Conservatives and pro-lifers have spilled a lot of ink exposing the glaring bias at play in the MSM's minimal coverage of the multiple murder trial of late-term and post-birth 'abortion' monster, Kermit Gosnell. Here we have a striking flash of candor from lefty Marc LaMont Hill on Huff Post Live (scroll through to the end):
“For what it’s worth, I do think that those of us on the left have made a decision not to cover this trial because we worry that it’ll compromise abortion rights. Whether you agree with abortion or not, I do think there’s a direct connection between the media’s failure to cover this and our own political commitments on the left. I think it’s a bad idea, I think it’s dangerous, but I think that’s the way it is.”
Points for telling it like it is, although the Right (and others) put two-and-two together awhile back. Lamont Hill earns some tepid applause for honesty here -- plus, at least the man's consistent: He's demonstrated a pattern of sympathizing with killers.
