Via Ace, here’s MSNBC’s excuse for ignoring the trial of abortionist and accused serial killer Kermit Gosnell.

Lauren Skowronski, an MSNBC spokeswoman, said her network was paying attention to the story, but added, “We don’t cover criminal trials to the extent of others in cable news.”

Oh. So that’s why Chris Matthews jumped all over the possibility that the Texas DA killings had connections to a white supremacist group?

That’s why MSNBC hasn’t been all over the Trayvon Martin case? They’ve run dozens and dozens of stories and even a racist open letter from Melissa Harris-Perry, because MSNBC doesn’t cover criminal trials to the extent of others in cable news.

They just ran entire prison documentaries on weekends for years on end.

Got it.

In MSNBC’s case, the simplest explanation for the network’s lack of coverage is that the evidence cuts against the left’s position on abortion, and the defendant is black.

Come on, guys! I believe her. In fact, I am certain that had Kermit D Killer been a white, middle aged, Tea Party member that MSNBC would not have mentioned it one single time.

Personally, I like Megan McArdle's "Us wimminfolk is like to swoon if we is to see such thangs" excuse. I think Ernie Pyle used to say stuff like that when he had to cover icky stories too, right?

The history of this Era will be called, sometime in the future, "The End Of The Monarchies". The drama being played out now is that of deciding who will replace them. It seems as if nationalism is running a distant fourth, and religion (Islam) is running second to federalist capitalism. But progressive democracy is still in the race in third place. Whoever wins will get to describe the mainstream press as either an ally, an enemy, or a quisling.
It may take more than a generation for the outcome to be determined, and "victors write the history."

The simplest explanation for the network's lack of coverage is that the people who run the network are evil.

This is what those looking at and dealing with the left need to keep in mind. Leftist do bad things not because they are confused, or misguided, or misinformed. They do bad things because THEY ARE BAD PEOPLE.

Exactly...all Leftists from Marx forward know one thing..The Truth can never *really* be told, because it undermines what they are trying to accomplish...

Which is why with any Leftist Regime you get Propaganda Ministries, (the MSM?) to push the Falsified Production Quotas (Head Start? Affirmative action? Better unemployment figures before the election? "hate Crimes"?") Bogus Scientific Achievements of the Regime (Global Warming! The First Pregnant MAN!) combined with Soft Politics of Repression through the Blacklisting of certain ideas, stories, and positions, followed inevitably (look at the left's tweeting their wet dreams) by the Hard Politics of gulags and killing fields... which will never "officially" exist either.

Lefties are evil. The truth is their enemy, and they constantly conspire to suppress it.

All these people saying that the Gosnell case is just a local crime story are not lying. They really believe that Gosnell is guilty of nothing more than running an unprofessional clinic. They know that what Gosnell did is really no different than any other late-term abortion, as others have said, it's only a matter of "geography."

Rule #1 - For a story to make prime time reporting the story must fit the narrative of progressive thinking.

Rule #2 If you get confused refer to rule #1...

.....and Occam's Razor speaks without talking, once again Mr. Preston.
Whenever I see This Beast and the dearth of "reporting' that is not occurring 'this' [your last comment] is really the only thought that goes through my head, and tells America all it needs to know about Journalism in Our New Era.
What's it gonna take to make them just do their jobs.........?

They will never do their jobs.

We must do it instead.

That depends on what the "job" is. I'd say they're doing their job, it's just that their job isn't journalism; it's something else.

Correct. Their "job" is to ensure that leftists maintain political power, at any cost.
