Though many in the media during abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell’s 2013 trial for horrible crimes didn’t seem interested (with some even dismissing it as a local crime story), one photo from the trial has gained fresh attention, and it’s one that was taken by Pennsylvania’s Bucks County Courier Times reporter J.D. Mullane:

Mullane was one reporter who was all over the Gosnell trial. The picture continues to spark disgust:
I can't believe that this is the first time I've seen this.
The media completely ignored the Gosnell trial. This was real news and of interest to a big portion of the country.
Media bias is also what they refuse to report on. https://t.co/WeET3GMCZw

Speaking of CNN, this week Mullane told a story about the skeptical cable net’s reaction to that photo. But CNN stepped right into a big pile of rotten apples & bananas:
Fun fact: After this pic of empty media seats at the Gosnell abortion/murder trail in Philly went viral, CNN called me and said the network was going to report it was a fake pic. I asked: ''Did your reporter at the trial tell you that?'' https://t.co/MdGqAHw53f

Well CNN walked right into that one!
CNN is very far off the rails… https://t.co/Cg6nD7nsuy

The story of Kermit Gosnell’s “house of horrors” is back in the news thanks to a forthcoming film from Nick Searcy, “Gosnell: The trial of America’s biggest serial killer.”
