@LukeRussert Can you tweet a link to NBC's coverage of this important story?

No, he can’t.
Twitchy has extensively documented the media silence on the trial of baby murderer Kermit Gosnell. This morning, NBC News’ Russert found out just how deafening that silence is. He wanted to let his followers know about the “horrifying” testimony being given at the Gosnell trial. Good on him for that. Unfortunately, NBC couldn’t help him out. Russert had to link instead to the Philadelphia Inquirer — a local outlet:

What does it say about your own network’s news reputation when you can’t even look to it for coverage?
@LukeRussert a little late to the party don't you think

@LukeRussert If only you had some connections in the news business, so more people could find out about it.

@LukeRussert so why isn't your network, NBC, reporting on the horror?

Are the lives of the unborn and newly born worth nothing?
.@LukeRussert Kill 20 children with a gun, make national news. Cut the spines of 30 with scissors, and generally the media is silent.

Countless innocent children have been slaughtered by Gosnell. The media should be spreading this story far and wide.
@LukeRussert Better late than never. Is Twitter as far as NBC/MSNBC is going to go?

Now’s your chance to prove your worth as a journalist, Luke. Will you?
