Reality is that a crashed airliner is going to get a lot more instantaneous news coverage than a corrupt politician. The news organizations pander to what people react to, that is reality. There is no nefariousness cover up, just differences in how media responds to our human nature.
Oh absolutely, this baby thing isn't interesting enough.....until the ombudsman comes out 3 months after the fact to lament how he regrets how the story didn't get more coverage.

More dead baby testimony:

There an 18-to-24-inch baby, who did not yet have eyes, was lying in a clear glass pan, she recalled in horror. It was “screeching, making this noise” that “sounded like a little alien,” she said. It “really freaked me out,” she said, causing her to leave the room.

Sorry it “freaked you out,” but as the Pundette comments:

“Making this noise” “like an alien”? That’s called crying. It’s what human babies do when they’re in distress, in this case, the ultimate distress. The “aliens” here are the inhuman monsters who caused that distress.

So . . . if a baby screams during an outside-the-uterus “abortion,” does it make a sound? Or, to put it another way, if an abortionist goes on trial for murdering infants, but the media refuses to cover it, is it really happening?

The U.S. media’s unanimous agreement to see no evil is sick and totalitarian. A very small consolation is that, with news judgments like these, the wretched American press is doing a pretty good job of sawing through its own neck.
Exactly. Of course a still under investigation non-story of a guy with a jewish name shooting a black person in self-defense in Florida merits non-stop attention because of all the potato salad.
