Media Avoiding the Kermit Gosnell Murder Trial

It’s not just the abortion aspect of the Kermit Gosnell murder trial that’s being underreported, there’s a race element to the story, too. Via the AP:

 

[Prosecution witness Ashley Baldwin] described [Co-defendant Eileen] O’Neill as a caring doctor who saw mostly older patients for high blood pressure or diabetes. O’Neill kept her office neat, in contrast to the rest of the clinic, Tina Baldwin said. So that’s where Gosnell steered wealthy or white patients, she said. Gosnell also met with them and administered their medications himself, she said.

“Nine out of 10 times, if the patient was white … he didn’t want me to (administer the drugs), because he wanted to meet with them himself,” she said.

Gosnell, who is black, would apologize to his mostly black staff, but say “that’s the way it is,” Tina Baldwin testified.

Now, this might not be such a big deal if the president hadn’t been so quick to call out other race issues such as the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida and the arrest of Professor Gates in Cambridge.

I guess if the president had a gynecologist  he wouldn’t look like Dr. Gosnell, nor did Dr. Gosnell act stupidly when killing babies born alive.

More hypocrisy from the left is that Gosnell was originally raided by the FBI and DEA on prescription drug abuse charges. Compare the left’s silence on Gosnell with their cacophony of outrage directed at Rush Limbaugh and his past drug problems.
