So killing another human being isn't horrific?

so what you're saying is these kids are just acceptable collateral damage so women can have abortions?

“Media Bias: A basketball coach who shoves and curses at his players merits constant coverage by a media also transfixed by Newtown. But a Philadelphia doctor on trial for murdering a woman and seven babies? It’s ignored.
Those who get their news from the three major networks have probably not heard of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, now on trial in Philadelphia, charged with seven counts of first-degree murder and one count of third-degree murder for killing seven babies who survived abortions and a woman who died after a botched pain-killer injection.
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.

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.

ABC has never carried that story. Not once. Neither has NBC. CBS did … back in 2011 when Gosnell was first arrested. The rest of the media landscape is an equal travesty. CNN did one story on it in 2013, even though the trial has been going on for more than three weeks. Fox has covered it more than most of its TV kin, but it has surprisingly not done a lot.
It’s OK, they’ve been too busy with basketball. Yes, ABC, CBS and NBC have spent 41 minutes and 26 seconds telling viewers about the Rutgers basketball scandal. And not a second about baby murder in Philadelphia. Of course, Rutgers Coach Mike Rice did throw basketballs at grown men, deploy “abusive behavior” and, worst of all, use “homophobic slurs.”
Gosnell’s charges seem mild by comparison. He is charged with murdering seven viable, born-alive babies “by plunging scissors into their spinal cords.” Sherry West, who worked for Gosnell, recently testified she saw an 18- to 24-inch-long newborn. “It didn't have eyes or a mouth but it was like screeching, making this noise. It was weird. It sounded like a little alien,” she told the court.

Normally those of us in the news business love trials, the more sensational the better. Just look at the coverage of the Jodi Arias murder trial in Maricopa County, Ariz. — or earlier national obsessions with Casey Anthony and O.J. Simpson.

Which makes the media blackout of one ongoing trial a mystery. Or maybe not.

In Philadelphia, Kermit Gosnell is on trial on eight counts of murder: seven for babies he’s accused of killing with scissors after they were born, and one for a pregnant refugee who died after receiving an overdose of drugs. If true, Gosnell was running a slaughterhouse out of the Middle Ages.

Since the only way to remotely paint all abortions as horrific through this story would be to ignore that the pregnancies were very late-term, it seems to me you've got little to nothing to base this opinion on.

Besides, the liberal media is covering it up nicely, so you should feel comfortable. They're still too busy demonizing guns and gun owners due to Holmes and Lanza.

Semiautomatic rifles are used in less than 1% of gun crimes and less than 25% of mass shootings, but let's leave wet, smelly streaks on our computer chairs because these things are such a menace, killing folks left and right all the flipping time. While we're at it, in order to feel better, let's tell people to use shotguns for defense instead in spite of that shotguns kill more people every year than all types of rifles combined.

Then after that, let's take the MENSA entry test because we're certain shoe-ins.

REALLY?? This is just an idiotic post. It happened because you have a sick individual practicing within the system. Sort of like those anti gay preachers that are taking it up the pooper. How could that possibly happen?

You are more intelligent than this. Your posts dripping with global generalization while conclusively labeling liberalism doesn't do you credit. Or at least I hope it doesn't. Step it up and don't pander to emotional conservatism, the exact sort of thing you hate to see from us "liberals".

Where is the handwringing emotional pleas for new regulation to prevent the slaughter of innocent children, blatant racism, and brutality against women? Actually, where is the plain reporting of any aspect of this trial on any national network?

Just wondering how often you say this to liberals on this forum? It's about 10 to 1 here in favor of liberals in terms of emotionalism and labeling.

If anything, the Gosnell case is an argument for legal abortion.

Abortion is a legal medical procedure,obviously those who don't believe in abortion are going to have extreme views on it.

My post was directed solely at your generalization of liberal philosophy, nothing else. You are either getting sloppy or lazy in your old age. Either way you are too smart to be reducing a viewpoint to such general terms.

Your question about where this is in the media to me is valid, it deserves reporting in context to the degree one person committed crimes. Using it as a standard bearing argument against abortion, as some of the posters here would advocate via the lack of coverage, is disingenuous. One Dr. committed crimes, it deserves that level of coverage.

I'm curious to know whay y'all think the media's motivation would be to not cover this story. You seriously think there's some sort of conspiracy here?

It was directed at Bronc solely, mainly because many of his other posts in other areas actually require a level of intelligence to often capture the humor or irony on more than one level. Right or wrong I expect more of him because he's capable, others I'm not so sure of.

With all the blathering you do towards others with differing viewpoints you hardly need my help. Also before you call me out on my supposed hypocracy why don't you check out your own.

You seriously don't understand the point? That making abortion illegal is going to lead to more Kermit Gosnells?
