Big Three Networks Ignore Abortion Doc Who Snipped Babies’ Necks

Posted by on Mar 21, 2013 at 8:18 am

ABC, CBS, and NBC’s morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, which began on Monday. Gosnell is charged with murdering seven babies who were born after viability in his rundown abortion facility. The Big Three also gave the story minimal coverage back in January 2011, after the Philadelphia physician was arrested. ABC completely ignored it, CBS Evening News aired one full story, and NBC gave just 50 words on Today.

Even the New York Times covered the trial in a Tuesday article, though it appeared on page A-17. Writer Jon Hurdle documented how Gosnell is charged with killing the babies by “plunging scissors into their necks and ‘snipping’ their spinal cords.”

Full story.

    This story isn’t news because they were just babies after all (nothing but blobs of cells, sure they were crying but that was just a reflex) and they weren’t killed with an “assault rifle” but a pair of scissors. And it’s not like the press has ever have covered or exploited other serial killers (my mistake, he isn’t a serial killer, just a good doctor helping poor women get rid of their mistakes so they won’t be punished with them; as your president would say).
