The power of Twitter: WaPo, Wall Street Journal finally show up at Gosnell trial; Update: NYT shows up

Wow. Looks like the media is finally seeing the power of Twitter.

As we reported, the reserved media seating at the Gosnell trial was empty last week. Nothing to see here, move along.

Funnily enough, that seems to have changed. Huh. J.D. Mullane, columnist for the Bucks County Courier Times, reports that the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal have deigned to make an appearance today.

Amen. Thank you, J.D. Mullane.

Twitchy highlighted this incredible graph, which showed how Twitter was exposing the horrifying testimony at the Gosnell trial. Keep it up, Twitter. It’s working. Even the lapdogs are now hearing you.

Now that is a dog whistle. The good kind.

Update: More lapdogs shamed into making an appearance.

    Isn’t it funny how the media is spending more time defending themselves as to why they haven’t been covering the trial than they have actually covering the trial itself?

      Didn’t the fetuses out of the birth canal stop screaming when
      their spines were cut at the end of the elective abortion procedure ?

      • $36544368

        Uh…yeah….but in order for someone to stop screaming, they have to be screaming in the first place, and you have to be alive to be able to scream…what’s your point? I’m sorry, I don’t follow what your reply to my post is supposed to mean.

    This morning CBS finally reported on this. They did mention that 7 babies were born alive…but they refused to mention anything about what happened to the babies or about the one baby screaming…they put a pretty pink bow on it and said “it’s just too graphic.”

    Then they put heavy emphasis on the fact that the place was dirty and the drugs used were cheap. They will do anything to run from this but we must keep them cornered.

      Not just cornered, but keep holding their feet to the fire.

      correction, they were “fetuses.” Nevermind they were breathing, crying, and living. Fetuses.

  • Baba Ghanoush

    Step one, getting them to the trial. Step two, report without bias.

    • journogal

      Whoa…hey, who said anything about presenting the news without bias? Seems like you are asking for a lot there.

      The Gosnell Atrocities blow two gigantic, below-the-waterline, holes in the conceits of the left re: Abortion. 1. Partial Birth Abortions are rare and only take place in extreme cases of fetal deformity or threat to the mother’s health and 2. Abortionists are courageous heroes concerned only with the health of women.

    Not that I’d read their “coverage” anyway. Not only do I NOT read the MSM’s leftist drivel, I did away with our cable service. I no longer feel the need to pay 150 a month to watch MSM hacks like O’Reilly, Williams, Snuffleufagus, Sawyer, or Pelley. Or their awful shows (Revolution, Modern Family, Family Guy, etc.).
    Netflix, HuluPlus, antenna for local, and a lot more money to spend.

      I’m with you, I’ve made my demands to Dish and they replied with convoluted bullshit–I’ll be dropping them when the contract period is up. I want the liberal trash off my television.

  • Right Wired

    There media presence at the Travon Martin hearing was 10 fold.

    “In Philly media avoiding seats shown empty in last week’s pic; reporters scattered around courtroom.”

    How dishonest is this??!!! These people have no souls.

      When I think back on my days at college, this totally fits what I remember of the journalism majors. I was naive to believe that they would grow out of it.

  • robert anthony

    Next up…media blames Gosnell murders on You-tube video mocking mohammad.

  • OldmanRick

    The problem with the MSM(Marxist, socialist media) is that it supports planned parenthood and abortion mills. Ergo, do not expect full disclosure to the public of the insidious procedures and their results.

  • Axelgreaser

    THE GHOULISH MURDER TRIAL of Gosnell now being reluctantly covered by a ‘resistant’ MSM, including the ‘NYT’ and ‘WaPo’ and the rest of Barack Hussein Obama’s slavish, adoring Marxist media cover-up artists. It will be a facinating read seeing just how they will justify and excuse snipping the spinal cords and drilling holes into the craniums of unborn fetuses, a procedure the far left fully condones, INCLUDING the Pelosi and ‘voted present’ on partial birth abortion Obama. It will be even more interesting to get an answer via the trial that we could not pry out of Planned Parenthood thugs on just how you can not call for medical assistance to save the life of a tiny helpless human, struggling for breath and looking up to you from the depths of a trash can headed for the dumpster?

    Feeling guilty because YOU as a taxpayer underwrite Obama’s attack on the unborn via unread, unposted, undebated Obama-Roberts Tax Care? Which you were left out of? And yet propels your life! This trial should activate your sense of injustice, because THIS is truly, to coin Obama’s most loved phrase is indeed: ‘Social INJUSTICE!’ No matter how you slice it, dice it or coax it out of the womb with whirring blender blades. Watch this monster Gosness get off with a wrist slap and even lauded by the insane left from Hollywood on down the sewer. Or am I just becoming more and more mistrustful of the legal system and it’s relationship between good, evil, guilty and innocent since the beginning of BHO’s first term and the pass given to the Black Panthers?
