CBS News’ Bob Schieffer interviewed Rep. Elijah Cummings on Face the Nation this morning. New information suggests that, upon request from some Democrats, Lois Lerner worked to provide Cummings, the ranking Dem on the House Oversight Committee, with information regarding the targeted conservative group True the Vote.
You might think this potential bombshell would have been worthy of a question or two, but Schieffer apparently did not, as Newsbusters noted:

The topic of Cummings’ relationship with Lois Lerner wasn’t worth a single mention?
Face the Nation has Elijah Cummings on this morning and neglect to ask him even one question on this –> http://t.co/rUC5POaavJ

How very unsurprising.
@newsbusters No surprise there.

@rorycooper unbelievable (It's believable. That's more of a word to express my outrage)

Schieffer did of course find the time to ask Cummings this:
Schieffer: "Are Republicans against equal pay for women and is that going to be a good political issue in these coming mid-term elections?"

Gee, what answers do you think Cummings gave?
