Jivin J pointed to a New York Times article that fawned over “overnight sensation” Wendy Davis, a Democrat Texas state senator who is a big fan of late-term abortions.

But that was just the tip of the iceberg, according to Culture and Media Institute:

Remember the media blackout of the Gosnell trial? Earlier this year, Philadelphia late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted of three counts of murder – two of them delivering babies and then killing them in his filthy “house of horrors” clinic. He was also found guilty of more than 230 other felony and misdemeanor charges

Pundits and journalists excused the media neglect, saying late term abortion was just too uncomfortable, the descriptions of the clinic too lurid, or dismissing it as a “local” issue. That’s not how the broadcast networks have treated the pro-abortion crusade of Texas Democrat Wendy Davis….

In the 19 days since her June 25 filibuster, ABC, CBS and NBC have devoted 40 minutes, 48 seconds of their morning and evening news programs to stories including Davis. That’s more than three times the 13 minutes 30 seconds they gave Gosnell during the entire 58 days of the murder trial….

Unfortunately, when real evil reared its head in Philadelphia this spring, the networks were missing in action much of the time, and only grudgingly covered Gosnell’s horrific crimes. Nor have they been interested in the behavior of Davis’ most ardent supporters in Texas, who’ve chanted“Hail Satan!” and “F*** the Church” to drown out prolifers, and given little girls signs saying things like, “If I Wanted Government in my Womb, I Would F*** a Senator.”

But hey, they’re busy celebrating Wendy Davis and her rags-to-elegant-white-suit story.


MSM admitted after being called out by Kirsten Powers and the pro-life #Gosnell tweet fest that their pro-abortion bias blinded them on the abortion issue. But the mea culpa obviously hasn’t made a difference in their coverage of the issue.

We need to continue calling them out, although I doubt such examples as the above effect the bulk of them. I still do hold out hope for the rare authentic journalist or for the cumulative effect.

Nevertheless, despite the odds, we are winning in the court of public opinion.

I am only more strongly convicted to press on via new and social media. We are the balance.
