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.

    Nothing more appropriate than having Rover piss on those that piss all over both the truth and their fellow Americans.

      Were it in “virtual print paper form” we would line a birdcage with it. Wrap dead fish in it. Packing material to move the Marxist elements out of our Whitehouse…and

    Obama on White Folks’ Greed…
    Taken from his book and in his own words: “Dreams From My Father” page 158 of 235 PDF Form:
    “The painting depicts a harpist,” Reverend Wright explained,
    “a woman who at first glance appears to be sitting atop a great mountain.
    Until you take a closer look and see that the woman is bruised and bloodied,
    dressed in tattered rags, the harp reduced to a single frayed string.
    Your eye is then drawn down to the scene below, down to the valley below,
    where everywhere are the ravages of famine, the drumbeat of war,
    a world groaning under strife and deprivation.
    “It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day
    than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year,
    where white folks’ greed runs a world in need,
    apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…
    That’s the world! On which hope sits!”
    —The Moral to Part of Obama’s Autobiographical Story–
    White Folks Greed Made The Whole World Needy!—-

    The New York TImes approves of this aggressive and lawless White House.

    This is the “paper” that still proudly displays Walter Duranty’s picture along with other Times reporters who have been awarded the Pulitzer Prize. I would expect nothing less than dishonest reporting from the fishwrap of record.

    • MurphTacular

      FYI: Duranty won the Pulitzer BEFORE he regrettably discounted the USSR’s famine. If you win the national title in basketball, then get caught cheating, but not with the players who won it all for you, you get to keep the trophy. ((The trivial things this board worries about))
      And there’s this statement from the NYT in 2003 that goes along way toward addressing your concerns, SJ.

      • Mark81150

        That’s a crock.. he was lying about the Soviet Union well before that, from YOUR link..

        ————-

        “Duranty, one of the most famous correspondents of his day, won the prize for 13
        articles written in 1931 analyzing the Soviet Union under Stalin. Times correspondents
        and others have since largely discredited his coverage.”

        ————————-

        But they’ll keep the prize anyway.. with the excuse..

        “The Pulitzer board has twice declined to withdraw the award, most recently in November
        2003, finding “no clear and convincing evidence of deliberate deception” in the
        1931 reporting that won the prize (see Pulitzer Board statement), and The Times does not have
        the award in its possession.”

        —————————————

        another crock.. the Pulitzer committee said in effect, yes it was all bullschit,.. but we can’t prove he didn’t believe it.. Hell.. that let’s Peter Arnet from his Iraqi propaganda right off the hook too.. and his fake nerve gas scandal against the US..

        so that is the slimes standard?

        We can print complete BS, but even after the truth comes out, if said hack actually believed it.. well then we’ll still keep any awards and honors granted by the Pulitzer committee… and keep his plague up with all our heroes…

        and the Ukrainian dead’s families can just go F themselves..

        Because we’re the PAPER OF RECORD you peasants.. we never are held to a standard of integrity like we demand of others..

    Love how Twitchy distorts even this: The Bangladeshi story they ran on the front page was indeed from Day 17. The reason? Someone was miraculously found alive, but NOTHING can be as interesting as ‘alleged persecution’ of patriots and Tea Party types, eh? Holy Sheebus.

      Remind us again about how Kewl the Muslim sugar trade was during the crusades, Murph…

        Hey, it WAS tangentially relevant when I brought it up, several weeks ago, your continued “interest” in same, however is still just as puzzling …

          No, it wasn’t.

          Just showing the hypocrisy of you taking Twitchy to task over something you’ve done yourself.

          • MurphTacular

            Actually, I believe its relevance did exist. I think we were generally assessing interactions between Islam and the West, and we’d wandered into The Crusades – so to speak – and I mentioned that one of the byproducts THAT mess was sugar’s introduction to Western Europe. And I don’t remember faulting anyone on Twitchy for talking about Islam and its role in introducing sugar to the West. LOL.

            As yet ANOTHER attempt to derail the discussion, yes.

            I thought of this conversation Sunday when former Sec. of Defense Bob Gates mentioned the wacky boundaries drawn by Europe after World War I as being partly responsible for the never-ending chaos in MENA. I’ve also been reading how a lot of tensions are based on false readings of Islam popular in tribal areas of Pakistan/Afghanistan and how much of the tension in those areas isn’t as much religious as it is distrust between rural areas on the ‘periphery’ of society with the capital/metro areas.

      ——————

      They ADMITTED IT… but nothing can be LESS interesting to a liberal than a left wing presidents administration engaging in persecuting people on an enemies list huh?…..

      Your side threw Nixon in our face for decades, that persecution through the governments agencies was a crime against ALL Americans.. and it was..

      now, that Obama’s administration is caught red handed, with Jewish groups the next to step up..

      WHERE THE F*** is the left’s outrage now?

      at the fact conservative media is reporting it..you can’t make this up… you’re annoyed that we think WH abuses against Americans’ is more important than a foreign industrial accident with a minor human interest story 17 days into it..

      but page 11 for a Nixionian power abuse is too vivid for you?

      The left is either the most dogmatic fanatical true believers on earth, or the most cynical abusers of reason ever to grace the wilderness.

      even when faced with an open admission of wrong doing..

      you can’t whine about it being a subject of interest enough..

        I hope it gets thoroughly vetted and investigated, but I’m not going to flip out about where it gets covered on a daily basis. Where did the WaPo put it Saturday/Sunday? Water finds its own level …

      This should scare you — what the IRS has admittedly done — *regardless* of you political affiliation! Who do you think the guards’ dogs will turn on once the dissidents are no longer an issue?

      Seriously!

      And WRT you stance on ‘distortion’, the article about the lady in Bangladesh was but one of the articles that received better coverage.
