Comey Compares The Media To Hungry ‘Seagulls At The Beach’

Former FBI director James Comey revealed in his testimony before Congress Thursday that he shared a memo detailing a meeting with President Donald Trump to a friend in hopes that the friend would give the memo to the press. 

When describing his decision to the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey also revealed how he sees the media. He said that he gave the memo to a friend ? later confirmed to be Columbia law professor Daniel Richman ? rather than providing it to reporters himself, because he feared that offering it up directly would be like ?feeding seagulls at the beach.? 

?I was worried. The media was camping at the end of my driveway at that point, and I was actually going out of town with my wife to hide, and I worried that it would be like feeding seagulls at the beach,? he said.

While it?s not the most flattering comparison, a lot of people ? including many journalists/seagulls themselves ? had to admit it?s actually pretty apt.
