I often hear liberals tell me that there is no liberal media bias and that I should remove the tin foil head gear and stop listening to the voices in my head. I understand their attitude if I were the beneficiary of a stacked deck I wouldn't be going out of my way to admit it either.
Well ladies and gentlemen we have a trial that has been going on in the city of Philadelphia that may well be the trial of a man who is the single most prolific serial killer in American history to date.Dr. Kermit Gosnell a Philadelphia abortion provider is on trial for his alleged responsibility in the deaths of 7 infants and 1 woman. Testimony from co workers and employees of Dr.Gosnell however indicates that there may have been hundreds of these killings over the years at Gosnell's abortion clinic.
They say our news media has a unwritten policy that is ....IF IT BLEEDS IT LEADS .... well here we have according to sworn testimony a Doctor who may well have killed hundreds of babies and by one of the most gruesome methods imaginable, beheading the victims by snipping their spinal cord at the neck using scissors. With all that one would think that this story would at least receive the same sort of news coverage as the shootings at Newtown or perhaps the same rabid ferocity the press displayed in covering the death of Trayvon Martin. It has all the requirements the press seek .... a body count ....children ....largely minority children.... largely poor victims ..... a respected minority member of the community accused of a horrific crime. You would think ....right, well let me ask you, have you heard any coverage ..... at all, I'll bet not.
Abortion is one of the liberal third rails, touching it brings out all of the professional left in a single unified voice, all marching in step. The professional left largely marches lock step supporting each other regardless of the insanity of their groups individual positions but concerning abortion they are true believers you will have the tree huggers... pro abortion ....anti war...anti gun .... the race baiters .... pro amnesty.... open borders .... the communists and the liberal press join together in a swirling mass of indignation. Well here we have a case that exposes the true evil of abortion and from the media we have a silence in which you can hear a snowflake hit the ground. And yes this is what our president supports, just this type of after birth abortions and the crickets chirp. Excuse me a sec while I loosen my tin foil and turn down those pesky voices in my head.
