Fox News to air one-hour special on Gosnell trial
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 24, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Fox News will air a one-hour documentary on “house of horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell in two weeks.
The special program will air at 9 p.m. on Sunday, May 5, according to Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life.
The Gosnell story garnered national media coverage after a successful campaign on the social media site Twitter two weeks ago that generated more than half-a-million mentions of the abortionist and hundreds of thousands of uses of the #Gosnell hashtag.
The height of media coverage came when NBC's Today show questioned Barack Obama about the trial.
MSNBC also discussed the issue in the wake of the "Tweetfest." The CBS Evening News carried a segment about the horrific capital murder trial. CNN began its coverage with a segment on Jake Tapper's program featuring Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Joseph Slobodzian, who said Gosnell enjoyed "a pretty good reputation” before being arrested for murder.
“From everything we've heard, he served the community,” Slobodzian said. “If you couldn't pay, you got your medical care for free.”
Glenn Beck featured much different coverage during an 18-minute segment on TheBlazeTV.

“This is some of the most disturbing information I have ever seen,” he said. “And I in the last five years have studied the Holocaust and Auschwitz, so I'm not shocked by an awful lot anymore, unfortunately. But I am shocked by what I am about to show you tonight.”
“This is the biggest, bloodiest mass murder in the history of our country,” he said. “This guy is far, far worse than anything that Jeffrey Dahmer did.”
He added that the media “didn't cover it until they were shamed into it.”
