72 Congressmen slam media for failing to cover Gosnell, Planned Parenthood infanticide remarks

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 18, 2013 ( – In a sternly worded letter, 72 congressman have accused the three leading mainstream media networks – ABC, NBC, and CBS – of “blatant media bias” for failing to cover two of the biggest abortion-related stories in recent years: the trial of “House of Horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell, and remarks made by a Planned Parenthood representative in support of infanticide.

“The broadcasters’ blackout of the Planned Parenthood infanticide lobbying scandal and the Gosnell ‘House of Horrors’ murder trial are the biggest and most politically-motivated media cover-ups in our nation’s history,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who led the group of 72 legislators.

The trial of Kermit Gosnell, who stands accused of murdering seven newborn infants by snipping their spinal cords, has been ongoing since the middle of last month. Testimony has featured former staff and victims presenting gruesome details about conditions inside Gosnell's "House of Horrors" clinic.

Until Friday, however, when pro-life activists took to Twitter en masse and sent hundreds of thousands of Gosnell-related tweets, most major media outlets had completely ignored the trial. Even following Friday's "Tweetfest," media coverage remains spotty.
The media similarly ignored shocking remarks made by Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow at the end of March, when she testified against a bill in Florida that would require abortion providers to provide care to babies born alive after failed abortions.
