    Lame #Gosnell media blackout pushback

    Lame #Gosnell media blackout pushback

    There is some very lame pushback against the overwhelming evidence that the mainstream media has a virtual news blackout on the Gosnell trial.

    It started with a post in Slate about how “feminist” bloggers have written about Gosnell, and the NY Times reported on the case at the time of the indictment two years ago.

    Rather than addressing the problem — that the live testimony at the trial has revealed the horrors like never before — some people are cherry-picking isolated media reports to make believe it’s not a problem, and making the argument that “feminist” writers were ignored.

    This is a red herring. Some “feminist” writers may have written about it and there were some media reports mostly long ago, but compare the coverage since the trial started to other high profile trials.

    The recent demand for coverage started with pro-life bloggers, and then went viral when Kristen Powers wrote her powerful piece in USA Today calling out the media for its silence.

    Those are the facts. Sorry the facts don’t line up with the counter-narrative that there is no media problem.

    So it was only “news” when the arrest occurred, back in 2011, and not worthy of followup now, two years later?

    Let’s see how that theory holds up when George Zimmerman comes up for trail for defending himself against the “youngster”, Trayvon Martin. That occurred back in 2012, so it couldn’t possibly be news now, according to Jody Jacobson or any of the other media defenders.

    I am sure I will be able to admire her consistency.

    The non-coverage is about protecting the LSM’s baby-killing advocate Obama, their jug-eared jesus.

    And the feminists are blaming conservatives of course.

    Ok at least those Brits are covering it & the issue of non US MSM coverage. The Tele has 13 pages of comment .

    I have certainly seen it in the Australian media .

    If those 2 can cover it – there is no excuse for America media.
