Bob Woodward: 'Lots of Unanswered Questions' on IRS

By    |   Sunday, 26 October 2014 07:11 PM

Legendary Watergate reporter Bob Woodward says there are "lots of unanswered questions" in the IRS targeting scandal, and if he were a young reporter he'd take former reporting partner Carl Bernstein to Cincinnati to start interviewing people.

"Now, there's been political spin put on it by lots of people, including Fox News, including the White House. Question is: What are the facts? What really happened?" Woodward said in an interview aired Sunday on Fox News Channel's "MediaBuzz."

Woodward admitted there has been "a lot of fact-based reporting," including from reporters at Fox News, but added, "there's been a lot of political spin on all sides on this" including Fox News hosts and the White House.

The IRS is accused of targeting conservative groups during the 2010 election cycle by delaying indefinitely their requests for tax-exempt status. Those delays, the groups say, prevented from participating in the presidential election.

A federal judge this month dismissed a lawsuit filed against several of the tea party groups who say they were targeted. U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton said he was not ruling on the merits, but dismissed the cases because the IRS had addressed the complaints, making the case moot.
