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.

Flashback: Sarah Kliff wasn’t always so hesitant to report on late-term abortionists.

Progressives have a radical need to portray abortion as nothing more than a minor medical procedure that grants women greater autonomy. Reporting on Gosnell would shatter that view.

Also, as has been pointed out other places, there is really no ethical dividing line between what happened in Gosnell's clinic and what happens at any late-term abortion. The only difference was Gosnell's extremely unprofessional behavior.

My word. Here we have a man accused of serial infanticide that might reach three digits, and of criminal medical malpractice, and of using a 15-year-old as an assistant in his abattoir, and this...reporter doesn't think it merits coverage?

She's not a journalist. I have my doubts as to whether she's a woman...or human.

Too bad Ms. Kliff was not a customer of the esteemed Doctor. Since it was only low income black women that were his victims, it's not worth a line of reporting. Gotta keep them in their democrat run ghetto plantations! Man, liberals sure do hate black people.

It's not only black babies who die at the hands of abortionists, it's just that the white babies are murdered in a more genteel and expensive setting and very often because to give birth would be an "inconvenience" to the mother and sometimes for the purpose of gender selection.

Before Roe v Wade some women who had the financial means had what are referred to by the pro-choicers as back alley abortions, but they were far less scary and dangerous as they're described now. My mother, a die-hard lefty and ardent atheist, was very matter-of-fact, almost cheerful, when she told me about her abortions, one of which happened when she was married to my father. She found my sadness at the loss of a potential sibling ridiculous. In high school my best friend became pregnant and was whisked off for a very costly, safe and illegal abortion. When I became pregnant at 17 I was offered the same option but I absolutely refused, despite my mother's pressure, because I KNEW that what was inside me was a human being. My education was cut short and I went to a home for unwed mothers (how quaint that sounds now) where I loved every moment of my pregnancy, brought a beautiful boy into the world and was able to have him with me in the hospital for a week. Giving him up to be adopted was the most agonizing day of my life but I've never had a moment of regret. I wonder how many women who chose the abortion option can say that they've never regretted what they did.

There is a basic reason that nobody on the left wants to talk about the Gosnell infanticide abattoir. It is only one of many.

When you roll over a rock, and are disgusted by the wriggling slimy things you see there, one tends to immediately stamp them out. If you are the protector of the menagerie under the rock, it is in your interest to make sure that rock never gets rolled over.

The first rule of Abortion Club is, you never talk about Abortion Club.

In this country, Freedom to Choose has come to mean infanticide and genocide (eugenics by its proper name), and it engages in what seems to have become the ritual murder of the most helpless among us. Gosnell and his colleagues have only taken it to its logical conclusion.

If the late term "partial birth" abortion, which appears to require the killing of a viable infant in many cases, is okay, then how soon will it be okay to terminate post-partum babies? What would the upper age limit be? One year? two? Maybe 18 years would be acceptable.

Black on black violent crime is bad enough, and is certainly something the village needs to address. The abortion program, unfortunately for blacks, is aimed at black Americans; their benefactors are in fact their killers.

Perhaps black Americans should think about who really wants them dead. Perhaps they should consider the price of all that free stuff the next time they vote for any Democrat. Perhaps they should stop getting their news from the sector of the American major media producers that have become willing partners in the genocidal war on people of color that the left calls Freedom to Choose".

The truth and nothing but the truth--Leftists in general but particularly the MSM/Press couldn't care less when blacks murder blacks.

The Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman case was also a local crime. But the MSM turned it into a national dialogue about racism, which coincidentally is what Obama and Holder wanted.

The George Tiller murder was a local crime. But the MSM elevated it to the national issue of abortion rights.

And of course, now the MSM is taking just about every murder committed by a gun to elevate it to the national issue of gun control.

Liberals constantly rail about Fox News, calling it Faux News and so forth. But they refuse to accept that THEY are the ones who have created a big market for Fox News, by repeatedly spiking stories that aren't consistent with their agenda. As a result, a lot of folks are forced to look elsewhere to get information on such stories: The Benghazi affair, this Gosnell case, etc.

If someone yawns at a news story, she just isn't interested. It doesn't faze her, that this monster killed over 100 black and brown citizens from the wrong side of the tracks. It does end up saying a whole lot more about her than she wants us to know, I guess. But the Law of Unintended Consequences is like that; ever notice how "Politician Does Something Immoral" always means a Democrat unless the headline states otherwise? It's gotten to where "Democrat" is the default party of a sleazy congressbeing.

The Atlantic agrees [http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2013/04/why-dr-kermit-gosnells-trial-should-be-a-front-page-story/274944/] that it should be national news, though not because of abortion per se.

I know that you mean well. But please explain to us what kind of “professional” touch can you put upon the killing of infants that would make practice seem more palatable? I believe I would replace “unprofessional” with fiendish or grotesque.

My brother (PhD Pharmacology) was born a month premature. Had my mother decided to have an abortion at that stage rather than giving birth would she have been killing a human baby? His grandkids would like to know.

"unprofessional" means he snipped babies' spines after they had completely emerged from their mothers. Had he inconvenienced himself slightly and had severed their spines before they became US citizens, then most of his gruesome actions would not have even been illegal in most of the cases. Or at least, he would have gotten away with labeling the almost-full-term babies "23 1/2 weeks"
