The Latest Lie: IRS Targeted Conservatives
"The corporate media is blasting out the story that the IRS "targeted conservative groups." Some in the media say there was "IRS harassment of conservative groups." Some of the media are going so far as claiming that conservative groups were "audited."... This story that is being repeated and treated as "true" is just not what happened at all.

The IRS Scandal Is a Supreme Court Scandal
Karl Rove is the real poster boy for the so-called IRS (Internal Revenue Service) "scandal" of taking a closer look at applications by political organizations seeking a 501(c)(4) tax status that not only makes them tax exempt but protects their donors with anonymity... That 501(c)(4) is one sweet deal: not only do these organizations get untraceable, tax-free money laundering for their political activities, they get a taxpayer subsidy to do it...

Chronic back pain cured by antibiotics
(NaturalNews) The latest science reveals that antibiotics may serve a legitimate and defining purpose in medicine after all, but probably not in the way you might think.

The Right's 'Scandal' Funhouse Mirror
Robert Parry: Official Washington is captivated by the image of Obama "scandals," including Benghazi talking points and extra IRS questions posed to Tea Party groups, but journalists are peering into the Right's funhouse mirror which for decades has made big scandals small and small scandals big...
