This photo of empty ‘Reserved media’ seats at the Dr. Kermit Gosnell trial needs to be made viral. Needs to reach the low information voters.
Anyone following this case and the horrific details—the magnitude of horrors that happened daily at the hands of Gosnell—should outrage everyone to see the empty media seats. The documentary video below is a must see, although it is extremely difficult to watch, thus a Content Warning should be considered. One woman explains she changed her mind when hooked up to a monitor and saw the heart beat of the baby, but at that point the doctor and nurses tied her down and forced the abortion against her will. The woman can no longer have any babies after Gosnell’s handiwork.
Patheos provides some insights into their personal efforts to obtain media interest:
Inspired by Kirsten Powers’ USA Today column yesterday, I decided to start asking journalists about their personal involvement in the Gosnell cover-up.
I began by asking the AP’s national social issues reporter why he hadn’t been tweeting to AP coverage of the Gosnell trial. I had to ask a few times and then … there it was … finally …. a tweet on the Gosnell trial. Then he told me that the AP was covering the trial (which I knew, as I’ve critiqued it here). I reminded him that I was wondering why he hadn’t been tweeting to coverage of Gosnell. I asked him to correct me if I was wrong about his lack of tweets. He didn’t.
JD Mullane of the Bucks County Courier Times, one of the few reporters covering the trial, offers another reason more reporters aren’t rushing to fill the seats in this tweet:
Sat through a full day of testimony at the Kermitt Gosnell trial today. It is beyond the most morbid Hollywood horror. It will change you.
More posted at Breitbart here and here along with an excellent WashingtonTimes article on chiding the mainstream media for shirking their journalistic responsibilities. BuzzFeed shows a yearbook photo of Kermit Gosnell that offers a chilling prophecy:
“We are sure he will make a mark for himself in his chosen field of medicine.”
