MSNBC Mocks NY Times, Wash Post for Lack of IRS Coverage

Scarborough: ‘This is a scam’

Morning Joe’s Joe Scarborough slammed the New York Times Tuesday for running a story about another possible Chris Christie bridge scandal and choosing not to run a front page story on the latest IRS targeting scandal developments.

"Is it possible that the New York Times and Washington Post are not putting on the front page of their newspapers the fact that an internal investigation has been launched against the IRS on the most shady behavior, and yet they put the Pulaski sky bridge whatever on page A-1?" Scarborough asked. "This is garbage."

Panelist Nicolle Wallace jokingly searched for IRS coverage and found it located on A19 of the Times.

This led Scarborough to erupt even further, "This is why conservatives don’t trust national newspapers. It’s why they don’t trust broadcast news. There’s a double standard and you can see it on every broadcast. You can see it on the front page of every major newspaper. This is why we don’t trust the national news outlets, because they are so biased and slanted. It’s not the news that they run, even though this is a joke of a story to put on the front page here. It’s the stories they don’t run. It’s the omissions, the acts of omissions when Democrats are in power. It’s stunning."
