With all the outrage that has been posted here about the oil companies and fracking, I am wondering why no one has said a peep about that abortion clinic trial that has been ongoing for a while. I guess the MSM media has just been MIA about reporting on it, and CNN was shamed into saying something about it yesterday.

It is a murder trial. you don't get the details of the murders around here normally. You did not get the news that an honor student was shot to death at a soccer game, and that student was a friend of my DGS. He was collateral damage. Just another homicide by gun. I know that is not news.
The murdering doctor is news only because of all the bad circumstances. Beyond that for other regions of the country it is just s story from some place not like them. Not reporting is part of the head in the sand mentality.
Your original post compared it to the fracking and concerns of spilled oil and tar sands. it is only news to some of us. Fracking is a huge issue here. We are near a radon belt. Disturbances of the radon will bring radioactive water an other material to he surface. We have a finite amount of water on his planet. We are about out of oil and the fracked stuff is for export.
Exxon has gone out of its way to minimize coverage. That is different than the murder trial. No one is buying so coverage can't or won't be done.
