    Never mind, he deleted the post.

    There is another 2 minutes of fact checking. It is not hard., The first thing you have to do is stop believing everything you want to be true and actually look.
    Again from the OP:

    ABC and NBC have failed to cover the story as of Monday June 16, and only CBS This Morning reported on the emails on Monday but their evening news program ignoring the IRS alongside ABC's World News with Diane Sawyer and NBC Nightly News.



    Unless there is something missing, your links aren't to broadcasts on their evening news programs prior to June 16, which is what the OP was talking about.

    He's a she, and she missed the links, but she caught her mistake and made a new post.

    Let me quote again from the source article:

    ABC and NBC have failed to cover the story as of Monday June 16
    AS you can see, they in fact have.

    The link isn't about their websites. You should've read it before you tried to refute it, that way, you know what you're trying to refute.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    No worries on the gender mistake. Happens to me all the time. Golen Contrarian still calls me "guy".

    Did Diane Sawyer and NBC Nightly News report on it before June 16? That's exactly the 2 shows mentioned in the OP. Unless your links contain footage from either show before June 16, then the OP is correct.

    Well, except for your articles headline and story. Both specifically state that ABC and NBC did not cover it, when in fact they did. I know, fact checking is hard, but it really helps you not make stupid mistakes like this.

    Did Diane Sawyer and/or NBC Nightly News, the 2 broadcasts specifically mentioned in the OP, cover it before June 16 or not?

    No stupid mistake unless you have clips from either show before June 16 proving the OP wrong.

    Is Diane Sawyer and/or NBC Nightly News all that makes up NBC news and ABC news?

    How much additional corroboration is required?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
