Weather Channel Meteorologist Apologizes For Haitian Children 'Eat Trees' Comment
Delgado later issued a on-air apology, that some say is not enough.Which would make it more imperative that you know your facts.
"I want to begin by apologizing for a statement I made yesterday that was found inappropriate," she said. "My intention is always to inform and educate."
Delgado also posted an apology to her Facebook page.As they say on Seinfeld, it's not a lie if you believe it. The truth is that Haitians burn trees to cook their food, because they're too poor to afford fossil fuels. That's called a sustainable biofuel.

"You lied on TV. You deserve to be dismissed," wrote McKenzie Fleurimond, a former North Miami Beach councilman.
