The Oklahoma City Bombing

On April 19, 1995, around 9:03 a.m., just after parents dropped their children off at day care at the Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, the unthinkable happened.

A massive bomb inside a rental truck exploded, blowing half of the nine-story building into oblivion. A stunned nation watched as the bodies of men, women, and children were pulled from the rubble for nearly two weeks.

When the smoke cleared and the exhausted rescue workers packed up and left, 168 people were dead.

Prosecutor Joseph Hartzler began his opening statement in the Timothy McVeigh trial by reminding the jury of the terror and the heartbreak:? “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, April 19th, 1995, was a beautiful day in Oklahoma City — at least it started out as a beautiful day. The sun was shining. Flowers were blooming. It was springtime in Oklahoma City.

Sometime after six o’clock that morning, Tevin Garrett’s mother woke him up to get him ready for the day. He was only 16 months old. He was a toddler; and as some of you know that have experience with toddlers, he had a keen eye for mischief. He would often pull on the cord of her curling iron in the morning, pull it off the counter top until it fell down, often till it fell down on him. That morning, she picked him up and wrestled with him on her bed before she got him dressed. She remembers this morning because that was the last morning of his life….”

Gutless Media being called out on Kermit Gosnell story

Earlier today I posted about the abortion story that media are refusing to cover.

PJ Media are calling out the media who are spiking the story asking for journalists who had their story about Kermit Gosnell spiked to blow the whistle.

For the past few weeks, a man has been on trial who, according to testimony, is likely to surpass Ridgeway as the U.S. serial killer with the highest body count, and he may surpass McVeigh as the worst mass murderer as well. Ridgeway is suspected of more than 90 murders and he was convicted of 41. This man stands trial for murdering eight ? however, testimony puts the number at more than 100.

Further: the other four mentioned above primarily murdered adults. Only one murdered children. Indeed, a significant portion of the revulsion the country will forever direct towards McVeigh involves the 19 children at a daycare center who were killed by his bomb.

After being apprehended, McVeigh told investigators he did not know there was a daycare center in the building ? and that if he had known, ?it might have given [him] pause to switch targets.?

Even McVeigh perhaps thought the murder of children to be beyond the pale.

The man currently on trial?

He?almost exclusively?murdered children.

To compound the enormity of the event as a news story: the man did not act alone. Several others, who are also being prosecuted, aided him in the murder of perhaps more than 100 babies.

A contender for trial of the century? Objectively, yes.

And yet as?the?photo above shows, no media are turning up. There was a media frenzy for the appearance of the Joker killer, but nothing for this?

In an immoral, unprofessional, bizarre ? surely, several other negative descriptors are apt ? display of unity, virtually the entire U.S. media industry save for those generally referred to as ?conservative outlets? have instituted a blackout of the trial.

Infanticide ? the crime that gave even Timothy McVeigh pause ??is a left/right issue for your employer??

The media behavior regarding the trial of monster Kermit Gosnell is a turning point: with all of conservative media?s complaints regarding the liberal bias of U.S. media, we never imagined?this could happen.?

We know there are journalists out there infuriated by their employer?s current behavior: The change must start with you.

We are looking for whistleblowers: if you have any information regarding why your employer is not covering the Gosnell trial,?please submit it here. Your anonymity will be protected.

What has happened to our media? Why have they become neutered, fearful and establishment? Gutlessness is not a trait that journalists need, and yet it has developed inextricably over time.
