VIDEO:Haitian Crisis, Media and U.S Military

[flv: 480 360]
The response to the Haitian crisis has been tremendous as countries from around the world have sent help..Unfortunately there were delays in providing help to those in most need. Complaints also have been made against the U.S press as they originally focused on foreigners and not the Haitian people. Now there are complaints about the U.S. military hindering the relief efforts. Relief partner countries plan to meet and Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bolivia said they will boycott the meeting to protest the US military's presence in the Caribbean. Is this all to do about nothing or are their legitimate concerns based on past U.S interventions?

BMSTV explores the question with Host Maurice Carver, Prof. L'Heureux Lewis, Prof. Marc Lamont Hill and Darryl Hell.
