ABC, NBC Continue to Ignore IRS Claim That It Lost 2 Years of Lois Lerner Emails

Last Friday, the Internal Revenue Service announced that it had lost approximately two years of emails from former employee Lois Lerner. 

Despite the damning new revelations in the IRS scandal, 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.

As Kyle Drennen of NewsBusters noted, "Neither NBC's Today nor ABC's Good Morning America bothered to cover the shocking development. However, both broadcasts did manage to find time for full reports on Britain's baby Prince George learning to walk.” 

Rather than continue with its IRS coverage on Monday evening, CBS Evening News instead found time to do a full report on Starbucks helping its employees pay for college. ABC’s World News with Diane Sawyer, gave a full report for Alex Trebek setting the world record for longest game show host and NBC Nightly News found time once again to mention that Britain’s Prince George is learning to walk.
