Elijah Cummings declines Fox News; appears on ‘Face the Nation’ to zero IRS questions

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s ranking Democratic member got caught in an apparent lie last week on his role in the IRS scandal. Yet when he appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday, host Bob Schieffer asked the congressman “not one question” on the incident.

U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., was invited to appear on “The Kelly File” last week to explain the emails between his staff and former IRS supervisor Lois Lerner in which they appear to be working in concert to target the conservative Texas-based organization True the Vote.

Cummings declined to appear on the Fox News show, but did appear on the CBS Sunday news program.

“Cleta, that’s unbelievable,” Fox News host Megyn Kelly said to True the Vote’s counsel, Cleta Mitchell, “Not one. It’s not like Elijah Cummings has been in the news for a lot of things over the past week. I mean, not one question.”

Gee, could there really be something to this media bias people are talking about?
