Bozell: Broadcast Networks 'Allergic to the Truth About the IRS Scandal'
News Busters ^ | May 15, 2014 | By Brent Bozell

Posted on 05/15/2014 3:41:51 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

What will it take for ABC, CBS, and NBC to cover the IRS targeting scandal, which is no doubt bigger than Watergate? Time after time after time, we’ve seen major developments in this story go completely unreported, or, at best, given a few token seconds. The liberal media are downright allergic to the truth about the IRS scandal.

This administration has lied countless times to the media’s face, and they just continue to sit there and take it. They’re so lovesick with everything Obama that they can’t bring themselves to do their jobs and report the news. It’d be pitiful if it weren’t so dangerous for the country.

They know danm well that the truth will reveal that the man they elected is a marxist, hates America, and favors those who would destroy us.
The media knows very well. They do what they do deliberately and intentionally, with full knowledge and awareness.

It will take a free press, and those entities willfully are NOT it.

The IRS scandal dwarfs Benghazi. We need a select committee for the IRS scandal.

The IRS scandal dwarfs Benghazi.

Benghazi involves providing weapons to an Al Quaida affiliate, or in other words, capital treason.

So, politically, yes the IRS scandal is a bigger deal. Legally, no it's not.

Or any other truth for that matter.

Much like most Americans.

If no scalps are taken over the IRS scandal, the rats in government will be given a de facto 2016 hunting license for conservative and tea party individuals and groups. We only thought Obama’s IRS, FBI, ATF, NSA abused their authority in 2012.

In the old days, thugs in the streets beat up political enemies. How passe’. Today's tyrants hire lawyers and bureaucrats to destroy the lives and property of opponents.

If no grand juries are called, and called soon, we can kiss away forever any hope of restoring our republic.

“This administration has lied countless times to the media’s face, and they just continue to sit there and take it.”

While there are many in the media who will still defend the administration to their deaths, at this point, it is a matter of survival for many, I think.

The streets are littered with the destroyed media areers of those who dared to ask the wrong question, plenty of examples have been made.

Play along with whatever Daily Kos decides is Today’s Orwellian Groupthink, or face risking that cushy media job, or worse.

It was this way in 1930’s Germany, too.

Sabatage the system.

With all of the cash the blue blood country clubbers running the the RNC have at their disposal, it's telling that these greedy bastards won't pony up to fund a counter propaganda offensive against the CPUSA and their fellow travelers in the "Press".

Prima Facie evidence that its us out here outside the Beltway versus the POLITICAL CLASS in DC.

GOP other than Cruz is not lifting a finger in the House to abolish the IRS .

They have voted to fund Obamacare.

GOP doesn't care if they are the conductors on the gravy train or merely along for the ride.

We do not have a party that speaks for taxpayers, only two factions in DC that have elections to determine who controls the spoils.

There will be no solutions coming from the political class in DC.

The nation is too large and to divided to continue to be governed by an elite political class in DC that extorts 4 trillion dollars a year from those outside the beltway, skims off the top for themselves and their friends, and then deficit spends even more in exchange for votes to keep itself and the Federal apparatchiks living in fat city.

The liberal media are downright allergic to the truth...

There's small staffs at NBC, CBS, and ABC news... without 'tips' from their democrat friends they wouldn't have anything to report on... When the coin of the realm is information... 'tips' are bribes. Brent Bozell knows this... it's the only way it makes sense....

"News" people with great black books of sources get the best stories and move up in their professions. Black books are filled with democrats and at some point they need to be 'taken care of'...

If Obama was behind the IRS targetting conservative groups, he should be impeached. This is far worse than Benghzi, which is more akin to Iran-Contra.

Supplying portable anti-aircraft missiles easily smuggled into the Untied States to a terrorist group that has already killed 3,000 Americans is no Iran Contra.

Republicans are not up to the job. They have shown very little interest in pursuing any of these crimes and only do so when backed into a corner and even then they slow walk everything and take half-measures.

They can not be entrusted to undertake other projects.

Think about what Republicans have become.

Jeb Bush says he will govern like Lyndon Johnson, recent presidential candidate Mitt Romney supports socialized medicine, John Boehner is “hellbent” for Amnesty. On and on.

Today’s Republican Party is the radical leftists of the Democrat Party of the 1960’s.

You have nailed it! Greedy bastards have corrupted the body politics and have no regard for a free nation under God. When we talk about the principles of our founding it has no relevance to their pursuit of the government trough. They are trained like Pavlovian dogs only to that which lines their pockets and massages their narcissistic ego.
