Never mind for a minute that mass-murder trial going on in Philadelphia; today, the media and its watchdogs are putting each other on trial for ignoring the story of eight alleged murders, including seven newborns. Fox News’ “The Five” was among many outlets that discovered the story today; so, doesn’t it follow that Greg Gutfeld and his co-hosts were essentially responsible for leading the cover-up that isn’t really a cover-up? Media Matters senior fellow Eric Boehlert investigates.

CNN was among those news outlets asking how such a horrifying story had escaped media coverage for so long. Does CNN count on “The Five” to break the news so that every other network and newspaper can follow-up? It seems that way, as CNN senior digital producer Steve Krakauer also called out three of “The Five” for ignoring the same story that CNN hasn’t touched.

Would anyone else from CNN like to pile on? How about CNN contributor Donna Brazile, who entered the Gosnell fray by tweeting Media Matters’ “blame the pro-lifers” take before eventually zeroing in on “The Five” — by linking to … Media Matters.

We guess this is the reason Chris Hayes’ new show is called “All In.” He likes Media Matters’ post too.

At least we finally have the answer to the question, #WhoIsKermitGosnell? Now we know: he’s that evil, evil man Greg Gutfeld and his co-hosts have been covering for. Anything to say for yourself, Gutfeld?

    I’m gonna be lazy and repeat my comment from another site talking about Jake Tapper covering this today on CNN with a clip from the documentary about Gosnell.

    It’s a complicated issue with stark facts. The guy murdered viable babies under the guise of providing what pro-choice people consider a ‘right’. This also reveals a difference in attitudes on the left. There’s pro-choice and then there’s pro-abortion. Pro-abortion types like Obama have no issue with 3rd trimester and live-birth abortions. The baby is a malignant disease that must be ended without question or quarter. If you watched the documentary clip, it’s plain to see that counseling was one way and worked to create a type of societal norm about having abortions. That’s a bit different than the safe, legal and rare argument. What many have been complaining about was the vacuum of coverage over the past couple of weeks while grisly details have been emerging. This was in stark contrast to other sensational stories, and the feeling was that it was due to the unwillingness of the media to acknowledge that this was happening under the guise of a women’s medical center. If this was happening here, with this otherwise stand up dude Doctor Gosnell, how was it that he got away with it for so long? Is it because no one who is pro-choice likes to think about the corners that are cut and the lines crossed in the abortion business? Or maybe the pro-abortion crowd doesn’t want anyone to talk about what’s going on for fear that it will lead to regulation (that government solution to all the other problems and non-problems in the world).

    So you can stick to schadenfreude if you want to describe some of the feelings Pro-life supporters are having over literally forcing greater coverage from mainstream media news providers. There’s certainly some of that, but it goes further because this single court case is so horrific it is also forcing people who’ve been sold a bill of goods about how to think about abortion to reexamine what really happens in that room and what it means to end a life so casually. To quote somebody you may have heard of “If there’s even one life that can be saved, then we’ve got an obligation to try,”

    • barbara dikes

      you hit all the nails on the head. What a lot of us have thought of as murder for a long time, Obama and pro choice looks at it as more of a “population” control. Kind of like the MD assessment of the elderly patient under Obamacare. Once we have lost our “Humanity”….all is lost. We are at the brink of another holocaust. We do not know how many Tillers, Gosnells are out there. It sickens me to see us lose the very fabric that makes us human…our compassion for life.

    • Saddlebum

      Good post! You know, I found it very ironic today that, (abortion friendly), CNN did alot of coverage of the poor 15 year old girl that was raped at a house party while intoxicated and passed out and then later hung herself over that and the internet pictures of the atrocity. So sad that it still makes me cry! But those same liberals showing so much concern and sadness about that poor victim would not have batted an eye if the girl’s mother had chosen to end her daughter’s life on the birthing table. That’s what happens when liberals decide what’s morally right and wrong!

      • Lynelle Hullsiek

        Yep, well said, they’re children themselves. And they seem rather proud of it. How DARE anyone expect them to be responsible for their own actions. (Let’s not forget those who were toting the penises into this equation either.) How DARE we not get exactly what we want exactly when we want.
        They are truly beyond obnoxious and watching the MSM is truly abhorrent.

      But yet you are the same person who would rail against anyone getting food stamps, public assistance or free medical care so it seems you are not pro life but pro birth

      • http://twitter.com/BrianPHovland Brian H (wackobird)

        …….HOW in the world are those concepts related? I can’t wait to know. Food stamps,public assistance and “free” medical care relate to people who are way past birth and down on their luck. Snipping a live human baby’s spine is just DEMENTED. That is where anti-life beliefs lead. Every baby born has a home waiting for it if it is not wanted. Liberal policies on adoption need a little tweaking too.

        • WWMD

          Psst. Many mothers are malnourished and delivery extremely low birth weight babies and many don’t make it. But you don’t want them “taking”. And I would LOVE to hear what tweaking adoption policies need

          • lana ward

            Psst. 50 million people are on food stamps and women who are pregnant get WIC. If they are malnourished, they choose to be. Maybe it’s time to stop giving food to 12 million illegals and send them home!!!

          • WWMD

            you have to make under 900 a month to qualify which is certainly justified in needing them and if they are malnourished they choose to be is one of the most ignorant stupid statements I have heard here tonite and i have heard some amazingly ridiculous ones.

        • WWMD

          there are things we ALL need ALL of us. therefore ALL should have it not just the fortunate. and it costs what it costs period…in fact it can drive costs down, many young healthy people dont have health insurance but if they became part of the group it drives costs down not up. 80 percent of the medical is used by about 10 % of the populace over and over, having medicare pay for scooters to ride around in cause they are too fat to walk i saw a lady well over 300 lbs on her scooter going through drive thru at wendys when u talk to these people they are the small government cutback types but they got the scooter from medicare…cause they were not talking about themselves

            its not nonsense its fact. and its not the government taking it over that is ridiculous. why are other countries able to do it so brilliantly and we have fallen to about 20-25 in comparison many powers that be want stupid people as they are much easier to control and they are busy worrying about the frickin Kardashians etc. its steady decline went far south with no child left behind…teachers cannot teach because the are too busy teaching the ridiculous standardized tests.

  • ConservaWynne

    Ann Coulter called it – This could possibly be the beginning of the end of abortion and the democrats and liberals are already blaming conservatives and Republicans. As with slavery, they are rewriting history so they come down as those always opposed and conservatives as those “Guilty.”

    • Harry A

      i doubt this is even close to the end of abortion, i highly doubt that we’ll see abortion deemed illegal anytime soon in this country. most people will probably agree that so called “late term” abortions should be finally ended, but they will allow babies before this arbitrary point to continue to be aborted. this is because many people dont view them as babies yet, and as such calling them baby killers has no effect on these people. unless “science” deems them to be humans abortion is likely to continue. sad but true.

        A lot of that has to do with news outlets self-censoring any pictures of what the procedure looks like. The same news outlets have no problem showing other invasive surgeries and war injuries which could be deemed equally “offensive.”

        • trixiewoobeans

          I’ve been seeing these pictures for some time now. Absolutely heartbreaking. I think every Pro-Choice person in America should see them. If they truly think they make “educated” decisions, it’s only right they’re educated FULLY on this. You shouldn’t be allowed to make life-or-death decisions without being aware of the consequences. This is war, and they need to see the bodies. They’re not lying out on a battlefield for all to see, not being “bagged and tagged” in front of the news cameras. They need to see the victims of the “closed-door war” at abortion facilities.

            Yup. I saw the ultrasound done for my grandbaby at about 16-20 weeks and recognized his profile when he was born. The babies Gosnell was murdering were older than that. It’s very hard to even contemplate this degree of evil – there is no other word for it.

        • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

          Because the science that a fetus is a living human being doesn’t suit their politics so they change their definition all the time of the point at which a fetus becomes a human being until public opinion forces them to change it again. Scientists play politics just as much as any politician.

          • WWMD

            The part you do not get is that it is a civil union for everyone. That is the governmental function. The religious part is whatever you choose it to be. It does not redefine anyone’s marriage. What you get at city hall is a license that effects a contract between 2 people that’s it. You can go get married in the biggest cathedral and believe upon the end of ceremony that you have some magical beam of god burst through you but that has nothing to do with the civil end of it. You can also go through the drive thru Chappell in Vegas and married by Elvis but both are equally married in governments eyes that is the correct constitutional way. Equal. If my gay friends are married they are married as far as I’m concerned I’m not going to say “hey these are my friends they are civil unionized” See they do not want your support they want the support the constitution guarantees. The most intelligent thing you said is “it’s not my business”. Exactly. Gays are married in many states already. How is your marriage changed? Yeah exactly. The thing about the US is we are a republic and we don’t vote a popularity contest on the civil rights of others. If you actually read the decision in the prop 8 case in the lower court and the 9th circuit it would explain it very clearly. It is a clear violation of the 14 th amendment.

You can bully SCOTUS and redefine it, but most of us, the people who stand for values and not afraid to speak the truth (i.e. anyone other the likes of you) will not support that. Now go away.

            What a idiot you truly are. It’s going to be too bad for you because it already is legal in many states and soon will be everywhere and guess what?

It’s going to be declared unconstitutional and you can go back to your cave and cry about it. It’s already has majority approval in the polls but here is a hint. Civil rights are not a popularity contest. Also marriage has not been what you think it is “since BEGGINNING of Time” as much as you want it to be. Get over it

    Wow! So for some odd reason the lack of coverage is because of ‘The Five.’ Really? So ABC, NBC, CBS, PMSNBC, and CNN are not to blame at all for the lack of coverage? Rather it’s a pro-life network and a show where 4/5 of the co-hosts are pro-life? Wow…the stupidity of liberalism at its finest.

      I think we can all agree that the mainstream media (including Fox), has ignored the Gosnell trial until it was confidently brought to them by the Pro-Life movement. I think it’s EVERYONE’S fault in the MSM that this wasn’t covered until the last 24-48 hours.

      Also Gutfeld’s crack on abortion jokes was tasteless. Abortion is on a short list of things that are never funny.

      • WWMD

        Well here is the thing….just because you people are anti-abortion, does not make you”pro life” in fact, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born, but not a child fed, a child housed or a child educated then they become “the takers” you are not so much “PRO LIFE” but “PRO BIRTH”

        • Patrick Dennehy

          That could not be further from the truth. If that is what you think, you are woefully ignorant. We want every child to come into this world loved and cared for; nurtured and provided for;

          To break cycle of fatherless children, children born out of wedlock, or into broken homes. These children are far more likely to grow up in poverty. To kill the innocent child because of the impropriety of the parents, ranks among the most heinous things imaginable.

          Are you really stupid or is this just an attempt to get a reaction?

          Abortion is a “medical procedure” that in most cases stems from someone not wanting the “responsibility” or “burden” (dear leader) of child.

          Pro-Life is anti-murder from a biblical and moral perspective. Pro-Life is supporting the right to ‘life, liberty and property’ from a constitutional perspective.

          Liberty is being free to do as you wish so long as your actions are causing no harm or infringing on the liberty of someone else.

          Murdering an unborn child is stripping those rights from the most innocent who cannot yet defend themselves.

          • WWMD

            Have you ever sat down and talked with someone who had an abortion. It is not a matter of convenience. And if you think that you are sadly mistaken. But yet you people do not want to help those that are already here. You want budgets slashed and certainly the ones from the republican end slash school lunch programs food stamp wic head start, do not want birth control distributed, or even advocate for government funded care of the mother through pregnancy if adoption was an option. Abortions are way down in this country and would go further if you supported more efforts like birth control through planned parenthood but you want that closed too even though the abortion division is separate and not funded by gov dollars. Yet the main services of providing women health care and birth control are the victims when you misdirect your ire because you were told to. And don’t even talk to me about protecting innocent children when you all who were such supporters of the wars where so many innocent children that were already BORN were ripped to shreads in front of their mothers because you bought the lies sold to you. And wanted $4 a gallon gas to drive your one kid to baseball practice in your hummers and suburbans. There are or were 34 million un insured children with no accesses to decent medical care but in no way was national health care passing if you had anything to say about it. It might cost you a few bucks. Children in THIS country go to bed hungry at night. Why? Because we have made access to food stamps etc so restrictive or no where near enough. 350 a month isn’t gonna feed anyone let alone a family. Then you have to through your communist bull into it when that could not be further from the truth. Liberty to do as you want as long as it doesn’t harm or infringe in rights of others. Yet most of you here are against gay marriage. That liberty thing doesn’t apply there I guess. Doesn’t harm you other than you not liking it certainly doesn’t infringe on your rights. Many Americans use drugs recreationally do not steal, work hard and Ike to have fun how they see fit but you won’t allow that I would bet. And lastly. Your religious beliefs are great. The founding fathers formed a country to protect that because they lived the tyranny of the religious getting ingrained in civil government and the saw to it that they were kept separate. Meaning you have those beliefs. Use them in your life as you see fit but do not ingrain them in laws others who don’t share them have to live under.

          • TocksNedlog

            Yeah, abortions are “way down” — from 1.3 million per year to 1.2 million per year. WAY down.

            It wouldn’t surprise me. I was using the most recent “official” stats available.

          • WWMD

            official stats from what source. not a pro birth site telling you what the CDC figures are instead of actually going directly to the CDC

          • jb

            You’ve got to be careful w/ this WWMD clown… lies through his/her teeth. Pl. UnParenthood did set records of 332K, 329k, and 334K fro 2009-2011! Crap, the guy can’t even cite the differences in the CDC vs. GI total # of abortion numbers. For example, the 700K # doesn’t even come close to the reported # by the CDC, which has never gone below 825K. The GI # has never gone below 1.2M.

          • WWMD

            no we have not had abortions at 1.2 million levels since 1996 hovering around 700-800k now steadily dropping every year The 3 you got was only 3 % of their services out of all the people they see are abortions,

          • WWMD

            #situpandlearn 1.3 million in 1996 to 825.000 in 2008 and falling. that is WAY DOWN and falling more with education on birth control and the morning after pill NOT the abortion pill save your “puke” for someone else

          • jb

            they all had access to health insurance– it is called Medicaid. and don’t forget CHIPS. Access to food stamps restrictive? The lies never stop. Liberal social policies have ruled the day since the mid-60s and the Great Society. These policies have failed. Theses policies are from the politcal stripe you favor. Look no further than the mirror for who bears responsibility for the social problems of today. Of the 10 major cities in the US, perhaps one can be said not to be Democrat run. The others have had a straight 60 years of Liberal rule, and they are social failures. You own it buddy.

          • WWMD

            what bears responsibility for the social problems that are magnified a 100 times over in the minds of most here are things like this site. and the disinformation campaign that started its roots in mid 70’s coming to fruition with the election of Ronald Reagan and the dont trust the media campaign that was so successful and it led you here as a primary source of news that creates the illusion you are getting the real story fair and balanced lol news is not fair and balanced its facts or not. opinion shows are different but real news like We had that brought watergate and the horrors of vietnam and before, only to be trampled on by the likes of agenda driven propaganda wings of the republican party in fox etc. its like Jack Nicholson said in few good men YOU CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH even you put it on me when it is in fact you who create these illusions in your mind that planned parenthood and welfare are the cause of our national debt etc.

            read this then say LIBERAL MEDIA DEATH PANEL WAR ON CHRISTMAS or XMAS (my favorite idiocy) JUDICIAL ACTIVISM (i.e decisions you dont like) like you dont vote on peoples civil rights. policy is voted on civil rights are not policy

            Oh man, your right. It was Ron Reagan’s fault. How could I have missed it. Crap… I forgot about Nixon’s war that was started by boy wonder Kennedy and magnified by LBJ. My bad. And when Cronkite said we lost Vietnam after winning Khe San, we all should have cried. The honest media back then.

          • WWMD

            did you go to school? Vietnam was not started by Kennedy, it was going on for years and Eisenhower got us involved then it was Johnson who sent ground troups and of course our habit of backing vicious dictators turning the other cheek when they slaughtered thousands .

          • jb

            Eisenhower got was the 1st to get us involved? Dude, learn your history. Read up on Truman (he left office in ’53). But of course for you, history only starts with Republican blame.

          • R.C.

            “Have you ever sat down and talked with someone who had an abortion.”
            Yes, I know more than a few who have gone through with child murder and when you boil it all down, its purely for selfish motives. Not a single one, that I personally know, have murdered their kid because child birth was going to endanger their life, only a danger to their LIFESTYLE.

            ” It is not a matter of convenience.”
            Again, the ones I personally know, yes it was. The stats on “to save the life of the mother” are very low to almost non-existent.

            “And if you think that you are sadly mistaken.”
            You are deluded.

            “But yet you people do not want to help those that are already here”
            No one conservative or constitutionalists is against helping anyone. This is a bullshit argument against any of those opposed to a welfare state that is not only breaking our country but promotes a compliant populace dependent on handouts. I would ask, how can you be for programs that by design enslave people?

            “You want budgets slashed”
            Yes. Dramatically.

            “…. slash school lunch programs..”
            Yes. Many of those who qualify for these programs are already receiving , ” food stamp wic..” but cant seem to manage packing a lunch.

            “head start..”
            Is a program that has little to no significant impact on child development.

            “do not want birth control distributed”
            This is another lie. Again, NO one I know advocates for stopping bc distribution. We do not want to pay for it. You know, personally responsibility and goofy shit like that, is what conservative want. If you wish to engage in an activity that warrants bc, buy it yourself.

            “or even advocate for government funded care of the mother through pregnancy if adoption was an option.”
            What?

            “Abortions are way down in this country”
            Way down. So were merely murdering several thousand less but still killing hundreds of thousands, is a good thing. Only in liberal ville. According to the CDC (2009) 12 women were killed by the abortion procedure. By those numbers, shouldn’t we stop stop all abortion anyway, if it SAVES JUST ONE LIFE?

            “and would go further if you supported more efforts like birth control”
            And again. We. Are. Not. Against. Birth. Control.

            “you all who were such supporters of the wars..”
            I cannot speak for every conservative or republican. I am for removing dictators that commit genocide and torture on their own people. I am for exterminating real threats to our Federal Republic. I am not for nation building.

            “ripped to shreds in front of their mothers”
            Because in front of them is soo much worse than inside of them.

            “because you bought the lies sold to you.”
            What lies? Are you segueing to conspiracy-ville?

            “And wanted $4 a gallon gas”
            What?

            “to drive your one kid to baseball practice in your hummers”
            And it finally shows. Your jealous. If you say you’re not, why do you care what anyone drives?

          • WWMD

            i never implied it was to save the life of the mother….that would be more late abortions. And I highly doubt if I asked any of those women they would say it was selfish convenience

          • WWMD

            lets start with conservatives and constitutionalists. wanting to help people. I wont go into the absurdity of that I could point you to a few examples. during the Tea party rallies, a man in a wheel chair who relies on medicare for his assistance had fallen out of his wheel chair and grown me were standing around him throwing one dollar bills at him screaming “if i want you to have my money I will give it to you ” etc and the republican debates when asked about a 26 yo who has no insurance who gets in a life threatening accident the moderator said what would you do let him die, and the YES from the audience was quickly followed by loud applause. your visions of this welfare state of people sitting back relying on handouts is really not factual you have been told they exist but when you check with states through all departments they dont materialize in any way that threatens our economy or budget.

            the budget that kills us and needs to be slashed is the military. yes i want strong defense but the contractor waste and cronyism is so rampant but no one cares you have senators ordering billion dollar aircraft the pentagon says they dont need we sent pallets of money by the millions to the war zone that was supposed to be used to “pay off the locals” then flown right out on private jets to bank accounts on some island

            you are wrong on the Head start program can it be adjusted yes but not eliminated as it is proven success and is only 7 billion which is a blink as the federal gov are concerned. that is 2-3 days of war.

            http://www.rand.org/pubs/research_briefs/RB9145/index1.html

            yes when you search you will see things like ny post saying it doesnt work they are not a newspaper they are a propaganda arm of a political party.

            Nineteen early intervention programs demonstrated significant and often sizable benefits in at least one of the following domains: cognition and academic achievement, behavioral and emotional competencies, educational progression and attainment, child maltreatment, health, delinquency and crime, social welfare program use, and labor market success. In some cases, the improved outcomes in these domains were demonstrated soon after the program ended; in other cases, the favorable impacts were observed through adolescence and in the transition to adulthood. In the case of the Perry Preschool Program, lasting benefits in multiple domains have been measured thirty-five years after the intervention ended

            adapt the best of these in but not get rid of. we are not talking about the better off kids whos parents buy tons of books who have grand parents reading to them all the time like my kids did but kids who dont have that luxury.

            Dont want to pay for a condom or other birth control that would prevent an abortion possibly dumb pennies.

            the advocating for pregnant women,,meaning, if a women is in that spot where she cannot mother a child properly i would think you would support providing support through her pregnancy and subsequent adoption of the baby

            yes it is way down which cannot be looked as terrible. if you did end all abortions now would you agree to help support the child if necessary?

            “I am for removing dictators that commit genocide and torture on their own people.” we sometimes install them and support them because we dont like who they dont like. like saddam back with the war with iran. or supporting the taliban in fighting the russians we like the dictators till we don’t We supported dictators all over the world bad ones… till it was more politically expedient to go against them

            Welllll, we meet again, WWMD (Madonna). I think your heart’s in the right place, but your HEAD is in the ether. Let me address a few of your accusations, cause I’m down here in the front lines, living it and breathing it, and at one time, I was part of it. I have talked to people who’ve had abortions, and YES, MANY were done for convenience. One friend of mine had seven, yes SEVEN. She used it as birth control. When she went in for her eighth, they told her she couldn’t have anymore, so she was FORCED to have that child! Talking about gas prices and “Hummers and Suburbans” being driven to baseball practice…I live in a VERY liberal city. You know who’s driving the big rigs? The Libs. They hide them in their garages, then park their Prius’s in the driveway so everyone thinks they care about the environment. For time’s sake, I’m going to lump the social problems together. No decent medical care for children? I’ve never known one child, and I volunteered in the schools for years, and had my own, who did not get medical care when needed, despite inability to pay. I DID know tons of kids who didn’t get care because their drug and alcohol-addled parents were too busy getting high to notice, or take them to a doctor. They can hustle up a car, or bus, to go score, but they can’t get their kid to a doctor unless somebody does it for them. And here we get to the sticky wicket…drugs and alcohol. Almost without exception, every low-income child then, and now, have parents who abuse drugs and alcohol. That’s where the family’s money is going. That’s why they don’t work. That’s why their kids are going to bed hungry, aren’t cared for, are abused. And those parents use those kids like currency, milking the system, the taxpayers, the churches, the Courts, etc. They are geniuses at squeezing every last drop of social services they can muster, and are experts at playing the “Pity me, I’m poor” game, and everybody does! Nobody has the guts to call them out on WHY. Then, they raise their poor children to do the same. One member of my family is a fourth-generation Welfare abuser. You should hear them complain about what they don’t get (while abusing drugs and laying around) and never lifting a finger to help themselves. They don’t get enough food stamp money? Did you know their “Dealers” give them grocery lists, and they trade steaks, gourmet foods, etc., for drugs, while they buy their kids Ramens, hot dogs and mac and cheese? And, those “recreational” drug users may start out that way, some can keep it there, but it’s a slippery slope, and most tumble down it. Now don’t forget, I’ve been there, done that, got out, but still live in the belly of the beast, in case you think I don’t know what I’m talking about and being “mean” and intolerant. Religion? This country’s founders formed it so Government could not dictate the people’s religion, not the other way around. That’s what they were fleeing from. As I said, I think your heart’s in the right place, but living in Pity City is enabling the enabled, and making prisoners of us all.

          • WWMD

            slightly over generalizing. using abortion for birth control is horrid, but making it illegal does not change anything as it will only create more of what we are talking about here. abortion rates are down, we need to keep pressing teaching birth control make morning after pill more available and no one come back and tell me thats an abortion pill because it is not. countries with lowest unwanted/teen/pregnancy are countries that stress teach and make birth control easily available. but so many here want planned parent hood closed one of the few clinics available to them abortion is not the issue there. it is seperate funded separate so because there are a few scofflaws we need to not help those who need it. poverty is a vicious cycle and hard to break out of it. we need all to assist with stopping it. no wonder so many are on drugs as the misery is no escapable and they can with drugs. not defending. welfare is such a small trivial drop in the bucket when it comes to the US budget. one month of war would pay a years of welfare

            paying for college for those who need the assistance and those WHO QUALIFY with grades, yes because they will more than pay back in long run. and on that note, as germany has had great success and finally they are starting here but needs to be expanded greatly that of corporations or businesses sponsoring students to get trained in the areas they need then they have a job when they get out. Germany takes students by end of 10 th grade, and you know who is college material and who is not, those who are not are trained in a vocational skill and have job opportunities when they graduate. but teachers are hindered by these ridiculous standardized tests that have dropped us to the 20;s in education rankings those countries on top think these types of tests are ridiculous. kids are not the same. pity city is where jesus would have lived by the way…. yes I agree there is abuse but real abuse is not in welfare. Learn about the Federal Crop Insurance program. billions in wasted payouts for fraud…a dust bowl remanent designed to help families caught in the disaster be able to survive. as we know there are no more family farms other than the few that you see at farmers markets majority are huge corporations who scam the system with this crop failure / failed to meet projections and reap billions in government insurance. 100 million + this was just ONE case.

            http://www.news-record.com/news/894310-96/federal-investigators-bust-nc-crop
            and..underreporting of income or high end tax cheats are costing billions in lost revenue. public assistance fraud is at the lowest levels from over 10% to down to around 3% and many of those are over payments by the state workers not the individual

            Oh, Madonna, Madonna, Madonna, you cannot pity people into prosperity, but hey, I was just like you once, hotly denying anything I disagreed with, grasping at straws to bolster my position, making excuses for people to make ME feel like I was a better person And yes, Jesus would have lived and worked in Pity City, but His advice was, “go forth, and sin no more.” Some people do turn to drugs to escape poverty, like the kids of drug parents who are to blame for their poverty, but mostly, people do them cause they’re fun and make you feel good…til they bite you in the butt, and they’d rather do drugs than anything else, and THAT’S the majority. Generalizing on abortion for birth control? Not so, it’s their dirty little secret…a HUGE percentage do it. You forget, I live and breathe this. Birth control not readily available? You can walk into any school nurse’s office anywhere and get fistfuls of condoms, no questions asked, no judgment or condemnation. Truth is, most kids dislike using birth control because it “ruins the spontenaeity”, ruins the “feelings”, the boys don’t think it’s cool, and the big one…”it’ll (pregnancy) never happen to me” (I used that one ALL the time). Schools? Schools were fine until the Department of Education was formed in the 70’s. MY education was like rocket science compared to my kids’. I was still in school when the Dept. of Ed. was formed. I remember the downhill slide, and being delighted cause it was SO EASY, and lame! It was a joke to us, and it’s gotten worse and worse. Get the government involved, and it’s sure to go balls-up. As I said, I volunteered in the schools for years. I cannot tell you how many USELESS, clueless teachers there were, and the good ones would be buried trying to catch everybody up after a previous year with a waster, or buried trying to deal with and meet the needs of the kids of the drug parents. Entire, expensive, state-wide programs were implemented just to deal with these special-needs kids, and all for naught, cause without support from home, it was almost impossible. Those programs have ballooned to monumental proportions as the years go by…with no discernible results, just a giant, money-sucking hole, a feel-good solution to cover lack of personal responsibility. That’s where I worked, for no pay, tutoring these kids and trying to give them the love, support, guidance and time their parents would not, or catching them up cause their teachers couldn’t, or wouldn’t. The standardized tests are bunk, I agree, made easier and easier to cover failing school’s asses. I would not want the government to decide who is college-worthy and who is not. For instance, many of the brilliant minds of the past 150 years wouldn’t have made it…Einstein for example. And quite frankly, colleges have gotten so greedy, so ruled by the tenured, so full of fools, I couldn’t see sending anyone there. Farming has been compromised by, yes, the govt. getting involved. ‘Nuff said. As for tax cheats, our current Administration is full of them. They need to clean up their own backyard first, then take on the others. If you got your stats on public assistance fraud from the govt., they’ve been caught skewering stats like a rotisserie chicken too many times to trust, and people DO NOT ADMIT they’re defrauding the system! Only the clumsiest and most blatant get caught. I know the numbers are huge, I see it and hear it every day. People actually brag about it and share tips on how to work the system! Do you think pity and excuses help them? It just helps them continue on the same road of failure. I am all for helping those in true need, and who are serious about helping themselves, or help the kids of the care less’s…that’s why I volunteer, and donate, although I haven’t got much, but I’m done hearing the excuses and bearing the burden of the millions who refuse to take personal responsibility. In order to really help society, you’ve got to look reality right in the eye, brutal as it often is, and deal with it. It’s not the easy way…it’s the only way. Conservatives aren’t mean and uncaring, they’re realists, and for the past several decades, realism has been shunned. Okay, I’m done. Take care.

            Oh trixwoo, I think you need to come up from air from those trenches sometime…. The answer you all have been clamoring about for fixing the budget etc are just little buzzy buzz words fed to you in small concise tidbits that sound ominous easy to remember (remember what hitler said, propaganda must be presented as to not be over the head of the least smart person it’s directed at, presented in small concise phrases easy to remember repeated over and over no matter paid if its truth or not and those best remembered things are all owned by the right that can be rattled off by any conservashiz as I am in those trenches and see that all the time. Busy store managers at the holidays being hounded by nice little old ladies and some not so nice about happy holidays being lobbed at the like a grenade or my new favorite, the attack on Merry XMAS as “crossing Christ out of Christmas ” perhaps the dumbest thing I have heard. But the real thing burdening us that of course the overlords of the conservowrong won’t ever slip in on a fox broadcast or here at twitchy is the real “entitlement” that is at the root of all problems is tax entitlement. See it’s something that takes more that 2 syllables to explain so the wiring might short circuit in most of twitchy readers from what I can see. They have quite the case of We Will See it When We Believe It which unlike birth control is not covered under Obamacare unfortunately.

            Even after the White House and Congress stagger to reach a last-minute deal to avert yet another budget crisis, there is a fundamental difference in approach between the Obama administration and House Republicans. And those two stark approaches to governing goes to the type of society we want to be: one that protects the needy or one that protects the greedy.
            Surprisingly, the Republicans’ position is crystal clear; they favor extending special favors to the wealthy at the expense of the most vulnerable in our society.
            “Republicans say that from here on, we should do only spending cuts, focusing on entitlement programs. But their approach to entitlements is highly selective — they seek to cut the entitlement programs on the spending side of the budget, whose benefits go overwhelmingly to middle-class and poor families. But they want no deficit reduction to come from the most wasteful and inefficient of entitlements — those embedded in the tax code,” observed Robert Greenstein, director of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities .
            Republican leaders say they will not budge on cutting tax expenditures, a term for tax deductions, exclusions, credits and other tax preferences that disproportionately benefit the wealthy.
            “Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell proclaimed in an op-ed … ‘I have news for [President Obama]: the moment that he and virtually every other elected Democrat in Washington signed off on the terms of the current arrangement, it was the last word on taxes. That debate is over,’” Greenstein wrote. “Similarly, House Speaker John Boehner’s staff declared, ‘As far as we’re concerned, the tax issue is off the table.’ This, despite the fact that Boehner proposed several hundred billion dollars of additional revenues during his negotiations with President Obama only a few weeks ago.”
            What is it that Republicans are so adamant about protecting?
            As Greenstein notes, “Tax expenditures cost about $1.1 trillion a year, far more than Social Security or than Medicare and Medicaid combined and nearly two-thirds more than the total cost of all non-defense discretionary programs.”
            It is such a logical – and fair – place to cut that Martin Feldstein, former chair of President Reagan’s Council of Economic Advisers, said that “cutting tax expenditures is really the best way to reduce government spending.”
            The Urban Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center estimates that for tax year 2011, the top fifth of the population will receive 66 percent of the $1.1 trillion in individual tax-expenditure benefits (the top 1 percent alone will receive 23.9 percent of the benefits), the middle 60 percent of the population will receive slightly more than 31 percent of the benefits, and the bottom 20 percent of the population will receive only 2.8 percent.
            The headline of another Center for Budget Priorities report says it all: “Contrary to ‘Entitlement Society’ Rhetoric, Over Nine-Tenths of Entitlement Benefits Go to Elderly, Disabled, or Working Households.”
            According to the study issued last year: “…”More than 90 percent of the benefit dollars that entitlement and other mandatory programs spend go to assist people who are elderly, seriously disabled, or members of working households – not to able-bodied, working-age Americans who choose not to work.”
            Mitt Romney was arguing the opposite position in a surreptitiously recorded video that contributed to his defeat against President Obama.
            “In Obama’s ‘entitlement society,’ everyone receives the same or similar rewards, regardless of education, effort and willingness to take risk,” Romney charged. “Once we thought ‘entitlement’ meant that Americans were entitled to the privilege of trying to succeed in the greatest country in the world. Americans fought and died to earn and protect that entitlement. But today the new entitlement battle is over the size of the check you get from Washington.”
            That was a callous lie. In fact, the Center for Budget Priorities study notes, “Federal budget and Census data show that, in 2010, 91 percent of the benefit dollars from entitlement and other mandatory programs went to the elderly (people 65 and over), the seriously disabled, and members of working households. People who are neither elderly nor disabled – and do not live in a working household – received only 9 percent of the benefits.”
            Moreover, the study found, “the vast bulk of that 9 percent goes for medical care, unemployment insurance benefits (which individuals must have a significant work history to receive), Social Security survivor benefits for the children and spouses of deceased workers, and Social Security benefits for retirees between ages 62 and 64. Seven out of the 9 percentage points go for one of these four purposes.”
            Contrary to public perception, it is Whites who benefits disproportionately from entitlements.
            “Also, contrary to what a substantial share of Americans may assume, non-Hispanic whites receive slightly more than their proportionate share of entitlement benefits,” the study found. “Non-Hispanic whites accounted for 64 percent of the population in 2010 and received 69 percent of the entitlement benefits.”

          • trixiewoobeans

            Welllll, we meet again, WWMD (Madonna). I think your heart’s in the right place, but your HEAD is in the ether. Let me address a few of your accusations, cause I’m down here in the front lines, living it and breathing it, and at one time, I was part of it. I have talked to people who’ve had abortions, and YES, MANY were done for convenience. One friend of mine had seven, yes SEVEN. She used it as birth control. When she went in for her eighth, they told her she couldn’t have anymore, so she was FORCED to have that child! Talking about gas prices and “Hummers and Suburbans” being driven to baseball practice…I live in a VERY liberal city. You know who’s driving the big rigs? The Libs. They hide them in their garages, then park their Prius’s in the driveway so everyone thinks they care about the environment. For time’s sake, I’m going to lump the social problems together. No decent medical care for children? I’ve never known one child, and I volunteered in the schools for years, and had my own, who did not get medical care when needed, despite inability to pay. I DID know tons of kids who didn’t get care because their drug and alcohol-addled parents were too busy getting high to notice, or take them to a doctor. They can hustle up a car, or bus, to go score, but they can’t get their kid to a doctor unless somebody does it for them. And here we get to the sticky wicket…drugs and alcohol. Almost without exception, every low-income child then, and now, have parents who abuse drugs and alcohol. That’s where the family’s money is going. That’s why they don’t work. That’s why their kids are going to bed hungry, aren’t cared for, are abused. And those parents use those kids like currency, milking the system, the taxpayers, the churches, the Courts, etc. They are geniuses at squeezing every last drop of social services they can muster, and are experts at playing the “Pity me, I’m poor” game, and everybody does! Nobody has the guts to call them out on WHY. Then, they raise their poor children to do the same. One member of my family is a fourth-generation Welfare abuser. You should hear them complain about what they don’t get (while abusing drugs and laying around) and never lifting a finger to help themselves. They don’t get enough food stamp money? Did you know their “Dealers” give them grocery lists, and they trade steaks, gourmet foods, etc., for drugs, while they buy their kids Ramens, hot dogs and mac and cheese? And, those “recreational” drug users may start out that way, some can keep it there, but it’s a slippery slope, and most tumble down it. Now don’t forget, I’ve been there, done that, got out, but still live in the belly of the beast, in case you think I don’t know what I’m talking about and being “mean” and intolerant. Religion? This country’s founders formed it so Government could not dictate the people’s religion, not the other way around. That’s what they were fleeing from. As I said, I think your heart’s in the right place, but living in Pity City is enabling the enabled, and making prisoners of us all.

          • WWMD

            Innocent. Doesn’t only apply to Americans. Don’t pay for abortions but your tax dollars and your moral authority is all good with this? I would bet you unlike MY PRESIDENT were gung HO for the war, designed solely as a robbery of the treasury and all of our tax dollars by not the takers but the contractors.

          • Annieg

            Imagine how many more EBT families would have been fed had the treasury not been robbed to fund of all those bankrupt green companies, the Muslim Brotherhood…golf trips…concerts…Belgium Gardens, Robotic Squirrels, etc. I bet you were you were as gung ho for that as “your” President? How much more would the treasury have if “your” President paid his full 39% tax share rather than 18%? How much more would charities which help feed, house and cloth the poor have had if VP Biden contributed more than a paltry $7k of his +$330k salary? They didn’t build this kind of wealth…why are they being so self serving? Why isn’t “your” President doing more to lift the bla ck community out of poverty so that there is less need for these kinds of tax payer funded programs?

            “Innocent. Doesn’t only apply to Americans.” You’re correct. However the Constitutional ‘life, liberty and property..’ does.

            ” Don’t pay for abortions…” Our tax dollars fund PP, the primary driver of child murder.

            “unlike MY PRESIDENT were gung HO for the war..” Grammar aside; Libya, drones, enough said.

          • WWMD

            OK FOR THE LAST TIME PP HAS 2 SEPARATE DIVISONS AND ARE FUNDED SEPARATELY YOU CAN BELIEVE THAT ALL YOU WANT. BUT THE FACTS ARE FACTS.YOU CAN GET A COPY OF THE BUDGET ANYWHERE AND THE CONSTITUTIONAL LIFE LIBERTY AND PROPERTY WOULD APPLY TO BORN HUMANS NOT FETUSES AS GEORGE BUSH HAD IN HIS 2002 BILL THE BORN ALIVE BILL. IT SPECIFICALLY STATED THAT NO UNVIABLE FETUS HAD IN ANY WAY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS BESTOWED AS IT WAS NOT A CITIZEN BORN IN THIS COUNTRY.
            ok as a many many here i made a typo in my frustration at the level of ignorance here. it was of course “unlike my president, you were gung ho for the war”

            so here is the rub it is NOT and i repeat NOT just YOUR tax dollars it is mine and everyone I know that supports the great work planned parenthood does in womens health care from cancer screens to many many other great services they provide. including birth control which it seems you would be all for. It is not bestowed upon you anywhere that you get to dictate how tax dollars are spent any more than I can. I despise the waste of money on this war we have spent to murder innocents by the thousands only to enrich the mil industrial complex and its cronies there is the real sin and rip off of our national treasury what we could have for that money that was conferred to make billionaires out of slime like the head of Blackwater and many many more….like Carlyle Group. who spent much of the 90’s traveling around buying up small military contractors for not much money, which i am sure you know who was in that group… then poof along comes a relative to be president and dont you know? a war comes along and those companies made half a trillion dollars profit! and you folks worry about a little welfare fraud which is so small to the storyline of welfare queens taking cruises living the high life. then to add federal crop insurance scandals hundreds of millions for rich white corporate farmers who collect millions when their crops “fail” or “dont meet projections” something that was for the dust bowl era families. crop insurance or when blacks get it its called welfare. and the takers.
            your only point i agree with is the drones which i find disgusting and were first used in 2003 GWB

            so unless you come up with a tax form check list to remove your tax dollars you object to and i can do the same you have no right to dictate health policy. Abortions are 3.5% of all visits to PP and that is fact the rest are needed services that have been striped away in many cases. from ignorance

But this man was a murdering nut case not an abortion doctor and to suggest this is a regular occurrence is ridiculous. when i was born I was stuck in the birth canal and the doctor came out and asked my father who did he want to save… fortunately didnt have to make that decision but what do you do in that case? let mother die for the sake of baby? that happens far far more than what you are alluding to. I know many many soldiers who were in that war as I am in a big military town so I got first hand accounts Id be washing the red of my hands if I were you.

    is it true that gosnell trial wasnt covered on the five either? how about fox news? i havent watched tv in quite sometime and as such get most of my news from twitter, so ive been reading about gosnell for quite some time. if its true that it wasnt convered on fox news either then shame on you fox! you’re just as bad as abc/nbc/cbs/cnn and should be called out accordingly. no body should be getting a pass on this story’s SHAMEFUL coverage.

      I saw Fox run a story at the beginning of Gosnell’s trial last month, which is more than I can say for the rest of them.

        Far be it for me to defend FOX News, as they have drifted too far left for my taste, however, I believe that “The 5” is a program that discusses the items that are being discussed in other media and that are “in the news”….Since the “Gosnell” trial was NOT even publicized at all, how can they be held accountable?? When did YOU become aware of Kermit Gosnell, Brad?? Hmmm?? BTW, I am still awaiting your hero, Barack Obama, to issue a statement about this. “For the children”, of course. If it “saves just one life” and all that horse hockey. Why is it that you moon bats NEVER hold this man accountable for anything, Brad?? Has he got you THAT infatuated with him?? I mean, your country is in collapse, largely as a result of this man’s malfeasance, and you and your ilk are defending him. What kind of stupid ARE y’all, anyway???

    Liberalism has always been so macabre in the first place. And notice all these blood curdling horrors happened right under their (the Left) noses and not a single one of them so much as batted an eye or made a peep, tweet or sound. And one could only dream their seeming disinterest was borne out of indifference …. no, that sad scenario would be comforting in stark contrast to the chilling reality at hand.

    The Left is burying this epic story because they all “collectively” have the blood of infants all over their hands. And how many liberals think it’s a crime to punch or kick a pregnant woman in the stomach or that it makes sense to charge someone with two murders if they kill a pregnant woman? All of them, most of them? Most likely and never mind that contradicts every last one of their abortion talking points.

    In the eyes of a communist, a fetus is not a child but a 26 year old adult is. And it’s not just that these people are extremely fascist minded and dangerous … they’re actually in control of our country and have been for some six devastating years. The lunatics are running the asylum.

            The definition before the classical conservatives (Democratics) hijacked the term in the 1930s because conservative became a negative term under them. Meanings change over time, but the dictionaries under the control of the Regressives maintain the definitions that make them feel better about their lies to themselves.

          • WWMD

            just like has been done with the bible under control of people like you. Changed so many times it is not anything like the intention of Jesus. Conservative didnt become so negative until it had religious fanatics hijack it trying to ingrain their version of morality into laws that never would affect them just make them feel better

      Nobody is “pro abortion” and you say it like its cheered on. It’s a gut wrenching choice nobody wants to make. It’s pro not having women die in back alley abortions. Where was the”liberal media” when another butcher (this one with initials GWB ) stormed Iraq killing HUNDREDS UPON THOUSANDS of INNOCENT FAMILIES AND CHILDREN that I would bet my last dollar you cheered on with glee. I bet you were in front of your tv during “shock and awe” just almost bursting with pride. Yet the fireworks display didn’t show those little kids being ripped apart and they were already born and some of the mothers got to see it right in front of their eyes ,! The media were not allowed to show any of that dirty part. So much for liberal I bet you think Christians are being “persecuted” too

      • Joe W.

        BOOOOOOOSH!!! Loser. Give it up already. Your dems were as implicit in BOTH wars as was President Bush. Abortion is murder, straight up. “Gut wrenching”?? 3500 a day and you all are blind to the carnage that your love of this infanticide is creating. Rot in hell, butcher.

        • WWMD

          But yet once they are born you want them to starve. Hopefully the morning after pill will cut down on abortions. When is the last time you actually fed the hungry? Dropping money in the basket doesn’t count

            B.S., Sonny.. Feed your own damned kids or don’t have any. My church feeds poor people EVERY WEEK, and I tithe 10% of my $1320 per month income. That is all I get for Social Security after paying into it for my 45 years of employment. So don’t lecture or patronize me about “feeding the hungry” or any other lib B.S.

            You have no concept of what makes a Christian and what does not. Perhaps if you read the Bible and went to Church on Sunday instead of lying around on your lazy azz watching football you would not make such an ignorant statement. But you atheists are too morally bankrupt and degenerate to do either. I almost feel sorry for you, pal. Almost. I’ll pray for you, anyway, though. It’s what we Christians do.

          what do you see here? you through out facts that are way off, the last time we had 1.2 million abortions was in 1996 it is steadily declining. good abortion should be safe legal and rare and its heading in that direction. now with morning after pill (save your typing rants about the abortion pill because its NOT) it will decline even further if women have access to it if you morons dont stop trying to close womens health clinics also the education among youth on birthconrtol is at all time high and that is reflected in the lower numbers of abortions. #2tired2arguewiththeignorant

    Just because The Five talked about it for the first time today doesn’t mean Fox News Channel has completely ignored this subject like other stations. A 30 second search found Special Report’s Molly Hennenberg did a story about it 3/28 and O’Rielly talked about him on 3/25.

      The Five is for lighter affairs and media critique. This monster slaughtering screaming babies is not exactly “light”. But the gratuitous media blackout on the story sure does qualify as “media critique”. Meanwhile, all of Fox’s investigative shows have covered Gosnell extensively.

      Butt-hoehlert knows this of course, but since he’s a scheming weasel boy, he can’t help himself.

      Other programs on Fox have covered it repeatedly for at least 2 weeks that I know of. You are junping all over the wrong channel, NONE in the MSM have covered it at all!!

            ill explain it to you Billy, if we go off the given higher figures stated by many of welfare fraud that figure being 500 million below was one case of federal crop insurance for the corporate farmers (you know like monsanto?) and the fraud they were involved in the sting it was 100 million for ONE CASE it was a quick summation most would get and this is a twitter thing so brief is imperative

            and your previous posts sense was not at top of my list whats an obama phone?

            A little research would have told you the Federal Crop Insurance bill was signed into law in 1938 by DEMOCRAT, Franklin D. Roosevelt, so if you want to blame someone, blame the “do-gooder” Roosevelt. Besides, the farmers who defrauded were probably democraps.

    • JR48

      Unless she’s referring to the legal restrictions placed on third trimester abortions in some states?

      I’d say to her that indeed it’s not easy to get a third trimester abortion because not many healthcare professionals are interested in killing a healthy, viable fetus that could live on it’s own if it were merely cared for.

And those black panthers at the voting booths….did anyone finish the story of them going to the parking lot and being paid by a republican operative and caught on film? or the fine leveled at the “documentary expose” on ACORN now proven to be fraud? yeah a gun not a automatic assault rifle 20 of them. a cockable shotgun or quality had gun would do the trick…but yeah in the frenzy of a serial shooter and everyone panicking, like the aurora shootings in the theater, in the dark yeah that would have gone well.. like at the empire state building when a shooter started and the cops well trained with weapons shot innocent people in the mayhem and certainly I hope your dumb pun on Biden ARE smart was intended. as incorrect as it is

        • JR48

          Alaska, Colorado, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Vermont, and West Virginia are nine states that allow it. 41 don’t. And the other laws are ‘health of the mother’ not ‘life of the mother’. A few ban it completely after ‘viablity’.

          And the women who went to Gosnell or who go here http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/tiller-ignoring-threats-doctors-trimester-abortions/story?id=18233523#.UWnFDrUsng8 aren’t dying.

Tool…http://3801lancaster.com/ …I tried to feel sympathy for the woman who had 8 abortions over time who has now found a man to spend her life with and can’t bear a child now…There is none…why do you suppose with all of the free government programs/services that she thought abortion was her only alternative? Or are you too hypocritical to do anything but keep whining about The Five not discussing the story until recently? I for one don’t care…that isn’t the story…Oh ya…the part about the Health Department not investigating the complaints they received over the last 10 years or so on this guy…I’d like to see those in charge on trial right along side this guy for aiding and abetting his crimes, …how about you? I’ll tell you what…..you head on over to MSNBC, CNN, etc. and start complaining about them not reporting on this aspect and I will do the same with FOX…deal?

          • WWMD

            If she had access to planned parenthood maybe she would have gotten birth control. The lowest unwanted pregnancy rates in the world are in Netherlands where they teach about sex and birth control in school when kids are hitting puberty and can have babies but people want to pretend that doesn’t happen. Also they readily provide the birth control to those who ask for it. And if they get caught in a spot they are given the Morning after pill. And it’s NOT THE ABORTION PILL. It is a hormone women naturally have that the egg does not implant like naturally happens all the time

          • Annieg

            Obviously you did not watch the documentary or you would understand that she was “educated” to believe that abortion was an acceptable form of “controlling birth.” The difference is in the meaning of “birth” control and “pregnancy” control. Despite your attempt as trying to paint me into a corner on the subject of the morning after pill with your emphasis on “NOT THE ABORTION PILL” because you have been educated to believe that everything is black and white with no shades of grey…I see the morning after pill as a just another reason we should ban abortion except in cases of severe birth defects, rape and incest or in the event that a woman has used the most effective forms of pregnancy prevention and it did not work. When you take that pill you don’t know if the natural order of events leading to pregnancy has taken place…another option for pregnancy control as opposed to birth control. Of course I completely disagree with giving it at any age w/o parental consent. More education on what happens when you choose to have sex and the options available to prevent pregnancy is what’s needed…not educating people to believe that if they have sex and create a life as a result it is their right to kill it if they don’t want it…that decision should have been made prior to the action that got them that way…

          talks about the stuff the other stations are talking about. Therefore,
          anybody with any sense knows that they will talk about it when they hear
          the others talking about it. Therefore, as the So-Called Unbiased
          Media (SCUM) have been refusing to talk about it, The Five had not yet
          picked it up from the SCUM. Bless your heart.

          till you stop screaming about people being “takers” and cutting off funding for food programs because you believe the internet fantasy of everyone on food assistance is stealing welfare fraud is down from 11% to 3% due to measures in place preventing fraud. Texas implemented a fraud program that works well.. guess how many people are in jail for it? 7 wow I bet that will end the deficit now. not one of the things I hear you people most complain about would do one thing to reduce the deficit.

    How does this make any sense at all? Isn’t abortion “legal and safe” where this guy Gosnell “practiced medicine”?

    Greg has mentioned several times that if Fox news covers something, the msm won’t. That extends to folks like Michelle Malkin, Breitbart or any other conservative news outlets they denigrate. So in a way, yes, it is your fault Greg (and all you REAL journalists with the guts to cover this story from the start) Had you ingored it, surely the vapid hacks at bsnbc, cnn, abc, etc., etc., etc. would have run with it!!! Yeah right.
    Congrats to all those that took part in shaming them into covering this horror.

  • lana ward

    Fox News Channel has been covering this for awhile and wondered why none of the other outlets have been covering it. The Dems are SOOOO good at blaming others for everything that would get them in trouble–I don’t think it will work this time!!! Killing babies and animals is the worse thing anyone can do. This Satan Gosnell should be cut to pieces and then hung. Sick, morbid SOB!!!

    • Brad

      How many times has The Five covered this story?

      • lana ward

        You tell me, and does it matter. They are considered a show like the view, only decent. Reporters on Fox have been reporting it for at least a couple weeks. The MSM has completely ignored it as they do with MANY things news worthy. If it doesn’t fit their agenda, they don’t report it. Many of you Obamabots would have a different opinion of him if you would watch Fox and get real reporting

    Brit Hume tweeted about it multiple times.

  • MSM

    They monitor the trends. Most of my friends on facebook are liberal and under thirty. I knew when George Takei posted that equal sign in red that it would be big. My friends started changing their facebook pics that very hour and it was over everywhere. The next day equality was all over the news.

    Then last night I noticed some of my young friends had started mentioning Gosnell. It had broken through to the young and even my liberal female friends, while emphasizing they were for abortion, admitted this was horrific and wrong for the media not to have reported.

    Now this morning the media is all over the story. They’re very in tune with that youngish crowd. I can usually guess when a story is about to break through based on how alive my facebook friends are posting.

    Fiscal cliff… sequester? They weren’t even paying attention.

    Gun control yeah some were for it, but they got bored and had other things to pay attention to.

    Gay marriage… HUGE. Their eyes were all but glistening with tears.

    North Korea… please. Not. happening.

    Gosnel… what’s tha… oh god…

    Or *ignore*

  • lisalake

    It is true. Fox is guilty of ignoring the story. Even O’Rielly hasn’t touched it.. the so-called champion of children… remember all his crying when he was accused of getting “tiller the baby killer” offed??

    • http://twitter.com/sec818 Sharon Chambers

      Yes he did – last week of March.

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      Hume has been talking about it forever. He’s probably one of the big reasons the story didn’t die.

      • lisalake

        Brit Hume? Hardly prime time.. a guest comment here and there and then it’s gone. But remember how FOX covered the damn balloon boy? Wall to coverage for that… and live coverage for Jodi what’s her name??? Please…

        • shimauma

          Wait wait, you’re saying Brit Hume isn’t prime time, but you’re b*tching because a LATE NIGHT ENTERTAINMENT TALK SHOW on Fox News didn’t mention it, same as ALL of CNN, ABC, MSNBC, CBS never bothered to mention the baby murderer. What a twisted noodle-ish mind you libturds have.

          • lisalake

            Just pointing out what everyone who has eyes and ears sees…FOX’s capitulation to the left has been going on for some time now. Because some of you refuse to recognize it, or admit it, is to your detriment. And as far as my being a lib?? LMAO! Couldn’t be farther from reality..

          • Patrick Dennehy

            I don’t think Fox is the end all be all nor do I agree with them in lockstep; but they are better than the rest. That in no way means they are beyond reproach. I post here a lot and ‘we’ (in the comments section) will call Fox out, if they are wrong

            OReilly did cover the story in March, that’s where I first heard it. I agree with you, though, Fox has not covered it as much as other ‘lesser’ stories

      No, it’s not true. And yes O’Reilly did cover it. Tell me, is this the ‘Repeat a lie enough times and it becomes truth’ effort? You obviously don’t watch FOX and take the word of those vapid hacks at cnn or bsnbc as “truth”. I watch FOX and they have covered this story a number of times.

      • lisalake

        I watch too. Sorry, but barely a mention here and there. This is a story that should be FRONT & CENTER. Arguments are only that FOX is “slightly” better than the rest for their measly coverage? Not good enough.

    • jb

      So, given the chance to lead — to show their humaneness and their caring and their disgust w/ partial birth abotions — ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC have all failed. I agree with you.

        • TocksNedlog

          Actually, 1) I remember watching the segment when it first aired; 2) I mentioned the search to point out that you too could have done a search before making your declaration; 3) I noted the date to make the point that O’Reilly was on top of the story from the start of the trial; 4) I AGREE that there should be more coverage of this story from ALL major news outlets; 5) None of this changes the fact that the left is just trying to deflect and distract from their own failure to report this story.

    The have to go after The Five, because they can’t go after Fox.

  • Annieg

    Fox has been as disgustingly silent on this as the MSM has, it is what it is…they should have just acknowledged it in the interests of being “Fair & Balanced.” Brazile & Boehlert are ignorant anyway…their projections were expected and boring…I’m surprised they didn’t call The Five folks racist to go along with the rest of their idiotic narrative.

    • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

      Brett Baier has been reporting it since day one of the trial so I think it is unfair to say they have been silent.

      • Annieg

        Fox is the news channel on here throughout my day…I sent an email in March asking where the coverage of this trial beginning was…after listening to yet another report on Jody Arias. The trial began March 18th just in case you didn’t know… Either way until the last few days no reporting they have done since the trial began is comparable to the incessant reporting on Jody Arias so I think it is unfair to not report on the Gosnell trial in a “fair & balanced” way. Megyn Kelly at least stated she did not want to report on it and was upfront and apologetic as to her reasons why.

        • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

          Yeah, I agree the coverage hasn’t been enough just saying it was there on Fox albeit small.

    • lana ward

      Fox has been reporting on this for at least 2 weeks that I know of. MSM wouldn’t report it because it is bad for their core belief, murdering babies

      • Annieg

        The trial began March 18th…It got a mention a few times, not any real reporting…reporting that inspections were not done by the health department for political reasons, even less. I’m a FOX fan, doesn’t mean I can’t call it like I see it…They all dropped the ball on this one…what does it matter…it’s got attention now…isn’t that more important?

        • lana ward

          Wonder how many more monsters are doing this?? The day the Supreme Court said it was legal to murder babies, really was the day America started dying–and of course it’s all Bushes fault!!

          • Annieg

            I hate to think about it…this case and the other one in NJ are enough right now…I just hope that more of these women who allowed themselves to be sold on the lie in a moment of desperation come out and speak of their experiences. It also doesn’t hurt to hope that more women will hear this story and take precaution against getting pregnant until they are ready to bear the responsibility…

  • WWMD

    This grand jury report was from 2011. Why are you people just now talking about it? This had nothing to do with abortion and everything to do with a deranged individual no different than Jeffrey Dahmer. And. This is what you get when you force the closure of planned parenthood s in areas like this.

    • Laura

      No. This is what happens when left-leaning pro abortion groups push for less regulation of legal abortion clinics like Gosnell’s. He was in the Yellow Pages – hardly an underground operation. Do you have the names/dates of the Planned Parenthoods in that area that were “forced” into closing? There could have been a Planned Parenthood on every corner and these women would have gone to Gosnell because he would perform very late term abortion, incl. killing babies born alive. He charged poor minority women a lot of money for this “service”. The reason you think “we” haven’t been talking about it is because “you” haven’t been paying attention. It is just now going to trial so it is top news, but it has been mentioned in what I read and watch. I’ve known about this since the beginning. Where have you been with all you moral outrage? BTW, this case has EVERYTHING to do with abortion – an inconvenient truth for the pro abortion side, so I understand your need to isolate this case as a one-off “deranged” individual. You may reserve your outrage for the pro life crowd, but I will direct mine to abortionists like Gosnell who are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of innocent babies born alive, and those poor, minority women.

    • Annieg

      Just like Sandy Hook has everything to do with guns and not a deranged individual like Kermit Gosnell right?

      • WWMD

        both. easy access to guns automatic assault rifles not necessary to defend your home. like Rick Warrens dead son who bought gun on internet. no check no nothing and because language is sometimes hard to comprehend. nowhere in the 2nd amendment does it give the right to run out and grab as many assault rifles as one can carry on a whim. you focus on one sentence there are several others prior and a comma. now, unless you are a member of a well organized militia COMMA and you are free to join one… all citizens not just the private selected army of the king militias include the police force, the national guard, the military et al not bubba in his pick up and not a clue as what being a patriot means

        • Annieg

          What deity are you to decide what weapon I or anyone else may choose to defend my home? Aren’t you just another pair of feet walking? If Rick Warrens son was deadest on taking his life, gun laws would not have stopped him. Start talking to me about a nation of citizens who respect life as a start and how that may reduce violence before you try to preach to me about how I go about defending my home in an environment that puts political expediency above life…Just accept that part of you that has no respect for life and is hopelessly grasping for a narrative. Discriminate against “bubba’s” much? Hadn’t read much in the news about “bubba’s in pick up trucks” committing murder but there were some stories I seem to recall about some cop here recently that killed a few people, what was his name…Dorner right…wasn’t there another cop that was eating people too? Oh yeah, then there is that guy in the military…you know the terrorist…oops I mean “work place violence” perpetrator…PS…did I miss the news that all criminals had turned in their assault rifles and dedicated themselves to a crime free life? Go sweep around your own back door…

        he was unlicensed and had you read the report by the grand jury in 2011 i repeat 2011 funny no one caught this case then now being blamed on everyone from the president to every newscaster that gets the label liberal media. he saw this as a way to extrude money from poor women and had Planned parenthood been there this would not have happened this way recently women in california had a guy injecting their faces with auto part gels and substances and was arrested was that cosmetic surgery? or a hijacker who takes over a plane is just another pilot. #epicfail

        • Annieg

          Planned Parenthood a little over 2 miles from Gosnell’s clinic…nice try…all of those deities you mentioned got their labels because they support what Gosnell did. The Grand Jury report says the PA Health Department did not investigate several complaints against the clinic over time because it was not politically expedient (paraphrased). Oh, had those women done a little more research before they had auto parts gel injected in their body then the guy who did it wouldn’t have a customer base would he…you do understand the concept of personal responsibility don’t you?

          • WWMD

            I love you make an major impact statement quoting from the grand jury report but yet you fail to put the actual words in Curious when did you read the grand jury report? And yes personal responsibility same thing these women should have taken if this clinic was as horrific as it was described would you choose to stay there ? Doubtful

          • Annieg

            Curious myself, why do you feel the need to divert from the facts of the report by questioning when I read it…Nah, you don’t get the meaning of personal responsibility…I don’t feel sorry for any of the women…they had a choice, they didn’t have to get pregnant in the first place.

            “There were several oversight agencies that stumbled upon and should have shut down Kermit Gosnell long ago. But none of
            them did, not even after Karnamaya Mongar’s death. In the end, Gosnell was only caught by accident, when police raided his offices to seize evidence of his illegal prescription selling. Once law enforcement agents went in, they couldn’t help noticing the disgusting conditions, the dazed patients, the discarded fetuses. That is why the complete regulatory collapse that occurred here is so inexcusable. It should have taken only one look.” Page 8

            “After 1993, even that pro forma effort came to an end. Not because of administrative ennui, although there had been plenty. Instead, the Pennsylvania Department of Health abruptly decided, for political reasons, to stop inspecting abortion clinics at all. The politics in question were not anti-abortion, but pro. With the change of administration from Governor Casey to Governor Ridge, officials concluded that inspections would be “putting a barrier up to women” seeking abortions. Better to leave clinics to do as they pleased, even though, as Gosnell proved, that meant both women and babies would pay.” Page 9

            “Bureaucratic inertia is not exactly news. We understand that. But we think this was something more. We think the reason no one acted is because the women in question were poor and of color, because the victims were infants without identities, and because the subject was the political football of abortion.” Page 13

    The lefty media has pivoted nicely on this topic – the fact is mass murdering abortion Doctor doesn’t play in to the narrative that is ‘reproductive rights’ . So only a true idiot would think its the 5 is hiding or didn’t cover the story.

    I distinctly remember Gregg saying CNN to be fair did briefly cover the story in the early days but the lame ass lefty media went very silent in its lock step fashion as the case started to unravel.

    I know, for a fact, that I saw coverage of this story on FOX, but nowhere else. On O’Reilly, Brett Baier, Britt Hume and many varied news reports since at least 2011, I have been aware of this nightmare, thanks to FOX news. To hone in on one late afternoon round table show like THE FIVE is ridiculous and the most embarrassing example of deflection and hypocrisy by the other media outlets who have given little or no coverage to this horror show. If you simply go to each outlet’s website and do a quick search on Kermit Gosnell, the results come back over 200 hits on FOX, 26 on CNN and zero on MSNBC….case closed.
