Congressional testimony by former FBI Director James Comey Thursday revealed much of what the media got wrong about President Trump and the Russia investigation. The public learned that Trump himself—as he had indicated—was not under investigation, that he had every right to fire an FBI director he did not like, and that Comey presented no evidence that Trump engaged in obstruction of justice or committed an impeachable offense.
In many ways, the frenzy about Trump and Russia says a lot more about media hostility toward Trump than it does about Trump’s actions.

While overt media hostility is outrageous, reporting laced with insidious bias is much more misleading and dangerous.
