Nicholas Kristof's not afraid to take on Haiti myths and misinformation, and I thank him for it

Nicholas Kristof takes on the misconceptions spread by Bill O'Reilly, Pat Robertson, and Rush Limbaugh.  His column is remarkable because it takes on the ugliest and most misinformed reactions of commenters and brings them into a thoughtful, reasoned discussion.  It's a difficult thing to talk to people who only want to spew invective, but somebody needs to do it.
