COMMENTS: Eat Dirt

ABC and NBC took different approaches to the global crisis caused by the rising cost of food. Basic staples cost 50% more than a year ago--not a crisis in the developed world where as little as 10% of our money is spent on sustenance; a calamity for the poor in developing countries, where food can account for 80% of all income. For ABC's A Closer Look, David Muir (embargoed link) rounded up vignettes from his colleagues: Bill Weir followed food riots in Egypt; Jim Sciutto saw demand for biofuels drive up kale costs in Kenya; Stephanie Sy cited China's appetite for pork putting a squeeze on feed for humans; Nick Schifrin told us that India has stopped all rice exports, driving up the world price.

NBC focused on just one country as Mara Schiavocampo filed In Depth from the road-blocked, fire ravaged, looted streets of Port-au-Prince. Food riots had rattled the gates of the palace of Haiti's President Rene Preval. Schiavocampo showed us a staple fare in poor neighborhoods. Ready for the recipe? "Butter, water, salt and dirt"--that is right, "dirt cookies."
