Bias in our liberal news media. Doctor kills 100 babies, no one in media cares.

He's Black, he's (obviously) a Democrat, he's an abortion doctor, he kills babies born alive but the mainstream news media has ignored his murder trial in Philadelphia. His name is Dr. Kermit Gosnell.  One Congressman, Republican Rep. Chris Smith from New Jersey said: 'If Gosnell Had Shot Seven Infants with an AR-15, It Would Be National News'. The story isn't about Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice, the story is about the Hollywood-style horror images coming from the eye-witnesses in the trial. Born alive babies screaming as this butcher cut their spinal cords with a pair of scissors to make them die on a table in his abortion clinic. ran this story yesterday.

Photo: Empty 'Reserved Media Seating' at Abortion Doc Gosnell's Murder Trial

Via the Get Religion blog at Patheos:

The picture above, for what it’s worth, is of the reserved media seats at the Gosnell trial. It was taken by JD Mullane, a news writer and columnist for the Bucks County Courier Times, The Intel and the Burlington County (NJ) Times. He says:
Sat through a full day of testimony at the Kermitt Gosnell trial today. It is beyond the most morbid Hollywood horror. It will change you.
I was surprised by the picture and asked “really?” He responded “Local press was there, Inky, PhillyMag, NBC10 blogger. Court staff told me nobody else has shown up.”
You need to read the full story.
Dr. Susan Berry wrote a different story about this on quoting the New Jersey Congressman: “If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing,” said Smith, a member of the House pro-life caucus." 
LifeSiteNews reports that Smith accused the national media of almost uniformly discounting the trial of the abortionist who allegedly snipped the spinal cords of babies who were born alive during abortion procedures in his clinic. Smith referred to the media’s decision to ignore the trial as a deliberate “cover-up.”

"Will the decades-long major national news media cover-up of the brutality—and violence—of abortion methods ever end?" asked Smith. "Will Americans ever be told the horrifying details as to how—and how often—abortionists dismember, decapitate, and chemically poison innocent babies?"

Testimony in the Gosnell trial, that has included descriptions of gruesome acts of beheadings, abuse, death, and body parts of babies in jars, has led to the abortionist’s clinic being labeled a “house of horrors.”

He quoted an editorial in Investors Business Daily entitled, “Newtown in the Clinic: Media ignore the Gosnell Trial,” which chastised a media “transfixed by Newtown” as well as “a basketball coach who shoves and curses at his players,” but provides no coverage of a Philadelphia abortionist on trial for murdering a woman and seven infants.
From the article:
Everybody has heard of Mike Rice, the disgraced former Rutgers basketball coach who was fired after video surfaced of him shoving, kicking and yelling at his players, throwing basketballs at them and — most damning — using "homophobic slurs."
According to the Media Research Center, in one week Rice received 41 minutes, 26 seconds of air time on ABC, CBS and NBC in 36 separate news stories. Gosnell received zero coverage.
Criticizing President Obama for exploiting the Newtown massacre to push a “de facto repeal of the Second Amendment,” on the grounds that if it could save one life it would be worth it, the editorial goes on to point out that, as a state senator, Obama twice voted against a bill entitled the “Born Alive Infant Protection Act.” That bill, IBD notes, "Defined a baby who 'breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or definite movement of the voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut' as a legal person entitled to the full protection of the law, regardless of the circumstances of its birth."
The dam finally burst the other day when a columnist named Kirsten Powers wrote an opinion piece in USA Today asking why the national news media was ignoring this story. And then suddenly everyone was showing up in court to cover it.

Philadelphia abortion clinic horror: Column

We've forgotten what belongs on Page One.

Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven't heard about these sickening accusations?
It's not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell's former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.
NBC-10 Philadelphia reported that, Stephen Massof, a former Gosnell worker, "described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, 'literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body." One former worker, Adrienne Moton, testified that Gosnell taught her his "snipping" technique to use on infants born alive.

Media Acknowledge Blowing Gosnell Story, Pledge Extensive Coverage

Bloomberg columnist Jeffrey Goldberg writes: "It’s too late now, though, to suppress coverage. [Kirsten] Powers and others have shamed the media into paying attention, and the press is now on the case. It’s remarkable that it took this long."
The Washington Post: "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."
Politico's Dylan Byers: "Gosnell should be front-page, top-of-the-hour news by primetime tonight. And if it's not, we'll write about it again."
NBC's Joe Scarborough: "A horrifying story out of Philadelphia that the media must cover. We will cover this on Monday." 
Now if only someone in the national news would comment on the Democrats disgusting use of the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy and the unending display of the photos of those 20 dead first graders to foster their anti-gun plan, maybe we can end more of this media bias. But that will never happen because to the leftists in our government and in our media the highest priority they have is doing away with the Second Amendment. With all of the hoopla following Newtown there hasn't been one criticism of the the anti-gun plan's inability to stop criminals from having guns or how they would prevent another mass killing.
