But according to accounts from reporters who claim to have heard the
infamous tapes, they don't provide evidence that there *are* any "more
serious matters". She talks about screwing around with Cliton, she
says she'll probably lie about it, but according to every reputable
report I've read she *does not* claim or imply on the tapes that
Clinton induced her to lie --- the supposed crime. The only grounds
for believing that he did, at this point, are then a wild-ass guess on
the part of Ken Starr. The rest, as I said, is just tabloid trash.

Although when Newt was taped in a cell-phone conversation violating
the terms of his agreement with the ethics committee about a year ago,
it's amazing how fast the media forgot about the content of the
conversation, and focused on the propriety of taping cell-phones.
