Is media bias to blame for lack
of Gosnell coverage?
Or something far more banal?

Washington Post, by Paul Farhi

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 4/14/2013 10:03:20 PM

Is media bias to blame for lack of Gosnell coverage? Or something far more banal? The trial of Philadelphia doctor Kermit Gosnell would seem to have all the elements of a spectacular news story: shocking allegations, horrifying visuals, sympathetic victims. Yet until late last week, much of the national media was silent as testimony about Gosnell’s alleged “house of horrors” abortion clinic rolled out. Much of the media attention outside Philadelphia, in fact, centered on how little media attention the story was receiving outside Philadelphia.

Comments:
WaPo found some column space in the Style section for a piece that basically points a finger at conservative news outlets for lack of coverage. Remember the days when newspapers were looking for scoops?

It´s Left-wing bias with a large over-lay of cowardice.

First the MSM cover-up. Then the MSM lies about the cover-up. This must be Ayers and Rev. Wright, no wait, it´s Obama´s birth certificate, no wait, it´s Fast and Furious, no wait, it´s Benghazi, no wait, it´s the Gosnell trial.

They were killing beautiful, innocent, black babies and have the nerve to use their mantra "It´s for the Children" when they enact their filthy ordinances and bogus laws to control our lives.

The stench has reached heaven and the GOD they so desperately been trying to kill will not be mocked. It´s coming, wait for it.

The libtard drive-by media won´t print any stories on Gosnell because it definitely goes against their crusade of infanticide. When Barry´s Death Panels kick in for senior citizens, they´ll ignore those stories too because it goes against their crusade of eugenics.

There is no doubt whatsoever that the media are 97% liberal, enthusiastically support abortion, and are totally ideologocally driven. Conservatives have known this for a very long time. What is really banal here is their phony shock at the accusations.

It´s even worse for the WaPo and the NYC papers as "news" that happens in Philadelphia is generally considered "regional news" since the cities are so close together and easily reached via train.

Hitler would be astonished at how willingly our "free press" tows the leftist line...I mean it´s not even propaganda by "nationalizing" the media...they have literally "nationalized" themselves...there´s not even a use for PBS. It´s completely irrelevant.

Gosnell is obviously black and, by his practice of killing babies (both unborn and unborn, is obviously politically a far left liberal. MSM views him as "one of theirs" and would never participate in exposing him. So they cover for him by ignoring the trial. To do otherwise might hurt their "womens´ choice" agenda.

And of course, blame others. ´If they don´t cover it first, how are we supposed to know about it?´ That is a outright admission that journalists don´t do their jobs any more.

I was watching MSNBC´s Morning Joe this morning looking for any coverage on this trial. Joe did three segments on the Gosnell trail and encouraging people to read the grand jury report!!!!!!!
He interviewed a local reporter and a pro choice ex-governor who served during that time period, and said the laws in place were adequate but there was not enough oversight.
He gave details. He compared it to New Town. Joe compared this 30 week baby that was killed, to his own son who was a premature child born in an earlier week of development.
It was a beautiful sight to see. A friend had alerted Joe Scarborough to the case.

FTA: Moreover, some commentators have pointed out, greater media attention to the trial might help, rather than hurt, abortion rights advocates. They say the graphic testimony about illegal late-term abortions, unlicensed staff and shockingly unsanitary procedures and conditions at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic strengthens the case for keeping abortion safe, legal and affordable

Its not safe, women are dying and/or being rushed to ERs. It isn´t legal to kill a baby born alive. And it certainly isn´t affordable to undergo an abortion that delivers a baby that was poisoned in-utero.

"Bias" is a soft, useless word. Saying the media suffers bias misses the point entirely. Protecting Gosnell is just one of thousands of protectorate mafia media events. Most media is controlled by new world order dominating forces. Elegant Diane Sawyer isn´t free to say whatever good thoughts may remain in her pre-brainwashed mind. There are rules in this unionized mafia, rules you do not break. Never discuss the birth certificate issue, never discuss the beautifully established American culture of private gun ownership, never discuss the arming of schools, never discuss fast & furious, our government giving guns to Mexican drug cartels, never discuss Holder supported vote fraud, never discuss tossing UN out of New York, never discuss chaos in gun controlled cities versus relative safety of gun carry cities, of all mind altering products, never discuss no withdrawal goodness of the natural plant, cannabis, never show 24/7 fiat dollar printing, never show disaster that is forced medicine obamaskare. There are endless, prohibited topics on brainwash media/press. Our saving grace is this right here, internet, New Media (and new world order/UN is trying to close this down, too). Not covering Gosnell´s accused crimes is just one of many censorings by statist powers. It ain’t bias. What remains, of all of TV´s lovely and charming Diane Sawyers, is robot power controlled, just like Mr Soetero.

I suspect this clinic and the one in Delaware are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to unsanitary conditions. Why? Because abortionist tend to be at the bottom of the barrel in terms of medical prestige and there are darn few negative consequences for sloppiness. The inspectors are afraid to complain too loudly and the customers who are injured or who get infected are not likely to sue.

This is ironic because when abortion was illegal those physicians who would preform one sub rosa had to be gosh darn careful to get everything perfect. If they didn´t they could lose their license and go to jail.

Why you use the word "bias" describing today´s American mainstream media? Use the right words - it is leftist propaganda machine who works hand in hand with leftist anti-capitalist, anti-freedom government! And think where it gets its financing from: all the newspapers (they give them practically for free to us), local TV, Google, Facebook...
Of course from the leftist government who, by the way owns the banking in the country!

Gosnell was cutting off the hands and feet of babies and keeping them as souvenirs. The Washington Post doesn´t care.

Gosnell was delivering babies alive, then holding them aloft and cutting their necks. The Washington Post doesn´t care.

Gosnell was offering superior treatment and facilities to white women while black women were shunted off to filthy, bloody, unsterile rooms with cat feces on the floor. The Washington Post doesn´t care.

Why doesn´t the Washington Post care?

Because reporting on this would harm the Left´s political narrative.

Similarly, the Washington Post refuses to report on Barack Obama´s arming of Mexican drug cartels because stories about "Operation Fast & Furious" harm the Left´s political narrative. So what, if three hundred Mexican citizens have been murdered thanks to Barack Obama and Eric Holder? The Washington Post doesn´t care.

This is the same newspaper which wrote an editorial explaining why they WEREN´T going to cover the New Black Panther voter intimidation scandal, "despite thousands of phone calls and e-mails expressing intense reader interest."

These people aren´t journalists. They´re cheerleaders for the CommieCrat Party, and telling the TRUTH is the LEAST of their concerns.

This was allowed to happen all these 30 years because of Affirmative Action. AA´s are allowed to do much outside the norm because no one has the bells to report on it as they could be called ´raaaaacist´ and also because this was done mostly on poor black women. I scanned the Grand Jury Report and I´ll tell you, this whole this makes me sick to my stomach. Those poor ladies who had to go through this. The black community needs to do something about the young men (or just men) who plant the seed and leave somone else to take care of the problem. And then to top it off, we see the picture of the EMPTY benches in the courtroom where reporters should be sitting to get information to report on this atrocity. Dear Lord, where are we?

When you acknowledge some seven bloody murders or so, then a logical conclusion would lead to 38 million more. Folks meet your everyday liberal... a mass murderer. Another description would be killings for convenience.

Do you really wonder why the MSM ignored this story. Because these can´t be swept under the rug.

While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
