The house of horrors that you may not even know about..

The media seating is empty.. The world isn’t paying attention to the Kermit Gosnell trial (well, they are now beginning to, most likely a response to numerous websites and Twitter users calling them out on it..

Why I Didn’t Write About Gosnell’s Trial–And Why I Should Have – The Daily Beast

This is an amazing and honest article by Megan McArdle of the DAILY BEAST.. And a must read in my opinion..

David Weigel of SLATE has another must read story on the Gosnell trial non coverage

The money quote:

So the question, raised by pro-lifers, is this: Explain to us why Gosnell isn’t a national story. Somebody else can try. I can’t explain it. It’s never made sense to me, how a local crime story becomes a national story. Two words: “Poop cruise.” CNN ran hours of coverage and grainy video of a stranded Carnival cruise ship, a situation that inconvenienced many and killed none. How does a missing college student or an angry man in a TSA line become part of Our National Conversation? I don’t know. I do know that a reporter in the bubble is less likely to be compelled by the news of an arrested abortionist.
