Washington Post: “We should have sent a reporter sooner”
Jill Stanek ^ | Jill Stanek

Posted on 04/13/2013 7:27:51 AM PDT by Morgana

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 Gosnell, April 12, this after WashPo reporter Sarah Kliff deemed it a mere “local crime”

Description of photo (click to enlarge), via J. D. Mullane of phillyburbs.com:

Three rows of seats reserved for the media remained empty Thursday morning April 11, 2013 in courtroom 304 at the Justice Center in Philadelphia where abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell is on trial, charged with seven counts of murder for killing seven born-alive children, and also a patient. The man at the rear of the courtroom is David P. Williams, of Delaware Right to Life, who covered the trial for his pro-life blog.

That would have just given the baby killing Democrats more time to dissemble, misquote, lie and equivocate the real truth. They are collectively responsible for the genocide of an ENTIRE generation of Americans, and they are quite literally responsible for hate crimes against black souls waiting to emerge into this world. A despicable group of ghouls that have their constituency completely fooled into thinking their life will be better with THEM in charge.

That's funny, I don't recall Adam Lanza coming to my town and killing children nor did OJ Simpson kill anyone I know.

I am sure their stories won’t be biased at all.

What crimes are not local crimes? I’ve seen local stories about NYC banning soda’s and stuff in my local media.

Try bringing this up in conversation with friends. You’ll likely discover that even rather well-informed friends don’t know about this trial.

Some bright progressive finally figured out he isn’t on trial for killing babies but for harming the women who came there to have their babies killed.

THAT they can cover.

The fact is that if heat was not vbrought on them by Twitte and facebook and Free Republic they still wouldn’t be at the trial.

It simply does not fit their baby killing agenda.

They are still praising Killer Diller.

Hey WAPO, SILENCE IS CONSENT.

At least that's what I've heard.

This statement is telling...WashPo reporter Sarah Kliff deemed it a mere “local crime”

Of course, all crimes are "local." Kliff meant to say, ...deemed it a mere local crime without national or international impact.

Which tells the bias of Ms. Kliff, and her intent [and the editors] to suppress.

I think all of these “journalists” should receive pictures of baby angels. Tons and tons of them. Email them, tweet them, whatever. But everytime they open their email accounts, etc. they will be full of baby angels.

Maybe then they will get it.

They are trying to spin it as a racial issue because this murderer Gosnell had a little cleaner waiting room for white women. Of course he only did that because he figured white women may complain to authorities more.

The women themselves, had nothing to do with the racial aspect. After all, they chose a black abortionist.

Kermit is Black....the Women who want to KILL THEIR BABIES are BLACK also, so THAT’s another reason no coverage!!

so exactly how does that work?

how many waiting rooms did he have? and they were segregated? did he bring in the minorities on different days?

This would be a great time for the Kansas press to revisit the Sibelius/Tiller mutual adoration party, including photos.

Yes, you are right. People do not know about this. I may have misunderstood, but Michael Medved had a caller who mentioned it yesterday, and it sounded to me like he was not aware of it. No surprise, Seattle being part of the Red Zone. Still, he is well-informed and thoughtful.

The only reason the MSM will pick this story up is that they've now come to the realization that unless they do, the *proper* spin will not be applied to it.

They initially ignored it hoping it would go away, and when it did not, they are now compelled to do damage control.

The story may eventually get widespread coverage, but it will only be couched in terms of how sadly underfunded, "women's healthcare," and how higher taxes might have prevented this.

These are the same people who tried to make Tiller a hero and martyr...I would not be surprised if Gosnell is eventually painted as a victim in all this.

The statement rightly should read, “ We had no intention of sending a reporter, sooner or ever, but we’re busted, so, since contrition seemed to work so well for our demi-god Clinton...”

What the sick pr*** did was bring the white woman to the 2nd floor. The different woman were all there on the same day, and if the black women got too loud, the ‘helpers’ drugged them more as to not upset the white clients.

I read the grand jury thing last night and it was so outrageous I can’t imagine how any of them ever slept after a single day in that torture chamber.

Sure. Just like you should have spoken up sooner on:
1) THE ELIGIBILITY SCAM
2) THE AGW SCAM
3) FAST and FURIOUS
4) BENGHAZI
5) ZIMMERMAN TRIAL
6) VOTER FRAUD SCAM
to name just a few.
