Using a Nexis “all news” search, Michael Chapman at CNS News crunched the numbers and reports that over the last eight days the media have covered the story of Jason Collins, the NBA player who announced he was gay, a total of 2,381 times. In contrast, during the first eight days of the trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortion doctor accused of capital murder, there were only 115 stories.
The media are still on the culture rampage that dragged Obama over the 2012 finish line. Since Gosnell’s house of abortion horrors, and the lack of government oversight that allowed them to continue for nearly two decades, hurts the left culturally, a legitimate story about infanticide and the horrific reality of legalized abortion is ignored.
On the flip-side, anything involving homosexuality is a big win for the left, mainly because it is a way to push a divisive issue like gay marriage and keep everyone’s eye off of the economy.
