Gingrich and the infanticide charge against Obama

During last night's Republican Presidential debate Newt Gingrich went after CNN's moderators for failing to bring up Obama's support for infanticide although they were quick to shine the spotlight on Republicans who condemn the policies of the current Administration regarding abortion, free contraception, and other controversial programs.
Not once during last night's debate or during the entirety of the 2008 Presidential campaign did the news media inform the public that as a state legislator in Illinois Barack Obama opposed a bill that would save the life of a new born infant if that infant survived an abortion attempt.
CNN claims that it did, indeed, report the story in 2008, but, as with the New York Times and other Leftwing oriented news organizations, editors can claim innocence by pointing to stories they placed on the back pages somewhere underneath the story of a local bag lady who gave away her lollipop to a child. True, they reported it, but the manner in which it was reported insured little or no attention.
