demonstrating that, like the WaPo, NBC basically chose to treat it as a local crime story while seldom mentioning it nationally. Compare and contrast that with the 24/7 national coverage of the Trayvon Martin story.

And, of course, all these links are from the past few days, after the MSM was battered by new media into reluctantly admitting the story.

I don’t think that’s what my reader had in mind. Too bad.

    Or, as the GetReligion blog points out, this 14-page “Washington Post” story on the arrest of protestors against nuclear weapons in Tennessee, versus the “Washington Post” reporter who, when they asked her why she wasn’t covering the Gosnell trial, said she didn’t cover “local crime stories”.
    Abortionist in Philadelphia kills one woman, mutilates other, kills babies born alive – local crime, nothing of interest outside Philly.
    Three protesters arrested in Tennessee, nobody so much as falls over and cuts their knee – nationally important story!
