Kirsten Powers Rips Virtual Media Blackout of Gosnell Trial
Newsbusters ^ | 4/12/2013 | Tom Blumer

Posted on 04/13/2013 8:05:42 AM PDT by rktman

In a USA Today column Thursday evening, liberal Fox News political analyst Kirsten Powers took the establishment press to task for its failure to give more than cursory attention to the trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell

Funny how these ‘reporters’ only start speaking out because something is ‘trending’ on ‘twitter’.

Wonder how the media would write Gosnell’s bio if some patriot killed the abortionist.

was checking the comments on some other sites yesterday.

The Democrat Talking Points were pretty weak, but that didn’t stop them from citing 2 year old articles as proof that the MSM was on top of this.

When called out, they started using the few story references they could find that were created last night, after 24 hours of ridicule.

***Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell****

You can bet the same thing is happening at abortion mills all across the country. They just haven’t been caught yet.

I heard this guy had been operating (so to speak) for years and the last inspection of his so called clinic was done in something like ‘89. WTF? Never mind, we all know WTF! Planned parenthood/eugenics at work here. Abortion good. AR-15’s bad.

You got it! That is the question the liberal “jounalists” do not want asked.

Just how many Gosnells are there?

Nary a peep in Kansas. Most MSM went full bore to rationalize Sebilius’ support for Tiller, so have a stake in keeping this story out of sight.

You would think that the libs would be out front on this to prove that Gosnell is only an extremist anomaly. Also that many abortion mills are so wretched because the right wing extremists prevent them from having first rate facilities.

A lib like Kirsten, breaking lockstep? Objecting to the primary leftist sacrament? Maybe there is still hope!

I’ve watched her on Foxnews on occasion and sometimes I think she’s right on the edge of switching teams. At least she appears reasonable at times unlike dumb asses like juan wilson who, despite being screwed by his buddies, still sides with them in most cases.

It is worse than hypocrisy. There are people who refer to Media Matters as a Nazi site. As evidence for this, Media Matters took comic genius, Greg Gutfield, to task for mentioning the media blackout (except Fox News) of Gosnell in what Media Matters says was an untimely manner. What Media Matters is doing is a nazi propaganda technique of turnspeak propaganda. Turnspeak propaganda is essentially accusing your opponents of the heinous things that you yourself are performing. In this case, accusing Greg Gutfield of the odious omission that the drive by media is performing regarding Mr. Gosnell. It appears that the Josef Goebbels Turnspeak propaganda technique was piggybacked by an admirer of Satan, Saul Alinsky and Saul Alinsky's dirty tricks are the bible for today's Liberals.

The dirty trick the Liberals pulled against Greg Gutfield (appearing on "The Five" btw...) should not be met with surprise. Especially from the Nazi Media Matters.

They have known about it at Daily Beast and are being forced to talk about it since the Twitter campaign has begun. The liberals in power and many of their supporters don't care because they are the very ones who have allowed these unsafe practices to be out there. Why wasn't that Gosnell clinic checked out by he State Health Board of Pennsylvania years ago? A lot of people have allowed babies to be murdered. One woman on that video shown from another thread said she had even changed her mind in not going through with the abortion. Gosnell did the abortion anyway. It should be shown so women can see the real effects of what they are deciding to do. I read pages and pages of the transcripts. It is horror. Gosnell is the face of evil. His assistants went along like it was no big deal. Live babies falling out from the woman's body; the paid worker waiting for Gosnell to come to the fifty room/office from his home so to murder the baby. I couldn't sleep well last night.

It's not hypocrisy at all. That's really the way these people think, and it's perfectly in line with their political agenda.

A black "doctor" slaughtering minorities doesn't bother them at all. In fact, that's what he's there for. It's the same agenda that drives Barack Obama to fall all over himself to make a high-profile push for gun control when a bunch of white kids get killed in a wealthy suburban school district -- even as his own hometown of Chicago has been a war zone for years without so much as a peep from that jug-eared dope.

The liberal media are a bunch of COWARDS! Life is meaningless to them, and all that counts are their paychecks and promotions.

Kirsten Powers seems reasonable at times. I can tolerate listening to her on the “panel” more than some others on the left.

If you or I had a little baby one day old, or a few hours old, and it was known that we did something to end the child’s life, we would be charged with murder though these liberal funded organizations like Planned Parenthood constantly as a routine murder these little children. It’s mind boggling that most of the babies being killed are poor black or Hispanic. Late term abortions too. Why in the world does poor black people put their trust in a party that is not saving their people. What kind of people have we become and this media looks the worse.

I agree with you. Plus she is way too cute to be a Dem.

Occasionally, Kirsten’s role as Fox News’ resident liberal places her in the position of being expected to defend that which often turns out to be the indefensible. This wears on her, as she is at heart an honest woman.

Every now and then Kirsten shows signs of breaking out of the liberal crazy house.

the vile Donna Brazille is whining, “where have all the conservative media been on this??” as if... It must be nice to be able to pretend to the whole world that the only people who should be reporting on/exposing the evil are the conservatives, who can’t get a word in edgewise on national media, and she KNOWS it.

Incidentally, besides Greg Gutfield, I have heard the horrific Gosnell story on Fox News; e.g., Sean Hannity, the six o clock news. Nazi like Media Matters and those other lib smear artists are putting Josef Goebbels turnspeak propaganda to use. That these smear artists probably got it from Saul Alinsky -- whose credo appears to be fight dirty - does not make it any less vile.

Probably tradition, IMO. They’ve been Dems for so long, they don’t think of switching.

Turnspeak propaganda sounds like it’s basically projectionism used as a tool.

Facebook and twitter are tools of the liberal left. They have provided the overriding influence of the opinions of the ignorant over public discourse. Libs have used this to justify and spread their hate and dissension throughout the country.
