Some of you might wonder why I constantly am reminding people of the IRS’s targeting of the Tea Party and other pro-America groups. Well, a lot has happened since innocent, patriotic citizens realized they were being illegally harassed by the government. Now, the IRS is in court — and is still pushing the limits of what is legally acceptable. They continue to cut corners, hide pieces of evidence, and evade direct court orders.
It’s a time honored game with the IRS, perhaps.
Most recently, the U.S. Court of Appeals caught the IRS red handed in an act of evasion regarding the infamous targeting scandal. I wrote about that HERE, if you’d like to read about it. In fact, if you want to know about the terrible behavior of the IRS, you’d have to pay attention online, since television news has been deafeningly silent on the issue.

… It’s been 513 days since any network has touched the IRS scandal. The last mention arrived on the October 28, 2014 edition of CBS This Morning when John Dickerson noted voters in states that would decide control of the Senate in the 2014 midterms were skeptical of the government due to a “series of different things from the Secret Service to Ebola to the IRS scandal.” The last time NBC noted the IRS scandal was 540 days ago on the October 5, 2014 Today show, when NBC’s Meet the Press host Chuck Todd briefly noted that public skepticism about the government’s handling of the Ebola crisis was well-earned due to “Secret Service blunders, IRS losing e-mails, the Veteran Affairs Administration botching all these wait times.”
But that’s nothing compared to the IRS scandal news drought on ABC. The last time the IRS targeting imbroglio got any airtime on ABC was 686 days ago in a 16 second brief by Amy Robach on the May 8, 2014 edition of Good Morning America, when Robach reported that “six Democrats have joined Republicans in the House” to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress.
This lapse in network coverage is no coincidence. Our liberal administration has no desire for a spotlight on one of their biggest flaws. With fewer eyes on the IRS than in the Fall of 2015, it’s possible they started to feel safe again, falling back into old habits.
That’s why I talk about it, and will continue to talk about it until these people pay for what they’ve done to Americans and their country.
