'Fox And Friends' Attacks NBC's Sandy Benefit Concert: 'Is It A Concert For Obama?' (VIDEO)

"Fox and Friends" questioned NBC's upcoming fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy on Friday morning, wondering aloud whether it was putting the event on merely to help President Obama.

The benefit, "Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together," will air on Friday night, and features performances by Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Christina Aguilera and Billy Joel, among others. The televised benefit concert has become a staple of post-disaster relief efforts. But "Fox and Friends" smelled a rat, since the concert is airing so close to the presidential election.

"Good intention, raise some money for victims, but the timing is more than suspect," guest host Eric Bolling said. "Is this more political? Is this more, let's get this thing on TV before the election to help President Obama look more presidential? Or is it more to help out victims?"

"It does look like they're trying to squeeze it in," Steve Doocy agreed. He then noted that Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen are avowed Obama supporters (they are also New Jersey musical icons, of course).

"Where are the conservative performers?" Doocy asked. "How's NBC going to control what people say?"

"Is it a hurricane benefit or a concert for Obama?" he later said darkly. "I don't know," Bolling said.
