While not specifically commenting on abortion, It's interesting the difference in coverage you get depending on where the MSM sides on an issue.

Can You Imagine the Coverage If It Were Dogs?
By: Erick Erickson (Diary) | April 12th, 2013 at 04:30 AM

Last night on twitter, Dave Weigel of Slate noted he was just hearing from twitterers about the gruesome trial of Kermit Gosnell. Those who care about the story owe a tremendous debt to Kirsten Powers taking to the pages of USA Today to write about it.

It is fascinating how much of a bubble the media lives in with that bubble so DC-NYC centric. It is again one of the problems for news organizations like CNN as it tries to rebuild. With the exception of Fox News, the American news networks focus on the things people along the coast are interested in and not what people along the American river valleys are talking about.

In churches, local restaurants, and small town hair salons a lot of people across the country are talking about the terrible trial of Kermit Gosnell in Pennsylvania. It’s just not the people who interact with those who produce the news in New York City.

In fairness to CNN, unlike many other mainstream media outlets, it covered the Gosnell arrest back in 2011, but moved on. Only Fox, which is the number one news network largely because it actually cares what people outside the DC-NYC bubble care about, has stayed with the story.

Gosnell is now on trial two years after his arrest. The stories coming from the trial via the few outlets willing to pay attention are horrific and gruesome. But what’s more, similar stories are trickling out from other abortion clinics. The uncommon barbarism of Kermit Gosnell’s clinic turns out to be more common than most might imagine.

Reporters are 99.99% ideological hacks. Liberal Ideological Hacks. If there is a thought in their heads independent from the group liberal think they quietly smother it in it's sleep for it's own good.

Looks like that individual thought is getting an easier death than those fetuses at Gosnell's clinic.

It's why they put concentration camps in the woods and why every German within 20 miles all said "We didn't know what was happening". Lot easier to avoid the moral hazard that way. On this story the media is doing the equivalent of putting their hands on their ears and saying "LA LA LA, I can't hear you".

I was on another board today and mentioned that I was for the legalization of pot, and was promptly accused of being a liberal with a live and let die attitude, [whatever that means] they then compared pot to abortion, saying that pot and abortion are both quick killers. Abortion is murder, especially as in the case of doc gosnell. Pot I believe has never killed anyone.

Well Pot can kill you, especially if you get hit over the head with one.

I live in your head.

Oh, and tidy the place up a bit. Maybe some new paint.

The Red State is curiously naive.

The reason for the media silence on this horrific trial - I'm getting the goods on it from British newspapers - isn't that they aren't aware of it since they live in NYC. The reason is that they don't want to bloody cover it because it undermines a key liberal faith tenet, and so the proles must not know.

By the way - this goes to prove that one of the more common arguments of liberals when discussing media bias, namely that media only follows sensationalism and the quick titillating outrage in its reports in order to maximize income - is so much bunk. In this trial we have everything. Outright mass murder (no matter what you think of abortion, pretty much everyone but feminists think killing children who have already been born is such), corruption, medial malpractice on a epic scale, leaving hundreds of victims, reports routinely ignored by the medical oversight bodies for decades, lurid details of how janitors were employed to snip spinal cords when they couldn't find a nurse, the doc's collection of hundreds of aborted baby feet in jars... frankly, this would be a glorious story for any media outlet looking for viewers and ad impressions.

But that's not what MSM is about. MSM is about pushing dems and explaining how much women and minorities suffer from capitalism and white male rule.

In addition you have sub story of Gosnell treating white women differently from black women. He assumed that white women were more likely to turn him in than black women were. You're correct in pointing out that a sensational story is only sensational if it doesn't harm the liberal agenda.
