ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Eight Republican lawmakers have not forgotten the disturbing undercover Planned Parenthood videos which have been essentially ignored by major broadcasters.

“It is absolutely outrageous that mainstream media networks such as ABC, NBC and CBS have chosen not to report on the disturbing undercover Planned Parenthood videos which depict the trafficking of infant body parts in the United States,” says Rep. Louie Gohmert, who cites a recent Media Research Center analysis that found the “Big Three” aired just over a minute of the 16 hours of video footage produced and released over a two-month period by the Center for Medical Progress.

The Texas congressman composed an open letter to the presidents of all three networks, which was signed by Reps. Andy Barr, Jeff Duncan, Trent Franks, Tim Huelskamp, Walter B. Jones and Jeff Miller.

“In failing to cover this story, you provide unequivocal evidence that your coverage is politically driven and that journalistic integrity has been abandon. It is imperative that you cover this dramatic assault on women and children,” the letter advised the networks, which have yet to respond, according to Mr. Gohmert’s office

“They should be held accountable for their journalistic malpractice and disregard of such atrocities,” he advises, also noting that the Media Research Center and two dozen civic leaders also inquired about the scanty coverage — and they also “remain ignored.”

The lawmaker also advised, “We urge your networks to shine your journalistic light where you have thus far shown neglect and darkness.”
