Now NYT Wants to Cover Gosnell Trial?

Five days ago, the New York Times pulled their reporter from coverage of the Gosnell trial, stating that the newspaper “had other stories to cover”.

It was the only coverage by the “acclaimed” news organization since it announced the beginning of Dr. Gosnell’s trial back on March 19th, 2013.

Yesterday marked the beginning of Dr. Gosnell’s defense.  Today, Judge Jeffrey Minehart has dropped three of the murder charges and five counts of corpse abuse.

Gosnell faces eight total murder counts — one for killing a woman in a botched abortion and seven for killing babies in abortion-infanticides that involved live-birth abortions and snipping their necks after birth.

Gosnell’s defense attorney asked the judge to drop three of the charges for killing the babies and the judge agreed with the contention there was not enough evidence to convict Gosnell on those charges. Another charge of infanticide was also dropped. He still faces the other charges the prosecution has brought and the murder trial will continue on them.

One of the dropped charges involves a 28-week-old baby Gosnell killed and whose remains were kept in an abortion clinic freezer.

Common pleas court Judge Jeffrey Minehart also dropped five counts of corpse abuse at the request of his defense attorney Jack McMahon and did not explain his ruling dropping any of the charges.

And now, NYT issues a story relating to the trial?  When charges are dropped???

And there’s no bias at all on the part of this media organization?  /sarc
