The same reporter devoted more than 80 stories to covering Todd Akin (a local politician who said something dumb and not representative of anyone other than himself), Richard Mourdock (a local politician who said something dumb and not representative of anyone other than himself) and the Komen-Planned Parenthood story (which was really about the policy of the Komen Foundation, not national health policy), yet has not written a single story about the state of Pennsylvania’s failure to protect women and Dr. Gosnell’s alleged crimes, and the politics behind the state’s willful neglect, and the national policy implications of unregulated abortion clinics. There is now a second case of alleged horrors at an abortion clinic, in Delaware.
Now that this is a multi-state story, should Congress step in? Why or why not? Are more states failing to protect women from predators in medical garb? Click over to Sarah Kliff to find out nothing at all!
Sarah Kliff’s claim that Gosnell is a mere “local crime” story reveals that she is a liar with a byline.
By the way, I’ve asked alleged media critic Howard Kurtz on Twitter what’s his opinion of the media’s failure to report on the Gosnell trial. Kurtz never even responded. Then again, the alleged media critic hardly ever actually levels any serious criticism at the media.
