Set Your Recorders: Kanye West Scheduled for Two More Katrina Shows

At the bottom of an E! Online story on Kanye West's NBC outburst, we're alerted that BET and MTV have decided to give West more of a platform for his emotional ranting:

This Friday, the six major broadcast networks joined by PBS, cable outlets like E!, radio stations and the Internet, will simulcast Shelter from the Storm: A Concert for the Gulf Coast. BET will also air a benefit that night, titled, S.O.S. (Saving Ourselves), and MTV, VH1 and CMT will air a special program, ReAct Now: Music & Relief, on Saturday. And, adding a bit of intrigue to the telecasts, West is scheduled to appear live on both the BET and MTV events.

"A bit of intrigue?" This should give us a clue that both shows are not discouraging angry racial conspiracy-theorizing, not only from West, but from other "compassionate artists." Gentlemen, start your recorders!
