    Media Matters is a politcal shill, blatant and they crap out Dem talking points and little else.

    Whether Fox pushes that crap or not, Im not using it as a source so you can stop setting up your strawman of "FOX BAD RAWR!"

    Media Matters is not a legitimate source to anyone wanting to get at whats going on, its what you read to feed your cognitive dissonance. Now then if you could return to the topic at hand which clearly is NOT Fox News, that would be super.

    I would guess anyone reporting on the investigation would report on Issa's finding and on the full release and not draw conclusions but let readers decide by excerpting passgaes that support both positions.....but Im betting that didnt happen. Because blood in the water sells, Pete.

    Start reading:
    Everything you need to know about the IRS scandal in one FAQ

    Note:

    AND

    Rich information material with links to side stories enlarging on the details of whats known. As I said Im tired of your willful lack of knowledge and tossing up questions Im almost positive you already know the answers to.
    Looking at your post again: Do realize that targeting and scrutinizing are two separate things. .Targeting should not happen, but scrutinizing is what the IRS does to determine if a group is qualified. So, your conflating the two is not relevant.

    Well they certainly "scrutinized" any conservative leaning grouips for a very long time, including asking them what they read and who their friends were. Too bad they didn't "scrutinize" the borders as closely, or terrorist warnings.

    You're a dollar short and a day late. It's been leaked that a conservative republican was behind the entire IRS operation, apparently in conjunction with Issa.

    It's looking pretty bad for conservatives.

    I did not think it possible that you could lose more credibility.

    I was wrong.

    And what proof do you have he was a republican? because Cummings says so? why would any one want to believe Cummings? he already lied about what that so called republican said so why should we believe Cummings when he says he is a republican?

    this is what Cummings claimed the manerger said

    "This Republican manager said there was no White House involvement, no political involvement, none of that. He made the decision doing the best he could to have some kind of consistency."

    and this is actually what the manager said

    The IRS manager, who was not named by the committee, said, “I am not aware of that,” when asked directly about a political bias or political motivations behind the targeting of conservative groups. And he said he had “no reason to believe” that the White House was involved in the decision to target conservatives.

    big difference between “I am not aware of that,”“no reason to believe” and "there was no White House involvement, no political involvement"

    so if Cumming will lie about what the so called conservative said he will lie about him being a conservative

    Yeah! That must be it, Cummings is lying!

    This must be getting embarrassing for some people now. Besides being a liar he's uppity too!

    independents are far more racist, some 55% recall watergate
