George Clooney Announces Haiti Telethon, While Barack Obama Pens Newsweek Piece

The reports out of Haiti today continue to be horribly grim. Survivors of Tuesday’s mega-earthquake desperately need food and water, and relief aid teams just can’t get it to them quickly enough. Search and rescue teams are frustrated, and bodies continue to pile up in the streets. In the meantime, folks stateside are figuring out what we can do to help. It was just announced that Barack Obama will be penning the cover story for Monday’s issue of Newsweek, discussing the disaster and how we can all pitch in. And George Clooney is organizing a telethon to raise money for the relief effort—the special will air on Jan. 22 on ABC, NBC, HBO and CNN, as well as on all of MTV’s channels. Who knows what famous friends he’ll bring along on the air with him. [Huffington Post, Newser]
