Question of the Day
The gun control debate will soon be louder, courtesy of Goucher College in Baltimore. On stage, it’s National Rifle Association President David Keene versus Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, plus Colleen Barry, an associate professor of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Jeffrey Swanson, a professor in psychiatry at Duke University.
“I am looking forward to a robust and thought-provoking conversation,” Mr. Horwitz notes. Organizers frame the April 15 debate as a “balanced panel of experts.” The event will be broadcast online at the campus website Goucher.edu.
GLARING AT THE OMISSION
Where is the broadcast coverage of the trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, charged with the deaths of seven infants and a woman? That’s what Media Research Center president Brent Bozell wants to know. The conservative watchdog group reveals that ABC, CBS and NBC have given the story “zero seconds of coverage” since the trial began three weeks ago; and CBS has had only a single mention since the doctor’s 2011 arrest.
“The Gosnell case, in which his abortion clinic has been described as a ‘house of horrors,’ could have been plucked from the fever dream of Hollywood’s most depraved slasher film writer, and yet ABC, CBS and NBC have completely censored it out of the news,” Mr. Bozell says. “The horrific excesses of the abortion industry — exemplified by Gosnell and Planned Parenthood — are major, national news stories. But the pro-abortion liberal media are determined to hide them from the public.”
Mr. Bozell has demanded coverage in a letter to the three networks, signed by 20 fellow conservatives who include American Values President Gary Bauer, Citizens United President David Bossie, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, Hispanic Leadership Fund President Mario Lopez, Priests for Life director Father Frank Pavone and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.
