As Twitchy told you earlier, the IRS’ website went down in spectacular fashion. On Tax Day, of course. They deserve every kick and punch of the beating that they’re getting. But Politico seems to think people are being too hard on them. Well, not people, per se … just Republicans:
IRS filing system crashed on last day of tax season, and some Republicans jumped on the glitch as an example of incompetence at the agency https://t.co/we1J4s5sCm pic.twitter.com/FwMmgnX1nX

But they can’t help it! If the IRS’ technological failure can’t be blamed directly on Republicans, we’ve still gotta make them out to be the bad guys. That’s how this works, after all.
They didn’t jump they merely pointed out facts.

pounce? Our media is absolute garbage. So one sided.

Of course the story is "Republicans pounce" and not our incompetent government. #Journalism

The story of course being those nasty Republicans exploiting facts to accurately portray something, rather than the facts that accurately portray something

Right. The story isn’t that the IRS filing system crashed on the most important tax day of the year, its how Republicans reacted to the story. You people are hacks.
