You want the media to do all this or the police department?

The more access to safe abortion is restricted, the more women, especially poor women, are pushed into the hands of people like Gosnell.
Yup.

There is a thing called investigative journalism.

There is, and I'll trust them with the case of food poisoning at the local sushi restaurant. There are professionals properly trained to deal with cases where people's lives are at stake

It seems the lack of interest in this applies here just as it does to
the media.

The jury is now deliberating a verdict.

Honestly, what kind of discussion would you like? Rarely is there much discussion on something nobody will disagree with. We all think it's horrible

I think the problem is that conservatives are frothing at the mouth because they think this is about abortion, and they think they have found the example that will give absolution to their cause. And then on top of that, they love to play victim, so this is a win win for them.

Problem is: this is not about abortion, and you all are not victims.

Holy fucking shit you are an asshole. THIS WAS A NATIONAL NEWS STORY ABOUT MY CITY TWO YEARS AGO. If you want it to happen now it's your fault for waiting until now.

A story two years ago?

Well the discovery at trial is happening now. Will the same standard of journalism, for example, be applied to the Trayvon Martin case when it goes before a jury two years after the fact? Of course not.

I actually posted something back when the story broke and I don't remember much reaction from anybody.

Everyone knows why the media had to be shamed into coverage just as everyone knows that if this monster had used a gun instead of chemicals and scissors to kill all these children this trial would have been front page news from day one. And Obama would be flying around campaigning for this law and that law... "If we can save just one child... we have to do this."

Instead of lashing out at Ironhorse for pointing out the obvious bias in journalism why don't you, as a graduate, go out and improve what has become a sad, pathetic profession. Please!! The country sorely need an honest press that will strive to search for the truth.

So 'the press' all got together and decided not to cover this. Some great big secret meeting between CNN, Fox News, MSNBC...

What truth should they be striving for in this case? Or was that just a phrase that you drooled out your mouth because it sounded good?
