<p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 115%;">Rep. Marsha Blackburn tells
MRCTV that she’s trying to find out why major media aren’t covering the murder
trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell.</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;">“I had &nbsp;71 of my colleagues join me on the letter to
the executives of ABC, NBC, CBS asking why they have not been covering this
story,” Rep. Blackburn told MRCTV.</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;">The only response she
received was “a phone call from the president of CBS,” Rep. Blackburn said.</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;">The congresswoman voiced
concerned that the media has focused on more trivial human interest stories,
instead of this one of “life and death.”</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;">“This is a public safety
issue.” “We want to know why are they covering the snow cone kings, why are
they covering these other stories that certainly are human interest stories – but,
they are not public safety stories they are not life and death issues.”</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;">“We’re talking about people
being murdered. I think this will be one of the most tragic murder stories of
our time.”</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;">“One is forced to say, my
goodness, is this because we’re talking about poor women in minority
neighborhoods or is it because the media is trying to protect the abortion
business?”</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;">Asked which she thinks is the
case, Rep. Blackburn replied:</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;">“I’m waiting to hear from the
networks as to what their decision was.”</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12.0pt; mso-bidi-font-size: 11.0pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-bidi;">There are “a lot of
unanswered questions about” what Department of Health did about complaints
received about Gosnell’s clinic, she said.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p>
