Hmmm, now this is interesting. Both Charles Krauthammer and Kirsten Powers are pro-aborts, but they are also both outraged by the media blackout on the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell:
Chaos” isn’t really the story here. Butchering babies that were already born and were older than the state’s 24-week limit for abortions is the story. There is a reason the late Democratic senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan called this procedure infanticide.
Planned Parenthood recently claimed that the possibility of infants surviving late-term abortions was “highly unusual.” The Gosnell case suggests otherwise.
Regardless of such quibbles, about whether Gosnell was killing the infants one second after they left the womb instead of partially inside or completely inside the womb — as in a routine late-term abortion — is merely a matter of geography. That one is murder and the other is a legal procedure is morally irreconcilable.
A Lexis-Nexis search shows none of the news shows on the three major national television networks has mentioned the Gosnell trial in the last three months. The exception is when Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan hijacked a segment on Meet the Press meant to foment outrage over an anti-abortion rights law in some backward red state.
The Washington Post has not published original reporting on this during the trial and The New York Times saw fit to run one original story on A-17 on the trial’s first day. They’ve been silent ever since, despite headline-worthy testimony.
Go here to read the rest at USA Today. Once upon a time America had journalists. They were often partisans, usually Democrats, but they understood they had a duty to cover news stories and get the facts straight. That breed is largely dead. “Journalists” today are usually merely unpaid propaganda shills for the left wing of the Democrat party. They will gladly bury, ignore, distort and mangle news to meet their political ends. The only difference between them and the “journalists” of the old Soviet Union is that at least those poor propagandists had guns against their heads. Our “journalists” willingly debase their profession.
