Update: Medical flights from Haiti to the States

The story continues that flights have been halted and no one is saying why.

US Halts Airlifts Of Haiti Patients, Citing Space

And I heard this morning on NPR that the flights were not stopped. According to this story, Miami authorities (who?) asked that victims from Haiti be sent elsewhere to allow the Miami hospitals enough space to handle the crowd that will be attending the Super Bowl.

I still wonder why this issue and this story is coming out now. Why weren’t local reporters looking at the flood of people from Haiti coming into local hospitals?
