NYT buries story on IRS bullying conservatives; Flashback: Editorial board applauded witch hunt in 2012

The IRS apologized Friday for singling out conservative groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names for audits of their applications for tax-exempt status. Translation: We’re sorry we got caught.

Want to read about that in the New York Times before lining your bird cage? Try page A11.

If you look really hard, you can find a below-the-fold teaser on the front page.

It’s also buried on the New York Times website.

Reminder: The Fishwrap of Record squeed with delight last year and patted the IRS on the back for a job well done.

Exit question:

Will the editorial be retracted? We won’t hold our breath.
