"Treasury Knew of I.R.S. Inquiry in 2012, Official Says."
"The Treasury Departments inspector general told senior Treasury officials in June 2012 he was auditing the Internal Revenue Services screening of politically active organizations seeking tax exemptions, disclosing for the first time on Friday that Obama administration officials were aware of the matter during the presidential campaign year."
After they "fixed" it:
"Republicans Expand I.R.S. Inquiry, With Eye on White House"
WASHINGTON "Congressional Republicans, not resting with the Internal Revenue Service scandal, are moving to broaden the matter to an array of tax malfeasances and intimidation tactics they hope will ensnare the White House."
Yes, FR is indispensable. :)
Reminds me of an apocryphal story told me by an old high school teacher. According to him, there was a series of ten races involving an American car and a Soviet-made car. The American car won 8 out of the ten races and the Soviet won two.
The American media reproted the races, as noted in the paragraph above. The Soviet media reported that the Soviets placed first in two races and second in eight while the Americans were last in eight races and second last in two.
Perhaps the NYT editor had worked for Soviet media in the past?
Whenever an article starts with a sentence like that edited one, there’s no use reading the rest of the article because you know it’s going to be an Obama apologetic.
