Not outrageous

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - OPINION -

Here’s a ques­tion for Don­ald Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer, who, at the pres­i­dent-elect’s first news con­fer­ence in six months, com­plained that it was “outrageous” and “highly ir­re­spon­si­ble” for Buz­zfeed.com to print un­ver­i­fied and sala­cious re­ports about his boss just days be­fore he will take the oath of of­fice: How is this ac­tion any less outrageous or highly ir­re­spon­si­ble than FBI Di­rec­tor James Comey’s de­ci­sion to pub­licly spec­u­late that there might be more to Hil­lary Clin­ton’s emails on An­thony Weiner’s com­puter (there weren’t any) just days be­fore the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion?
