Help for Help Sake? Not to Fox

Reported by Donna - May 30, 2006

Today on Fox News Live (12 - 1 p.m.) there was a segment on the U.S. providing help to Indonesia because they had suffered so much from a devastating earthquake. Good story, right? It was until reporter Greg Palkot said that by helping Indonesia, with it's large Muslim population, there may be "political dividends for the U.S. as well."

During the story Palkot talked about us setting up a medical and surgery facility and how this could help U.S. relations with Indonesia.

Comments: I couldn't help but wonder, what happened to helping people because it's the right thing to do, not because we expect something out of it? Isn't this something that every child learns as they grow? Not to Fox, it's what we're going to get out of it that counts.
