HEAR­INGS AS SPEC­TA­CLE

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Mul­ti­ple news or­ga­ni­za­tions de­scribed FBI agent Peter Str­zok’s hear­ing be­fore Congress on Thurs­day as “chaos.” But there’s op­por­tu­nity in such fare. Most news out­lets in­cluded noisy video of the pro­ceed­ings to push their own cov­er­age: “See Str­zok hit back at Gowdy,” said CNN in a pub­lic ad­vi­sory. In the mean­time, a brief re­view of head­lines:

“FBI agent’s con­gres­sional hear­ing de­scends into chaos” (The Daily Beast); “Str­zok hear­ing chaos: House chair threat­ens to hold FBI agent in con­tempt” (Ya­hoo News); “Peter Str­zok hear­ing de­scends into chaos af­ter first ques­tion” (RealClear Pol­i­tics); “Chaos erupts dur­ing Con­gres­sional tes­ti­mony” (CBN News); “Peter Str­zok an­grily re­jects charges of bias at chaotic hear­ing” (The As­so­ci­ated Press); “Fire­works at Str­zok hear­ing as GOP reps fume at anti-Trump FBI agent, threaten con­tempt” (Fox News).

There are more hear­ings to come of course. Mean­while, it’s not a bad idea to peek at real-time ac­tiv­i­ties of the FBI, which in­clude bust­ing a GI Bill fraud scheme this week. The work goes on. Find the agency at FBI.gov.

AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

The push is on by cen­trist Democrats who are con­vinced they can woo the huge pop­u­la­tion of mod­er­ate and un­de­cided vot­ers to their side.
