Nearly 200 conservative and Tea Party leaders are demanding that major news media outlets end their virtual blackout on the IRS targeting scandal.
Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, is spear-heading the move, along with conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, and other prominent conservatives.
"The liberal media's refusal to cover the IRS scandal -- more than the NSA scandal, more than DOJ's surveillance of journalists, more even than the tragic loss of life in Benghazi -- cuts to the very heart of their corruption," they said in a joint statement released July 25.
"No fair, objective journalist can look at the facts of this flagrant abuse of power and not conclude that it is a massive political scandal deserving of constant, merciless scrutiny," they said.
How much coverage have the liberal nightly newscasts given to the IRS story? Tim Graham, director of Media Analysis at the Media Research Council, addressed that question and more on CBN News Channel Morning News, July 31.
