Pinocchios for the Washington Post
Excuses from a Post reporter: (Give us a break, Capeheart!)
"Ultimately, the conspiracy of silence on Gosnell lies not with the press. It lies with the workers at the clinic who allegedly participated in barbarous acts or allegedly watched them happen and said nothing. It lies with members of the community who knew about the alleged deplorable activity and conditions at “Women’s Medical Society” and said nothing. And it lies with Philadelphia and Pennsylvania officials who fielded numerous credible complaints about Gosnell and did nothing."Another Post reporter is more honest.
"I say we didn’t write more because the only abortion story most outlets ever cover in the news pages is every single threat or perceived threat to abortion rights. In fact, that is so fixed a view of what constitutes coverage of that issue that it’s genuinely hard, I think, for many journalists to see a story outside that paradigm as news. That’s not so much a conscious decision as a reflex, but the effect is one-sided coverage."Let's hope the mainstream media with egg on their faces decides to cover this on-going gruesome story. They can claim they aren't biased, but we all know where the media stands on "reproductive rights" and on "gay marriage." Either they are so blinded by their bias they actually don't see it or they are so committed to pushing their agenda they don't care. Thank God for alternative media. At least it prevents a total blackout -- U.S. Pravda style.
