From our friends at the Media Research Center Cyber Alert, who relentlessly pursue and expose leftist media bias, malpractice and censorship, comes the latest on the IRS SCANDAL (that the Lame St. Media wants to censor while telling you to move on; nothing to see here).

Newly Obtained E-Mails Show Lerner Gave Tea Party Tax Info to FEC, Big Three Networks Censor

On October 31 the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard reported the following: “The Internal Revenue Service shared highly confidential tax information of several Tea Party groups in the IRS scandal with the Federal Election Commission, a clear violation of federal law, according to newly obtained emails. The public watchdog group Judicial Watch told Secrets Thursday that it was former scandal boss Lois Lerner who shared the information on groups including the American Future Fund and the American Issues Project.’”So far none of the Big Three (ABC, NBC, CBS) networks have reported the latest IRS scandal finding. In fact, they’ve stopped reporting on the IRS scandal altogether. It’s been 131 days since ABC last mentioned the IRS scandal on June 26. CBS last referenced the IRS imbroglio 102 days ago. On NBC a brief Chuck Todd reference, on the October 30 Nightly News, about the failed ObamaCare rollout being the latest in a list of struggles for the President that included “the IRS, Benghazi investigations,” ended a 125 day long drought of IRS mentions.

In that time there have been many stunning revelations that, so far, ABC, CBS and NBC have refused to report on. The following is a list of IRS scandal developments that have broken in the last couple of months:

IRS Official May Have Traded Confidential Taxpayer Info with White House, Big Three Networks Censor

On October 9 The Blaze reported the following: “Sarah Hall Ingram, the Internal Revenue  Service official who used to head the office directly involved in the  targeting of conservative groups, may have shared confidential taxpayer  information with White House officials, according to 2012 emails  uncovered by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.  Ingram, who now heads the IRS’s Obamacare enforcement division,  counseled senior White House officials on how to deal with a lawsuit  from religious groups opposed to the Obamacare contraception mandate.”

Dr. Ben Carson Targeted by IRS After Prayer Breakfast with Barack Obama

On October 1 the Washington Times reported that Dr. Ben Carson revealed he had his first ever encounter  with the IRS after he delivered a speech critical of public policy in  front of Barack Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast back in February.
 The Times’ Douglas Ernst relayed the following: “Dr.  Ben S. Carson went years without ever having a run-in with the Internal  Revenue Service. But his good fortune changed after his speech at the  National Prayer Breakfast in February, the former Johns Hopkins  neurosurgeon said Monday night at an event with business leaders and  elected officials in Alabama.

Lois Lerner Retires From IRS

ObamalernerOn September 23 the Washington Times reported the following: “Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the  IRS tea party targeting scandal, retired from the agency Monday morning  after an internal investigation found she was guilty of ‘neglect of  duties’ and was going to call for her ouster, according to congressional  staff.”



IRS Still Tracked Groups After They Were Approved

On September 19 USA Today reported the following: “Even after the IRS approved political advocacy  groups for tax-exempt status, auditors in Dallas tracked those groups  ‘for potential future action,’ the acting IRS commissioner said  Wednesday. Daniel Werfel’s comments to a congressional subcommittee were  the first acknowledgement that IRS auditors in a separate unit in  another city were also involved in scrutinizing political groups. The  Dallas unit tracked groups that were referred by the IRS office in  Cincinnati that reviews tax-exemption applications.”

IRS Employees Were Egged on by Media Reports that Mocked the Tea Party

On September 17 the Washington Times reported  the following: “IRS employees were ‘acutely’ aware in 2010 that  President Obama wanted to crack down on conservative organizations and  were egged into targeting tea party groups by press reports mocking the  emerging movement, according to an interim report being circulated  Tuesday by House investigators. The report, by staffers for Rep. Darrell  E. Issa, California Republican and chairman of the House Oversight and  Government Reform Committee, quoted two Internal Revenue Service  officials saying the tea party applications were singled out in the  targeting program that has the agency under investigation because ‘they  were likely to attract media attention.’”

IRS Demanded Donor Lists from Conservative Groups, Might Make Them Public

September 17 Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner reported the following: “An  ongoing House Ways and Means Committee probe of the IRS scandal has  uncovered proof that the agency demanded donor lists almost exclusively  from conservative groups and could make them public despite promises to  destroy the sensitive tallies of contributors.”

IRS Documents Reveal Agency Flagged Groups for ‘Anti-Obama Rhetoric,’ Big Three Refuse to Report

On September 18 the USA Today,  in a front page story, reported the following: “Newly uncovered IRS  documents show the agency flagged political groups based on the content  of their literature, raising concerns specifically about ‘anti-Obama  rhetoric,’ inflammatory language and ‘emotional’ statements made by  non-profits seeking tax-exempt status.”

Lerner’s Official IRS Scandal Storyline Undercut by Newly Released E-Mails

On September 11 the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page, in an article headlined “Lois Lerner’s Own Words,” reported the following: “In a February 2011 email, Ms. Lerner advised  her staff—including then Exempt Organizations Technical Manager Michael  Seto and then Rulings and Agreements director Holly Paz—that a Tea Party  matter is ‘very dangerous,’ and is something ‘Counsel and [Lerner  adviser] Judy Kindell need to be in on.’ Ms. Lerner adds, ‘Cincy should  probably NOT have these cases.’”

E-Mails Show Lerner was Preparing for Over a Year for IRS Scandal to Be Exposed: ‘We’re Going to Get Creamed’

On the September 4 edition of Erin Burnett OutFront,  CNN’s Drew Griffin reported the following: “CNN has learned the IRS had  been preparing for that bomb to drop for more than a year. E-mails  obtained by CNN show IRS lawyers, the commissioner and Lois Lerner  herself were meeting to discuss how to respond when Congress found out  with increasing sense of panic way back on March 2nd of 2012. Lerner  writes, ‘we are going to get creamed.’”

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
