The IRS Scandal, Day 668

IRS Logo 2Midland Daily News editorial,  IRS Scandal Continues to Grow:

So, why is there so little interest in the IRS scandal?

This story has been gathering steam in terms of facts being revealed, but so far the major news outlets are showing little, if no interest, in covering the details.

Here’s what’s happened just recently:

  • One high-ranking government official said that there is “potential criminal activity” involved in the disappearance and hiding of emails belonging to IRS officials involved in the targeting of conservatives between 2010 and 2012.
  • Despite IRS Commissioner John Koskinen repeatedly saying under oath in previous Congressional hearings that Lois Lerner’s emails could not be recovered, investigators have been successful in recovering nearly 33,000 emails relevant to the IRS investigation. ...

Long-time political columnist George Will said on a talk show in February that the IRS scandal is as big as Watergate or the Iran-Contra scandal. He then asked, “so where’s the media?”

We are wondering the same thing. Getting to the truth — and holding our government officials accountable for their words and actions — should be a top priority for the press and for all Americans.

As most have noticed over the last seven years...most of the MSM are in the tank for the Obama administration. Nobel Peace Prize winner...who did exactly nothing to earn it...and all that. Read Attkisson's book...CBS (for example) is simply not interested in investigating ANY potential wrong doing on the part of this administration. When something awful is uncovered Obama simply says " I read about it in the press"...and THAT is the end of the story. Historians will be writing about the failure of the US press during the Obama years for many years to come. They have simply given him a pass. Nixon only attempted to militarize the IRS and it was a count on his bill of impeachment. Obama actually did it and it's not even a story.
