FAIR TV: The IRS & Obama’s Scandal Trifecta, Matthews Praises Reagan, Newseum Scandal

What should we make of the so-called “trifecta” of scandals hitting the Obama White House? And what questions should we ask about the IRS/Tea Party story?

Also this week: Chris Matthews wants Obama to take charge–just like the union-busting Ronald Reagan. And the Newseum decides two Palestinian journalists shouldn’t be considered part of their tribute to journalists who died reporting the news.
