, which is supposedly inspired by Haiti. Renowned Haitian painter Philippe Dodard provided some consulting on the collection. But as Nadine Mondestin (@zeklearts) wrote me: "Nice collection. Don't see the Haiti. Haiti is so not earth tones." Couldn't agree more. This collection is yet another indication that Haiti is the hot cause marketing trend. Bleh.

that Bill Clinton is Haiti's real president while Martelly is merely a lame duck puppet.
The 9 videos included in this edition make it quite media heavy. Yesterday was that kind of a day on Haitian YouTube!
Blogger and radio talk show Carel Pedre's channel (PedreCarel) has been posting segments of his TV show Digicel Stars. In today's media section, you will find 3 clips of the Cap-Haitien and Gonaïves contests but feel free to peruse
which offers many more segments. The judges (Man Lolo a.k.a. Marie-Laurence Jocelyn Lassègue, Alex Abellard and Michael Benjamin) and contestants alike are hilarious and the
is the funniest I have seen this season:
Télé Image's channel offers some great reporting by host Valério St-Louis about the MINUSTAH rape scandal. There are 5 clips in the media section of the paper. From the multi-segment interview with MINUSTAH spokesperson Eliana Nabaa, we learn that the
victim's mother has received threats, that the Uruguayans themselves are in charge of the investigation
about the rape and that contrary to what many papers reported, the
four rapists are still in Haiti
!!! There is also an interview with a Haitian legal specialist explaining what can be done on the legal front.
Apparently, the immunity of the MINUSTAH troops only applies when they are furthering their peace keeping duties, which they were not in this case
. Below is the
clip of the demonstration in Port-Salut
featuring an interview with the mayor and with Senator Youri Latortue among others:

And more including the PM crisis and catty assertions against Angolan Miss Universe Leila Lopes by Miss France.
