For those of you waiting for a prominent media outlet to speak up about the mind-numbingly ridiculous prosecution — and persecution — of the activists whose undercover videos exposed Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue trafficking, here’s Rolling Stone with a scorching-hot take:

You think the headline is awful? Wait until you get to the actual piece, which, incidentally, was written by proud National Abortion Federation member David S. Cohen:

Remember back in the summer of 2015, when videos accusing Planned Parenthood of selling fetal tissue were being released online seemingly every week? Those videos seeped into the national consciousness and have colored the ongoing debate about federal funding for the organization. They impacted the national discussion even though we quickly learned that they were a complete lie, as they were deceptively edited to make it appear that Planned Parenthood was violating the law when in reality it was not.

As the saying goes, the wheels of justice grind slowly. But over the past 24 hours – more than 20 months after the videos were first released – justice has been meted out to the people behind the videos not once, but twice. On Tuesday night, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, two of the people behind the video operation, were indicted on 15 counts of illegal recording and conspiracy in violation of California law. And Wednesday afternoon, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Daleiden could not release any more videos he illegally obtained at private professional meetings.

As evidenced over the past 24 hours, while Planned Parenthood continues to fight for its continued existence and good name, Daleiden and Merritt may finally be brought to justice for their malicious attacks on the organization.

You can almost picture Cohen jumping for joy at the prospect of Daleiden and Merritt being convicted as criminals.

If Rolling Stone wants to be taken seriously as a legitimate journalistic enterprise, maybe they could start by showing some genuine concern over what’s happening to Daleiden and Merritt for practicing journalism.

Or maybe Rolling Stone’s as big a joke as ever.

Hey, here’s a question:
