No, not really. The IRS "scandal" has been brewing since BEFORE Benghazi so I think the unholy trinity of AP, Benghazi and IRS are flukes, and never in a hundred years will there be a perfect storm like this one. In fact I would be willing to state there will be no more scandals, as three is the legal limit.
Domino effect at work, also, perhaps. Government erred big time by the whomping full-scale invasion of the mail and communications records etc of a major news bureau -- and now they are all in an uproar, and rightly. Gloves are off, now, because that kind of invasion will dry up future news sources and endanger past informants. Stupid stupid move by the gov., but typical these days. True investigative journalists may have trouble now in getting whistleblowers to talk to them for a while, but whatever they find I don't think there will be as much mercy given from the media as they've shown in the past. If the facts can be obtained, I doubt the news media will "soft pedal" much at gov. request, for a while. I'd say to expect more dirty laundry.

No. We are just finding out about more corruption and its building daily these past weeks. Also the Assoc Press phone lines breached! The press that protected the president is under attack as well. Benghazigate is not over. A trifecta of scandals. Jay Carney cant defend these outrageous events. The press is turning against the Whitehouse now. They have been betrayed. The New York Times is probably a victim as well. Jay Carney attacked them yesterday when asked about all these scandals! And nobody knows anything. Laughable and not believable. And why did Harry Reid know so much about Mitt Romneys tax records? The IRS of course. The Whitehouse knew about this during the campaign as well.
