haiti" until now. How dare the media attempt to discredit Mr. Jean's organization. If this organization was misappropriating funds, this should have come to light PRIOR TO the earthquake. I will not believe such nonsense the media (particullarly Fox 5) is broadcasting about Mr. Jean's organization.

I see the only reason the media has sought to discredit Mr. Jean is because his organization was (and still is) one of the few organizations that were already addressing the needs of Haitians PRIOR TO THE EARTHQUAKE.

It all comes down to other organizations desiring to seek recognition for helping Haitians NOW. Fact is, a lot of these organizations who are now "joining the cause" for Haitians had them furthest from their agendas PRIOR TO THE EARTHQUAKE. Don't get me wrong - it is great and most necessary for all organizations and other countries to help Haitians in any way possible.

Instead of the media attempting to weaken the impact of "Yele Haiti", the media ought to keep its focus on delivering facts about what Haitians are going throught. The media's bullcrap implications about Yele Haiti need to stop, period.

It's amazing (or maybe not) how the media can't seem to stop trying to dig up and dish fake dirt while the humanitarians are digging through rubble 24-7. Go figure.

This is classic; No good deed shall go unpunished! In the midst of all this tragedy have the media nothing else better to do than try to slander one of the few people who have always supported his country and always worked hard to raise mainstream American awareness of the conditions in Haiti? I donated to the charity and will continue to support Wyclef,his music, and his future Hatian initiatives! In essence, the media needs to find something else to do and focus on the situation at hand- aiding a nation in need!!

With all the money syphoning, hypocritcal "so-called" Christen organizations that take millions off the top for their own use ... the press has chosen to single out this man ... who loves his people ... who has been using his good fortune to help his people ...
Shame on all or any who would dain to print /say negative things about someone who could not get voice enough from the press before the quake and is now receiving so much negative voice ...
