> Monica Depression
> By Scott Shuger
> The [Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal] story was first broken by late
> editions of yesterday's WP and LAT. ("Today's Papers" was castigated
> by numerous readers for having poor news judgment, or worse, a
> pro-Clinton desire to suppress news. The truth is much simpler: the
> story was held out of the early editions of the papers this column is
> written from.) Today, the Post slops the most at the trough, with nine
> different Monica missives.
> This scandal makes blatant the degree to which the mainstream media
> holds a Drudge Grudge. None of the stories in the papers today
> credit him for anything, even though the Drudge Report last weekend
> reported Levinsky's name and that her allegations were on tapes in
> Starr's possession. In light of that alone, it's absurd that Mike
> McCurry won't even address questions that mention Drudge. After all,
> he still takes questions from Time--you know, the guys who explained
> how Richard Jewell bombed the Olympics.
> It's a little odd to realize that in this 25th
> anniversary year of Roe v. Wade the only sex organ that has the
> constitutional right to privacy is the uterus.
> Also in today's Slate:
> For the latest news, check out MSNBC (http://www.msnbc.com).
