CBS News Avoids Lerner's not Wanting to Incriminate Herself at IRS
CBS-TV Nightly News managers:
Tonight's CBS News begins with Ms. Lerner denying she did anything wrong at IRS. Fine. But you never show her stating that she declined to answer any further questions on the grounds that that may incriminate her. Instead, you state that she took the 5th. Many Americans have no idea what the 5th Amendment is. She is afraid of incriminating herself! One can assume there was criminal activity at IRS. And the targeting of those presumed to be enemies of Obama by the bullying Administration is criminal. It is Obama' enemies list, and the IRS bullies who enforce the punishments.
Your pro-Democratic news reports, your interfering with your own reporter's investigation of Benghazi, your refusal to stand up for the 1st Amendment against the Obama Administration's efforts to curb whistle-blowers, -- all this adds up to a totally biased newscast. I thought it might change when Curry(spell?) left (I never watched during her anchorage). Unfortunately, you seem back in the Obama fold.
