Fox News is the clear victor in those watching around-the-clock news of the tragic earthquake in Haiti. While ten FNC correspondents have been deployed to the region, including White House Correspondent Wendell Goler, who is still in the Dominican Republic and D.C. correspondent Griff Jenkins, who just arrived today, this weekend viewers will watch Geraldo Rivera join the coverage. (Above right is a shot of him covering an expose on Staten Island in 1972.)

Greta Van Susteren attempted to go to Port au Prince Thursday, but her plane was not permitted to land in the city and she returned to Washington. “I gave Griff my sleeping bag (he also has one) to give to anyone who needs it plus I have given him the supplies I have,” Van Susteren wrote on her blog, explaining that Jenkins drove to Ft. Pierce, Fla. to catch a 4 a.m. cargo flight to Haiti.
