Sean Penn Calls Out Media for Not Covering Positive Haiti News

Sean Penn Calls Out Media for Not Covering Positive Haiti News

Sean Penn looks dapper in a suit while stopping in the convenience store at a gas station on Monday afternoon (April 28) in Los Angeles.

The 53-year-old actor was on his way to the Milken Institute Global Conference, where he talked about his advocacy work for Haiti, which was devastated by an earthquake back in 2010.

Sean pointed out that the media, especially the “left-leaning media,” has not been reporting the good news coming out of Haiti. He is trying to help the nation receive the outside investment it deserves.

“This is a miracle unreported,” Sean said (via THR). “No one is asking for a handout. It’s not a beggar culture. Everyone is asking for a job.”

“It’s that tangible place that has been so long disregarded,” he added. “Geographically, it’s very practical to get involved with Haiti.”

    Left leaning media is all about selective reporting.

  • Tell me about it

    He’s right about that. Haiti’s been on the ups for years but you never hear about it.

    Sean Penn has done wonderful work in Haiti. He is a thoughtful and kind human being. One of the greatest actors going today. I think Charlize and Sean have a lot in common, make a nice couple.

    It is unfortunate that America is so self-absorbed. We don’t hear much news coming out of countries that are inhabited by people of color, even when the news can have a positive impact on a large group of people. But let’s not just blame the Left, the Right couldn’t find Haiti on a map. Thanks for your outstanding work, Sean.

  • IT IT IT

    PENN needs to do an about face, and BLOW OUR MINDS
    and direct, even star in the definitive treatment of the
    Globalist BETRAYAL of our WWII Chinese alllies to MAO,

    PENN should direct and star in the definitive treatment
    of the martyrdom —of JOHN BIRCH.

    IT’S TIME.
