Episode 46: Conservative Targeting at the EPA, Liberal Groups (Not) Targeted at the IRS, and Cable News Scandal Coverage
How could conservative groups be targeted for unfair treatment at the Environmental Protection Agency? I couldn’t quite understand that when I first heard of it, but indeed the EPA was able to do just that.
Liberals have been lifted by the news that groups with the words “progressive” or “occupy” were also targeted at the IRS. However, the level of scrutiny they received was an order of magnitude easier than it was for conservative groups. Listen in to see…er…hear the difference.
With all the scandals going on these days, the cable news networks have seen some changes in their viewership numbers. But for one network, that’s not good news. Care to guess which one?
