The Killing of pro-lifer James Pouillon

Many other bloggers have covered the tragic death of this peaceful man, Fr Finigan amongst them and, of course, Lifesite News.

The silence of the mainstream media has been deafening, as Fr Finigan so eloquently illustrates:

According to Zenit on 14th September, Father Frank Pavone, Founder of Priests for Life, said:
This is a time to console one another, and to renew our determination to organize peaceful protests. It is no time for fear. And I am waiting to hear the abortion advocates condemn this killing.

A correspondent has written to the editor of Zenit as follows:
With all due respect to Father Pavone, we'll be waiting a very long time for the media, at least, to pick up this story. While I do not condone the murder of Doctor Tiller, the utter corruption of the media is proven by this case, because when he was killed, there was wall-to-wall coverage, and they tried to use the incident to marginalize us pro-lifers as the lunatic fringe. Their silence speaks volumes.

I think Mr Melchor has hit the nail on the head, or have there been any condemnations from the pro-abortion side?

You can see Fr Pavone's initial comments on the death or Dr Tiller here:

Further examples of media corruption at Fr Ray Blake. Matthew Paris is apparently "angry" about the publicity given to the relics of St Therese.
