The mainstream media have been relatively silent in reporting on abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell who was really involved in Nazi-style executions of live babies:
“In Gosnell’s clinic police found severed baby feet of various sizes kept in see-through containers and bodies of babies in a freezer and in the basement. The upper spinal cords of some of the babies had been severed.”
Sarah Kliff, a health policy reporter for the Washington Post, described the Gosnell death clinic as a local story: “I cover policy for the Washington Post, not local crime. . . .” The killing of just born babies seems to be a significant health story that has national implications. Our other abortuaries involved in similar practices?
Almost all news stories start locally. The Newtown shooting was a local story. So were the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman and Trayvon Martin.
Then there was the very local story of Michael Vick and dog cruelty. His story made front-page news across the country. USA Today carried an editorial that read, “Window on a cruel world.” The editorial reported that “Vick and two associates allegedly ‘executed approximately eight dogs . . . by various methods, including hanging, drowning, and slamming at least one dog’s body to the ground.’”
