We see the suffering, we feel bad about the suffering, we do something – dial “0800-doing-good” (0800-36464-4663). Raising money for charity is an eye, to heart, to wallet equation. No one does the annual telethon like these two news anchors, who know that money is best raised in a vulgar contest of which cause can garner the most pity. But this year these two women who’ve been doing the annual telethon fundraiser for needy causes are about to have a very public fallout over a disability very personal to one of them. They will have to take sides for the first time in their friendship, professional careers and perhaps their lives.
