Last week, Politico columnist Roger Simon -- formerly an "objective"
reporter with the Baltimore Sun and U.S. News & World Report --
began a column
attacking the head of the National Rifle Association with this
sulfurous sentence: "Wayne LaPierre may have more blood on his hands
than Dracula, but — fair is fair — he also has the guts of a burglar."
Compare this to a search of Politico for the horrific abortions committed at the clinic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, now on trial in Philadelphia: "Your search - kermit gosnell - did not match any documents." No Gosnell stories. Ever. But LaPierre is like a mass murderer:
The Big Three networks' morning and evening newscasts still haven't
covered the murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell as of Monday morning.
ABC, CBS, and NBC have maintained their coverage blackout despite the graphic witness testimony
and the in-your-face courtroom antics of Dr. Gosnell's defense attorney
during the first two weeks of the proceedings. The Philadelphia
physician is charged with murdering seven newborn children at his
decrepit abortion facility. This glaring omission by the broadcast networks would have continued,
if Peggy Noonan hadn't provided the first mention of the murder trial on
Sunday's Meet the Press on NBC. The Wall Street Journal columnist spotlighted the "haunting and disturbing story of this doctor", and pointed out how coverage has been "hard to find."
