NBC, ABC Ignore IRS Employees Evading Taxes and Getting Promoted


<p><em>More in the <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-drennen/2015/05/07/nbc-abc-ignore-irs…; target="_blank">cross-post</a> on the MRC&#39;s NewsBusters blog. </em></p>

<p>On Thursday, <em>CBS This Morning</em> offered a scant 26 seconds on a <a href="http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2015/05/06/watchdog-most-tax-violators-at…; target="_blank"><em>Wall Street Journal</em> story</a> about nearly 1,600 IRS employees having evaded taxes over a ten-year period, with co-host Norah O&#39;Donnell noting: <strong>&quot;Workers improperly claimed dependents, repeatedly failed to file timely tax returns, and claimed a tax credit for first-time home buyers when the IRS worker didn&#39;t buy a house. Most of the IRS employees were not fired. Some received promotions, raises, and even bonuses.&quot;</strong></p>

<p>Neither NBC&#39;s <em>Today</em> nor ABC&#39;s <em>Good Morning America</em> made any mention of the latest scandal to plague the agency.</p>
