I must say that what this organization has today on Haiti is disappointing. There are lots of people in the US and accessible in other countries who know Haiti extremely well, and many of whom are Haitians themselves. Where is the perspective here that helps a "visitor" understand the tragedy of the earthquake in a Haitian context. As one person associated with GlobalPost once put it to me in another context, the lead story on how "your donation could hurt" is "not helpful.".
