A lot of conservatives are trying to speak out and are rhetorically asking, “Why isn’t the media covering this?” Well, if we had more Republicans who are actually ready to defend the first God-given right of life, we wouldn’t need the left-wing media to say anything. We’d have it covered. Thanks, Republicans, who don’t have [...]

UPDATE 4/16 9:45a: Here’s a good piece on TweetFest Round 1, “Celebrities, politicians force media to look at abortion ‘House of Horrors.’”
4/15, 5:50p: Sign up now to participate in Round 2 of the #Gosnell TweetFest this Wednesday, April 17, from 8a to 8p EST.
Round 1 garnered almost 170,000 tweets, according to LifeSiteNews.com, with the hashtag #Gosnell trending in the number 1 spot, according to Lifenews.com. The TweetFest was credited, along with Democrat Kirsten Powers’ USA Today column, with finally getting the media to pay attention to mass murderer abortionist Kermit Gosnell. For example…
We know there are journalists out there infuriated by their employer’s current behavior: The change must start with you. We are looking for whistleblowers: if you have any information regarding why your employer is not covering the Gosnell trial, please submit it here. Your anonymity will be protected. ~ PJ Media, encouraging journalists to anonymously [...]
We believe the story is deserving of coverage by our own staff, and we intend to send a reporter for the resumption of the trial next week. In retrospect, we should have sent a reporter sooner. ~ Martin Baron, Executive Director of the Washington Post, speaking about the trial of accused mass murderer abortionist, Kermit [...]
The media is suddenly starting to pay attention to mass murderer Kermit Gosnell, thanks in part to a “tweet fest” currently underway until midnight to “break the media blackout,” as is posted on the Facebook event page launched by Andy Moore, Bryan Kemper, and Troy Newman.
Kudos, too, to pro-life Democrat Kirsten Powers, who also helped light a fire under her liberal friends in the media with her USA Today post.
Per CNN’s Anderson Cooper, within the hour (time stamp is way off)…
UPDATE 4/16, 9:50a: The Atlantic has posted 14 possible reasons for the media blackout.
UPDATE 4/14, 5:10p: The Gospel Coalition has posted eight reasons for the media blackout, which are good.
4/11, 4:34p: Living in Chicago, I’ve observed press coverage up close on three of the most notorious mass murderers ever apprehended: Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, and Richard Speck.
Speck tortured, raped, and murdered eight student nurses in Chicago in 1966. Dahmer murdered 17 boys and men in the Milwaukee/Chicago area between 1978-1991, keeping and eating some of their body parts. Gacy raped and murdered at least 33 boys and men between 1972-1978, burying many in the crawl space of his Chicago suburban home.
In each case the press tripped over themselves to recount every morbid detail, anxious to feed the public’s fascination with the macabre (click to enlarge)…
As Kelli spotlighted in today’s Quote of the Day by Mark Steyn (also noted by Matthew Balan at Newsbusters), the mainstream media has for the most part gone missing in reporting the murder trial of late-term Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
Gosnell, his wife Pearl, and eight employees stand accused of murdering seven newborn abortion survivors and one mother.
Not only has MSM gone missing, when it does report on this horrendous story, it often gets important details wrong or makes inexplicable gaffes.
For instance, journalist MaryClaire Dale reported in a March 20 Associated Press story:
In 2011, I wrote about mass murder at Kermit Gosnell’s abortion “clinic”: … A man is killing actual living, gurgling, bouncing babies on an industrial scale – and it barely makes the papers. Had he plunged his scissors into the spinal cord of a Democrat politician in Arizona, then The New York Times, ABC, CBS, [...]
I spoke and corresponded by email with Maryland Medical Examiner spokesperson Bruce Goldfarb on February 22 and 23 to get clarification on puzzling statements ascribed to him by two news organizations last week regarding the February 7 death of Jennifer Morbelli, a patient of late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart…
Heaven forbid that any mainstream reporter should actually do some actual journalism the way “just a blogger” Jill Stanek did on this story. If you know anything about Jill Stanek (which, of course, no liberal reporter would) you know that she wouldn’t report something like this unless she was absolutely certain of the facts, and [...]
