    Over six weeks of weekday and weekend coverage, GMA featured the Arias case 22 times. Arias is accused of stabbing and slitting the throat of Travis Alexander, her ex-boyfriend. Clearly, the producers and hosts of the morning show aren’t worried about discussing stomach-churning details. The Associated Press recounted the graphic accusations against Gosnell, including testimony by some of the abortion clinic’s workers that they "'snipped' babies' necks after they were born alive to make sure they died."
    Hmm. Have you seen Kermit? Or any of his clients? Wonder why. You have heard the adage "sex sells" before, haven't you?

    Yes it is pretty sad that young white women who murder people get more coverage than a man who kills poor black babies. I sure am glad that some feel the need to call the media out on it, even though you seem to have no problem with it.

    And you've never seemed to have a problem with it until it involved abortion. Your newfound passion for minorities is great, however! I'm very proud of you!

    Yes, it is sad. It is totally sad that black kids die in gun fire every day but when it happens to white kids it is an outrage. It is sad that domestic violence happens to minorities all the time, but when OJ goes and kills a white woman OH LORD the coverage. It is sad that when Texas sucks at graduating people you immediately blame immigrants. Lots of things are sad. Don't blame me for being realistic about the world, blame the world. .

    It seems you have no problem mixing true and false information together. For one I don't believe Texas has a problem graduating students as the article I posted from the Dept of Education says otherwise, and then I didn't blame anyone I said that in addition to the fact that we have a large number of immigrants we STILL manage to do great. But go ahead and go by your census data that was a completely different statistic because that is what you want to believe.

    Regardless of any of that unrelated stuff I'm really shocked that you are just realizing that minorities get unequal air time In the media. It floors me.

    Who said I just realized it? At least I'm not trying to justify it and say that we shouldn't complain because that's just the way it is. Aren't you the one saying there is no media bias?

    Do you think that complaining about it on a debate board changes the world? I've never said that you shouldn't complain- simply said that I believe your complaints are totally misguided. This case hasn't gotten national attention due to media bias because of abortion- but because, as I stated in my very first post - none of the "hooks" that would get it national coverage are here. It's very simple. You don't seem to have a debate point to counter that argument, do you?

    I think that complaining about does change things. Complaining about it on a debate board clearly didn't change your mind since you don't believe it exists, but there are other people who post and read this board besides you that might have become aware of it because of this discussion. When the allegations were made of bias the story started to get coverage. And some reporters have even admitted the bias exists.

    The media’s modus operandi is completely political. Long ago, the press picked its side in the abortion debate.

    They bought into the abortion industry’s “safe, rare, and legal” propaganda. So they ignored stories about unsafe abortion clinics, botched procedures, and subsequent fatalities. These topics were a protected from discussion in the press.

    Since Powers spotlighted the case a few honest journalists have admitted that their political bias resulted in their failure to acknowledge the Gosnell trial. The Washington Post’s Melinda Henneberger wrote, “I say we didn’t write more because the only abortion story most outlets ever cover in the news pages is every single threat or perceived threat to abortion rights.”

    On air, HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill admitted, “For what it’s worth, I do think that those of us on the left have made a decision not to cover this trial because we worry that it’ll compromise abortion rights.”

    The fact that members of the media purposefully ignored this corruption not only makes them an accomplice to the Gosnell infanticides and murder, but it also makes then an accessory to every wrongful death in every abortion clinic with unsafe health and safety standards.

    This is why we have seen a need for states to adopt legislation that places greater health and safety standards on abortion clinics.

    During the height of the Gosnell trial, we witnessed Virginia’s Board of Health pass a bill requiring all 20 state abortion clinics to uphold the same surgical standards that hospitals provide to their patients. And in 2011 alone, we saw a record-high 92 state laws passed to protect women’s safety in 24 states. These included parental notification requirements for minors and partial-birth abortion bans, as well as sonogram and heart-beat bills.

    Virginia got it right. But so far, only four other states maintain health and safety standards similar to those just passed by Virginia: Indiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Oklahoma. (Tennessee has also passed similar abortion clinic regulations, but the constitutionality of that legislation is being challenged in Planned Parenthood vs. Sundquist.)

    Few believe the liberal media’s one-liner that Gosnell’s practices justify decreasing regulations on abortion clinics to provide for more “safe, rare, and legal” abortions in a weak attempt to prevent mass murders at the hands of lunatics.

    But the communication moguls of America's broadcast networks have had free rein, with zero scrutiny, for so long that their audiences harass those pro-life advocates who sincerely want to protect women’s health through legislation.

    Its strange that they are able to manage to do it in the stories they are running now after they finally got the message and started to cover it.
    uh, no....You said one thing and I countered it with a fact to point out your inaccuracy. If you want to read more into it, go ahead. Is the New York Times printing gory dead baby pictures?

    The guy, Mark Lamott Hill who "admitted" the bias is a philly local and a AA guy who has a vested interest in the AA community (Marc Lamont Hill | Teachers College: Faculty Profile) ~ of course he would see media bias ~ heck ~ I totally 100% admit and have admitted there is media bias against minorities....I'm just saying this bias in this case isn't about ABORTION, Gloria, thats all.
    As I said in my first post and continue to state this case doesn't have the big "hook" that draws viewers, ratings, and ultimately MONEY. Its a business decision, not an abortion decision, thats all. Hot young women do. Baby killers like Casey Anthony do. Cases which could go either way do. This guy is as guilty as the day is long....it just doesn't bring the viewers or the interest those other cases that your links keep trying to compare it to do.
