Are Newtown kids being exploited? Students to appear on Seacrest's red carpet show

Is Hollywood exploiting the students from Newtown? That's what many are saying after a producer announced a group of students from Sandy Hook Elementary would be featured on E! Entertainment Television's pre-show for the Grammy's.

It's being reported they'll be singing the hit song "Call Me Maybe." The appearance comes just days after another group of students from the school sang alongside Jennifer Hudson at the Super Bowl.

Is this a healthy distraction or something more?

    No, exploitation is when the NRA and the GOP mock and laugh at the Newton families as they bury their dead. These poor kids and their families need all the support, well wishes and prayers that they can get simply because the healing process for many of them could last a lifetime.
