Did anyone else witness the slap in the face that FOX and American Idol tried to pawn off as a telethon? Does anyone else feel slighted with what notion that FOX had to have a telethon in order to try and help any cause anywhere in the world? We aren't talking about WQRS-TV public access station trying to raise money to stay on the air. We are talking about one of the top four television networks in America. They have huge contracts with the NFL, NASCAR, and one of the biggest shows in television history; American Idol. Fox as a network benefited more than Africa by the show last night that was aired. They gained additional public support for their network by appearing to help and care about the conditions of Africans. To show that they truly care, they should lobby that the government change some of their laws towards Africa and other developing nations. This will not happen, as it would in the long run negatively effect Fox as a network. Just think if Fox, ABC, CBS, and NBC joined to lobby for change instead of Fox asking the public to donate during one of the most popular television shows in history. And finally, no one was eliminated last night meaning Fox gets another week of ratings as American Idol gained an extra week on air. But that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I.
