How today's web sites would report the Lewinsky scandal

    With Monica Lewinsky talking to Vanity Fair, Buzzfeed -- which I normally don't like -- put together a very funny display of how today's sites would have reported the Clinton scandal. (Might be NSFW for language.)


    My favorite is the Vox one.

    (And please, people, this thread is about journalism as it's practiced today, not politics. Thank you!)

    I liked the fivethirtyeight one on the statistical probability of staining a dress.

    The most interesting might be the Drudge one which was true. Newsweek
    killed the story that Michael Isikoff was ready to break.

    Perhaps a window into part of reason why Newsweek fell on
    hard times.

    Very funny but also very sad. I know I am being idealist, but I long for the days when the news was reported without slant.

    Those days have never existed.

    Various sports columnists would compare Clinton's non-firing to some industry dipshit being fired for violating a clearly stated term of agreement.

    Don't you have a lawn to defend?
