Gosnell Case Reveals MSM’s Waning Power

    “In the last century, there were a few central news gatekeepers who controlled what stories Americans heard.” Welcome to the new world though I do recall MSM airing Gosnell case last month (perhaps without enough intensity given subject matter).

    It makes you wonder what else the MSM has swept under the rug over the last few decades.

    It’s certainly plausible to me that many of the trends in thought over the last generation have been formed without adequate attention to reality.

    If only the MSM had any shame left in them.

    • Jim Luebke

      Shame is something the Boomers are trying to do away with, to become more “accepting and enlightened”. Look at what the MSM is pushing on us as “marriage” these days.

  • It is a story that the MSM has been bypassed by people outraged by this story, I suppose, but that does not change the fact they have monstrously ignored a story about the murder of mothers and babies because they favor abortion. This makes them morally culpable in a very real way. They control the narrative on many other issues that need to see the light of day but never do. Many should leave the business. Kudos to Kirsten Powers for having the courage to point this out.
    When will we see some introspection from other people who call themselves purveyors of the news? From what I can see, they are a pretty shallow bunch.

      Excellent comment Merina. I completely agree.

    Obama’s reelection shows just how powerful the MSM still is.

    This is a nation not only of “low information” voters, but “no information” voters.

    This is by design, and twitter and FB aren’t going to cut it.

    Each conservative must work to control both their virtual and geographical precinct, and make the case for their ideas at every water cooler and cocktail party. If they are afraid, or cowed by PC mentality, they are merely playing their part in fostering the decline of civilization.

  • The recently revealed facts about what went on in this horrific slaughterhouse in which literally dozens of common employees willingly joined in to the carnage with, apparently, no compunctions reveal to any with eyes to see that the evil work of the pro abortion lobby in devaluing human life has had its predictable result. The true scandal is that the decades of propaganda from the pro murder crowd have allowed far too many to silently accede to human abuse that would put the Nazi’s to shame.
    The “pro choice” crowd, one and all, have blood on their hands and it can only be hoped that they are too ashamed to even allow mention of these evil deeds.

    I don’t think we have succeeded in prying their cold dead fingers off the gates yet. But as even the self laudatory Newseum in Washington DC admits fewer people trust the MSM every year.
