WPost reporter explains her
personal Gosnell blackout

Patheos.com, by "Mollie"

Original Article

Posted By:LComStaff, 4/12/2013 9:42:16 AM

I’ve been writing about media coverage of abortion for many years. And so have many others. If you haven’t read David Shaw’s “Abortion Bias Seeps Into The News,” published in the Los Angeles Times back in 1990, you should. That report also explains why we cover the topic here at GetReligion.But the thing is that I’m getting kind of sick of pointing out egregious bias only to see things not just remain bad but get worse. Just think, in the last year, we saw the media drop any pretense of objectivity and bully the Susan G. Komen Foundation

At the WPOST they do not cover local crime stores? Like the Watergate breakin or Catholic Priest Molestations?

Hypocritical piece of excrement.

If they were honest, they´d admit they pick and chose what local news they cover.

But they are not honest.

Agree #3 - It is difficult to contact any of the so-called stations, or reporters.

The link to the FaceBook page by one of the commenters is great. Many fine comments, links, etc.

How long can they continue to get away with NO coverage?

...the journalists who should be covering this story love and revel in their sin so much that they have lost all humanity...

We´ve had to bear the gun legislation stories, over and over.

Here´s an idea Republicans: Introduce legislation with extremely tough licensing and inspection standards for abortion clinics. Have hearings about the subject of the Gosnell trial.

Time to go on the offensive instead of forming a gang of whatever to cave in on something the Dems crave.

In a flash I realized why they are not covering it...they have all had abortions.

They ignore this story so that they don´t have to confront the giant demon hiding in their closets: they are baby murderers too. They have all paid Gosnell-like executioners to kill their own babies. Covering Gosnell means dealing with the realization that they couldn´t hear their own murdered babies scream because they succeeded in snipping the baby´s neck while it was still in utero.

#9 may be on to something. Remember when Sarah Palin´s daughter was ruthlessly made fun of because she was inconveniently pregnant? Someone commented at the time how interesting it was that no kids of media figures or kids of Senators and Representatives ever happen to find themselves pregnant. Or look at Jeff Greenfield´s daughter. She had an affair with the (married) Jeffrey Toobin, and he demanded she get an abortion.

#9 points out something I think we have all known, intuitively, for a long time:

That many pundits and reporters are pro-abortion either because they´ve had abortions themselves (in the case of women), or have been complicit in pressuring a woman to abort her baby (in the case of men).

Of course most of these people don´t want to admit the enormity of what they´ve done. Those who have a conscience will, someday, have to come to terms with it; but many don´t have the courage to face the truth.

This is why it surprised me so much yesterday to see a post by David Frum --a strongly pro-abortion RINO-- linking to Kirsten Powers´s piece about Gosnell.

Hi Molly – I cover policy for the Washington Post, not local crime, hence why I wrote about all the policy issues you mention. Sarah Kliff

So that explains why she hasn´t covered the Gosnell trial? Give me a break. She wrote this story on April 2: North Dakota’s only abortion clinic isn’t going anywhere http://tinyurl.com/ca9k8c8

Abortion clinic North Dakota, abortion clinic Pennsylvania. One she covers one she doesn´t. See?

It´s time for the U.S Congress to introduce the federal "Born Alive Protection Act" and dare any democrat to oppose it.

Perhaps this story isn´t considered news by the classic definition: "Dog bites man, that´s not news. Man bites dog, that´s news."

If the staffs of most late-term abortion clinic are acting as horribly as did Kermit Gosnell´s staff, there´s no more reason to cover that trial than a trial of some grocery store clerk who shortchanged a customer 25 cents and pocketed the quarter. Particularly if the news director sympathizes with underpaid grocery clerks.

You know, I think I have come up with the perfect answer to get people to respond. Someone needs to put it to the press. Please--realize this response is as horrific as the Gosnell story--but someone needs to cause some common sense--response; "personally I think the Gosnell actions were fine, he was killing black children". Maybe that would wake the press up..this may get deleted by the taste police. OR..............am I just worried about the Anthony Freeman Twilight Zone response?

I think #9 has a very good point. They have either had abortions themselves, paid for their girlfriends to have abortions, or their children have had abortions.

A friend was in the hospital years ago, having suffered a miscarriage and very upset. The woman in the adjacent bed had had an abortion. Why? She didn´t want the pregnancy to interfere with her planned trip to Europe. She just couldn´t have that...

Benghazi, Libya - A Boyish-Looking American Diplomat was meeting for the first time with the Islamist leaders of eastern Libya’s most formidable militias. It was Sept. 9, 2012. Gathered on folding chairs in a banquet hall by the Mediterranean, the Libyans warned of rising threats against Americans from extremists in Benghazi. One militia leader, with a long beard and mismatched military fatigues, mentioned time in exile in Afghanistan. An American guard discreetly touched his gun. “Since Benghazi isn’t safe, it is better for you to leave now,” Mohamed al-Gharabi, the leader of the Rafallah al-Sehati Brigade, later recalled telling the

The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood. The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August. According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV´s, provided

Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday.

That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday
