Kirsten Powers, Michelle Malkin quiz the media: #WhoIsKermitGosnell?!/sleannbagley/status/322105980882141185

Regular Twitchy readers will recognize the name Kermit Gosnell. Horrific details of the Philadelphia abortionist’s murder trial have been passed around like a dirty secret for nearly a month, and yet the trial has escaped most mainstream media coverage. Do the national outlets really have no idea what’s going on in the courtroom, or is the alleged murder of live babies in an abortion clinic a truth too inconvenient to publicize? If it’s the former, maybe a hashtag could generate some curiosity.

#WhoIsKermitGosnell The mirror the left dare not look into, lest they see horror their sacred cow has wrought. Abetting evil w/blind eye.

Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers has taken notice and has devoted a USA Today column to the media blackout.

My @usatoday column running in paper tomorrow: PA abortion clinic horror: We’ve forgotten what belongs on Page One…

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.

@kirstenpowers10 Thank you for writing that. As heartwrenching as it is, America needs to be aware.
