Kermit Gosnell Media Blackout

It would be hard to imagine a more striking story than the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Yet the establishment press puts its devotion to leftist ideology even above cashing in on this lurid tale. Via Human Events:

A Delaware woman who worked for abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell recalled hearing one child “screaming” after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure at Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic.

Sherry West, of Bear, said she was loyal to Gosnell — who is now facing multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing children after they were delivered alive at his clinic — but said the incident “really freaked me out.”

When Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore pressed the 53-year-old West for specifics about the incident, West struggled to answer, clearly uncomfortable with the memory.

“I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.

West said she saw the child, whose face and features were not yet completely formed, lying on a glass tray on a shelf and she told a co-worker to call Gosnell about it and fled the room.

It’s a horror movie, yet real. The public would certainly be interested. Yet the reserved media seating at the trial has been empty:

Gosnell-media-seating-seating

Could it be because liberals’ god, Barack Hussein Obama, is infamous for his fanatical advocacy of denying medical treatment to infants who survive attempted abortions as an Illinois state senator? Or is it because his close allies at lavishly federally Planned Parenthood are involved in a similar case:

A series of emergency calls made from the Planned Parenthood of Delaware this year are raising concerns about what’s happening behind the closed doors.

Two former nurses who both quit are speaking exclusively with Action News about what they saw inside.

Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, former employee said, “It was just unsafe. I couldn’t tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was.”

Werbrich alleges conditions inside the facility were unsanitary. …

“Planned Parenthood needs to close its doors, it’s needs to be cleaned up, the staff needs to be trained, said Werbrich.”

In Delaware, abortion clinics are not subject to routine inspections. The state only steps in when they have a patient complaint. Planned Parenthood is essentially in charge of inspecting itself.

Good thing local media isn’t always on the same page as the big boys with a seat at Obama’s table, or the public might never know.

Kirsten Powers, a liberal who shows encouraging signs of converting to sanity, is justifiably outraged:

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.”

The implications for the ultimate moonbat sacrament (abortion) and by extension its most aggressive champion (Obama) are clear:

Planned Parenthood recently claimed that the possibility of infants surviving late-term abortions was “highly unusual.” The Gosnell case suggests otherwise.

Thus the national media is blacking it out:

A Lexis-Nexis search shows none of the news shows on the three major national television networks has mentioned the Gosnell trial in the last three months. The exception is when Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan hijacked a segment on Meet the Press meant to foment outrage over an anti-abortion rights law in some backward red state.

The Washington Post has not published original reporting on this during the trial and The New York Times saw fit to run one original story on A-17 on the trial’s first day. They’ve been silent ever since, despite headline-worthy testimony.

It isn’t just that the liberal media refuses to accurately depict what is going on in the world, effectively lying by omission. What is truly unnerving is its motives for lying. The people who program our televisions and print our newspapers don’t want the horror exposed because they don’t want it to stop.

A prime reason the liberal media doesn’t want to touch this explosive story.

  • StanInTexas

    As sickening as this whole episode is, it is instructive as well. The national Media gets to decide was is AND IS NOT a story. Just like some “unbiased” news networks refused to air or mention Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, that are blacking out this episode to protect the sacred cow of abortion.

    People that would do these things to a child are NOT HUMAN!

    To the Left, ideology trumps all. Can you imagine how powerless the Left would be if we were (not) a nation of weak, gullible, and mindlessly distracted sheep?

  • Skyfall

    OK, I’ve made the point in the past that while I know abortion is killing, I don’t think in a lot of cases it’s murder (i.e. the woman really doesn’t believe a fetus is a human or truly understand it’s not “her body”).

    This story, however is BEYOND murder. This is Mengele-style atrocities. Gosnell is a MASS murderer, and all the people who support him (and KNOW, for a fact, what he is doing) are the same. That includes Ms. Sebelius, Obama and anyone else who understands what this in-human monster does and still enables him.

    The press must be destroyed. That they would knowingly look the other way on this means that they are possibly the BIGGEST enablers of this crime against humanity.

    But don’t worry. Now that we find out the gov’t lied to us about N. Korea’s missile capability, a city near you will soon be vaporized. That “good crisis” won’t “go to waste”, and little things like an Auschwitz-style abortion mill will have even less chance of getting covered by the media.

    I feel sick.

  • Skyfall

    (Just to be squeaky clear, I was saying if a woman truly doesn’t know that a fetus is human, or that it’s alive and not “part of her body”, then while an abortion is killing, it’s not “murder” on the part of that woman. The doctors, that’s another matter.)

    The Pro-Choice crowd of Gargoyles cannot let this event in the open. If it gets out it will be the Nuking of the Planned Parenthood business. Hope this gets out. I am calling the town’s newspaper to find out why no news about the Infanticide. Philadelphia is a sad place to be…

  • Clingtomyguns

    I had a dream, brother …. that the next time Obama signs a bill, instead of his usual exploitation of Newtown families who play into his corrupt hands because they are so grief-stricken the want to do something, even the wrong thing, to mitigate their pain, some of those families would have the courage to walk up with pictures of an aborted baby head, severed feet, and snipped spinal cords when the cameras are rolling and the press is unsuspecting and put in front of him and say, we can’t bring our children back, we’re not interested in destroying the second amendment and we know you’re trying to use us as props to do just that, but you and your party are supporting the butchers who are doing this and you need to put and end to it now and do something real to stop the slaughter of innocent childrens’ lives Mr. President. Time to end the federal government’s culture of death and war on innocent children.

    Conservatives should use any precious opportunities they have on these liberal talk shows to swing the debate or discussion to this murder.

  • token liberal who acknowledges reality

    Too bad that there isn’t more funding to these places, so that they could be, you know, clean and efficient.

    Of course there will always be people who for their own reasons choose not to have a baby. It is obvious, is it true, it is legal, and it is the law of the land.

    All of the bible-belt red state representatives try to defund Planned Parenthood more and more. Obvious result: seeing more and more of these stories. It will only get worse unless there is funding to do it right.

    More funding for these places means fewer of the hyper creepy stories. Do any of you understand that, or is this just going to fall on deaf ears?

    (Don’t bother replying with religious nonsense – this statement I am making is about actual reality, and the consequences of decisions made by conservative leadership. Nothing more.)

  • Tax Slave

    Skyfall,

    If a woman believes the fetus isn’t a person, then she’s innocent by reason of insanity, legally defined as not knowing right from wrong.

    Our job therefore is to tell everyone the TRUTH.

  • Tax Slave

    Token,

    It was also legal to kill Jews in Nazi Germany. The righteous Gentiles who helped hide and rescue Jews were lawbreakers.

    Slavery was legal and the law of the land in this county for too long. The conductors on the Underground Railroad were criminals.

    More funding would make for the cleanest, most efficient slaughterhouses in the world.

    THAT STILL DOESN”T MAKE IT RIGHT regardless of your religion (or lack thereof).

    MGHMOYS.

  • Sam Adams

    Sorry, Token…..what has the left done to make abortion “rare?” Where is the educational effort to explain that abortion is not an acceptable alternative to either contraception or simply “just saying no?”

    Just because something is legal doesn’t make it right. Just because something is the law of the land doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t fight against injustice and atrocity.

    Since Roe v Wade, over 50 million unborn babies have been sacrificed. Abortion is an immoral, abomination, worse by far than slavery. I would not spend a single red cent to assist a woman trying to kill her unborn child unless she would die if she attempted to carry that child to term.

    Planned Parenthood is a slaughterhouse for unborn humans. You are suggesting that if they had more money, the floors of the slaughterhouse would be cleaner, and maybe the walls would be painted more often….or they would be more efficient….maybe 60 million dead babies instead of 50 million. It doesn’t change the nature of the abomination.

    Go ahead…..justify your position.

  • StanInTexas

    Token, when Abortion was forced in this nation by judicial fiat, we were told it had to be protected at all costs? Why? Because if it was not, women would die getting unsafe and unclean abortion, and children would be senselessly killed after birth.

    So here is Gosnell, doing all of those things. And why did he claim to do it? FOR THE MONEY!

    You are an idiot!

  • Token is Vox.

  • Xavier

    1) We have only two major problems in this country: the economy and a liberal media.

    2) If fetuses aren’t human, why are people who kill pregnant women charged with two homicides?

    @token Oh really? No one here was asking. This isn’t fakebook or your faculty lounge kumbaya focus hug circle jerk and we are not your friends.

  • brainwashed liberal who fabricates ‘reality’

    Don’t poison that chicken that’s an embryo.

    Human embryo? Ah, just throw that thing away!

    [see earlier post]

  • How do liberals respond to Gosnell? “More regulations, more availability so we won’t get embarrassed like this again.” More clean murders.

  • Skyfall

    Ghost, I was not speaking of bureaucrats and doctors who know better (although I suppose some bureaucrats might not…can’t over-estimate their intelligence). I simply mean that a woman (and I knew several) that honestly do not think a fetus is a human being are not someone you should run up to and scream “YOU F-ING MURDERER” at. (And trust me, when those women understood that a human…not just tissue…was killed, they were devastated.)

    I think most people when reasoned with, will come to the conclusion that a fetus is a life and not just a lump of cells. Again, I’m speaking of individual women, not the doctors or politicians. Now, if some woman KNOWS damn well it’s a life, but says “Well, it’s legal and I don’t want to be bothered with a kid, so go for it”, then that’s a totally different story.

    I know several women who’d had abortions (I’m going back to the early 80’s) and (at the time) didn’t think they were doing anything wrong. They certainly see it differently now, however if someone insisted on screaming “NAZI MURDERER” in their faces at the time, it would have served no purpose but to make them see pro-life people as wild-eyed fanatics.

    Some here (not talking to you, Ghost) forget that some people are still living in delusion (just think of those under the spell of Obama and the progressives), and truly “know not what they do”. We need to bring them into realizing the truth and not entrench them into their present beliefs even further. They usually make the strongest advocates for truth (in this case, life) because upon waking up, realize the evil of the lie they were told.

    “Doctors” like Gosness, politicians and anyone else that understands what they’re doing but still insists on going forward with it deserve everything they’re going to get.

  • Jester

    broken liberal who acknowledges unreality says:

    Too bad that there isn’t more funding to these places, so that they could be, you know, clean and efficient.

    Infanticide, clean or otherwise, is the most heinous crime possible.

    Of course there will always be people who for their own reasons choose not to have a baby. It is obvious, is it true, it is legal, and it is the law of the land.

    But that doesn’t make it right, moral, or acceptable.

    All of the bible-belt red state representatives try to defund Planned Parenthood more and more. Obvious result: seeing more and more of these stories. It will only get worse unless there is funding to do it right.

    Infanticide is the worst possible wrong, even when done “right”.

    More funding for these places means fewer of the hyper creepy stories. Do any of you understand that, or is this just going to fall on deaf ears?

    So infanticide is ok, as long as it’s not “hyper-creepy”… OK. And you call MY ears “deaf”?

    (Don’t bother replying with religious nonsense – this statement I am making is about actual reality, and the consequences of decisions made by conservative leadership. Nothing more.)

    Not all of us conservatives are religious, my ignorant friend. Conservative leadership? Oh, let me guess: Bu$hitler, right? (yawn)

  • Musicmaven

    Abortionists make recent mass shooting murders look like complete amateurs!
    Where is the outrage?

  • Eric

    Look at the bright side…
    That’s 50 million fewer Democrat votes. Heck, that’s 50 million fewer people who would now be on welfare/foodstamps/disability, etc…

    Of course the 60 million illegal residents that have flooded the border rather offset the “gain”.

    Truth be told, funding the abortions USED to be cheaper than paying for the entitlements of the poor, but now that scheme has crashed on it’s face and someone has to come up with a much better plan.

    Who has a better idea?

  • Skyfall

    Great dissection there, Jester. As to broken libs comment about “religious nonsense” and “reality”, I truly feel sorry for people like that…but then, if you read the Bible, folks who think that way were around then and foretold to be around now.

    Nothing is new under the sun.

  • Mr Evilwrench

    I don’t even come to it via religion. I’m not a Christian, I’m not anything. I reject all the labels. As a scientist, as an engineer, I understand that the first cell with unique DNA, the instant the sperm fertilizes the egg, it is a human, with human DNA of its own, unlike any other human. Therefore, to me, it has the same human rights that I do, and deserves the same protection I would expect. If someone tried to murder me, I’d shoot him in the face. If he tried to murder my child, same thing. I don’t care how many cells I or my child has. Trying to murder one of us will not prove to be a good idea. You don’t have to agree with me, but please think about what you believe.

  • Mr. Rational

    Planned Parenthood recently claimed that the possibility of infants surviving late-term abortions was “highly unusual.” The Gosnell case suggests otherwise.

    Gosnell didn’t do abortions.  He induced labor to produce premature deliveries, then dealt with the results.  There’s a difference.
