Why so little coverage on this?

While I disagree with the comment of ZERO coverage, why has there been so little coverage of this? Print media has been covering it slightly, and the large news outlets such as ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, CNBC, etc all seem to not want to cover this mass murderer's trial

One site, that I won't provide a link to, showed photographs of the death wounds on these babies that tried so hard to live...spinal cords severed at the base of the head, etc. I was physically ill for the rest of the day, and still shudder at the thought of seeing those pictures again.

Why has the media refused to make this a big story??

That's all you've got to say for this?

Various posted stories of this monster's trial can be found on many mainstream outlets. I checked NBC, CBS and ABC, they're all covering it.

Not so much on the television, which is how too many get their news. Even FOX has given it little coverage.

The sheer number of murders this guy is accused of far out weighs those of Newtown. I'm of the belief that the coverage is spotty because of an agenda.

This makes me sick...

Philadelphia abortion clinic horror: Column

Quote:
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.

Not sure what you want everyone to do...

What are you looking for here?

I agree, it's gross. They (we, the people) should take the guy to the town square and bash his brains out with rocks...we should never speak his name again.

Every time someone looks up a thread you post, the advertising companies make a fraction of a penny on the click-through ads.

I don't feel any better knowing that it happened.

Do you feel any better for spreading the news?

Maybe I'll go back to reading about old cars, that seems to help me pass some time, thinking about something positive.

I heard about it months ago for sure. But then I'm in Philly quite a bit. Word has that the guy will get the chair if convicted and good riddance.

Lack of judgement? That would imply lack of mens rea. BMan is a criminal, plain and simple. Lock him up, throw away the key.

Official "word" is Pennsylvania has lethal injection as the sole method of execution.
