I can't speak to the motivations of the press corp. The media love of the current administration has been widely panned for years I doubt this will change it much.
The "acting head" of the IRS has resigned slightly ahead of schedule:
An official close to Miller told Fox News, shortly after Obama's brief announcement, that the IRS chief was "set to resign the position of acting commission as of early June." He was planning to leave the IRS entirely a "couple of months later, regardless of the current controversy," the source said.

Which brings up another issue of these "acting heads of everything". Without conflating it may point to the usefulness of some over sight of the executive branch leadership. Regardless this is a fairly meaningless gesture and indicates no action being taken to reduce the unethical (possibly illegal) activity.
The blogosphere is lit up with this rather interesting note:
California congressman David Nunes made the claim yesterday that the Justice Department wiretapped telephones in the House of Representative's Cloak Room
Again, there is no indication yet that these were "taps" just phone records. However, it follows perfectly that since politicians and their people speak to the media all the time that there would be records showing this contact. It is unclear whether he meant that House records were taken or the AP records included conversations with the House.
Correlating the data on the taps to various legislation on the floor this has the potential to lead all kinds of places.
