The necromancy of TV...
Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
What exactly does Elvis have to do with American Idol ? What does Celine Dion have to do with starving children - or Bono for that matter?
Charity begins at home. Look after the people who matter to you.
I didn't notice any Iraqi kids in the 'heartwrenching' clips to entice Americans to donate money to the widely criticised one.org campaign.
I also read that billions of dollars offered to the victims of the Hurricane Katrina disaster didn't receive the charity in cash and kind.
Overlay that with the US military study of the less than charitable views of American troops in Iraq and one has to wonder about broadcast tv altogether.
