Media making the Comey - - Hoover connection

I was complaining this weekend that the national media was displaying its J. Edgar Hoover amnesia:

There sure were a lot of reporters and talking heads showing off their short memories today about FBI directors and political interference and influence. Everyone forget this guy?

The New York Times begins the national conversation's critical update:
Somewhere, tearing wings off flies in a dark star chamber in the sky, J. Edgar Hoover is smiling. The use of secret information to wound public figures was one of his favorite sports.
