What do you think?

I think that Bookworm is on to something here. Excerpt:

The absolute worst scandal thatís emerged lately, and the worst administration scandal in American history is the IRS scandal. Why? Because you, the People, became the targets of a comprehensive federal government effort to stifle dissent, one made using the governmentís overwhelming and disproportionate policing and taxing powers.

All of the other scandals, going back to Andrew Johnsonís post-Civil War scandals, Warren G. Hardingís 1920s Teapot Dome scandal, Nixonís Watergate, Reaganís Iran-Contra, and Clintonís Oval Office sexcapades have actually been narrowly focused acts of cronyism, garden-variety political chicanery, or personal failings. Itís been insider stuff.

The IRS scandal, by contrast, is a direct attack on the American people.

Which is why the media so studiously avoids this scandal. They need to either do their job or die in a fire.
