Washington Post writer thinks Rep. Steve King's IRS comments are "striking," but his paper has ignored them

In a "Post Politics Hour" chat this morning, Washington Post writer Ben Pershing reacted to Iowa Rep. Steve King's recent comments that conservatives should "implode" IRS offices:

I don't think Congress could or would censure King for something he said at a political rally, but I agree with you that his comments and others like them probably deserve more attention from the media. They are striking remarks.

Yet, over 28 hours after Talking Points Memo reported King's remarks, the Post hasn't written any stories on the comments. But don't worry. The Post did spend seven paragraphs on singer Shakira's visit to Washington.
