Hollywood to save lives

Is it me or is there some arrogance in this--IOL: O'Reilly agrees to join arch-foe Clooney:

"And when O'Reilly poked fun at Clooney's letter on his O'Reilly Factor show on Monday, the Ocean's Twelve star fired back with an ultimatum. He wrote: 'Former Presidents Bush and Clinton believe this is an important enough event to participate in. We're not playing games here, we're trying to save lives.

'It's as simple as this; you're either with this joint effort or against it. We need an answer immediately.' (Emphasis mine.)

What lives will possibly be saved by presenting and performing here? Is that just too cynical of me? The US military and other militaries plus many relief organziations, government officials and local governments are saving lives right now on the ground and at some risk to themselves. They are doing all the heavy lifting. But Hollywood will save lives by having a performance?

They will provide money obviously and that money will be used to save lives, but would anybody else talk this way when giving money or putting together a charity event that will ?
