The pundits on Fox News have made a point of arguing that the mainstream media has ignored congressional investigations into President Barack Obama’s IRS.
The next Watergate or Iran-Contra affair is right under the media’s disinterested nose, they say.
Fox News political commentator and syndicated columnist George Will has raised this point for almost a year and brought it up again on last week’s Fox News Sunday.
Our partners at PunditFact decided to dig into the controversy. They found Will's comments too open to interpretation to fact-check, but they did publish a primer on the situation that will allow readers to draw their own conclusions. Read their story at PunditFact.com.
