A lot of people across the country are talking about the terrible trial of Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who is charged with infanticide. The stories coming from the trial, via the few outlets willing to pay attention, are horrific and gruesome. But what’s more, similar stories are trickling out from other abortion clinics. It turns out that the uncommon barbarism of Kermit Gosnell’s clinic may be more common than most might imagine.
But most won’t imagine it because most of the nation’s network reporters tend to lean left, are sympathetic toward abortion, and view the right’s demands for coverage with disdain. Meanwhile, the network news producers in New York City censor this news because of the networks’ own beliefs and biases. They won’t devote their time and resources to it, as they would if Gosnell and his untrained assistants had killed dogs instead of babies.
