New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan gave the publication a Twitter-pat on the back for its coverage of Kermit Gosnell’s mass murder trial. Media blackout? Pfft!
Sullivan called the paper of record’s coverage “not insubstantial.” Can we get a fact check from Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers?
Sullivan admits the Times published one piece on the trial. One. But come on, you guys, the paper already covered this stuff before the trial began.
And more coverage is on the way … she thinks.
Powers wonders if possibly sending a Times reporter to Philadelphia to cover the trial would make Sullivan’s tweets more believable.
Hush now, says Sullivan. We’ve got this. She counts a whopping five stories about the allegations that Gosnell murdered infants by snipping their spines.
Indeed, there may be more to come. Bucks County Courier Times columnist J.D. Mullane spotted a New York Times reporter at the Gosnell trial on Thursday.
We look forward to his “report.”
