I don’t care if you are pro-life or pro-choice. This is not about abortion. Gosnell was murdering children outside the womb and performing EXTREMELY late term abortions…and cracking JOKES about it!
This man is a disgusting sociopath.
This is murder, plain and simple, and the national main stream media isn’t touching it with a 50 foot pole.
If this doesn’t piss you off, nothing will.
The most frequent conservative-martyr lie I see is this nonsense about how the mainstream or national media isn’t covering a thing (usually a thing the blogger heard about in the national media.) So, here I will demonstrate just how deep in the bubble these idiots are.
Here’s a list of mainstream, national news outlets covering this week’s update on this 2-year old story:
The Philadelphia Inquirer
The New York Daily News
The Boston Globe
The Washington Post
Local NBC a different local NBCSeriously, Philadelphia’s NBC has a whole section just for this case
and the news wires Reuters, The Associated Press and UPI
And, of course, NPR, and CNN and The Chicago Tribune the New York Times had updates before any of those sources.
Furthermore, this isn’t really news and if you think it is, you don’t know shit about news. The doctor pled not guilty. Someone testified. Big fucking whoop. Who cares? Call me when there’s a verdict. When this story broke, 2 years ago, it was news.
Then, it was in The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, The Los Angels Times, NBC, AP, every Philadelphia news outlet, every New Jersey news outlet, everywhere.
You are pummeling the media in your typical right-wing way, barking at nothing. You are asking for coverage that is already being delivered appropriately and then claiming persecution without even investigating whether or not there is coverage. This is why the right wing buys this myth of the liberal media. They’re too steeped in this martyr complex and too unwilling to read to understand news.
