There was a lot of Twitter activity trying to drive the mainstream media to cover the trial of Kermit Gosnell.
The Washington Post and NY Times, among others, now will be sending reporters to the trial, although denying that any pro-abortion bias caused them to shy away. As you also know, there is a fairly furious effort to claim that feminists were ahead of the issue, a theory I have debunked.
The infographic below, provided to me by former Legal Insurrection contributor Matthew Knee now with Target Point Consulting, illustrates the surge of Twitter activity last week and into the weekend. Here are some sections, with the full infographic below:
Last week, conservatives flooded Twitter to demand that the mainstream media cover the Dr. Kermit Gosnell infanticide trial. They saw rapid success, causing mainstream media coverage of the Gosnell trial to triple and non-Twitter social media and web/blog coverage to quadruple from Thursday to Friday. Additionally, Gosnell was tweeted about twice as much as President Obama on Friday, and sustained an advantage through Saturday.
