Patricia Heaton wonders why no Gosnell trial coverage

Here at Twitchy, we were wondering the same thing.

While today’s news about a federal judge mandating that a girl of any age can get Plan B without a prescription is getting maximum exposure, the trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell is mostly garnering crickets.

And, like Heaton, many have had enough of the silence:

People want news on this horrific story, MSM.  Do your job and give it to them.

  • Maxx

    Liberal media would only be interested in covering this trial if the “alleged” murderer had performed his abortions with a magazine containing more than 10 rounds.

    • Canadian in USA

      Or if he had voted for George W. Bush…or attended a Tea Party rally.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Assault abortions (all of them)

    • 3seven77

      Incredibly astute comment and so tragically true.

  • Wendy Holt-Stone
    • kate_middleton

      Not on tv though….

  • capisce

    If Gosnell had been murdered by a pro-life advocate, you can be assured that trial coverage would be on endless loop on all MSM programming.
    Even they cannot defend infanticide as a women’s health issue.

    • Richard Jefferies

      It would give the left another opportunity for gun grabbing as well. Yes, Gosnell will get about as much coverage as they gave Floyd Corkins of the Southern Poverty Law Center who attempted to murder Christians at the Family Research Council office.

      • Harlan Hikaru Fox

        Or James Jay Lee, the militant environmentalist who took hostages in the Discovery Channel building a few years back.

    • Seriously?

      True. There would be movie after movie about him as well. As far as defending it? I’m not so sure they want conservatives to know the breadth of support for infanticide that is out there among the liberals.

  • notenoughtime

    The propaganda and dumbing down of this country continues. The ability to get an abortion is more important than highlighting the atrocity of the act that if seen would change the minds and hearts of the group then need to keep ignorant.

  • bri

    Where’s Hannity and Greta. Or the dude that is supposed to be looking out for the kids.

    • Greg Legakis

      O’reilly has covered it extensively but you’re right, it’s not enough.

  • Raye09

    Apparently the Jodi Arias trial is more important….

  • Bill Board

    Amazing .. the MSM cares about all the little children who were shot in Newtown but couldn’t care less about all the little children who were aborted.

    • camnpat

      Because for the media one of those is an “atrocity” while the other one is a “right”.

      • E Quilibrate

        How convenient,eh?

    • Christy000

      There’s no reason to show it if they can’t use it to further an agenda.

  • Laurie

    They need time to cover Jodie Arias’ trilal.

  • AaronHarrisinAlaska

    Any one remember the coverage of abuses and misconduct at Tiller’s clinic? No? Any one remember the coverage if his murder? Yeah, there it is v

  • Christy000

    A pro-choice advocate is putting blame on pro-life advocates:

  • $472942

    As Sean Hannity has said many, many times; journalism is dead…

  • bo1921

    Think of the coverage if gosnell had been shot dead and his killer was on trial.

  • Liberals Needhelp

    True. A little on Fox, a little online. That’s it. It should lead the news. Even Pro-Abortion Advocates should be outraged by what this clinic, this supposed doctor, and his team did for a long, long time….. You wonder why Pro-Life advocates go crazy over this topic, fight so hard, are so passionate, know that innocent lives are stolen in a brutal way ….this is why…. Again, Pro-Abortion proponents should be front & center to say THIS type of clinic is not acceptable, even to them…and THIS type of doctor should be prosecuted fully.
    But, everyones too busy following Beyoncé in Cuba, and Lindsay Lohans latest stumble, and Harvey over at TMZ……….amazing.

    • 3seven77

      As I understand it, Gosnell got caught which is the only reason we are hearing about him at all. Imagine how many more “doctors” are out there performing this “women’s health service” that haven’t been caught.

  • linnicy

    I emailed Chicago NBC why no Gosnell coverage, they said the Philly NBC was covering , as it was a local concern. I emailed back said it was a national story that this man was murdering babies and a woman. No response. THE MSM IS SO LEFTIST. I do not usually watch except to get the weather.

  • jennfire

    Unbelieveably, I read recently that the UK is trying to legalize infanticide up to the baby’s age of 2! Now it is all sick.. it never ends!

  • radicallyalyssa

    I like how Twitchy uses really amazing pictures for conservative people like in this post with Patricia Heaton, but with moronic libs they use hilariously unflattering images.

    • Michael Rice

      Well, if the pixels fit.

    • Heather_A

      That type of stuff is common accross the board.


  • rivers

    Same media that thinks late term abortion providers should have armed protection.

  • descolada9

    And this is all the more reason why people should not follow the leftist news organizations anymore. They are doing the general populace a disservice. The best thing that will happen is when they lose so much money that they finally have to shut down.

  • John F. Gordon

    Pat, The story doesn’t conform to what the progressives (liberals)believe in. Simple as that. BTW..I’m an old neighbor from Knickerbocker Rd. and St. Rapheal”s.

  • TMZ2

    Patricia Heaton like Melissa Joan Hart, Stacy Dash, Gary Sinise Jon Voight and others who are the few conservative actors in Hollywood are pretty smart. She knew about a trial I had never heard of. She obviously knows what is going on and has a brain. Unlike lightweights like Ellen Barkin and Jim Carrey.

    Well shame on the media for not caring and ignoring. Our media is Pravda. The Gosnell trial should the top story on newscasts. LifeSiteNews has been following the story it seems and has a piece about the media blackout.
