MSNBC, Networks Avoid Dr. Gosnell Story

John on January 26, 2011 at 10:08 am

Brent Bozell has the facts on the media coverage of Dr. Gosnell. It’s exactly what you’d expect:

“If it bleeds, it leads.” Remember that mantra to explain the TV networks’ fascination with gory visuals? And yet these same networks could barely touch this story, even with its jaw-dropping ratings potential. “CBS Evening News” had one story, NBC’s “Today” “offered 50 vague words and ABC couldn’t be bothered. Rachel Maddow anchored an entire hour-long special on the shooting death of abortionist George Tiller, but a Nexis search finds no one on MSNBC could even whisper the name of Kermit Gosnell. (CNN and Fox News each followed the story for a few days.)

MSNBC is not a news channel, it’s a propaganda outlet. We all know that, but it’s still good to see it confirmed so clearly. Of course the networks are little better, something that’s also not very surprising.
