Why do you think abortion doc Gosnell is the most searched term on Politico, yet it yields zero matches?

The media will tell you they are all about news, sensationalism, "if it bleeds it leads," ratings, money, fulfilling demand, and clicks -- but that is all a lie.

Over at Politico, the number-one "most searched" term is "kermit gosnell," the abortion doctor currently on trial in Philadelphia for the murder of seven babies.

That search yields zero matches.

The doctor's last name, "gosnell," is Politico's third most searched term and also yields zero matches having to do with Kermit Gosnell.

Judging by the number of search inquiries, there is a demand for this story Politico is willfully choosing not to fill -- and doing so for obvious political reasons. And it is not because Politico shies away from abortion issues.

A search for "Susan Komen," yields 166 matches, but that is because Politico was part of the media lynch-mob that browbeat the private breast cancer charity into continuing their funding of Planned Parenthood.

A search for "Todd Akin" results in 865 matches, because Politico was part of the media lynch-mob that used a stupid abortion/rape comment made by a nobody Senate candidate to aid and abet Democrats during the 2012 elections.

The news blackout of this horrific abortion trial isn't just occurring at Politico. This is a full-blown, coordinated blackout throughout the entire national media.

ADDED: There is a second abortion clinic horror story in Delaware the media are also ignoring.

Yes Mr Scum, I'm sure sniping the spines of screaming babies is no big thing to a liberal such as yourself.......

    Oh, they're starting to pick it up now, since people found out they were ignoring it.

    And starting to spin it. Listen to this from the Huffington Post:

    "Abortion rights opponents are drawing the wrong lesson from the horrific case of Kermit Gosnell, Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, said Friday....

    This is exactly what happens when you place undue restrictions and you try to shame women to keep them from exercising their constitutional right to safe and legal abortions,"

    Yeah. Except that keeping women from excercising their right to have an abortion had NOTHING to do with the butchery and barbarism that went on in his legal abortion clinic.

    I think this is the stark underlying truth here:

    American media outlets are private and for-profit. They don't exist to tell us what we need to hear. They don't exist to improve society. They don't exist to "push an agenda." They exist to make money.

    Yes, sometimes you can make money by pushing an agenda. If their viewers will watch while they bash a politician, they'll air that. If their viewers will change the channel if they run a story about a particular murder trial, they won't air that. If their viewers want to watch "news" about a woman who says her job didn't like her breast implants, you bet your *ss they'll air that.

    And that's the bottom line. This is what the First Amendment and a free media gets us. MSNBC won't run the story because their viewers would change the channel. And then fewer people would watch all the Geico commercials. And that means less money.

    The ignorance of this case is appalling.

    Pro-Choice people - where is your outrage? Unless and until you stand up and demand that this man is punished, your silence means you agree with his practices.

    You think slicing the spinal cords of born children and calling them "abortions" is what you want representing your view of "choice"? It's murder. Plain and simple.
