Empty chair media: Reserved media seating at #Gosnell trial ’empty all morning’ [photo]

It’s a photo that speaks volumes about the corrupt media’s silence on Kermit Gosnell’s abortion house of horrors.

John Nolte covered the photo at Breitbart.com this morning and it’s been picked up by Drudge.

More at the Get Religion blog at Patheos.

It’s thanks to the tweets of a local journalist that we have this appalling visual of the national media’s blackout.

Bucks County Courier Times columnist J.D. Mullane reports that there were just “nine people in the seats” at the Gosnell murder trial on Thursday and only local press showed up.

One Twitter user asked if bloggers would be able to cover the horrifying testimony.

There’s plenty of space and no media credentials are necessary, according to Mullane.

Once again media, what say you?

    Guess the MSM approves of the guy.

      I think it’s more a question of if they don’t cover it, it’s not happening. Keep the LIVs controlled at all costs. A story like this cannot be controlled or explained away.

    I guess the “most successful serial killer in history” doesn’t warrant any attention by the media. I guess they have better things to cover, like how all gun owners are evil and why Obama should be King of the United States.

    If a sick and perverted, Dr. Mengele is on trial for government funded and approved murder. The people have both the “right” and “need” to know about it!

    I believe jdmullane has been officially promoted from blogger to reporter.

      You sure going from blogger to reporter is a promotion?

        Man tough crowd in this thread. I gave you a few ^

        I’ve seen in a few threads your posts are being DV’d, like someone is stalking you. Did you make an enemy today (with your sound logic/reason)? 😉

  • gracepmc

    Independent unbiased reporting is now an act of courage, not a job requirement. A serial murderer and the screams of a newborn will not shame these people to show up and report.

    Everything we believed about the democrat party and the mainstream media is true. Our worst fears are confirmed.

    Isn’t that what we’ve learned in these last few years?

    To the squishy republican moderates. Do you finally understand that the culture has gone insane and must be renewed? Will you finally quit siding with these monsters in the name of bipartisanship and civility?

    They are barbaric.

      Looks like were aren’t ‘wing-nuts’ after all. Just hyper-vigilant and keenly observant…oh, and totally on the money with our assertions.

      That’s a good post, but the GOP elite is too probably busy counting their coins just like the left.

  • marcellucci

    I see MSM’s ” No Snitchin’ ” policy is in full force and effect….

    It is not surprising that the left wing media doesn’t cover this story. They are way too busy helping Obama pass gun control measures. On Morning Joe, Biden actually praised Joe for all his help on trying to get these laws passed. This is not what the media should be doing. It is disgraceful. I am so outraged and disgusted with this so called media. It is not their job to help Obama. It is their job to report and ask the tough questions. I can’t believe how low this country has sunk.

    Ace made a great observation that the photo of the empty benches is Pulitzer worthy (or whatever award is given to photographs). It speaks volumes about their lack of bias…or lack of lack, as the case may be.

  • TruthIsAbsolute

    Two possibilities: 1) they just don’t care, 2) they can’t stomach the vile manner in which “choice” is accomplished.

    • shimauma

      liberal MSM, I’m betting they go with #1 since they really don’t have a moral code to be upset by the actions of this baby murdering monster.

      I’ll take door #1.

      The media used to brag about itself in Iraq coverage.

      Or maybe 3) they know that this might get LIVs to start thinking about things that don’t jive with the program.

    The ship has already sailed on this story for BHO and his stenographers. There is no way they can pay any attention to this story without having to answer some very uncomfortable questions (his voting record, their previous silence on this story, etc.). So the word is out: Nothing to see here, move along.

    Too bad they’re getting tripped up by Twitter :)

  • Linda White Besink

    this photo is the perfect metaphor for the dino media’s lack of morality, objectivity and soul.

  • cgraham77

    This picture actually brings tears to my eyes.

    They care more about protecting their precious effing AGENDA than they do about giving these MURDER victims a voice! Nobody freaking cares.
