FULL TITLE - Washington Correspondent Mason Insists Journalists Would ‘Gallop After’ IRS If Any ‘Proof of a Scandal'


If only there were an Obama scandal for journalists to cover.

Almost exactly two years after the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank ludicrously claimed “the media would love to have an Obama scandal to cover,” on Sunday’s MediaBuzz on FNC, veteran DC journalist Julie Mason encapsulated the attitude of the Washington press corps which has little interest in the IRS scandal, insisting that “every journalist in town would love if there was proof of a scandal, they would be galloping after it.”

Audio: MP3 clip

The long-time White House correspondent for the Houston Chronicle (she also put in brief stints with the Washington Examiner and Politico.com), who now hosts the daily Press Pool radio show on Sirius-XM’s POTUS channel (bio), was bewildered: “Where’s the proof of the crime?”

All these idiots have to do is go to their own I.T. dept. and ask how probable it is to lose all emails and backups.

Why not find the proof, as journalists helped do in Watergate?

Why don’t they just call Dan Rather to create some “proof”? They didn’t seem to have any problem with making things up for the George W. Bush ANG “scandal”, now did they?

Journalists would “gallop” after the IRS if this was a Republican Administration. Because it is the Marxist party in charge they will maintain their position as the Praetorian Guard, with phalanxes pointing out at anyone who comes near their mad emperor.

When the IRS claimed the emails had been irretrievably lost, they were confessing to a crime.

At this point if you had a complete repeat of Watergate by this Administration, the MSM would yawn and say what is the crime?

Actually, in totality, this ‘transparent’ Administration has done far worse!

The White House hasn’t yet issued a press report on any IRS scandal. Therefore it doesn’t exist.

You forget how lazy kids are today, they’ve been handed everything and told how great they are since birth. Do you really expect them to stick their nose to the ground and dig to find out out anything they can’t find using Google?
