Imagine for a moment that there was a right wing conservative caught butchering hundreds of newborn babies in the most horrific of circumstances. Front page news right? Well, the trial of an abortion doctor accused of killing hundreds of mostly black babies in Philadelphia is being almost entirely ignored. Why? The story doesn't fit the liberal narrative as it shines a negative light on abortion.
Kirsten Powers writes in USA Today:
Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven't heard about these sickening accusations?
It's not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell's former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.
NBC-10 Philadelphia reported that, Stephen Massof, a former Gosnell worker, "described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, 'literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body." One former worker, Adrienne Moton, testified that Gosnell taught her his "snipping" technique to use on infants born alive.
Massof, who, like other witnesses, has himself pleaded guilty to serious crimes, testified "It would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place." Here is the headline the Associated Press put on a story about his testimony that he saw 100 babies born and then snipped: "Staffer describes chaos at PA abortion clinic."

for news media at trial.
Powers concludes "The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace." You got that right honey! It's been that way for YEARS!
