The trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began more than a month ago. Gosnell faces 43 criminal counts, including eight counts of murder in the death of one patient, Karnamaya Monger, and seven newborn infants. Additional charges include conspiracy, drug delivery resulting in death, infanticide, corruption of minors, evidence tampering, theft by deception, abuse of corpse and corruption.

This trial can be considered sensational and worthy of media attention. But, to this date, scant, if any, attention has been given to it. Major news networks like NBC and popular websites like Huffington Post haven’t covered the trial. Pictures of empty courtroom benches reserved for the press have been posted on the Internet. Even newspapers such as The Anniston Star have not deemed this trial important enough to mention. A search for “Kermit Gosnell trial” on the Anniston Star website revealed nothing.

It is shameful that the mainstream media, The Star included, have chosen to protect the liberal left’s pro-abortion policies by ignoring a story that puts abortion in a bad light. “Attorney for the most defenseless”? What is more defenseless than a newborn baby?

Shame on you, Anniston Star. Shame on all the major news media.
