Hey, look, here’s another reporter who never watched “Gosnell” writing about “Gosnell.”

First things first: abortion is graphic and bloody. You would have to go out of your way to make a movie about abortion and not have it filled with blood and gore — but that’s what the makers of the PG-13 film “Gosnell” did. The film isn’t the horror movie it could have been — it’s a crime drama focusing on the arrest and trial of Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of the murder of three infants who were born alive during abortion procedures that he botched. (He was also convicted of manslaughter after a woman died while undergoing an abortion in his filthy clinic.)

As Twitchy reported, both Vanity Fair and Slate have called it “bloody” and “graphic” in news stories about the film being screened at the White House. Now Politico is throwing in its two cents, and they too are calling it “graphic.”

“Trump White House to screen graphic anti-abortion movie Friday” … oh, and don’t forget to add that it’s “controversial.”

The film is centered in a courtroom — and this is what the real-life courtroom looked like. Those pieces of paper show the seats reserved for the press:

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway zinged Politico for its sudden concern over the Gosnell trial:

That’s right — it was a local crime story of no possible interest to anyone outside Philadelphia. Why would it be? Just because this sick freak kept baby feet in jars and stashed the bodies of 47 babies in a freezer — at least the ones he didn’t grind in a garbage disposal or flush down a toilet until it clogged? Hemingway was paying attention as it happened.

Hey, it’s that tweet’s sixth anniversary today! She brought the heat then and she’s bringing it now — now that left-leaning outlets are suddenly concerned that such a graphic movie is going to be screened at the White House. Now it’s news — six years later.

Update:

And here, once again, is international film and television star Nick Searcy (who also directed “Gosnell”).
