IRS has 7,000 unreleased documents related to conservative and Tea Party targeting

The IRS has never admitted that any high-level employees of the agency knew the targeting was taking place.

As part of the targeting, organizations with the words "tea party" or "patriots" in the name of the applications were singled out for tougher, more lengthy questioning about their activities.

As a result, many of those groups were delayed by many months in receiving their tax-exempt designation from the IRS, slowing the organizations' ability to engage in political activity.

Repubs have to much going on now but I think they will take on the IRS and heads will roll. It's a damn shame Lois isn't in jail..

I guess there is a reason Trump didn't give Newt an official job

Gonna be interesting to watch how Fox News deals with this Bill O'Reilly ordeal, and Trump should have just kept his opinion to himself on that matter when asked by the press.  Baited him right into another pot of hot water.

Not familiar with the source, but found this clip an interesting read.

FDR's War Against the Press
Franklin Roosevelt had his own Breitbart, and radio was his Twitter.

I think it's beyond media bias at this point. It's just outright vindictiveness..

I prefer commercials to news casts today.  More informative.  Not that I watch the tube much anyway.  Get a lot in my inbox spam that gets deleted.

Left wing media with its constant negative message is applauding polls - that show approval ratings are still low...   
Glad that polls have been wrong before  ;) 

They are still pulling their hair out and screaming Russia Russia Russian... 



Meanwhile the grownups are working to replace the imploding Obamacare that just pulled out of Ohio leaving some with no choice at all...

I think you are right.

The media lied to them during the election - and they are lying to them now.
