Pay attenion, edge.
The trial began on or about March 18th of this year. Between then and the time people began pointing out the glaring lack of coverage (approximately April 15th), there was exactly one article on the trial covered by the New York Times.
One.
In this incident, seven babies were murdered by having their spinal cords snipped.
On the other hand, an incident in Florida comprised of extremely sketchy circumstances has warranted this extent of coverage by the New York Times:

Quote :
It took the prosecution five weeks to present their case against West Philly abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell and it took defense attorney Jack McMahon a couple of hours to knock a big hole through a critical part of their argument.

Three first-degree murder charges were dropped against Gosnell after McMahon argued that "there is not one piece...of objective, scientific evidence that anyone was born alive" at Gosnell's clinic.

Pro Lifer Terrorist Discusses Shooting Abortion Providers
Quote :
Sympathizes with anti-abortion terrorist Scott Roeder in interview

A Des Moines anti-abortion activist has publicly proclaimed that “it will be a blessing to the babies” if someone shoots the people who recently reopened a Kansas abortion clinic.

Dave Leach’s comments are being denounced by the leader of Iowa’s largest anti-abortion group, who says such talk is immoral and hurts the cause.

Leach posted the comments this month on YouTube. His posting includes a recorded phone conversation he had with another man, whom Leach identifies as abortion opponent Scott Roeder. Roeder is serving a life prison sentence for the 2009 shooting death of the Wichita clinic’s then-owner, Dr. George Tiller.

Leach has previously suggested that other men were justified in killing other abortion providers. He notes in the video that Tiller’s old clinic was recently reopened by a new abortion agency.

Pro-Choice Terrorist Not Only Discusses Snipping Babies' Spines and Storing Their Body Parts in His Office - He Actually Does It


http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-04-15/national/38558713_1_seven-infants-kermit-gosnell-abortion

Kermit Gosnell, a 72-year-old abortion provider who faces charges of murdering seven infants whose spines he allegedly snipped with scissors when they were born after induced labor at his West Philadelphia clinic.
……….
“If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing,”
………
The evidence Monday included testimony from Sam P. Gulino, Philadelphia’s chief medical examiner, who described receiving scores of fetuses and baby parts to examine in 2010 after authorities raided Gosnell’s clinic.
Gulino described two jars filled with formaldehyde, one holding a left foot and the other a right foot, from the same 22-week fetus.

Over-the-counter sales of Plan B morning-after pill approved for ages 15 and older
Quote :
The Obama administration on Tuesday approved over-the-counter sales of the morning-after pill for age 15 and above, a move that contradicts a court order requiring the pill to be made available to women of all ages.

While it fell short of that order, the administration’s move represents a historic liberalization of contraception rules — perhaps the most significant since the morning-after drug was approved 14 years ago. Today, Plan B is available to teenagers younger than 17 only with a prescription. Older women must request it from a pharmacist.

In early April, U.S. District Judge Edward Korman ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make Plan B available over the counter to all women. He gave the Obama administration until May 5 to appeal his decision.
Sounds good to me. Oh,and less whining from anti-abortion lunatics wanting children to have children.

The Gosnell Murder Trial & the Liberal 'Conspiracy'
Quote :
Now that Dr. Kermit Gosnell's Philadelphia murder trial has finally gone to the jury, we should take a moment to debunk, once and for all, the delusional right-wing claim that "the liberal media" supposedly refused to cover the story because "the liberal media" supposedly didn't want to publicize the dark side of abortion.

Quote :
This claim of a media blackout conspiracy is laughable (no surprise there), as we shall soon see. But, the right's worst delusion is its belief that Gosnell — charged with four counts of killing fetuses during illegal late-term procedures — will be a boon to the national anti-abortion movement.

Perceptions

For instance, conservative litigator Jordan Sekulow thinks that Gosnell's trial "paints the stark and unmistakably abhorrent reality of abortion."

In truth, Gosnell is a classic back-alley practitioner, the kind of quack who thrived prior to Roe v. Wade — and would again if the bad old days ever returned. Gosnell is actually an advertisement for why early abortions should remain legal, with government oversight to keep them safe.\

Gosnell has been on trial since March 18, and the testimony has been gruesome to the point of being unreadable.

Impoverished women with late-trimester pregnancies went to his West Philadelphia clinic, which was like a charnel house. The horrific details were first released in a grand jury report back in 2011 — which was when I first learned of the case. I read about it that year, thanks to a pair of stories in The New York Times.

Coverage in, and since, 2011

Wait, there were news stories about Gosnell two years before he went on trial? What kind of a "liberal media" blackout is that?

Gee, I guess the Times didn't get the conspiracy memo.

Nor did the Philadelphia Inquirer, which has long tracked the Gosnell story.

Nor did the Associated Press, which has run roughly 20 stories since jury selection.

Nor did NPR, which did a Gosnell story two years ago.

Nor did Time magazine, which started covering the story two years ago.

Nor did Slate, the online magazine, which started covering the story two years ago — as did The Daily Beast.

Nor did NewsWorks - the website you're now reading - which has been on the case since 2011.

And that's just a cursory sampling.

Care to guess who hasn't closely covered the Gosnell story? The conservative press.

Lack of coverage

The Washington Times, for instance, ran an AP story at the outset of the trial, but never sent a reporter to cover it. Instead, the paper has run half a dozen stories about how the "liberal" media supposedly isn't covering it.

That makes good business sense. It's a heckuva lot cheaper to dream up fake conspiracies and complain about them, than to do actual shoe-leather reporting.


But the real howler is the belief that Gosnell will be a great propaganda weapon for the antiabortion movement.

Dream on


The reality is that Gosnell is an extreme anomaly. As The Daily Beast site rightly pointed out — in its coverage 27 months ago — "Gosnell’s clinic was in no way representative of most abortion facilities, which is why the country’s largest organization of abortion providers, the National Abortion Federation, refused him membership and testified against him to the grand jury."

Gosnell is accused of infanticide, which is obviously illegal. He's accused of doing procedures on women who were more than 24 weeks pregnant and, in Pennsylvania, that's illegal. All told, his sordid saga has no bearing on legal abortion as it's commonly practiced in America. According to the Centers for Disease Control, only 1.3 percent of annual abortions are performed on women beyond 20 weeks. Ninety two percent are performed on women before 14 weeks.

To suggest that all abortions should be banned because of Kermit Gosnell is akin to saying that all financial counseling should be banned because of Bernie Madoff, or that all accounting firms should be banned because Arthur Anderson cooked the books for Enron.

On the other hand, if we want more Kermit Gosnells, then, by all means, let's ban all abortions. Let's cut off all access to affordable and safe providers; let's make it tougher for women to find somewhere safe to go. That way, more back-alley butchers would thrive.

Medical abuses would be so common that they'd cease to be newsworthy, and nobody in the press would bother to cover them — unlike the Gosnell story, a news staple since 2011.
