Why has the tough media — especially mainstream media — allowed James Comey, the former FBI director, to get away with avoiding the tough questions about his inappropriate and possibly unethical conduct of the Hillary Clinton emails investigation? Comey has also been downright evasive and, in one major respect, dishonest — and yet, the mainstream media for some reason doesn’t get tough and call him at it.
