What will it take for ABC, CBS, and NBC to cover the IRS targeting scandal, which is bigger than Watergate?

Yesterday, Judicial Watch released a new batch of IRS documents that showed “extensive pressure on the IRS by Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) to shut down conservative leaning organizations.”

According to an analysis from the Media Research Center, ABC, CBS, and NBC responded with exactly ZERO seconds of network news coverage.

The released documents also revealed the IRS’s handling of the Tea Party applications was directed out of the agency’s DC headquarters, contrary to initial claims that blamed low-level officials in Cincinnati.

    There was once upon a time where they were called the BIG THREE but now they hardly show up on people's radar with the advent of FOX NEWS and AM Radio/Limbaugh. They don't report the news because they have an agenda that FDR and HOOVER would be proud of. Given all that, they will never report any scandal that is started by the left.

    Never they will always cover for a Democrat no matter how corrupt he is.

    A good example of this was during the Lewinsky scandal the media defended Clinton until it was proven he had lied then they marveled at how well he lied and hoped he would do it again!

    First of all, this is just one more of those 'scandals' the Republicans are investigating over and over until they get the results they want. So any new evidence is reasonably seen as a little suspicious.

    Secondly, it's pretty clear the Republicans have chosen a strategy of total unwavering opposition, meaning that they respond to EVERYTHING Obama does with the same predictable fake outrage. One of the problems with this strategy is: If Obama really did do something outrageous, how would we know?
