Why won't the media cover the IRS scandal?


The HillJust this past week, the IRS revealed that it had found nearly 7,000 documents potentially related to the targeting of tea party groups. Yes, the agency that has stone-walled Congress for four years, lost computers and hard drives and tens of thousands of emails, just discovered 6,924 documents in response to an ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from Judicial Watch...

Two hallmarks of a free society are that individuals do not have to live in fear that their political views or activities will cause them to be subjected to abuse by the federal taxing agency, and that the press holds government accountable when it becomes abusive to its citizens. It seems, in both areas, we have a lot more work to do.

The most disappointing part of this is that after increasing Republican control of government for the past 6 years, we still do not have substantial progress on this issue.

It's almost like the Republicans in office don't want to do anything about it.

It's almost like they don't like being challenged in primaries by people who will actually do something instead of just talking about doing something.
