Gosnell the racist

Bloggers have pushed a focus on the Philadelphia trial of Kermit Gosnell.
The local newspaper covering the trial offers this nugget from Thursday's testimony.
Tina Baldwin testified that Gosnell treated women differently, based on their race. White women “with money” were taken to an “immaculate” upstairs room where Gosnell treated them personally. Poor black, Latino and other women were kept in the clinic’s dingy, dirty downstairs rooms, and were usually treated by medically unqualified staff.
Tina Baldwin said she asked Gosnell about why he treated white women differently from the others. She recalled him saying, “Sorry, but that’s how it is.”
Maybe that might anger the media enough to cover the trial.
