As of tonight, #Gosnell is one of the highest trending topics on twitter. Is it because we all saw the story on the nightly news and now need to share our collective gut reactions? Or maybe we’re venting our disbelief over at those shocking new revelations that came out during today’s court proceedings?…
No, as of right now, the collective national outrage is focused on a target other than Gosnell himself. Right now, the masses are disgusted with the likes of @CBSnews, @ABC, @NBCnews, @nytimes, and the rest of the mainstream media for completely ignoring the most horrific homicide case currently unfolding.
Kirsten Powers writes in USAToday:
We’ve forgotten what belongs on page one.
It’s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page.
Well thankfully, the pro-life community is making up for the media’s serious lack of coverage; and here at S4U we too want to raise our voice for the victims of 3801 Lancaster Street.
Don’t let the media bias keep you from being informed. Here’s a round up of some of today’s outstanding articles that tell us the hard to hear truth. We can’t ignore this tragedy. We can’t forget these victims. Speak for the born and the unborn – the precious lives slaughtered by Dr. Gosnell.

Or if you’re on twitter, I suggest following @MZHemmingway since she is constantly posting updates on the trial and its coverage (or lack thereof).
We’re hoping to see more mainstream articles released in the coming days especially as the social media outrage continues to grow. Do you want to help get the media’s attention? Be a part of getting the news out and show them how valuable news reporting is done. We wholeheartedly agree with @OwenStrachan’s advice:
“I vote for every evangelical who has a Twitter account to Tweet about the Gosnell horror tomorrow. Social media is powerful, right?”
