Another pissing match between the libs and conservs.

Anything or anyone on CNN, the lib media.....trash it.

On Fox....trash it.

It's time to put all that petty ideology BS aside when our fellow humans are dieing and in pain. Making political points with the blood of the suffering is despicable.

I love mixing it up in the political arena as much as anyone. This is neither the time nor place!!

OK, did I say the wrong thing?

I was just wanting to say one last thing,

We do have to look at the reporters, as with Doctors, or the Police, those who work in horrendous conditions, and see horrific stuff, sometimes become desensitized, it has to be a protection mechanism.

I truly believe that the Doctors were UN doctors and it was the responsibility of the UN to safeguard them.

But the actions may not have been the right ones.

That is why I think this problem will no be happening again.

Is been a lot of criticism because of what happened last night.

Two points:

On the day of the quake, FOX spent less than 10 mins reporting on it.

CNN is not liberal.

Sorry, I am still livid at Rev. Pat Robertson and it's affecting my response to all that consider themselves conservative Christians.

That's ok waaaa, what makes you think I am a conservative christian?

I don't fit that mold at all, lol, but that is another topic.

we should talk about it, yes I follow the teachings of Jesus, love one another,

But I am not that good at it,

I agree. As a physician I thought Gupta looked like a deer in the headlights

at the outdoor MASH tent surrounded by about 30 moderate to critically

ill trauma patients, not knowing exactly what to do next, but kept talking

to HGH-spawned bicep muscled Anderson Cooper. Bad form.

Reminds me of what one of our tired, hard working neurosurgeons

said to me about Gupta once - considering our guy is a reservist -

that when Gupta was reporting in Iraq he managed to piss off our

surgeons there by making it seem they couldn't treat neurosurgical

injuries in the field as he scrubbed in to deal with a gunshot wound to

head. Bad form again.

Thank god this guy didn't become our surgeon general.

He can't lead, he can't even deal with multiple traumas. Truth is

most of us in medicine start to wig out with around 5 major traumas

in a row, and this country is suffering like no other.

Shame on them for reporting and not triaging and treating as much

as possible.

The Belgium team leader called to get his team out, not the UN.

that was just reported - by CNN.

My wife makes a good point too - many in Haiti are HIV+, and

in the chaos, universal precautions don't always work. Not to mention

the chaos of hungry hurt people and the roving gangs.

The military should have secured multiple safe points for triage.

I feel though without being there we can simply not comprehend

the degree of carnage. My father lived through the 1953 7.3 earthquake

that devastated Cephalonia, Greece, and apparently major earthquakes

are numbing in their death tolls...

Nations that are used to earthquakes are prepare for the worst, we have our own here in California, My husband and I were station in 29 palms back in 92 when the landers big bear earthquakes hit, they were as big, we even went to see the fault that opened after, I could walk in it.


At 4:57 a.m. on June 28, 1992, a very strong earthquake occurred in the High Desert of Southern California. The M7.3 earthquake was centered on the eastern side of the San Bernardino Mountains near the town of Landers in Homestead Valley. The quake was the largest to strike California since the Kern County M7.7 earthquake in 1952.

The quake was preceded a few months earlier by the Joshua Tree M6.3 earthquake on April 22 and followed by the Big Bear M6.4 earthquake at 8:05 a.m. later that day. A robust aftershock sequence followed and consisted of thousands of tremors, including 143 quakes registered M4.0 or stronger - 19 of which measured M5.0 or stronger. The most recent moderate aftershock was the Joshua Tree M5.0 earthquake on May 14, 1999.


www.seismo-watch.com...

Two earthquakes in one day.

No many die but it was a lot of injured, the base housing area I was living at the time has substantial damage and we were moved to another area that same year, I developed panic attacks for a while after that.

Haiti last major earthquake was 200 years ago, I am from the Caribbean, PR, we have tremors once in while but nothing to worry about, this time is been total chaos for a nation that has nothing much to live on.

So sad.

I saw this as well! Extremely impressive, especially getting the camera crew involved. It's the sort of thing that makes you want to drop everything and head over there to help

Thanks for the news, I was very impressed by the military looking into Dr. Gupta expertise.

The Comfort will have a team of neurosurgeons when they become fully functional.

I was wondering why Dr. Gupta was not around for two days, then the news that he was aboard the Vinson was all over the news yesterday and that he had performed a very delicate and difficult surgery on a 12 year old girl with heat injury and shrapnel in her brain

I Cannot even believe the absurdity of watching CNN/Gupta from Haiti.

He looks like he has had his hair freshly done, and isn't even breaking a sweat.

I was amazed that he did the 1 surgery ( and glad ) ... and CNN was saying he saw 25....TWENTY FIVE...patients at ONCE! the average ER patient numbers are HUNDREDS PER DAY...sometimes with only 2 staff docs....25? That's completely ridiculous. He took an oath to help people, and its very disappointing....

Well maybe he is helping when he is not reporting. I mean he is there 24/7 right? We don't see what is going on all the time, just pieces. So eventhough I hate CNN I do have to say..... you don't really know what else is going on. MAybe he has/is helping.

I never trust the "media" because they're always biased towards something so CNN, NBC or w/e(whatever) have always lost it in my opinion and will never have my respect. They never tell the full story of anything, OR they forget stories altogether.
