London terror and the Islam elephant in the room

President Donald Trump, reacting to the Wednesday terror attack in London by the Houses of Parliament, called it "big news," but withheld further comment, pending more information.

Comey: Media's 'wrong' a lot -- but correcting is not FBI job

- The Washington Times

James Comey, FBI director, said a mouthful about the media during congressional testimony about Russia earlier this week, making clear it wasn't his agency's job to correct the press on printed or published errors -- but also saying bluntly: Boy, they make a lot.
