Erin Burnett frets over right-wing media’s ‘absence’ of Gosnell coverage

.@CNN today: @jaketapper covered the story.

@ac360 covered it.

@erinburnett asked @donnabrazile if it's okay to not cover the story.

If you’d like to argue that the pro-abortion Left hasn’t twisted itself into a pretzel over coverage of the Kermit Gosnell murder trial, try untangling this mess first. Following a huge push by conservatives on social media, CNN (and several other news networks) at last covered the trial that arose from Gosnell’s abortion “house of horrors.” Erin Burnett’s guest tonight, Donna Brazile, opined that both the Left and Right have allowed the grisly story to fly beneath the radar; yes, the same Donna Brazile who has been tweeting Media Matters’ and Salon’s swipes at conservative media for ignoring the story, which Salon claims has received “copious” coverage from feminist blogs and such.

On Gosnell “blackout,” where were conservatives before this week?… via @salon

@donnabrazile You don’t read @michellemalkin‘s blog? She has been covering it since it all started since January 2011. #StayClassy #hack

@cflancop @donnabrazile @michellemalkin donna brazile can’t read.

I think it was especially brave of @erinburnett to invite @donnabrazile on, to ask Donna if the media is liberal.

@aceofspadeshq @erinburnett @donnabrazile That is Priceless!I’ll sleep peacefully tonight knowing Donna is on the case.

@aceofspadeshq @erinburnett @donnabrazile I didn’t see the show.Let me guess, Donna said “no” and Erin agreed.

Yeah, pretty much.

Burnett’s reward for conceding that maybe, possibly liberals are culpable for burying the story? A tweet from Media Matters exposing her right-wing bias, apparently.

CNN’s Erin Burnett attacks “the Left” for ignoring the Gosnell trial after having ignored the Gosnell trial herself:

Burnett’s so far to the right, she had to have both Brazile and Salon’s Irin Carmon on to provide balance.

@erinburnett Interesting all three of your Gosnell guests highlighted low income women’s health issue; wouldn’t touch ending life issue.

.@erinburnett How many times did you cover the Gosnell case prior to tonight? #hypocrite

— ginalou (@ginalou) April 13, 2013

This @erinburnett segment on Gosnell is atrocious.

— John Ekdahl, Jr. (@JohnEkdahl) April 12, 2013

Wow @erinburnett‘s coverage consists of an insistence that it’s perfectly defensible to not cover it #eyesfixedfresolutelyinthemirror

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 12, 2013

.@erinburnett took a hell of a chance with that one.She was really dancing on the edge of a knife.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 13, 2013

.@erinburnett, do you know how I can nominate you for a Pulitzer for a #Gosnell piece consisting of your excuses for not covering it?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 12, 2013

@aceofspadeshq If Gosnell had killed those babies aboard a cruise with overflowing toilets, she would have been all over it

— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) April 12, 2013

@aceofspadeshq She covered the poop cruise. Live from the scene, so that she could smell the poop herself

— Allahpundit (@allahpundit) April 13, 2013

Carnival’s infamous “poop cruise”? Now that was a house of horrors, right?

@heminator @aceofspadeshq I watched live that night and I swear, at one point Burnett described how the ship smelled from the deck

Those were the good old days of journalism, huh?
