ABC, CBS, and NBCs morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, which began on Monday. Gosnell is charged with murdering seven babies who were born after viability in his rundown abortion facility. The Big Three also gave the story minimal coverage back in January 2011, after the Philadelphia physician was arrested. ABC completely ignored it, CBS Evening News aired one full story, and NBC gave just 50 words on Today.
Even the New York Times covered the trial in a Tuesday article, though it appeared on page A-17. Writer Jon Hurdle documented how Gosnell is charged with killing the babies by plunging scissors into their necks and snipping their spinal cords.
On the January 19, 2011 edition of CBS Evening News, then-anchor Katie Couric (whose liberal bias is well-documented, including on the issue of abortion) gave her strong word of caution as he introduced correspondent Elaine Quijanos report. She added, The details are gruesome. You wont want young children to watch. A Philadelphia doctor who made millions performing late-term abortions was charged today with murder. The D.A. says the doctor killed seven babies after they were delivered alive.
Quijano then led her report by underlining how Gosnells abortion facility has been described as house of horrors. She also reported that an adult victim 41-year-old Carnamaya Mongar died in 2009 after receiving an overdose of anesthesia .Photos from inside the clinic, visited mostly by minority and immigrant women, show unsanitary, squalid conditions with jars and bags of aborted fetuses.
The correspondent also mentioned the Gosnell case on CBS Evening News eight days later on January 27, 2011. During a report on the continuing political fight over abortion at the state level, Quijano noted how both sides in the abortion debate [are] using the case to re-energize supporters.
In his Tuesday report for the Times, Hurdle documented that the Pennsylvania physician is charged with seven counts of first-degree murder as well as multiple counts of conspiracy, criminal solicitation and violation of a state law that forbids abortions after the 24th week of pregnancy. The journalist also reported how Gosnells lawyer accused prosecutors of racism a prosecutorial lynching of his client, who is black. Its an elitist, racist prosecution, Mr. [Jack J.] McMahon said. This black man is being taken because of who he is and where he works.

Pro-aborts are energized by the thought of killing babies outside the womb!?!
I am no longer shocked that liberals think that way.
It was a front story on Yahoo news.
they do it all the time. called co-sleeping deaths.
of course the MSM ignored it, why would anyone think organized mass infanticide was newsworthy?/
It’s not the News Reports, it’s Who Reports the News.
Now it looks like it’s Who chooses NOT to Report the News.
Obama not only thought that way when he was in the Illinois Senate, he voted that way. President Infanticide lives.
It’s not the fault of the MSM for not stopping this.
By now we should have swept through DC and ended this.
MSM are to sooth the Liberal psyche, reaffirm their twisted Liberal world view and direct all outrage at the Republican opponents.
Doctors murdering babies doesn’t fit in their criteria.
This is one of the most upsetting antilife accounts I’ve ever heard of.
I learned about this sad story on talk RADIO.
We can’t expect to get our full news on tv any more. It’s a waste of time to even try.
I remember your great posts during the early days of Benghazi...this very long article might interest you and the paradigm shift (not the intent of the article) but duly noted by those of us who are “paranoid”:
Bankers at the top today...tomorrow the redistribution crew...oil, gas, and mineral rights. Yesterday our soldiers were heroes, today they’re taking away their benefits... Why one might wonder.
There is no time for that silly. It would distract from the endless Jodi Arias psycho-girlfriend murder trial.
