Inside the NFL's non-profit tax-exempt status

The NFL is struggling with scandal after scandal concerning domestic violence, brain damage from concussions of players, even questions about its drug testing policy, but did you also know that the league made $10.5 billion in 2013 and is run by a front office that is getting a pretty big gift from U.S. taxpayers. The National football League is a non-profit. Which means, while the teams pay taxes, the league does not.
You may be asking why? CNN's Drew Griffin is keeping them honest.

Keeping Them Honest: Disgraced veterans charity is still in business

The state of California cracked down on the charity Help Hospitalized Veterans, after finding it spending hundreds of thousands of dollars that should have been going to vets, on big time salaries and golf club memberships. That got the charity banned from VA hospitals. However,  Help Hospitalized Veterans is still in business, just under new management. The current CEO is a disgraced former VA administrator with ethics issues of her own. Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin is Keeping Them Honest and describes the situation by saying "this is where the poor management at the VA… and very bad veteran charities intersect."

Keeping Them Honest: What did President Obama mean when he called ISIS a "JV Team"

President Obama is preparing for a major speech laying out his plan for dealing with ISIS. A sports analogy he used to describe the terror group during an interview with the New Yorker's David Remnick back in January that is raising serious questions today.

"The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn't make them Kobe Bryant…"

Anderson looked at the fallout from that comment and discussed it with David Remnick.
