If anyone wasn't sure what excuses they were going to come up with on Fox to keep beating the IRS scandal drums over these tea partiers and their tax exempt status that they shouldn't be qualifying for in the first place, here's your latest example.

We've already seen them just ignore that Rep. Elijah Cummings made good on his threat to release all of the transcripts of the interviews that were conducted by Rep. Darrell Issa and his committee. They're still pushing the already debunked story about the IRS head and the White House visitor records.

And this Saturday on Fox's The Journal Editorial Report, contributor James Freeman gave us the latest excuse to keep pushing the drummed up "scandal" -- the FBI hasn't been interviewing any "tea party people."

Never mind that the screening manager for the IRS already explained what happened during his interviews. And never mind that a bunch of these people already testified before Congress, and probably perjured themselves the little bit I watched of it. Someone had better talk to them right away so we can get to the bottom of this whole matter.

Can you help us out?
