    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Imo, it's newsworthy. That being said, many people don't agree with me, and don't care about it, because it's not they who have been affected negatively.

    Absolutely. Delay and obstruct. No justice here.

    Newsworthy that 2 major networks are ignoring it? Yes.

    Lawmakers: IRS Lost More Emails in Tea Party Probe - ABC News

    Lost IRS Emails Irk McConnell - NBC News

    There is a reason you should not believe MRC any more than you should Media Matters. It took me all of 2 minutes to fact check and find the story is false.

    You should have added another minute and noticed that the link in the OP was dated June 16 and says this in the body:

    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

    Your links were from the 17th.

    So you are saying his story is out of date already? Of course, it might also have to do with linking first search result. Here, for example, is the 14th: IRS Says It Lost Lois Lerner Emails in Tea Party Probe - NBC News, or from the 13th: Lawmakers Fume Over Lost Emails in IRS Probe - ABC News

    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.
