George Will: Obama acts bored with IRS scandal because he knows media’s ignoring it

george-will-foxPulitzer Prize-winning columnist George Will asserted Monday that President Obama has grown bored with the notion of an IRS scandal because he knows the media has his back.

In his much talked about Super Bowl pre-game interview on Fox News, the president rejected any charges that the IRS unfairly targeted conservative groups for additional scrutiny.

“That’s not what happened,” Obama told host Bill O’Reilly.

Despite an ongoing FBI investigation, Obama declared there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” at the agency.

In an appearance Monday on Fox News, Will noted that scandals are “a dime a dozen in this town,” but said the alleged IRS scandal is among the “three major scandals in the last forty years,” Newsbusters reported.

“Three big ones regarding the distortion and abuse of institutions: Watergate, Iran-Contra and the IRS,” Will told “Special Report” host Bret Baier. “The first two were ravenously covered by the media; they were Republican Presidents’ problems. This is not being pursued and the President knows that.”

“Hence, his sense of weariness and boredom as he discussed this with Bill O’Reilly,” he concluded.
