What’s wrong with this coverage? Only this:
On Monday, June 1, one day after the abortionist’s shooting and a day before the editions quoted above, a black American Muslim convert, Carlos Bledsoe, aka Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad, 24, pulled up in his car at 10:30 a.m. in front of an Army-Navy recruiting center in Little Rock, Arkansas. Muhammad opened fire at the military personnel there. He killed one soldier, William Long, 24, and wounded another, Quinton Ezeagwula, 18.

You will not find a mention of any of this on the front pages of America’s newspapers, if any mention at all. It’s not newsworthy, is it?
Who are these people? No, I don’t mean the respective killers. I mean the editors of America’s newspapers who trumpet the killing of a late-term abortionist who made a living at crushing and dismembering little humans, and deign not to notice an American jihadi, a convert to the Religion of Peace, who murders American soldiers in a shopping center in Arkansas in broad daylight.
Who are they? Do they get their marching orders from the same pasha in Washington so that they all make the same editorial choices? Or was the same chip implanted in their contemptible skulls sometime during college?
