    Counterpoint:

    If you've never heard of the Gosnell story, it's not because of a coverup by the liberal mainstream media. It's probably because you failed to pay attention to the copious coverage among pro-choice and feminist journalists, as well as the big news organizations, when the news first broke in 2011. There would be something rich, if it weren't so infuriating, about these (almost uniformly male, as it happens) reporters and commentators scrambling to break open this shocking untold story. You know, the one that was written about here, here and here, to name some disparate sources.

    Yeah. And along with that, well, I know about the story. I've read about it probably 5-6 times over the course of the last month or so (?).

    The reserved media seats at the trial yesterday morning. Apparently just local news and a couple of smaller news blogs were the only ones that showed up.

    Also, lest people think the horror of Gosnell's infanticide is universally condemned this testimony shows that's clearly not the case.

    Post birth abortion?
    Sounds like blue suicide.

    There's a reason why I just used the term "infanticide."

    I did notice it (I think there was even a thread about it on this site) and it was underreported then, too.

    Partial birth abortions were banned, so we decided to go ahead with full birth abortions

    I would also like to point out that everything I am personally interested in or offended by is under-reported, because I am a needy little bitch

    It annoys me when people complain about minor stories like this not being covered when truly massive stories like the LIBOR scandal are covered just as poorly. "The media has a liberal bias, blah blah blah"...bullshit. The media has a bias toward protecting those in power and making money. The only time the media does anything interesting is when those two goals conflict, which is pretty rare.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    To call this doctor 'one who performed abortions' is a joke.
