Tell NBC News: Correcting Republican lies is part of your job

Chuck Todd’s assertion that correcting Republican lies isn’t his job is factually incorrect and counter to the purpose of journalism. Hold Chuck Todd accountable by issuing a public apology for his outrageous statement and ensure that all NBC News/MSNBC journalists know that correcting political misinformation and lies is part of their job description.

''Progressive" and "Occupy" groups targeted by IRS!

So, in all the fury over the so-called scandal of the IRS targeting "Tea Party" groups for closer scrutiny, why didn't they also mention that the:

lists used by screeners to pick groups for close examination also included the terms "Israel," ''Progressive" and "Occupy."

DemocracyNow! - Did Public Television Commit Self-Censorship to Appease Billionaire Funder David Koch?

Well, it’s just like how they operate in our electoral system. They
give a lot of money. They don’t have to specify their demands. The
politicians know what their agenda is, and they serve that agenda of the
Koch brothers. And the same thing goes with public television,
apparently. They made their contributions, and the programmers pay
attention, and they make their programming decisions based on that. It’s
really sad, but I think Carl is right, we just need to advocate for
more public moneys for public television.

The Last Word: The Republican 'ignorance-fueled war' on the IRS

Alex Wagner:  Lawrence, if ineptitude was a crime, John Boehner would have a life sentence, right?  What has happened?  From what I've read, from the investigations in the L.A. Times and New York Times, this was a bunch of overwhelmed civil servants in an office in Cincinnati.  They were getting 70,000 applications a year, and there were 200 of them.  They were inundated.  They were doing what the New York Times describes as triage to deal with this, and maybe their form of triage was bad, and they didn't think about the political optics, they didn't think of the ramifications, but at the end of the day, no one has proved any malice.  There is no crime here.

Chris Hayes:  We should be really clear here, Richard Nixon sat in the White House and literally ordered audits of political enemies, and that was a massive
abuse of power.
