Only CBS Covers IRS Losing Two Years of Lois Lerner Emails

On Monday, only CBS This Morning reported Friday's stunning revelation that the IRS somehow lost two years worth of emails from Lois Lerner, the official at the center of the agency scandal in which conservative groups were unfairly targeted.

Neither NBC's Today nor ABC's Good Morning America bothered to cover the shocking development. However, both broadcasts did manage to find time for full reports on Britain's baby Prince George learning to walk.

Cordes then concluded her report with more IRS spin suggesting the congressional investigation of the scandal was just a waste of time and money:

When the Obama Administration and their lackeys say there’s no there, there, you can bet there’s a there, there.

Obstruction, destruction of evidence, etc.

That’s why you release stories such as this on Friday afternoons...

Agreed. CBS is still smarting from Sharyll Atkinson’s departure.

The person who orchestrated this ought to be charged with obstruction of Congress.

How would the feds act if someone they were after said they lost 2 years of emails?

They would find them.

“Neither NBC’s Today nor ABC’s Good Morning America bothered to cover ...” as they are not journalistic or news media. They are PROPAGANDA tools only.

That is just unreal

Seriously. It’s time to not just turn them off (if one hasnt done so already) And contact the sponsors

No free society can sustain itself with a corrupt political system and a complaint lapdog media

If this claim had been made by a Republican administration it would be front page, above the fold, news in the NYT every day for at least a month.

Ha! Quite so, and the emails ordering the audit will be lost forever to a super selective, multiple-disc-drive-and-tape-spanning data crash.

On the other hand, maybe CBS will be okay if they were the on-call desensitization platoon designated to make sure the scandal had a soft landing. Given how gentle they were with the story, I suppose that's possible.

And it won’t be reported. Not with the collapse of Iraq dominating everything.
