State Servile Media: Big Three Networks Censor Huge IRS Scandal Developments

By Geoffrey Dickens
At this point it might take a dead body to get the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks to give the IRS-Tea Party scandal any sort of real coverage. 

Huge developments in the last week – like IRS official Lois Lerner receiving a criminal referral from the House Ways and Means Committee and e-mails proving she fed tax information on a targeted group to the staff of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D) – were completely censored by ABC and NBC news. 


Only a 90 second report on Thursday’s CBS This Morning kept last week’s revelations from being totally blacked out on the Big Three networks.  

In the last seven days the following IRS scandal developments have emerged:

■ The House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former IRS official Lois Lerner for criminal charges.

■ E-mails proved Lerner fed tax information to Cummings’s office about voter fraud prevention group True the Vote.

■ E-mails showed Lerner talked about taking a job with Barack Obama’s advocacy group Organizing for Action - while she was investigating non-profit applicants.

■ A Dallas IRS office was found to be covered with Vote for Obama stickers and engaged in campaign cheerleading. An IRS employee in Kentucky was suspended because he told a taxpayer that Republicans were “going to take women back 40 years...if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer.”

■ A new report confirmed Tea Party groups were targeted 100 percent of the time and that subsequent attempts to make the review seem more neutral, by adding some liberal groups that were looked at, were merely cosmetic changes.

Yet, not one second of ABC or NBC airtime was devoted to any of these major developments. In fact only CBS, in a 90 second story on Thursday’s This Morning, covered the Lerner criminal referral and charges of IRS offices campaigning for Obama. Neither CBS, nor any of the other network evening or morning shows covered the other revelations.  It’s not as if the networks didn't....

  1. the absence of a free and investigative media proves that the USA is under a dictatorship and the people had better wake up and do something about it really fast or it is game over for ever.

  2. I'm with Dennis!! The media has inundated us with sports and reality shows to the point that 90 % of the populace walks around with
    their heads up their asses in a constant euphorial state. When young people that go to college and have the right to cast a vote in who will run their country, when they cannot tell you how many senators their state has, nor can they identify or name a picture of Joe Biden as vice president, then, that is a sorry state of mentality of what our country is becoming and will be soon. Instead of getting smarter, we're getting dumber by the day.
