It's pretty remarkable that the internal investigation in the IRS didn't make the front page this morning. This is the same type of investigation that eventually unseated Shinkeki. How could any credible editor not think that an IRS internal investigation launching shouldn't draw front page headlines? Unless, of course, they're in the can...

It was hard to tell exactly what all the bitching was about with them all yammering over each other. One reason the IRS may not have made the front page--nothing new happened. Another investigation? How many have there been? If something is discovered and it doesn't make the news, then you'll have a point.

Yea like there has been any real investigating done ?

Um yea we have bad equipment and need more money, it was funny to find out you could work for BIG GOV and still get a bonus even if you owed back taxes.

The best we can hope for is they abolish the IRS, waste of tax payer money, along with the GOV Union jobs in the VA.

Oh, BS. This line is way overused. Did something new happen in the IRS thing? If not, what was supposed to be on the front page?

There was plenty of news. It was definitely a front page story, especially given the other stuff that was on the front page.

Interestingly, the Daily Mail in the UK managed to give it better coverage than the mainstream media wing of the Democrat party:

Just ignore him like everybody else does now when it comes to the IRS. He was the first one to come running into this thread. and hes up all night on weekdays scanning the internet for ''RWNJ bashing news''

Its pretty interesting when you look at his posting history. his first 8 or so years he posted very rarely in the ticket forum. but since Obamas been in office he's morphed into a Libtard version of Yes I will say it SHTSPRAYER

The way you ALWAYS defend the Obama administration on every single issue makes it impossible to ever take you seriously. This is a serious ****ing scandal and you'd know it if you would ever attempt to look at any issue in an evenhanded manner. This should be just as big as the Watergate scandal, yet most of the press is practically ignoring it.

Even MSNBC is critical of this. THAT should tell you something.

How am I defending the Obama administration? All I said was that I'm not aware of any new developments that warrant front-page coverage.

Several people have now bitched about me saying that, but not one has mentioned the actual newsworthy thing that should have been on the front page.

And until you implicate the President in this, GTFO with the Watergate comparisons.

The cosmo standard-
Horses and donuts = newsworthy.
Anything remotely negative regarding Obama = not newsworthy

It really is an astounding run Obama is on for cosmo - not only has he run a mistake free Presidency, he hasn't even done anything that would warrant a news story or thread to discuss a possibility of mistake. Every single story is simply faux outrage.
