WND's Unruh Parrots Right-Wing Attacks
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Bob Unruh does a fine job of stenography in an Aug. 7 WorldNetDaily article:

House Republicans suspect election officials joined with the Internal Revenue Service in a strategy that curbed the effectiveness of conservative organizations in the 2012 election.

The allegations were revealed in a letter from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Report, which has been holding hearings and seeking evidence about the extent of the IRS targeting of conservative and Christian organizations.


It cites as an example a Feb. 3, 2009, email from William Powers, an FEC official in the Office of the General Counsel, to Lois Lerner, then-director of the IRS Exempt Organizations Division, seeking information about the American Issues Project and the American Future Fund.

Powers asked about the status of the groups’ applications for tax-exempt status and the IRS review process. He referenced prior conversations with Lerner regarding American Future Fund.

Since Uhruh is serving as a right-wing stenography, you won't learn that the IRS has denied that any confidential information was exchanged or -- more importantly -- House Republicans have provided no evidence of confidential information being exchanged.

And Unruh is certainly not going to tell you that he's offering nothing but a suggestion of wrongdoing from selectively leaked emails from partisan sources that don't actually establish any malfeasance.
