Press Suddenly Decides It Does Want to Cover Local Crime Stories

A so-called "citizen filibuster" succeeded last night when abortion supporters blocked Texas from outlawing post-20th-week abortions by hooting the legislative session into disorder. Rich Perry has called for the legislature to reconvene on July 1st.

I didn't see the coverage, but apparently the media was fawning over the "citizen filibusterers."

Here's the most incredible example imaginable -- something that proves a profound bias. You'll remember previously that Sarah Kliff, who covers abortion policy for the Washington Post, explained that she wasn't covering the Gosnell story because she doesn't cover "local crime stories."

Well, here's how she gushed over a pro-choice legislator's filibuster and the "citizen filibuster" that shut the house down:


Ah. Not merely a "local crime story" about some disorderly conduct at a state house, then?

How long will the media continuing lying directly to our faces even as they claim for themselves special status as "truth tellers"?

From Hot Air, a flashback to this two part analsys by long-time newspaperman Carl Cannon on the press' most sacred of sacred cows, abortion. It's the second part that is directly on this subject, while the first part is about media disdain for religion and the religious generally.

Mollie Hemingway continues along these lines by exposing the AP's reliable Narrative Template for abortion stories.
