Description

A series of stories examining the reporting of the Clinton-Lewinsky story. 1.) A behind-the scenes look at the reporting by Newsweek investigative reporter Michael Isikoff that triggered the most serious crisis of the Clinton presidency. 2.) For Washington journalists, covering the Clinton/intern contretemps meant frenzied, round-the-clock work in a push to score the next microscoop, or at least stay in the game. 3.) Once again coverage of a mega-story was dominated by rumor, innuendo, undersourced stories and snap judgments. 4.) The American public assailed the news media for devoting so much attention to the Monica Lewinsky story, all the while devouring the coverage.
