Doesn’t it matter to pro-abortion Americans that medical research proves and doctors testify that viable babies suffer tremendous pain when their necks or spinal cords are slit?
Did you ever think the media in America would get to the point where details, facts, and news about one of the most horrific killing sprees in recent history would be covered-up, minimized, or omitted altogether?
Here are just a few of the disturbing facts about Gosnell and his killing clinic:
· The remains of 45 babies were found by authorities at the Philly clinic.
· Gosnell preyed mostly on poor and minority women.
· Flea-ridden cats defecated freely, including in procedure rooms.
· One 41 year-old victim of a botched abortion, Karnamaya Mongar, died because the clinic was so crammed with junk that it took paramedics 20 minutes just to find their way out.
· Gosnell collected baby feet in jars.
The murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell has cemented forever the fact that the pro-choice media has chosen ideology and politics over journalism and doing their job.
By now, most Americans have witnessed the media’s blatant disregard for the truth. Many liberals in the media even admit they didn’t want to report on the Gosnell horror story because they felt it would hinder progress for abortion rights. It’s been well established, documented, and proven that the majority of both local and elite media have a liberal, progressive worldview.
This is not exactly a newsflash. Earlier this year, I began a series on media bias and began with research showing their complete lack of fair reporting on the abortion issue:
Approximately 83% of Americans feel that abortion should have some restrictions placed on it by law, but only 3% of media elites do. Translation: the media often believe or support the exact opposite of the majority of citizens to whom they report the news.
We should now take it a step further and look at the primary reasons for their bias. Journalism’s first obligation is to tell the truth, and its first loyalty is to citizens. The fact is, the media is not interested in the whole truth if it doesn’t fit their narrative; and their loyalty and allegiance is to their political party, not to the people they supposedly serve and inform.
Most mainstream media outlets are operated by pro-choice liberals, and a so-called ‘journalist’ is surrounded by coworkers loyal to the left. In addition, most would rather obey their liberal bosses instead of report the news fairly and honestly.
As children progress though government-controlled public schools, most get plenty of indoctrination from teachers who are loyal to their union, the government, and the Democratic Party. Naturally, kids end up repeating liberal talking points, even if they don’t know why they believe what they say they believe.
Due to heavy influence and pressure from peers, culture, and those in authority, most of these young people end up supporting abortion. For those who choose journalism and go to college, they receive one-sided instruction from progressive professors. As a result, when they graduate from college and get a job in the news industry, they’ve been converted.
How do you suppose they’d report on the issue of Life when prominent Democratic politicians oppose most restrictions on late-term abortions? Do you think a young news reporter would want to admit the radical abortion views of their hero and president, Barack Obama, who once fought a law that would have protected babies delivered alive during an abortion attempt?
It’s not complicated.
With the truth about the Gosnell clinic finally being exposed, we see the media with their collective pants around their ankles.
They’d naturally hide the fact that during the trial, a former Gosnell assistant (Stephen Massof, who does not even have a medical license) described how he jabbed medical scissors into the backs of babies’ necks or snipped their spinal cords to kill them. Calling it a “beheading,” Massof stated “It is separating the brain from the body.”
They’d obviously refuse to report that a young woman who worked at the Gosnell clinic as a teenager testified that she saw a baby’s chest continue to move, even after the gruesome snipping procedure Gosnell used to end the baby’s life.
It should not take a conservative firestorm to hold the media accountable, but it does. During the Gosnell trial, concerned Americans and citizen journalists used blogs, emails, Facebook posts, and a ‘Twitterfest’ to call attention to a tragic story that should break our hearts. The public deserves to know the truth; but this day and age in America, we must actively demand it from the media.
